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:)
