My # 1 goal!!! I wanted to learn how not to spazz out then I realized for me it would be a lifelong challenge the way an addict has to remain abstinent. I have to avoid stress. I learned through therapy how to schedule my days without stress. I took away my daily to do lists, and made color coded blocks of time for 5 main areas of my life (They are personal, work ,education, chores and cooking/eating). I block out periods of time when I need these things accomplished. I also include any appointments where other people are involved, and things that have due dates. Finally any chores that are very important to get done on certain days are on post-its on the side of my fridge.
The new system scared me the first day and after that its been great. I have been doing this 4 days now and really like it.
I want to do one hour of work today and then shower and head to my friends party , and thats what I am going to do.
I hope this helps anyone with stress!
My friend anthony said he prays everyday, first he thanks then he asks, first thing when he wakes up. IMAGONNA try this…
...it feels like STRESS !!!!!
I am still stressed and the reason is a big career change. I left my horrifically stressful job in social work to be a Real Estate Agent, and job changes always stress me out tremendously.
Also the fact that I am not making any money and therefor need to hustle, but instead of hustling Im procrastinating.
I should be doing a million things right now but have no motivation to do any of them.
Then , when bottom hour hits, I stress.
Well, I just finished my awesomely , famous, Pasta Faglioli as dinner, and I am going to start whatever I can here.
Because all we have , is now.
And all that matters, is love, love, love!
If I can just remember that, Im sure Id stress less.
I really need to master this before I can master any others…
Maybe if I didnt live in the most neurotic area of the USA I wouldnt be so stressed, maybe if I had been born into money, or didnt have annoying ppl in my life, or could leave my job sooner (my last day is on the 28th – I am starting a new job after that and also going into real estate), maybe this , maybe that but this is what I have now. I have now, now. Now is not the time to eat a chocolate bunny rabbit, but I did but not I am pulling myself together.
I am not worrying about all the maybes. I am not getting stressed at all the things that need to be done for me to not be stressed anymore, because I know that stressed is a state of mind, and as fast as I can accomplish some task that needs to be done I can create a new one.
I am not a victim of my own mind I am its dictator, and as of RIGHT now I reclaim control of my mind, and say it will not live in a stressed state.
Ok anytime now why isnt this working
but then frustration is stress
and why am I up at 320 AM when I need to be up at 7 AM for work (and have not gone to bed yet)
GO TO BED ME!
The is first on my list bc I need to overcome my anxiety before I can do anything else. In fact, I’d like to knock off every accomplishment in my list on the level it was placed on bc I made them in order of importance to ME>
this is my biggest challenge and its set at #1 on my list for a reason that is bc if I cannot get past this I cannot accomplish any of my goals. STRESS IS a negative emotion. Its not good thats for sure. I DONT FEEEEL GOOD when I am stressed.
WHEN I AM STRESSEDI AM NOT ME
Ive managed to find the most stressful job anyone can do I am a foster care caseworker. I am hoping to make a career change soon though because this is way more stress than I can even handle.
I hope to get this done before the second item!
Maybe Im stressed bc stress is an indicator that something/one isnt right in my life!!!
