What do you do when you feel stress creeping up on you? There are the little things that make such a difference: for example I might do things like watching a favorite film, listening to music, having a hot bath or shower, or (my favorite), taking myself out to a particular restaurant and enjoying lunch with a book.
Greater stressors often require greater steps. In my life right now, I have chosen to step away from my personal blog for a time. I did this once before, and it did wonderful things for my stress levels.
Which brings me to a third way we handle stress. What things do you find necessary in the day-to-day, things so routine you don’t think of them as reactionary to stress, but without which you would blow your stack? I write, for one. Writing for me is as necessary as breathing in order to continue in life.
So there’s your topic, go to it! I will be disabling comments on this post, because while I think I had the right concept last month in cross-posting my topic, things got all muddled in the responses. So you will find this text and room to comment by clicking on April 2012: Handling Stress.
