Okay….that’s just funny but in truth….stress doesn’t look good on anyone. The topic of the day is how do I take care of myself when I am stressed? Considering that I have a very stressful job, believe it or not it is ranked as the 5th most stressful job in America. For those who don’t know – I am an Event Planner/Project Manager. Funny thing is I didn’t know it was such a stressful job until other people started pointing it out to me and telling me that they heard where my job ranked in the nation in regards to stress.
I do know a lot of my friends often say, “I don’t know how you handle all this” or “I would lose my mind if I had to deal with that.”. It just seems natural to me. However, I have also learned to decompress and take advantage of the opportunities I get to unwind and stress less. One of the things that I have started this year is Bullet Journal. (I’m loving it by the way!) One of the first things I put in my Bullet Journal was a page on Self Care. It’s important. No, it is more than that. It’s vital to my survival.
So, I highly recommend that you figure out what recharges, reenergizes and resets you body, mind and spirit. Know what things bring you pleasure and joy and make a go to list for yourself so when you are in the middle of being stressed out you know what to turn to decompress and find your center of balance again. Here is my list to get you started:
