Today I planned to post the See Jane Run Seattle Giveaway (It's Coming I promise) but I have 2 minutes to post... so I thought I would talk QUICKLY about STRESS!! I found a few quotes on STRESS and DE-STRESSING..
Stress is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness.
For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.
The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it.
Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension.
~Joshua L. Liebman
Is everything as urgent as your stress would imply?
Each day should have a clearly marked emergency exit sign.
Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.
STRESS has taken me over this week, I was PROUD to take the time yesterday to run on my lunch hour with Kerrie. That run helped me sooooo much! I need to run to release the tension and keep me balanced. I notice when I skip those lunch runs because I am "too busy!!"
Another thing that helps me with STRESS is folding laundry..
Call me CRAZY but seeing a big pile of unfolded clothes makes me feel good. It is simple really. I know that I can sit down and slowly tackle the pile, take the chaos and mess and make it orderly and organized. With minimal effort I will see immediate results. In life so many things are out of control, folding laundry I can control.
