Practicing Stress Free Living

Published on

Something has changed in how I live my life the last three or four years. I've gone from being an incredibly independent person able to handle damn near anything thrown at me to someone who struggles with the day to day.

Like I hinted in my last Weekly Review, I've been having a really tough time dealing with my stress lately. I've been teetering on Burnout lately, and doing everything I can to fight that. The worst part is that my work stress is only a part of the pile of stresses that I've been trying to manage lately, and that means that simply taking a week off from work and playing with personal projects in a hotel in Redding or Big Sur isn't going to make my situation much better.

I've been trying to dive in to some real ways to destress that aren't simply superfluous or self-harming things like drinking.
