It's All About Me
by Lisa Poole on Monday, April 20, 2015
“It’s all about me” sounds kind of egotistical doesn’t it? Aren’t we all? At least just a little bit. This post is not about massage or the goings on at Peaceful Strength Massage Therapy but about what I have been doing lately that is stressing me out….
I have heard that selling and buying a home is the most stressful time you can go through. Well, they ain’t kidding. We have come to a point in our lives where we want to downsize some and change locations so there is more free time to enjoy life. OMG, what the heck was I thinking? The stress has been killer and I am physically feeling the effects. People who live with chronic stress really do suffer physical repercussions. I have noticed in the past few weeks I am not sleeping as well, my weight has gone up (I know I am eating my stress. Twizzlers and ice cream are a favorite), my body aches more than usual, I find it hard to concentrate at times, I am irritable and short-fused, just to name a few symptoms. All this in a few weeks. Can you imagine months or years of stress? No wonder why it is a major cause of disease.
Those that know me know how true this is.
e day maybe I will do a blog on the secret society of hoarders ),
my kiddo is actually keeping his room clean and the rest of my home has never been cleaner.
I am a typical mother with the do as I say and not as I do. I have not taken time for myself. I am way overdue for a massage, I need to meditate, a yoga class would be beneficial, and better diet choices would help. Hopefully, this will all be over by summer and I can finally breathe easy and sleep well again.
In the meantime, we will see more cat family portraits, 1970’s gold shag carpets, and giant bull horns hanging on the paneled walls.
