sunday check in #23

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Does anyone remember why I started these Sunday check in's?

It was because so many of us were struggling and I thought it would help to check in on Sundays.

Only a few of you still do.

I'm gonne keep doing it though because I need to. I still struggle. I like routine. I care about you and want to know how you're doing. So, I will be here. Talk soon.

Your homework this week is to destress. Tell me what you're gonna do to achieve that.

    hey there! I am de-stress by turning down invites that don't work for me, even if frowned upon by fam or others. sometimes, you just gotta say no, and take it down a notch. That's my plan, anyway! hope you are well! Merry Christmas!

    Hi doll. I haven't been checking in anywhere, with anyone, lately. I think of you, though. I hope your colonscopy went well. I hope your stress level is down. I am glad you are feeling more caught up about the holidays. I am off on a road trip to see my d.i.l. and grandbabies (very excited) and will bring my daughter Lexi home with me for Christmas - I'm anxious to see her and she asked if we could come early, which was sweet, since she is anxious to see us, as well. I am thinking of you, Miss Jan.

    Destress? What is that? I need to google it. Ugh.

    Looks like I'm on my own for my parents' Christmas outing. (I have a huge family. Where is everybody?) I can't tell you how stressed I am about that. No idea how I'll handle it all and how I'll survive it. Oh well, I'll figure it out as I go. Ugh.

    I personally love your Sunday checkins!

    My Challenge is focusing on de-stress this week. I am breathing...stopping to close my eyes and breathe deeply...in and out...and it is helping every time I do it. Maybe I'm oxygen deprived! :)

    I like these check-ins, but have been lazy in posting. emoticon Destressing is fairly easy this week as I don't have much to do expect pack for a trip to my parents for the holidays, bake, visit with a friend and go on said holiday. I am thankful for this.

    My test will be how I eat on my holiday.

    I am going to skip a meeting today that would do nothing but make me annoyed and angry. They don't need me there and I am not driving 45 minutes one way to be annoyed for 2 hours and then drive 45 minutes home. I am also going to try very hard to stop focusing on the fact that we have not yet been paid this month by any of our associates (we work for ourselves from home) and it has made Christmas less than joyful. I am going to try to let that go because Xmas is coming whether a check does or not. ;-)

    Jan, I appreciate you keeping this going. I, for one, am always struggling and will always struggle. I know your stress is around doing so much for everyone in a big way. My stress is primarily around work and my interactions with my supervisor. Last week was a bad one, but I made some conscious decisions about de-stressing. 1) I vented to two sympathetic colleagues (talking really helps me), and 2) I realized that this supervisor holds financial power over me (re cost-of-living increase and bonus) so no matter how much I want to express my anger and frustration, the money is more important. I did calm down, but I still had to fight the desire to calm myself with food. I almost succeeded. I had a daiquiri and sweet potato fries, but it stopped there.

    What are you doing to de-stress?
