I'm getting married in less than 90 days and my anxiety and stress is at an all time high trying to finish getting things paid for and finalizing small details. What some good ways in relieving stress? (I've surpassed the drinking wine stage.)

    Exercise, get those endorphins flowing. Get a massage or do yoga, clear your mind. Set aside 1 day a week not to focus on wedding planning, it's for you mental health. Breathe, 90 days is plenty of time.

    I second exercise. I blast music loud enough that I can’t hear my internal to do list!

    If you have the time and money I definitely recommend a day at the spa where you can be alone and just fully relax.

    Take breaks from planning, go out, read a book, exercise and do something that you enjoy doing. You'll energy will be restored when you go back to planning.

    We're date twins! Every time I get one thing done, I think of 5 more that I need to do. Smiley xd I've been exercising and reading a lot to relieve the stress. I keep reminding myself that it will all get done, and all that matters is that I'm not scrambling at the end. Smiley smile

    Make a list with items most necessary at the top, least necessary at the bottom : (i.e. top: paying off venue, bottom: getting nails done). Try to work your way down the list and get as many of the things closer to the top done sooner, worry about things closer to the bottom later. That will help with your jumbled thoughts when thinking of things you need to do. As far as stress - I'm terrible with coping with it, sorry. I literally cry to my FH every night before bed because I'm so stressed out. My wedding is next month. I recently started a whole food diet and it seems to help a lot. I've been avoiding sugar, dairy, processed foods, and preservatives when I can. I've also nixed alcohol except for special events, and I've been journaling a lot. Good luck!

    I agree with Hannah about making a list will really help. I know for myself, when I get one thing to check off my list I do a little happy dance and celebrate that little victory. Also, exercise is one of the best things to do. Maybe sexy time with the FS might help?? I would also suggest doing a bubble bath with candles and bath bombs, the whole nine yards. You don't get to think about the wedding at all during that time though. That's the rule! LOL Maybe that will help? Don't forget to take breaks too!
