It’s funny how your perspective can shift based on your surroundings and situation. Tonight I was so thrilled to walk in my door at 10:30 pm. Most Saturday nights I’m bummed that I’m home with no plans at 10:30 pm. We had a day full of fun with our friends but it felt like I was walking through a haze. Last night’s six hours of sleep were clearly not enough.
Someway, somehow I am going to have to learn to handle my stress in a way that incorporates rest and relaxation. It’s not like I don’t have any resources or knowledge about these things! I have a Qi Gong for Stress Relief video. When I actually do the tape I feel very relaxed and sleep pretty well. Knowing that, you’d think I would do it each night before bed. Perhaps tonight I will.
For the last few days my head has felt like it’s a huge pile of mush. A few balls were put into play this week and I am still throwing them up in the air trying to get into a rhythm. I’ve managed to address the stress of the unknown by offering my worries up. Now I just need to write down all of the other stuff that’s clogging up my brain and step by step manage what I can.
This week will be a challenge, but I have what it takes to handle whatever comes along. So do you.
