LEARN TO ... decompress
Stress ... Life is full of it. Never have we been more micro-managed, monitored, tested, watched and judged. And yet, more and more is expected of us as we live our lives - children's activities and assessments, hobbies and the like ... job security issues ...
You may find that your existence has been squeezed into a tiny space, a micro-slot of leftover time ...
Learn to love yourself. Learn to set some time aside for yourself. Negotiate with family, children. Beg, borrow, steal time ... e.g. do turn-taking for lifts to clubs and activities , bulk cook and cook ahead so you have a meal ready, from the freezer, at least one night a week, where there's no cooking - just reheating. Get you children to help clear the table etc. Then use your accrued time wisely, to DECOMPRESS.
