One small change is all I need
Tuesday, December 25, 2012
I have written many blogs to myself about taking time to take care of myself, but yet I push on doing more and more for others. I wear the stress on my sleeve which isn't the way I ever thought I would be living. Now it is time to make just some little changes like spark guy has preached so often.
I teach special needs and so often come up with just the slightest changes to try for two weeks so we can see if we impacted the behavior at all. I have gone to conference after conference where they talk about making just small changes and I think I am doing that. Now I understand that I just kept adding to my stress and what I need to do is start finding ways to diminish it.
Step 1 - Am I really helping if I am stressed out. No, so I need to make things easier!!
Step 2 - Say NO!! I often let others talk me into doing things I really don't have time to do.
Step 3 - Breathe!!! Yes, my asthma is awful to the point of being hospitalized this year! Breathing sounds easy for anyone who doesn't asthma. I know the stress affects my breathing.
Step 4 - Love and love with my whole heart!
Step 5 - Relax = Take time to just sit and be still and enjoy breathing!!!
Step 6 - Remember I am only one person and I need to ask for help sometimes!!!
2013 I am going to change my behavior so that life becomes the blessing it truly is!!!
