The most stressful time
Stressful times can drain you of your energy
I have lots to plan and a lot to do for my new business, during this time, I feel stressed with tightened jaws.
It has been a stressful time, especially when I have to get paper work done and to focus on important documents.
Time is required to write and publish my hubs, and to organize around the home and to plan set out the summer job spot.
I am excited and can't wait to get going with selling my products, such as the home-made lavender oil, and olive oil also beverages, and ice cream.
I feel like so much is left to me and when I try to work out the details everything holds together but the ends as yet are not tied.
The good weather approaching and with such lovely sunny days. I can't help but be outdoors for most of the day, which does make me feel most relaxed.
During the summer time, I work as a tour guide to show guests around the village. I entertain guests with a barbecue and a tour around the old castle.
I enjoy meeting and chatting to people that gives me great pleasure to learn of other cultures and people's different lifestyles.
Life is enjoyable if you make it and I am doing just that everyday.
The trip to the castle is a bit of a steep walk but so exciting.
I learned so much from my new life and from my best friend.
She taught me how to begin with my new lif in Croatia.
I had a stressful few hours today it has been one of those days, and I tried to calm down with a cup of coffee. I find that little things can disappointment me.
Instead of being serious about everything, I focus on writing online.
I walk and get rid of those stressful moments.
My garden is looking very attractive and I still need to plant new seeds this year.
I don't want to rush into planting as yet the weather could get much cooler over the next few days, and would delay new plants from normal growth.
I did that a year ago and not many plants survived the untimely cold weather.
· What mostly got to me over the past weeks is the way people work around here.
Their approach to actually getting work started or finished is often delayed.
I need an awning to be fixed onto my new already built stall, and have asked a guy to measure up and have the job all complete soon.
Since he offered to sign-write our company name for one fair fee, it all sounded worthwhile and I agreed.
However, for the last fifteen days I have been calling him and he has not turned up. Each time I called him he said, ''I will come to you tomorrow afternoon if not then the day after.''
It is the same conversation and that he has another job elsewhere.
He is rude and disrespectful and doesn't care of the fact that someone had believed him and still has to wait on him.
I feel let down by him the constant calling and no interest in him keeping up to his word.
It is a problem with many laborers and is the same old story.
They would come to you but don't know when, or they will do the job and don't know how much it will cost and don't return.
· The promises are just so painful to hear.
A while back my friend called on an electrician she had some electrical issue in the basement. After numerous calls the guy still did not turn up as he promised.
The job was given to another electrician.
Often we do acquire someone to do the jobs we don't know how to and the end result is pathetic.
We try to do what know and can and to get an electrician or a plumber is difficult to get around to.
They don't like working much the least amount of work feels the easiest it is for most handy-men around here and that gives them the bad reputation which does not mean much to them.
It can be most stressful if you are waiting on a handyman and when he promises it is even worse.
The laid back life proves their lifestyles and different kind of life which is why I sometimes find it difficult to mingle with many people.
I sometimes feel tired and fed up of waiting, but have no choice but to wait, it is like my hands are tied and can't get on with it.
There is nothing that I can do to make it right only the handy-man can fix it.
· What makes me feel most stressful?
I have learned that as a parent stress builds up from daily activities and plans.
Going shopping does make me feel stressed while for others shopping makes them feel relaxed or less stressful.
Sometimes I feel like my nerves are exploding when in a simple conversation in trying to explain certain issues.
I want it all to work out and I want to get on with my life my determination explain everything about my forceful ways.
When thinking of too many pans and this includes excitement I feel my jaws tightening and clicking.
I massage my jaws to get rid of that tenseness.
I did not feel parenting as stressful with only child it felt so easy and less stressful recently, I felt everything is building up and I need to be alone to get my mind together.
Stressful moments happen to most of you and the way to handle such moments.
Take in the fresh air and laugh about something or listen to some of your favorite music. Also, take things lightly.
Avoid that too much of thinking moments to feel less stressed.
· Can Stress make me feel tired, sleepy or hungry?
I felt hungry and tired after a long day of shopping connected to my stressful time.
My body went through a different stage.
My adrenalin pumped enough to cause my blood pressure and heart rate to rise, and the tensed feeling in my muscles made me feel that tiredness in my shoulders and upper back.
I felt sleepy my energy felt drained from me.
I did not have a headache or have any indigestion; usually headaches and indigestion are accompanied by such tenseness.
There is that adaptive phase that you experience like the symptoms have disappeared but what was actually happening to my body that was a surprise.
My body was trying to compensate the stressors by driving its own resources to wherever it feels they needed to go.
The last stage of my stressful phase is the exhaustion stage. The symptoms come back at least most of the symptoms but this does not always happen to individuals.
When you are dog tired your body feels trapped when you feel in this way make a note of what caused you to get into that state of mind.
I know what caused my stressful day. The travel to Dubrovnik and back home made me feel tired and flat out.
I have become well- adjusted to my peaceful surroundings the outing took a toll on me.
I enjoyed the day though by the end of the travel I had taken the full load on my shoulders. The planning and organization of my summer work had got to me mentally.
It was a change for the day.
· Going to bed earlier and resting is a good recommendation for feeling less stressed and more relaxed?
I felt anxious about the day and was thinking too much of how I should go about my plans. I used my energy by just being anxious and made myself feel quite stressed.
· What works best for me?
A focus on a warm bath, with scented oils it can be most relaxing and an hour daily of this practice can relax your muscles to feel good again.
I know how to treat myself to something special to spend the day with fun moments and to be myself in a very short time.
I think of the good reasons of why I am going to work this summer and every other summer that is what holds me together and happy.
My trip back home and for my future travels.
When you have a goal to work toward nothing can hold you back from that goal if you put your mind to it.
Be calm and relaxed
