How often do we associate stress with the Holidays? About having to spend time around family? About the heavy work load that accompanies a large holiday meal?
Recent off the chart high stress and strain in my personal life spurred me to watch my mind body response. I was curious about what it actually required for me to remain, calm, clear headed, focused, action oriented, positive, and to maintain a genuine happy mood - not a fake forced self talk of "all is good" while my inner being is boiling with anger, fear, frustration that shot out sideways to my near and dear loved ones.
This month I decided to observe stress because I’ve noticed it creeping into my life on an almost daily basis whenever I go down to our parking garage. AND, frankly, why not? Every deep, dark corner within me is coming to light these days - so why not stress, too?!
