Under Pressure


Chippin’ around – kick my brains around the floor. These are the days it never rains but it pours … It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about. Watching some good friends screaming ‘Let me out’ …

Under Pressure, Queen

STRESS – PRESSURE – ANXIETY … whatever you call IT …

Everyone handles it in their own way. For me, stress comes out in a variety of ways. First and foremost, I’m a stress eater. Whereas, there are those people who can’t eat anything when they are stressed – like my skinny husband – I’ve struggled with stress eating my entire work life. Secondly, I release stress in emotional ways where others keep it locked inside. I can cry at the drop of a hat (I think this is a hereditary trait), and I work hard to control this emotional tendency. Thirdly, I always remember the Lord’s Prayer when I’m really and truly under pressure:


Oh, and I forgot one more thing – shopping. Shopping makes everything better!

How do you handle stress?
