Handling Stress

I have been feeling quite discouraged lately. That is the reason I have not been keeping up as well with my blogs. There are so things going on in my life at the moment and they are not good things. So it causes me to pull back, so to speak. I don't know if that is bad or good, but I have always done that in my life. It is my way of handling stress.

One thing I have been doing is to try to do something my mother taught me. She would tell me to make a list of all the things I could do to change the situation. Then you have an idea of where you are at. When things are tough, we have to do what we can do. If it was just me, I think I could handle it better. But having others involved makes it a bit harder for me. Worrying about others, makes choices different.

What do you do when you get stressed out? Do you have a way to handle it? Some people like stress and thrive on it. Are you one of those people? I wish I was! But I am not. Sometimes I head outside and do some garden work or hang out with my horses to try to concentrate on something else. It doesn't take the problems away, but maybe gives me a few hours of peace.

Hope to get this worked out soon and have my life back to normal.
