Two more days to go before I get back to work and I can already see myself getting sucked in the vortex of work, timelines, deadlines, late evenings, weekends gone. Atleast, the first year of the month has been a success. Well, what can you do if you are limited to your room. But, I spent a lot of time reading with 5 books already done and some half read. I spent time with the children. I liked the relaxed atmosphere wherein I didn’t really have to rush through every activity before getting onto that meeting which has already started. Would it not be fun, if all days were like this? Would we appreciate it if all days were the same? We may have something else to crib about.
I am grateful to my job which gives me financial independence and flexibility to indulge in my hobbies, besides giving me satisfaction of having a job well done. However, one of my resolutions this year has been to reduce stress. So, let me take a few deep breaths, close my eyes and relive my life in slow motion. Most of the times, I remember the wonder women who do all these and yet look perfect, with not a hair out-of-place. They love to flaunt their perfect lives making you feel even more miserable. And do not go by those Facebook photos. Lately, I have realised that such a woman does not exist. I have searched, but not found anyone. Maybe, there is one. But, 99% people just aspire to be her and fail trying, triggering another stress attack.
I follow a different motto in life now. As long as you and the family are healthy and happy, everything else can be sorted out or can wait.
Do you also feel stressed? How do you handle it?
