Gaining a fresh perspective on everyday challenges

Gaining a fresh perspective on everyday challenges

Pages: 4 - 5

Stressors in life often seem to have a habit of coming all in one go. Before the summer holidays I felt tired out emotionally and physically and that I was being bombarded with a constant stream of issues at home and at work to problem solve and manage. No sooner was one issue sorted and another two swept in to take its place. I like to be busy and enjoy a challenge, but I felt over stimulated and exhausted. At the same time a rather negative voice had set up shop in my head, I was not making enough time to look after myself and was looking with envy at my university friend posting pictures of her sunny lunch dates now she has taken early retirement.
