10 Ways To Cope With Wedding Stress
All brides and grooms know that their wedding day will be one of the happiest days of their lives. However, the weeks and months leading up to the day can be one of the most stressful periods of your life. Stress, in small doses, is actually good for us; it incites the fight or flight response which kick starts your motivation, boosts your brainpower, improves your immune system, and helps you to get things done.
During the course of planning your wedding you’ll still have your usual work, home, and social commitments to fulfil, so you may find that things are getting on top of you. If your stress becomes prolonged and chronic it can begin to have a negative impact on your mental and physical health.
Symptoms of stress include feeling more anxious and irritable than normal, having trouble concentrating, headaches, dizziness, sleep problems, and changes to your usual eating pattern. Noticing the signs of stress early on can help you to make some changes, such as asking your friends and family for more help with things.
