So some weeks are just worse than others. Some days we can deal with the stress and sometimes we just need to walk away a bit and recharge. It is always good to deal with stress head on. I mean you don't want to bottle it up because at some point you will just explode. Nobody needs that.
I get it. There has not been a whole lot to be happy about in 2020. We just have to try. We need to get past all this and on to how things should be. The normal part of life again. Sometimes we just need to fake that smile until it's real.
Stress, stress all around. We found out a few ways to combat it. Is there more that we can do? Of course. Stress causes so many negative outcomes in our life. Our bodies turn against us. Our brain can't shut off. We can't sleep so we end up just wearing down.
Sometimes stress is a part of life. Especially when you are dealing with a ton of changes. You may have lost your job. Maybe you got sick. Maybe you are worried still about getting sick or how to pay bills.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Right? Isn't that the line from "A Tale of Two Cities?" I would have to admit that is about how we feel about 2020 as a whole. I mean you get it right?
All this time that you have been home and working have you heard of the Quarantine 15? They compare it to the Freshman 15. You know where you gain 15 pounds when you start college because of all the freedom to eat what you want and when.
Zoom meetings have made staying connected during this time a lot easier. For the most part that is. I mean we do get to see our co-workers that we are displaced from. We get to chat with our boss and come up with new ideas. Who would have thought that when 2020 that this would be our reality?
I'm not that old. I'm not. I do know that if I don't get my hair done every now and then I may have a head full of gray. Why is that? I have a child. Duh! Having kids it great but they do stress us out a bit.
