So I broke my promise of being better at this Blog Every Day in November challenge but there’s a reason I didn’t blog yesterday which ties in very well with this topic!
Topic #6 is National Stress Awareness Day
According to recent research by Insurance Company AXA, stress levels have doubled in 4 years! That’s an awful lot in such a short period of time. I think it’s important issue to acknowledge, because everyone faces stress in their lives. I know if one stressful thing happens to me, I’m on edge for the rest of the day.
This topic could not be more appropriate for the day I had yesterday. I waited 20 minutes for a bus in the freezing cold, ended up just making it to work on time, I had multiple issues with the tasks I was doing in work, something red dripped on me on the bus, burning me and staining my favourite coat, I lost my scarf, had to go to the doctors after work. prescribed antibiotics for a week for a chest infection and didn’t get home until 8.30pm. I was exhausted and very stressed which makes me snappy to which then I have to apologise to people because I know I’ve been naughty! I usually find taking a few minutes to clear my head and cups of tea very helpful in dealing with stress.
I’m keeping this post short and sweet because I have a lot of housework to catch on.
How do you deal with stress?
