Stress Stinks | Bryan Smith
post image

This week was good on paper, but I‘m feeling stressed at work and so I‘m feeling unbalanced. Got in one run, one workout class, one hike and did well drinking water. Am in a reading slump and didn‘t finish any books - too focused on work and politics. Things should clear up at work by the 31st and I can‘t to get past this hump and slump. #bfcr4 @wanderinglynn @LauraBeth @Kaylamburson @MaleficentBookDragon

wanderinglynn Great photo! And great week, but I‘m sorry you‘re having a tough time. 💚 Maybe focus on some self-care goals this week. And sending you some positive energy and good vibes. 💜 3mo
Kaylamburson Gorgeous photo! I hope the 31st comes quickly for you and it's all less stressful soon. I love @wanderinglynn 's suggestion of self-care goals during the stressful time. 3mo
Chrissyreadit Today could be #selfcaresunday ❤️❤️Work and politics will still be there tomorrow. I‘m happy to start a movement with you too! 3mo

KimHM I‘m finding that reading about politics (witness my posts lately) actually decreases the stress caused by the politics of the moment. 3mo
LauraBeth This is such a great picture! Nice job! Hope it calms down soon. ❤️ 3mo
Blaire @wanderinglynn @Kaylamburson @Chrissyreadit @LauraBeth thank you all for your kind words! My trial is over and I‘m finally returning to the world. I‘m still tired but am reading again and taking a few days to chill. 3mo
Blaire @KimHM i like this idea, I get so caught up in the minutiae of the day to day political craziness/fear that it is unproductive. A bigger perspective might help. 3mo
Kaylamburson So glad you're back and feeling less stressed. Definitely take your "you" time. We all need more of that. 3mo

Litsy fam -- you all would definitely appreciate this book! I had a perfect morning of reading this in the tub with a fall candle and a bath bomb. Plus, look at those endpapers! 🤩 #readaboutreading #selfcaresunday #bookandbath

CoffeeCatsBooks Oh, I love pretty endpapers! 💕 3mo

#SelfimprovementSeptember #SelfcareSunday
1)Met a student for coffee who is now a freshman in Community College- we talked & laughed & talked. Just adore her.
2) read on the porch after my visit, then rested listening to the quiet.
3) walked to the river
4) read this poem
Porm by Wendell Berry

Suet624 Sounds delightful. 4mo

I‘m combining #selfimprovementsept and #bfrc3checkin today. Yesterday I was feeling some lingering effects of last weekend‘s hours of standing on a concrete floor, so I decided to do #SelfcareSunday a day early and get a pedicure before coming home and reading on the patio. I managed to walk ~45K steps this week and finished one book. It‘s gonna be another busy week, but I hope to finish strong. I‘m down for a Round 4 later in the month.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Nice color 💜 4mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 And I love the color! 💜 4mo
OriginalCyn620 I love pedicures! 😊 4mo

My #SelfCareSunday included being silly with the cats (poor #Zeke had a photo op) and putting up new images on my walls, thanks to my dad. My brother and sister in law gave me a layout with my cats for my birthday, and it now hangs in my living room. For the rest of the night, finish up laundry and read. #catsoflitsy #selfimprovementsept
