Today was beyond crazy busy at the office. There was about a minute where I thought I was going to lose it and either cry or scream. Why are jobs so demanding? Why do jobs stress us out so much? I feel like I get pulled in so many directions sometimes. It’s very rare that I go into the office and do what I had planned to do that day.
I work for attorneys. We are in the process of gearing up for a Trial that starts in a week and a half. I love Trial prep. It’s hectic at times, but I love the rush I get from it. Sometimes, we will put in a lot of hours during the week and on the weekends while preparing for Trial. Sometimes I don’t mind putting in the hours, but there are times when I’d rather be at home with the family.
My plate is very full at the moment with work and with my life. At times I feel like I just need 5 minutes of total silence to be able to recuperate and take a moment to breathe without thinking of anything else. My problem is that I don’t know how to relax. I try, but it doesn’t work. I went to a yoga class once. At the end of class we were supposed to just lay still for 3 minutes and just breathe in deep and relax. Those 3 minutes took forever, and I wanted them to hurry up and end so I could get out of there and move on to something else. I must learn how to relax and shut the brain off. I will be working on learning how to relax every now and then.
I know exercising will help release some of the built up stress and tension, another reason I need to find workout time during the week. Maybe I should take up dart throwing again. That used to work for me to relieve some stress when I had a long, hard day at the office. Just picture the person’s face who stressed you out during the day on the bullseye! Bet you will hit it more times than you think!
