Unique friendships have continued to provide me with much needed connection, people that I have a bond with, whom I may not see for many months, sometimes even years, but when I do it is as if I never was away from them. I often say when I am teaching the weekly class, that we take each other home with us when we leave and this for me, is the truth.
One thing I have learned is that none of this stress supports us as humans. Yes, we have to pay our bills, be accountable and responsible, but worrying makes no difference or sense at all.
The first step toward letting go of stress is to know that you are carrying it. Pay attention to how you feel and learn to read the signals that you are allowing work to wind you up or wear you down.
