Only #6 for me. Not to bad. I'm not a stresser by nature. Outside influences over long periods of time build up for me.

10. Compulsion to overwork. Is your office more familiar to you than your backyard? = Yep! That's me lol

Ho does 'relax time' help? It only makes me more antsy... Unless I'm already relaxed which defies the point.
Does anyone have some better ideas about destressing (beside controlling it, I do that already, it's way I'm not raving mad all of the time:))

Guess it's not good that those actually apply to me... Or that I think my friends would recognise me if they read those as a description... Does it help if I've been that way since high school?

I seem to be in no danger here...

Um, this is me. To a T. I am working on it though!

What a wonderful article. unfortunately, I do quite a few things on this list. But, I am going to work to improving in the new year.

Usually a good book and a bath for me.

Unfortunately I see myself having lots of those characteristics! I don't even work outside the home and I have huge problems with these things.

I am guilty of just about all of them. No wonder I have high blood pressure. :-( I saved this article to remind me to LIVE, not merely exist for the little beads on the necklace. Yeesh - I have never worked so much overtime in my life! No more! That is my exercise time! :-)

I wish I could just slow down sometimes and enjoy life.....but even if I do slow down my mind keeps going a million miles a minute about everything I should be doing!

Oh, wait! Since I don't have 3 or 4, that means I also don't really have 9 or 10 either! Whew. :D

Well, darn. Except for 3 and 4 (I have zero competitive streak, and not being concerned with career advancement is the reason I'll never make more money) ;) I have them all! Especially feeling guilty for doing nothing. I can't even manage to stay in a lovely hot bubbly bath for more than 10 minutes before I get "bored" (i.e., antsy). Yikes!

Wow! What a wake up call! Talk about the ultimate reveal! This was definitely eye opening to me. 8 out of 10 and the only reason why I'm not 10 for 10 is because my husband was able to "wean" me from them. Mentally, I have been going back and forth with at least one of them for the past few months as I realize life is too precious and I want as much time to spend with my family.
