Hi AutismGirl2.

You are presenting the ideal profile for exploration of a genetic mutation
( gene defect), called MTHFR, which may explain your issues including autism,eczema and arthritis.

Should it indeed be the case, if the MTHFR defect is not addressed,
any attempt to effectively deal with stress will bring only temporary results.

Post again or message me for details if interested to know more.

Best wishes.
Niko

You could try stress spray. I used to use Brauer's Nervatona Calm which worked brilliantly.  Worldwide, there is a product that is similar called Bach's Rescue Remedy. I highly recommend the sublingual (under the tongue) spray.

Relax. You deserve it, it's good for you, and it takes less time than you think.

You don't need a spa weekend or a retreat. Each of these stress-relieving tips can get you from OMG to om in less than 15 minutes.

1. Meditate

A few minutes of practice per day can help ease anxiety. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,” says psychologist Robbie Maller Hartman, PhD, a Chicago health and wellness coach.

It's simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting -- out loud or silently -- a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds.











2. Breathe Deeply

Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth.

“Deep breathing counters the effects of stress by slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure,” psychologist Judith Tutin, PhD, says. She's a certified life coach in Rome, GA.

3. Be Present

Slow down.

“Take 5 minutes and focus on only one behavior with awareness,” Tutin says. Notice how the air feels on your face when you’re walking and how your feet feel hitting the ground. Enjoy the texture and taste of each bite of food.

When you spend time in the moment and focus on your senses, you should feel less tense.

4. Reach Out

Your social network is one of your best tools for handling stress. Talk to others -- preferably face to face, or at least on the phone. Share what's going on. You can get a fresh perspective while keeping your connection strong.

5. Tune In to Your Body

Mentally scan your body to get a sense of how stress affects it each day. Lie on your back, or sit with your feet on the floor. Start at your toes and work your way up to your scalp, noticing how your body feels.

“Simply be aware of places you feel tight or loose without trying to change anything,” Tutin says. For 1 to 2 minutes, imagine each deep breath flowing to that body part. Repeat this process as you move your focus up your body, paying close attention to sensations you feel in each body part.

6. Decompress

Place a warm heat wrap around your neck and shoulders for 10 minutes. Close your eyes and relax your face, neck, upper chest, and back muscles. Remove the wrap, and use a tennis ball or foam roller to massage away tension.
“Place the ball between your back and the wall. Lean into the ball, and hold gentle pressure for up to 15 seconds. Then move the ball to another spot, and apply pressure,” says Cathy Benninger, a nurse practitioner and assistant professor at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus.

7. Laugh Out Loud

A good belly laugh doesn’t just lighten the load mentally. It lowers cortisol, your body’s stress hormone, and boosts brain chemicals called endorphins, which help your mood. Lighten up by tuning in to your favorite sitcom or video, reading the comics, or chatting with someone who makes you smile.

8. Crank Up the Tunes

Research shows that listening to soothing music can lower blood pressure, heart rate, and anxiety. “Create a playlist of songs or nature sounds (the ocean, a bubbling brook, birds chirping), and allow your mind to focus on the different melodies, instruments, or singers in the piece,” Benninger says. You also can blow off steam by rocking out to more upbeat tunes -- or singing at the top of your lungs!











9. Get Moving

You don’t have to run in order to get a runner’s high. All forms of exercise, including yoga and walking, can ease depression and anxiety by helping the brain release feel-good chemicals and by giving your body a chance to practice dealing with stress. You can go for a quick walk around the block, take the stairs up and down a few flights, or do some stretching exercises like head rolls and shoulder shrugs.

10. Be Grateful

Keep a gratitude journal or several (one by your bed, one in your purse, and one at work) to help you remember all the things that are good in your life.

“Being grateful for your blessings cancels out negative thoughts and worries,” says Joni Emmerling, a wellness coach in Greenville, NC.

Use these journals to savor good experiences like a child’s smile, a sunshine-filled day, and good health. Don’t forget to celebrate accomplishments like mastering a new task at work or a new hobby.

When you start feeling stressed, spend a few minutes looking through your notes to remind yourself what really matters

With the continuous attraction with doing more and getting more material products individuals are pushing themselves to perform more and more and to dedicate more days per week to the job instead of spending a while off for themselves and their loved ones. The result is an assault of both physical and psychological stress since one's human whole body basically can not continue to function at long periods of your energy and effort without a crack, it starts to crack down when you regularly perform later and later time, miss your holidays and perform saturdays and sundays. Even when you enjoy what you are doing, your human demands a relaxing period and both your psychological and actual well being will suffer if you overwork yourself to the point that even when you do stop perform, the job stress interferes with your capability to relax so your human body never gets to totally reset itself.Job stress can also come from other resources such as disputes that you may encounter with your manager or with other co-workers that can make your work time very traumatic and unpleasant. Whether this issue is serious pestering or merely a serious case of contrasting personalities continuous stress in the workplace can create a lot of job stress.Being in a job or a vocation that is not right for you is also another large factor to job stress. And compared with the job stress that results from disputes at perform or being over proved helpful, the job stress that comes from basically being in the wrong job often becomes more traumatic because the cause of the job stress itself is often unknown. If you are not a individuals person and you are in a place where you are compelled to regularly communicate with the public or if you are a individual that grows on change and new difficulties but you are trapped performing recurring, ordinary projects you will gradually begin to encounter job stress because you are in an atmosphere that is as opposed to your characteristics.Prolonged contact with job stress can lead to insomnia, depression, gas, high hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and a wide range of other help issues. But there are some things that you can do to fight job stress. Devote some days off for yourself and your family, relax and relax. If you find it difficult to chill out trying a hot shower, exercising relaxation, or using aromatherapy such as the rose sleeping mists that you can use to gently apply your bed sheets might help. The rose will help you to relax and relax you off to relax. Do not be afraid to seek solutions to disputes or to begin a new profession if your current one is not putting you in a place to best utilize your own characteristics and abilities. Whatever you choose to do, becoming aware of the job stress and creating a practical plan for fighting it will help you to over come job stress, get the relax that you need, and secure your wellness.

Just pick your battle...handle each stressful situation on its own, don't think about them all at once.  Make a list of what stresses you out and try to think of what you can do to solve it and write your answer next to it to confirm it.  Lots of stressful situations one can’t solve, just write down a reminder that you must not take it personally and think about it too much. I remind myself every day that there are other people much worst off, at least I am not dying.  Stress is part of life.  Take care of yourself by doing things you love…laugh a lot, what you do becomes you
