So I stumbled across the fact that it’s National Stress Awareness Month. That’s almost funny, given that it seems nearly everyone I talk to is under more stress than usual.
Here’s my take on it… Stress is inevitable. Life is going to continue to throw us curve balls, so the only thing we can do is have a plan for how to handle it. I used to worry constantly, but at some point I realized that Mary Engelbreit knew what she was talking about.
I’m a woman of action. Despite being a philosophy student, somewhere along the line, I decided that if I can’t do something about it, there’s no point in worrying about it. That changed my stress level significantly.
As for stress management, I have the two best stress busters in the world. It’s hard to stay wound up when the furgirls greet me so enthusiastically and want nothing more than for me to pay attention to them and to lace up my running shoes and head out with them for still more stress reduction in the form of a walk or a run.
What stresses you? How to do you relieve that stress?
