So this time of year for me is super stressful. I have a to-do list longer than my arm and I feel overwhelmed. It is funny that the festive period which is meant to be happy and filled with joy can actually be overwhelming for some of us. You see I am an organiser I like to be ready super early and this gives me freedom if I need it. This year this mentality has been super useful with the postal strikes and delays in all deliveries. But even with all the forward prep and planning I get overwhelmed and stressed.
For me, stress can lead to worrying and overthinking. Which is not a good place to be. It is super easy to just let the panic and worry set in and just ride the wave of pain. But I am here to tell you one of the ways I cope with stress. The not-so-conventional way to deal with stress. You see everyone is different and destressing methods are personal. But by me sharing one of my ways might just help you find your own way to lessen the stress in your life.
