‘Is it common to have wobbles, feel frazzled, panic a bit just because life is awfully hectic?
I fear that I’ve lost my way and am unable to maintain my usual rate of Postings.
How do I bring in new work when I feel like this?
Going with the flow and just trying to accept it, is all that I can do at the moment.’
I read this Post from A N Other and commented thus: ‘I always TRY to act on my inner voice, and frankly, when I don’t, bigger shit usually drops’.
Are you feeling a little like this right now?
Do you sense that this time of year can be ridiculous and that you can’t do it all, or can’t do what you believe is expected of you?
When I became ill with Shingles in September, I completely gave in to it.
I knew that I had to.
Work was put on the back burner.
If I’m not sending out the right message, my clients would notice, and that’s not productive.
It also served me time to revaluate my life.
So yes, when you feel frazzled, take time off.
If you don’t then there are various scenarios which will play:
- You burn out and become ill.
- You take longer to recover.
- You discover if you are fortunate, that things need to change.
This is a crazy time of year and I’d like to share my personal reflective few lines…..
This Christmas my family are changing the usual present sharing routine. We have a wedding to go to in Australia in the Spring.
We will have a small gift to open on Christmas day, and put the usual money we might spend on each other into our holiday fund.
It’s like the message from days gone by, when our children or nieces and nephews were given money, smiled at and told:
‘’Put this in your holiday fund and spend it on something nice’.
My message to you is please take breathing space because it will help you to be less stressed.
Please enjoy my gifts to you.
An EFT routine and Visualisation audio to help relieve Christmas stress.
The added bonus to reducing stress at this time is that chronic health symptoms may not pop up to fell you just before you serve up Christmas dinner.
Chronic health problems flair when a stress is over.
