Day 34: Drowning

From Diana:
Sometimes we run around like crazy people worrying about all the crap we have to do.  We tend to forget that if we don’t take care of our mind, then we can’t take care of the rest of what’s going on around us.  We drown in all our to-do’s and don’t-forgets.  Some weeks are more stressful than others. Sometimes life is going good… but work can really drain us.  We stress so much that we physically make ourselves sick!  When I’m stressed I get so forgetful and more clumsy…. and of course that adds to the stress. 
I’ve learned to step back and decompress when I really feel like I’m going to explode from feeling so overwhelmed. So…. I run away.  I escape to a massage, a pedicure, a hot bath, a lazy weekend on a comfy couch… basically anything that will help clear my mind.  So far, I’ve learned that it’s OK to step back and take a breather.  Don’t feel like you can’t pause for a day to take care of yourself.
