Stress Level Through the Roof? Here's How to Handle It. | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant

Stress is all around us. It can be found at work, within our finances and even at home.

It seems no matter whether you are a stay-at-home mom, career woman or a Pink Zebra consultant, you cannot hide from stress. Therefore, it is important that you learn techniques that can assist you in controlling stress before it starts to control you!

Give these tips a try to help rein in your stress levels:

Limit Your Caffeine Intake

OK, this one might hurt, especially if you are a coffee drinker. However, coffee contains caffeine, which can increase or exacerbate stress.

Therefore, try avoiding caffeine where you can and replacing it with drink options such as:

  • Diluted natural fruit juices

  • Herbal teas

  • Water, included flavored options

The aforementioned beverages help keep your body hydrated, which can ensure your body is better able to handle any stress that comes your way.

Start Getting More Exercise

It is extremely easy to come up with excuses not to work out. However, who is that really helping? It definitely isn’t helping your ability to handle stress.

When you exercise, you are able to create a calmer, more relaxed state of mind than if you were sedentary, since stress can increase the level of adrenaline and cortisol in your body. Physical exercise can help to bring it back down to a more normal level.

Don’t worry. This doesn’t mean you have to be a runner. There are a number of types of exercise you can do that bring about the same result, such as:

  • Brisk walking

  • Cycling

  • Dancing

  • Playing basketball

  • Swimming

  • Lifting weights

Make Sure You Get Enough Sleep

Although you might think staying up late to finish that project is a good idea, lack of sleep can lead to a very stressful day.

Therefore, it is important to give your brain and body plenty of time to rest each night so that you wake up rested and ready to conquer the day—as well as any stress that might come your way!

Catch Up on Your Spring-Cleaning To-Do List! | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant

Think you just don't have time to do a thorough spring-cleaning for your home? Think again! 

Tackle your spring-cleaning in small doses—and soon enough, you'll have it all knocked out and be ready to add some home decor from Pink Zebra to your sparkling clean home!

Here are some tips to get your home cleaned day-by-day so that you can spend your free time doing other things you love:

Organize Those Cabinets

When was the last time you took a really good look at what is taking up space in your kitchen cabinets? Chances are that you might have food that went out of date years ago. 

Don't worry. You are not alone when it comes to keeping canned foods past the expiration date. But that doesn't mean you should let them hang around forever.

Therefore, use one day to tackle your kitchen cabinets to get them cleaned out and organized so that everything is back to where it needs to be. Toss out the old stuff and organize everything else so that you're able to see items before they expire.

Clean Your Windows

Sure, you are probably good about cleaning your windows on the inside every so often. But how often do you clean the outside?

Really take your spring-cleaning to the next level by cleaning both sides of the windows one day. You will be able to view the beautiful spring days a lot clearer!

Clear Your Countertops

Are your countertops full of clutter? Chances are that they provide the perfect dumping ground for mail, homework, car keys, etc. 

Rather than allowing clutter to pile up over time on your countertops, create a space where mail and other miscellaneous items can be placed so that your countertops remain clear of cutter!

Now that your home is all nice and clean, it is time to add some spring home decor to your home! Check out my latest spring collection on my website.

What Would You Do With Extra Income? | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant

What would additional income mean for your family?

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, there are a number of benefits that being a Pink Zebra consultant can bring not only to you but to your family as a whole.

The Joys of Extra Income

Who couldn’t benefit from some extra cash each month? Let’s take a look at some ways extra income each month could benefit your overall finances:

Improve Your Retirement Fund

Whether you have fallen behind on your retirement fund or you would like to contribute more each month, extra income from a side business like Pink Zebra could help you get your retirement fund to where you would like it to be.

Take Care of Debt

Do you have a debt that you are carrying with you month after month? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could pay your debt off once and for all so that you could start living a life of financial freedom?

By making extra income through a side job like Pink Zebra, you could use the additional money you make to pay off your debt sooner rather than later.

Establish an Emergency Fund

If your car were to break down or an appliance finally gave out, where would you get the cash to fix it? Would you have to put it on a credit card and add to your already existing debt?

Don’t put yourself in that situation—use the extra money you make to build a strong emergency fund so that when these occurrences do happen, you have the money to fix it.

Are you ready to make some extra income on the side? Then being a Pink Zebra consultant might be right up your alley! Contact me today for more information.

Trade a Date Night Out for a Date Night In... | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant

As women, we are extremely busy on a day-to-day basis. Whether you are a Pink Zebra consultant, a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, there are a number of tasks on your plate, which can put spending time with your partner on the back burner. 

But it doesn't have to be that way! There are easy ways to carve out time for you and your love so that you can keep the spark alive.

One such way? A date night in the comfort of your own home. Let's explore some ideas for making it happen!

Separate Dinner Spaces

Family dinners are extremely important, so this idea is definitely not for every night. But, what if once a week, you host a dinner for your kids in the kitchen while you and your love dine in the dining room? (I know, that's a novel idea!)

While the kids can see it as an adventure and their own time without the parents, the two of you can have the enjoyment of an adult-only meal for just the two of you. Set the stage by having your favorite Sprinkles recipe burning while enjoying a delicious meal that your kids wouldn't like to have anyway. 

Nothing Beats Pizza and a Movie

Is there a movie you have been wanting to see that is finally on Netflix or On Demand? Order some pizza and have a movie date night with your love!

While you and your love are enjoying pizza and a movie in bed, your kiddos can be enjoying their own sleepover in the playroom. That'll keep them occupied and having fun, while you are able to spend some quality time with your partner.

Wake Up for Quality Time

The longer the day goes on, the more excuses you can find for not being able to have a date night. Therefore, turn date night into date morning!

Wake up an hour early once a week to enjoy a breakfast just the two of you! While the kids are still sleeping, you can use this time to enjoy breakfast in bed or even sit on the porch with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise. How romantic is that? 

Then, no matter what happens during the day, you have had quality time with your love!
