I am in the midst of exams.
I feel like this.
I pretty much have the BIGGEST exams of my whole semester on Monday/Wednesday of next week.
BUT I AM STRESSED…..and I AM A PERFECTIONIST….and..and…and…..
I have learned something about myself….I AVOID STRESS. I try to shove it down, until it comes up like the BP Oil pipe and explodes and then I have a mess.
I forget to wear normal clothes, shower, what mascara is, what non-gluten/sugar laden food, how many cups of coffee is normal. I forget to take care of myself.
I find myself distracted…in an attempt to alleviate the stress that is impeding.
I always tell people I work ‘better under stress’…which is partially true. However, I have let this stress get so high that it’s almost overwhelming. TOO MUCH TO DO.
This maybe true for you in your life. Especially when it comes to weight, eating, running, exercising. Instead of looking at it as a daily small.little.changes—->the focus becomes on the HUGE mountain at the end. Thus, FREAK OUT and nothing done. We go into ‘avoidance tactic’ mode and unilaterally try to stop thinking about what needs to be done. Those are usually never good.
Do you notice that running on a treadmill is not my first choice? (damn it)
So…I am saying ‘I AM STRESSED’…so I am going to be studying my brains out. Not freaking out. Knowing that I’ll get more done then I had expected. I am in control and ready for these exams.
Cause I want to look like this.
Until then…I will be pounding this…cause I can’t be totally perfect.
How do you react to stress?
UNPLUGGING AND GETTIN’ SHIZNAT DONE!!!!
