Would have put 1 but I write every day😉 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I really relate to your writing idea! Even though it’s a constructive stress to write everyday, it’s still stressful 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 5 ~ because of pain making all the normal things so much harder 😢 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That sounds tough, but I’m glad that pain doesn’t take the stress up to 10. How do you deal with that pain? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply For my head, caffeine helps. For my back, stretches and a hot shower. I try to stay upbeat. It could be worse! LikeLiked by 1 person 1 – for the little stresses that kick me from time to time LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I guess that little stresses cannot be avoided, but still… congratulations! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 2-3 pretty chill, the spikes are normally from my own worrying LikeLiked by 3 people Reply So basically your thoughts create the stress when it’s not there? LikeLike Reply It’s close to a 10. For some reason I didn’t inherit or develop the mechanism for coping with stress, so all things related to health, life, kids, financial, dog, social, food, clutter, and sex cause me stress.

I’m trying to look at this new development positively because I was planning to quit at some point anyway. However, I would have liked it better if the departure had been on my terms. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Maybe the departure hasn’t been on your terms, but the steps you’re going to make from now on is on yours 🙂 LikeLike Reply 10 since i stopped “wordpressing” for a long while. Remember me? yes or no ? LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yes, of course I do. I was wondering if you stopped because you didn’t like the content or there were some other factors involved.

Thank you for the smile! Great work 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Congratulations for being a Cloud Rider and thank you for your kind words! Regarding the questions you ask yourself every day, how helpful are they for you? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ‘Helpful’ only because I use them to ask a relative question: “Am I conscious of what I’m thinking/doing?” and that’s the fun part of having an ‘evolved, human’ brain. LikeLiked by 1 person 3 because I’m not generally stressed but my husband is and I absorb it. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is a bit tough (and maybe unfair!?). What stresses him?

Definitely a 8 going to 10, with some rare, amazing days (mostly weekends) in which I can enjoy a 2-3. And this is because of a full time job with its high peaks of stress, a night master in communication and digital master, a house to run, groceries to do, meals to cook for two people to try to stay healthy, chores to organise, errands to run, a couple of gym sessions to try to fit in + maintaining a social life, taking care of the relationship, feeding my blog, trying to develop daily! Oh my I stressed only to write all of this 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wow! I got stressed only by reading all of these :)) ! You do a lot!
