Stress

I always tell people “No I’m not stressed” in reality I really am. For the past week my eye lid has twitched. Every 5 seconds my eye lid would twitch. I can not even explain how annoying it was to have my eye lid twitch at least a thousand times a day. I had no clue that stress could do that to your body. Stress is can do some crazy things to your body. Hives, twitches, emotional break downs, upset stomach there’s many more ways stress can affect your body.

I know I am stressed. I am going through a lot of changes at work and in my life personally. I used to care a lot more at my job. I still give 110% at work, however; I changed my attitude to not care as much as I use two. My work puts so much stress on me with the work load and changes that is happening right now and I have decided it is not worth the amount of stress it is. My attitude towards work is “It is what it is and I just work their”.

As soon as I changed my attitude about work I came home and relaxed. A nice long hot shower and a great nights rest was exactly what I needed. The next day my eye-ball twitch was gone! Stress will always be in my life, if it’s about money, kids, life in general it is always their.

The best advice I was given this past week was to take some time to myself to relax and let out my stress. If you are feeling stressed go for a message, get your nails done, take a hot shower or bath. Do what helps you release stress in your life and remember your not alone. Other people are in the same boat as you, and never feel afraid to ask for help!

Tonight,

Today has been a crazy long day! With my kiddo being sick the past week I have regained my appreciation for sleep. Running on fumes today at work it feels great to lay in my bed with peace and quit. I normally hate the house being quit but after today like today it is peaceful.

I got out of work a little later than I normally do so by the time we got home my daughter was passed out in the car, SCORE! Now if you are a parent you know how HARD it is to transfer a child without waking them up. They look like sweat, precious angels but in reality its like carrying a bomb. No Joke! Just one wrong move, light in the eyes, laying them down incorrectly and BAM they are awake. My child wont just be awake for 10-15 minutes, no shes awake for hours after a bad transfer, however; the odds were in my favor tonight and she stayed asleep.

I was able to pick up the house a tad from this morning. I had 15 min to get ready, everything gathered and out the door this morning. Of course with me sleeping in more than I should I run around the house like a chicken with its head cut off trying to hurry and gather everything I needed along with what my child needed for the day.

I’m just going to be real with y’all. I’m not a morning person, I set 4 alarms and end up getting up on the 4th alarm. I really like my sleep and waking up super early to get all doneĀ up is not my thing. Don’t get me wrong I love doing my make up and hair, however; I do not get enough sleep to wake up an extra hour early to do all that stuff. A good tip and what I do instead is shower the night before, dry your hair and do it. I love to curl my hair but, that takes a good hour to do. At night I will curl my hair put it in the highest pony or bun (Go with the curl do not fight the curl) sleep on it, wake up shake it out put on my 2 min face make up and im ready to go. (After I brush my teeth and use my mouth wash of course)

Doing my hair the night before is a life saver. But when I don’t do that a good o pony or bun works just fine! Just remember no matter what have confidence and do what makes you happy. If that is waking up 2 hours early or sleeping in. You do You that is the only thing that matters.
