I have been very stressed out lately. It is rather sad because I just went back to school two weeks ago and I am about to throw myself off a bridge. Not really but I am just saying. If no one knows, I am a graduate student at Monmouth University. I live an hour and a half away from the school and I commute two days a week. I am studying English with a concentration in literature. I wish to teach at the college level someday but we shall see. I am currently working on my thesis. I am only on the thesis development stage and I already have a headache. What does this have to do with anything about this blog?
Stress creates negative thoughts..negative thoughts creates old habits..old habits creates lazy Jackie. I have not been working out like I have been these last two weeks and my eating habits are out of control. I am highly upset because I thought working out was a way to get away from my stress. Well, I learned from this experience that I have not been this stressed out since my weight loss journey has started. It is amazing how the negative thoughts come back to my head. I thought I was pass them but they still linger in the back of your head. So strange.
What do you all do to get away from stress? What do you do? Some people tell me to do something artistic but the problem is I have no time. I should not even be writing on here because I have so much homework! I feel my job is a way to get away from stress sometimes even if my job can be stressful. I work with children who have special needs. Yesterday I pulled a child on a scooter with a hula hop and forgot all about my thesis for that half hour. Anyway, what do you all do to get away from stress? How do you get those negative thoughts out of your head? I am very interested in hearing your thoughts.
