By positive we don’t mean the ‘Yes Man’ kind of people, who will simply agree to whatever you say. When you’re already going through a mess, it’s good to have calming and reassuring people around you. Surround yourself with people who keep a positive attitude even in times of crises and provide practical solutions.
Take Up Exercising and Focus On Getting Fit
Take up some light exercising or go brisk walking to drive away your attention from all the madness surrounding your wedding planning. To calm your nervous breakdown on or before the wedding day simply get up and go brisk walking this should help to lower the anxiety. Days or months preceding your wedding join the gym or do some home exercising to distract your mind and focus more on getting fit to look like a diva on your day.
Eat Well and Sleep Well
Never skip breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day. Also, DO NOT CRASH DIET, this will just make you crankier and increase the chances of a nervous breakdown. Eat substantial meals.
Get at least 7-8 hours of good sleep. If you’re having difficulty sleeping and getting enough rest, indulge in things that relax you like reading a novel, sipping on a cup of tea, lighting fragrant candles or burning aromatherapy oils or simply taking a long and relaxing bath.
Plan Ahead Of Time
Keep a planner handy and if you’re managing certain details of your wedding, for example say decoration, ensure last minute details are covered a day or two before the wedding. But, if you are to be too occupied with pre-wedding functions delegate the task to someone responsible, it could be your any of the elder members of your house or catch hold of your cousins.
There will be times you may get super worked up and decide to gulp down a whole bottle of your favourite poison on your bachelorette party just to ease the tension. As tempting as it may get, avoid it if you do not want to be a hangover bride. If you feel like taking a quick sip of champagne just before your wedding to drive away those jitters, it’s absolutely okay. A sip or even a glass is fine, but not more.
Relax and Enjoy
