1) Delegate, Delegate, Delegate! – It’s your special day, and you no doubt have a very clear vision of how you want it to be. Find one to two trusted friends and share your vision with them. Let them help you with the heavy lifting involved with turning your dreams into reality. That’s fewer details you have to attend to yourself, and you can still keep tabs on the process by checking in at regular intervals.

2) Unplug – As the big day draws nearer, stress levels can bust through the roof. The last thing you want is to be so stressed on the day of the wedding that you can’t enjoy it, so be sure to take time to unplug. Studies have shown that just 15 minutes of medication free of electronics per day can help to significantly reduce your stress levels, and the effect is magnified if you walk in the woods. Unplug, drive to a secluded, wooded area and just let your stress go. It will do wonders for you!

3) Visit Your Chiropractor – You don’t have to wait until you’re suffering from a painful injury to visit your local chiropractor. Any time you’re feeling stressed, make an appointment. He or she can develop a customized plan to help reduce your stress that will leave you smiling and relaxed when the big day arrives!

There are many other things you can do to lower your stress levels, but start with just these three. You’ll be amazed at the difference they make!
