I’m under the gun to get a BIG project done. I won’t deny that I’m feeling a bit pinched. I find myself holding my breath as I work. I stare at my computer screen and let the creativity flow through my fingers (and watch it sometimes NOT flow). I nibble rather than have a meal. My back and hips hurt. Not a great plan for someone with fibromyalgia. Relaxation? Um, I will when I’m done.
Does this sound like you when you’ve got a laser focus on a specific project? You think, “I’ll get back to life” when it’s complete?
And the real irony? Drum roll here …. My project is about stress. Nope, not kidding. More to the point, it’s about managing and mitigating stress.
Years ago, when my body fell apart, I finally figured out that stress was a big contributor to my problems. I had no idea what I was doing to myself just by the nutty nonsense going on in my head. I somehow thought I should be able to “do it all” but was acutely aware that I was failing left and right.
Sometimes I’m a bit late to catch on – especially when it’s my own experience. It’s always easier to see other people’s “stuff” and to be blind to your own. Have you ever been blind to your own stuff when it comes to stress? That’s rhetorical, BTW. We all have.
So, here’s a question you can answer:
What’s your FAVORITE
relaxation and stress-relieving activity or tip?
