Political stress

Thursday, September 13, 2012

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!!!

    I hear you! I get so frustrated, but you just have to remove yourself completly. Turn it off. And it is not going to help to read because you can't comment on deaf ears:) have a stress free election. Just don't read!
    FB is overrated anyway. I am over it.
