Stress, Stress, Stress!

Published by Twyla E. Brooks under on 7:43 PM
Ever feel stressed? I do! Although my personality is rather uptight, it's the fact that I let stress get to me is what my problem is.


Sometimes, (like now), I let stress overwhelm me. In reality, it isn't as big a deal as I make it out to be, but that's just me for ya. *rolls eyes* It's all the little things that pile up on my mental list that really dig deep into my brain system and make me think, "There's not enough time in the day to finish everything! Now I'm going to freeze up and distract myself so I don't stress so much! But, oh no! Now I'm procrastinating which stresses me out, and now I'll never get anything done! Ahhhh!!!" Then I sit there pulling my hair, snapping at my family, and feeling overall terrible. 


Stress is not only mentally, but physically bad for you! Here's a link to how bad stress can be for you: http://www.webmd.com/balance/stress-management/stress-management-effects-of-stress


Bad, bad, bad! Psalm 55:22 says, "Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall." That's something I'm still learning, obviously, and will continue to learn for the rest of my life, but hey, baby steps. That verse was really encouraging to me, and I hope it is for you as well. :)


Take a few minutes to pray to God and cast your burdens onto Him and let the Lord carry them for you. You shouldn't need to carry them yourself. Then, create a list off all the things you want to accomplish in your day and write them down in order of priority. As you work through each item on your list put a nice thick cross mark through it. You'll visually see your progress which motivates you to move onto the next thing with a better mood.


(My mom was the one who taught me that. Love her!) ^^


So don't be stressed, (like me), and enjoy your day!
