Stress please go away

As an employee, stress and pressure have become my 'friends'. Like it or not, I gotto deal with it.
What will you do when you're feeling stress?

Here's what I personally do:
1. Talk to a friend
2. Update my status in Facebook, and reading incoming comments =)
3. Rant it out at my blog (like what I'm doing now)
4. Listening to some RnB music and turn it on loud
5. Painting my nails
6. Sweat, through yoga/jogging or doing house chores
7. Eat
8. Retail therapy. Be it shopping or window shopping ^^
9. To be alone for a moment, deep inhale and exhale (Sometimes, I find this method works the best)

Any tips to share with me?

  3. Hi Hayley, this is an interesting post.
    Stress is a real killer here in North America.
    And the biggest culprits are bosses who create or give stress to employees, all for or towards their selfish means.

    Actually there is no reason for bosses to give employees stress as it affects health and productivity.
    I one time looked after 12 companies throughout SEA with couple of thousand employees...

    And our kinds of business from Engineering works, manufacturing, construction, logging, mining and marketing had datelines, timetables to meet....and all involved millions $$$.

    And yet, being the boss, I never gave stress to anyone! My employees create their own stress if they do not meet their own work schedules.
    As mentioned, I have never phoned, called any employee at home. No reason too.

    I repeat, stress is a killer. It can kill! High blood pressure to name one. As well stress leads to many diseases, all killers!

    When at work if you find the going tough, go out for fresh air. I rather you not talk to another employee as he or she will also relate to you about their own stress, making you feel worse.

    Go make or get yourself a hot cup of tea, or green tea...and during break, read any book or about fashions, not read anything that will add more stress to you.

    Do like what you have in the pic here, lie down on the grass if can, look at the clouds, whatever.
    Do something, anything to get your mind of work.

    I had a lot of stress too old days....but in my car was my fishing rods. And at any opportunity will do some fishing. Fishing is one of the best forms of relaxation.

    Oh ya, get a small aquarium....look at the will relax you.
    And remember, stress is a killer...
    You stay easy, keep well. Lee.

  4. Eat....reduce stress for me cooking as well! LOL!

  5. Hayley,
    everybody have to face it, there is no running from it.
    just hang in there my friend.
    take care and love yourself more.

  6. I eat chocolates when under stress. Then I'll gain weight and under stress again. LOL!

    I like to see pressure and stress as part of our challenging life. Learn to look-openly (看开??) helps a lot for me.

  7. Hayley, I hate stress too, because I tend feel stress like you.

    Your list is good, I just want to add somemore..
    11. Go for a massage, hair wash, and facial. Travelling can be quite tiring too.
    12. Sleep like tomorrow is Sunday.

  8. i love retail therapy to beat the stress. or go for a holiday :)

  9. What work best for me?

    1. Chocolate
    2. Have a nice bath
    3. Listening to the radio
    4. Have a nice sleep

    Just don't think about it and keep relaxing my mind and soul!

  10. Reanaclaire, yes, it will go off the next day.. Thanks and I'm alright!

    Alice Law, agree in most of the points...

    Lee, thanks for the long comment! Look at the fishes? Ok, will consider this ^^

    Pete, guess eating really helps in reducing stress huh!

    Johnnie L, I understand, stress is part of our life. Thanks and you take care too!

    Yvonne, good that you can see it in a positive way =)

    Yan, thank you! I am thinking to invest in the diffuser ;)

    Barbara, retail therapy helps me too!

    AngelineBK, sometimes when I'm stress, I cant sleep =(

  11. I used to panic like mad whenever I'm stress, nowadays I just try to relax a little more, handling stress is nt that difficult afterall ~

  12. Hi Hayley,

    I actually do some from your list except for number 5,6, and 7.

    Rilex yeah....take a deep breath...

  13. It's been quite a while since I last had work pressure and stress hehe... almost forgotten what it felt like :p I think shopping and window shopping was one of my fav activities to beat stress. I remember heading straight to the mall after leaving my office :)

  14. dblchin, I wish to think like you. But sometimes its not easy...

    Willie, thanks! You have a nice day!

    ChloeRuoyi, yes, shopping can be a good one! ^^

  15. too,stress until headache,if can i wish have 1 week holiday now=='

  16. Hwi Yee, I wish also~ But what to do? Life goes on...

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
