Here is another thought about stress, politics. This is not going to be who to vote for or why but we do not think of politics as a stress point. Well, I do. I have found my ears become burning red. My heart starts pounding and I even start to feel dizzy. This is a good indication that I am becoming stressed. I tried to stay out of it. I tried to NOT read all of the posts that smoother Facebook but let's face it, easier said than done right now. I tried pulling away and retreating to my own somewhat perfect world but I got sucked back in with the shear mention of politics. This has become a big stress trigger for me. I have been staying up late, not because I am enjoying a good book but because I am reading ALL the posts to ALL the posts! Now, that statement will only make sense if your on FB. LOL. Anyway, what I need to do is turn off the Facebook and the politics at a certain point and retrain by brain to shut off at a certain time. Well, I guess the latter first, then the first second. Hey, it makes sense in my head. But my point is valid and something I am going to do starting tonight. Off with FB and off with politics for my own bit of stress relief! By the way, I have a very personal motto that I like:
GOTTA DO WHATCHA GOTTA DO! In this case, doing it for just me!!!
