I feel like, if I didn’t feel stressed, I would constantly have a cloud of ‘something is missing’ hanging over my head. It’s there with me through the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s more dependable than most friends (and enemies) I’ve made in my life. It plagues my personal life, my professional life, and even the life I live while I’m asleep and dreaming. Yes, I’m even stressed in my dreams.
However, recently.. I need to find a way to relieve the stress, or at least lessen it considerably, or I’m going to crack. I’m constantly making myself sick with worry, whether or not it’s warranted. I’m trying to turn my life around and get things back on track, but then the dark pit of stress and worry opens up inside and I end up taking way more than just 1-2 steps back on my progress. Half the time, it’s like I’m basically starting over.
Gaming isn’t working. Writing isn’t working. I don’t have a moment of peace to myself to watch a TV series, or a movie, or read a book. I’m at a loss.
How do I destress? How do you destress?
