The stress means I need to chill out so I do. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply That’s the healthiest approach 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I sing–to myself–Summertime Rolls by Jane’s Addiction.

I do the singing in the car thing a lot! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sometimes just needs must. Besides do you ever look at those in traffic around you? They don’t smile. Singing gives you a rush of dopamine, I’d rather be singing, destressing and be happy at the end of it with no voice than sit grumpy in my car lol LikeLiked by 1 person I try not to think about those in traffic because I wouldn’t be singing :)))) LikeLike Work stresses me out to the point where I want to curl up in a ball and pretend it doesn’t exist. LOL Not really, but my job is stressful. I stay motivated to walk out the door by telling myself that the place would fall apart if I didn’t go.

Plus the fact that I’m in a place where the availability of well-paying jobs in this area that utilize my skill set are few and far between, and I can’t afford to leave without having another job lined up. I’m working on that. The resumes are submitted. Now, I just need to get an interview or two followed by the job offer. LikeLiked by 1 person Stress is a motivator for me.

I find I am motivated to push on when I accomplish a task, even a small one. So if I am worrying that I haven’t yet updated a spreadsheet (that takes me just a few minutes), I just do it then cross it off the list.
