Page 327 of 365: Stress/Relax Balance



Balance is a tricky thing to manage – when to eat healthily and when to treat yourself, when to go out and when to have an early night and when to worry about work or relax.

I’m not very good at relaxing.

I was talking to my mum about it last night – I always feel like because I have so many deadlines approaching, that any time I spend not working is time wasted. To be honest, I consider blogging working because I have to do it every day (and I put it on my to do list) but I’ve also got four assignments due in that I’ve barely started working on yet, I’ve got Christmas presents to buy and blog posts for three different blogs to write and then I worry about people as well (which doesn’t make it better).

I worry about the people in my flat that are ill, I worry about my family at home and being so far away from them, I worry about my friends, I worry about everything and everyone and the stress is really starting to get to me.

I just want to pause everything for a week – just have a week where no time actually passes (so I’m not wasting time) and I can sleep, mostly, maybe do some creative writing like I haven’t in three months.

Even if I gave myself a week off now, I’d just end up with more work to do because I’d have to catch up on the week I missed, plus find a week’s worth of assignment work in a matter of days.

Everything is a bit much right now. Let’s just say I’m looking at Christmas as my incentive right now, because even this weekend I have at home coming up is packed jam full.

Thank you for reading,
