Stress

It’s Wednesday and each morning this week I started a new post.  As you can tell I never finished and or published Monday or Tuesday.  Wednesday is a new day.

Today; a brief note about stress.  Don’t let it get to you.  Last week I failed to follow that advice and boy have I paid the price.

My brain went into a complete fog.  I spent the last couple of days on auto pilot, which in my job is very hard to do.  For those who don’t know, I drive a school bus.  A substitute school bus.  That means when someone has time off or doesn’t show, I jump in a bus and go.   I like that phrase, think I’ll use it elsewhere.  In the last two days I was four different people.

It was not just my brain that stopped working. I stopped physically as well.  Being in a fog I got nothing accomplished.  That stressed me out even more, which made my absolutely wonderful IBS kick into gear.  This time around it went into turbo.  Add in the new way I am eating and I had no idea what to eat that would help.  That added more stress which in turn compounded the situation.  It took a friend yelling at me and a terribly painful afternoon bus ride to bring me to the extreme end to the problem.  DONE

I feel so much clearer this morning. I am focusing better and my stress level is at zero.  I am going to study and practice Reiki more.  Being new at it, I don’t think I was able to focus enough to help myself.  I’m going to ask for help to clear things out and I will be able to keep the stress at bay next time.

My advice to you today is: Learn what you need to do to keep stress from taking over.   Meditate, Pray, Shut off the TV, Exercise, Relax in a bubble bath, Make a playlist of de-stress songs and let them take you away.  What ever it takes DO IT.  Eating, drinking, or drugs are not options obviously.
