Do I really have to Adult today?

I am already sick to death of all things political.

The thought of a Donald Trump Presidency scares me down to my very core.

I live in a "battle ground" state.  That means that in a few months we won't be able to watch TV without being bombarded with commercials.

And now we've got Congress acting like children again.  They won't even entertain the thought of a Supreme Court nominee.  Come on people, do your job!!

I'm at a point where my anxiety won't let me even think about the election and the ramifications. I just can't.... *shudder*

This weekend ushers in a few weeks of non-stop activities and appointments.  Parties.  Amusement parks.  Movies.  Appointments.  I know that by April I'm going to be all:
(And Commencement season is just around the corner too. ...)

I carry all of my stress around my neck and face.  I clench my jaw.  I hunch my shoulders.  It's not pretty!

So what's to do?
1.) I'm avoiding TV.  Hulu, here I come.  

2.) I need to heed my own limits and say no when I have to.  On days where I've just had enough, I hide in the bedroom and watch Disney movies.  (There's not much that Tangled, The Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch can't fix)

3.) I need to take care of myself.  I'm working out regularly.  (Mostly... this week I've been lazy)  I also need to make sure that I schedule appointments.  I also need to get myself back to the Chiropractor.  And maybe schedule a massage...

What do you do to de-stress and deal with Adulting?

(And because I have to:  my favorite part of the movie:)
