Whew child! It’s stressful out here.
Like everyone else, I’m hibernating, trying to keep myself busy, having more virtual happy hours than I know what to do with and patiently (but eagerly) awaiting a new normal. Truthfully, I am feeling a little bit stressed. So, I went digging, hunting, reading for ways out of my stress mode (which just ain’t pretty). I found lots of good tips for stress busting, but there is one in particular that really stood out.
Use stress as a learning moment.
Hear me out. This tactic was more than just “everything happens for a reason”, which I totally co-sign on, by the way. This was literally about, saying…”ok, what am I supposed to learn here?” and/or saying “ok, this sucks, I need to step away and go do something new, learn a new skill, read a new book, attend a new virtual conference.” Either way, the stress was an opportunity to gain knowledge.
So, what am I doing in this stressful time? I’m learning how to be a better cook. I cook when I’m trying to impress the BF, or hosting the holidays. Now, I’m hacking recipes, cooking more than I’ve cooked in my life and feeling like a really hot Betty Crocker.
