Unapparently, I am stressed these days. And God forbid, I guess the hassles will be carried on until the first few weeks of 2010. I worry a lot and am anxious of most things concerning work, finances and domestic problems indirectly involving Tina and Gabby. Who doesn’t have problems, anyway? My greatest consolations and things to be grateful to God are having a sickness-free family and their support & much of love that like batteries–keeps me going! 😀
I have to write it down to make it at least tangible, so as to remind myself of what to do and how to cope with life’s daily challenges.
Here’s my prescription to myself :
Do you think you need one too?
Not so long ago, I took a chance in an interview in a healthcare company and I can still recall vividly the question of the HRD manager which I honestly answered :
“What do you do when you’re stressed ?”
I told her in a heartbeat : “There are 3 things I do when I’m stressed, first I pray, second I try to pause and remember how my son giggles or laughs, and third I indulge -in food and blogging. Then when I’m collected I begin to think critically and analyze what needs to be done.”
I may sound too preachy when in fact I’m not-so-religious, but I really turn to Him when I’m troubled.
Sometimes, which I think should be done always, I even thank the Lord for problems; I believe He will not challenge us if we cannot bear it. Do we think the same?
What about you? How do you cope up with stress?
God bless all of us this holiday and the coming New Year! 😀
Have a worry-free Christmas, above and beyond our toxicities! 😀
