Dealing with Stress - My Way
Much of the population is dealing with stress - the biggest culprit of today.
My personal stress level on a scale of low to high would be med/high, while other people would rate theirs medium. We each have different levels where it kicks in and throws us for a loop.
Why Am I Feeling This Way?
A few weeks ago I received a call around 6:30 a.m. from my 39 year old daughter saying she thinks she may have had a mini stroke. I flew out of bed and took her to Emergency, and yes she did indeed have a full blown stroke AND two more in three days! There was blood clot behind her eye! The day before she was discharged the tests found she also had a hole in her heart, which was likely there at birth.
Meanwhile during this week her Dad had three doctors' appointments between hospital visits.
Everyone returned home things are going pretty good.
Next, another call after 6:30 a.m. saying we had to take Dad to Emerge. Since then he has been moved to Palliative care and we visit daily to keep his spirits up.
Do I Cope well with Stress? No.
Ways I Personally Cope … not for everyone.
I grab a book and just chill out, get into the story (fiction) and away from thinking so much about my troubles.
Not for everyone - but I love making homemade soup and I create some interesting mixes that seem to go over well.
Like I said, these are my personal little traits that help me - you will find your own.
When I'm busy I tend not to think a lot about current levels of anxiety. Some weeks I should have the cleanest place in town.
Just taking my dog Molly out for a stroll around the Avenues helps as she explores under every pile of leaves she can find. I have to laugh and this releases what's going on with life.
We all have our own way of dealing with daily life so find an activity that keeps that stress level down for you.
