As a single, working mom, I'm an ideal candidate for stress. As a workaholic sort, I have to make a conscientious effort to decompress and enjoy life. It's not easy for me.

Recently, I was babysitting two of my grandchildren. For the first half of the morning, my thoughts were on getting things done so I could work.

Basically, the goal meet the kids' basic needs so I could stick my face in the laptop. But something else happened along the way. 

The older kids were riding bikes. Then, the toddler joined them outside to play on the trampoline. I was taking pictures and videos. Later, my 2-year-old granddaughter wanted to play - with me. She wanted me to chase her, then tickle her. Snuggle on the bed. Tickle some more.

I knew that was more important than working. So I played with her most of the afternoon. What happened next was amazing.

I felt my body relax. I felt my mind relax.

I suffer from chronic muscle pain, most of it brought on by my own behavior. I work to much; stress too much; and don't put in enough time enjoying life. I do all the things that cause muscles to ache.

But not that day. I didn't have a bit of pain all day. Why? Because I was relaxing and enjoying my family.

I stopped thinking about work.
I stopped worrying about clients.
I chose to just enjoy those grandbabies.

So today I want to talk to you about stress relief.
