Beat Stress as a Busy Woman: 5 Easy Techniques to Take Back Control

Hey there, beautiful BC Style & Crafts readers! It's your resident health and nutrition cheerleader, Ms. Gigglebyte, here to dish on a topic that hits close to home for all of us phenomenal women: conquering stress!

Let's be honest, juggling work deadlines, family commitments, that overflowing social calendar, and on top of it all, rocking a healthy lifestyle – it's enough to make even the calmest among us want to scream. But fret no more, my fabulous friends! Today, I'm sharing my tried-and-true toolbox of stress-busting techniques that will have you feeling like the cool, collected, and radiant queen you are!

Self-Care is Your Superpower:

We all know the drill – "me-time" often gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. But listen up, ladies: self-care is not a luxury, it's a necessity! Whether it's a long, luxurious soak in a warm bath with calming essential oils, a mindful walk in nature, or simply curling up with a good book and a cup of herbal tea for 15 minutes – prioritize activities that nourish your soul. Remember, a well-rested, rejuvenated you is a stress-slaying superhero!

Mindfulness: Your Moment of Zen

Feeling overwhelmed? Take a deep breath, beautiful! Mindfulness is your secret weapon. It's all about being present in the moment, focusing on your breath, and letting go of worries. When stress starts to creep in, find a quiet corner, close your eyes, and take slow, deep breaths, feeling your belly rise and fall with each inhale and exhale. Just a few minutes of mindful breathing can work wonders for calming your mind and body.

Fuel Your Body, Fight Stress:

Did you know your diet plays a starring role in your stress levels? Absolutely! Superfoods packed with antioxidants, like blueberries, leafy greens, and brightly colored fruits, are your Beat Stress as a Busy Woman allies. They help reduce inflammation in the body, a sneaky contributor to feeling overwhelmed. Plus, don't underestimate the power of staying hydrated! Dehydration can leave you feeling sluggish and irritable, so keep a reusable water bottle by your side and sip throughout the day.

Move It or Lose the Stress!

Exercise is your stress-busting BFF! Physical activity releases endorphins, those feel-good chemicals that boost your mood and melt away tension. Whether it's a power walk in the park, a heart-pumping Zumba class, or a relaxing yoga session, get your body moving every day. Find activities you enjoy, even if it's just dancing around your kitchen to your favorite tunes!

Bonus Recipe: Summer Berry and Herb Refresher

This smoothie is bursting with the taste of summer and packed with stress-fighting benefits. Fresh berries are in season and loaded with antioxidants, while the addition of herbs like mint adds a refreshing twist.


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (protein for sustained energy)

  • ½ cup frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)

  • ½ cup fresh cherries, pitted (sweetness and vitamin C)

  • ½ cup chopped cucumber (hydration and coolness)

  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves (stress-reducing and digestion aid)

  • ½ cup coconut water (electrolytes and hydration)


Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add a splash more coconut water or a few ice cubes. Pour into a glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint for an extra refreshing touch!

Remember, beautiful BC Style & Crafts queens, taking care of your health and well-being is key to managing stress and living your most vibrant life! Stay tuned for more health and nutrition tips from yours truly, Ms. Gigglebyte!
