Relax and Take a Breath

How often do you get sooooo caught up in stuff that we get anxious/worried/frustrated??? I know that was me earlier today! I have two papers due, several discussion boards, powerpoints etc. etc. Yes we are down to the last two weeks of school and needless to say I am STRESSING!! But then you know I had to stop and take a deep breath!

Inevitably the next few weeks will go by, my worrying or not!!! I have on control over the passing of time! So what I need to do is set a plan, set some goals for each day, and REST!!!! By doing that I will save myself major stress and hopefully not cause myself any additional pain!! 🙂 That’s my current goal for tonight! If you have any advice please share!

I know my RA and Fibro flares soooo bad when I’m stressed and when that happens I am afraid my thinking cap will not work very well! Sooo off to rest some, I have work and more studying tomorrow. My current goal it to focus about 4 hours on my philosophy paper tomorrow! My ultimate goal is to have the complete 12 pages done by this weekend so I can work on the edits over the weekend. It is due by the 1st of August! So yes down to the wire!  My goal for my 29 page paper that is for my other class is to finish the final edits tomorrow. Proof it for its final reference check and then do final edits no later than Tuesday. I want it done! I also have to practice my presentation, my goal is to start doing that tomorrow, once a night for the next week. That way I will be comfortable with the information and clear on what needs communicated, gosh I only have 10 minutes!

The one thing I have learned is you are definitely limited by our invisible diseases but you do not have to stop living life. You just have to adjust! I was able to be in a wedding, hike around all day in heels but today I definitely have to rest a lot more than usual! I can get my homework done….I just do not have much extra time. But that is ok…I take one day at a time! Remembering that relaxing and resting have to make my priorities list 🙂
