Changes and Stressors

How many of you remember that TV test pattern?  Man, I'm old! And ya, you are too if you remember it! Just sayin'. : P

Anyway, this is me at the moment:

So this is my blog test pattern for myself. I need to read this and repeat to interrupt some of my stress.
  • Change is good. It could be a great opportunity.
  • Things could always be worse. 
  • Worry about what is within my control/sphere of influence. Whatever else is what it is.
  • It's only a job. And, I am very fortunate to have a job.
Instead I will focus on:
  • Sticking to my routine! Continue to exercise and make healthy choices. I feel healthy and strong from doing both which makes me feel good physically and mentally.
  • My husband and friends are supportive and can help me manage my stress IF I talk to them. Do not disengage.
That is all. Oh wait, I think it's: You will now be returned to your regular programming...

    Big hugs! I hope everything works out okay. Keeping a routine is the best thing for me too. Hmmm...I wonder what my test pattern should be.

    Thank you for this post. I needed it! I have a very stressful life and job. Stress is what caused me to fall off the bandwagon.

    I am back in the saddle and moving down again. I love how positive your blog is!

    I think we all could use a "reset" button once in awhile. Thanks for the reminder.
