Dealing with Stress!

Monday, April 01, 2013

So, just get through the holidays and onto my New year's resolutions, get a touch of the flu....will winter ever end in Minnesota? Then I lose my job! Talk about a stress enabler!! I didn't go to the gym for over 2 weeks. Why not? I was free every day, wasn't I? But stress turns to panic turns to depression turns to can't move off the couch.
Wait for unemployment to get approved, wait for that last severance check, wait to see how the budget is going to be managed for the next month, wait for call backs on job postings, wait, wait, wait! UGH!!
I'm pretty hard on myself, but this is the pits. With a couple of interviews set up, I'm getting to the gym every other day, and with the weather getting a little warmer, can at least walk the dog.
I have to stop the "waiting" trap, and just keep moving. Things will happen when they happen, but sitting at home worrying about it won't make the changes come any faster. Gaining more weight will happen for sure, losing weight will happen with work. Exercise also helps relieve stress, increases endorphins and confidence, which I will need for these interviews.
On to a new month, a new regime, and (fingers-crossed) a new job!!

    I understand where you are totally.
    After 11 years I was made redundant and thought the world was going to come to an end. I accepted a temp assignment which lasted for 14months and then I was offered my current position which has been a revelation to me.
    Keep your chin up and focus on what you want to achieve. It will come.
    Best wishes for your job hunt.

    It's supposed to hit 50 this week! I'm sorry you got sick when the weather is getting warmer. I understand losing jobs, we did while I was pregnant...

    You'll find a new job and hopefully it'll be one you really enjoy!
