Stress. We all have it. But sometimes we don’t slow down enough to see it creeping up on us. How many times have you looked back and said, “Oh yeah, I guess there WERE red flags waving at me…”So how do you know if you’re stressed—I mean really stressed? Well, in order to avoid a full on meltdown, I’m sharing with you a little visualization I do with myself when I feel things starting to get overwhelming. The interesting things is that I often think I’m handling it ok and when I tune in, I find out I’m not.
I’ve taken off Mondays every week for years. There’s a reason for it: Mondays are for me. It’s quiet in the house—my husband is at work, my kiddo is at school. I don’t work on anything that has to do with my business. I turn off my phone, turn on the meditation music. I make a fantastic cup of tea that I enjoy hot and steaming(not forgotten and cold). All of the Monday business needs are done in advance. I just breathe and let go.
