That is not the case this summer. This summer, I'm feeling a little bit right now like I did back in May. Like I need a big, long, restorative, 3 month hiatus from the universe. So, I've decided that I need to arm myself against the typical onslaught of drama, chaos, stress and hooliganism (my new word since I read it in a news article this morning) that is the first month of school.
Tonight I scoured the Barnes and Noble self-help section, looking for a little bit of love. I found the following:
I'm kitten-sittin next week and am going to use the time at my friend's place to take a little vacation on my last week of summer. The plan is to read through each of these (except the Book of Awakening, which I'll take a bit longer to chew on) and hopefully gain some tools to deal with the work stresses I'm already being faced with before I even walk through the door. Fingers crossed, peeps.
What do you do to keep your stress under control?
