I have been quite stressed lately…and I think it’s because I’ve been working too hard and I’ve been dealing with…issues. I’ve had a reflective look back at my life and during the most stressful situations, I’ve noticed that I read a lot of books, fiction mostly. And during the past 12 months, I’ve been reading up a storm! My fiction reading is directly proportional to my stress levels (15 books in 6 months is a lot – more than a book every 2 weeks!). I think I’m this close to a burnout. I’ve also been reading loads about stress coping strategies and burnouts and how to spot them. It’s not helping though because I know intrinsically, something’s got to change.
What I really need is a change of place, a change of pace, and…a change. But tonight I’m going to go to bed and just rest!
