Trouble sleeping?

Everyone has times of stress when sleep eludes you.  Pregnancy brings the added sleep problems relating to position, aches and pains.  You may find yourself restless and unable to sleep in spite of being exhausted at the end of the day.  Here is a non-pharmaceutical relaxation technique which can result in better sleep.  Try Progressive Muscle Relaxation.   More sleep info in pregnancy can be found here.

You will find many other stress-relieving techniques as well such as Yoga, Meditation, Water Exercises, and deep breathing, as well as stress relief tips.

Sometimes other things in our lives cause stress without our being aware of them.  Clutter can do this to you.  This site addresses Clearing the Clutter
Clutter can be a chronic source of stress. The stress of being surrounded by clutter often isn't realized until the clutter is removed and we feel the relief of being clutter-free. Clutter bombards the brain with excessive visual stimuli, creating stress. Clutter makes it more difficult to relax or to focus on anything because clutter is an irritating distraction. Even those who seem oblivious to their surroundings are aware of everything in their environment on a subconscious level. Your brain is constantly filtering messages from all your senses.
