Webster’s defines stress as
We all have stress in our lives, what makes the biggest difference is how we deal with that stress (or don’t deal with it). I decided to write about stress this week because I have made quite a few changes to my life that include a full-time undergraduate schedule and two part-time amazing job opportunities that I love on top of launching my health coaching business. As I see this written out I think wow, why am I not crazy stressed.
Sure I feel a bit nervous about the future and wonder what the heck was I thinking every once in a while, having faith has helped me get through those moments. I also noticed that even though I have a lot on my plate I enjoy all of it. I mean who doesn’t want to learn about E. coli or help develop a group program or learn about why raspberry keytones are the latest diet craze. Having a crazy busy schedule doing things you hate can drain you worse than any energy vampire.
So what I am saying is do what you love. Even if you can’t do it full time find some time somewhere in your day, week or month to include an activity or a project that makes you feel good. There are no rules or judgements here, it can be whatever speaks to your heart as long as it’s authentic.
Let me know what you do that makes your heart sing.
