What is the biggest source of stress in your life and how do you deal with it?
right now it is a class I am taking that I find kind of difficult. I find I don't deal with it well because I don't enjoy the subject and I don't plan on using it in the future, but I just do the best I can and tell myself it's only this one class and even if I get a less than stellar grade my other ones have been high enough this won't effect my GPA that much.
When I tell myself "all I have to do is pass this one" instead of pressuring myself to try to get an A in something I dislike and struggle with it seems to take the pressure off and ironically I do better.
Sometimes I think it's just all in the mindset and how we approach a problem.
First, If I may, thanks Christin S for the gluten free stuff. I will be sharing with a friend at work. (OK, I don't understand directions well or at least can't make a hand drawn picture for them
Now, the biggest source of stress in my life is with my nemesis 'Time.' However, recently we have become friends. hmmmmm, so that means my new biggest source of stress is diabetes dancing with absent mindedness. Or, being med compliant. Diet seems to be OK today, yet I still have to take those little pills or else.
How do I deal with it. My last DR visit was Thur. Discussion, lecture, discussion - blood drawn, phone call, bad results, new another thing - Vitamin D seems to be off, will pick up that script this morning, eat breakfast, yumm-yumm, turn on TV, sit back in chair, steno pad on table, begin brain storming for how to deal with it, make a plan, take a nap - the end. (until I awaken

Good question. I sometimes think, on my part, stress is self-induced.
I give every day to God, before I get out of bed, which helps alot.
At this point in my life, because I always have a lot to do, I stress out over what should I do first, and what is most important.
Because the clock is ticking for all of us, I'm leaning toward my writing passion the most.
However, while I'm doing it, I'm thinking, "I should be folding the laundry, making those appointments, vacuuming," etc.
That being said I have to admit, I feel the best when I get into bed at night if I HAVE worked on my writing. After all, the housework can wait, while I create. That is kind of my mantra right now.
I'm learning routine duties DO get done eventually, but writing is easy to put off until another time...but I find another time does not come.
I would say to any hubber, we all share the writing bug, and, in my opinion, that should come first. HubPages has kept my muse active, and has helped me with Writer's Block.
Writing is also a great distraction from anything we may be stressing about.
Well said, Sparklea. Routine duties do get done - and they certainly aren't (or shouldn't) be used as an excuse to put off other work that's both more difficult and more rewarding. Going to bed feeling like you've had a productive day is one of the best feelings.
Tsmog, have you seen the "ish" watch? I think it's right up your alley. And yes, I've watched my cousin learn to manage diabetes and he's amazing about it - I don't know how I'd cope with having to maintain such a constant balance.
The biggest source of stress in my life now and for the past two years has been my job. I work in services for people who have disabilities and very high support needs. I was attempting to manage this stress by doing Yoga a couple of times a week, eating a healthy diet low in sugar and caffeine and getting out walking most evenings, however, as the stress was ongoing it felt like with all I was doing I was only managing to keep myself hanging on by my fingernails from becoming consumed by the issues at work. I finally had a mini breakdown at work last September and have been certified off sick by my doctor since then. I was diagnosed with clinical depression and while I have never been an advocate of anti depressant medication, on the advice of my doctor, I have been taking them for a couple of months. I needed that extra bit of support to get me back to where I would have the strength to help myself. Happily now I am well on my way to recovery and am again doing all of the things I enjoy and that make me happy. I have not yet returned to work. I have always had a desire to try my hand at writing and it is through trying to find something worthwhile with my time while I am off work that I came across hub pages. I only joined yesterday and I am already hooked and have added it to my list of daily things I need to do to maintain my mental health at optimum levels. I am also facing the work issues head on and am in discussions with my managers about how my difficulties can best be resolved.
I get stressed when there's conflicts with people I love. I try to be find a quiet space and reflect on how I've contributed to the conflict. I like to pray about it. Sometimes, I go for a run to blow off some steam.

What is your biggest weakness and greatest strength as a writer?My biggest weakness is spelling and word transferring - I do have to be careful! For example with word transferring, if I'm typing too fast I often type 'there' instead of 'their' and so on. My biggest strength I guess is that I love...
