Rolling around on the web today I found this:
Perfect for me. I get stressed really easily. Lately, I tend to sit on the couch feeding Dakota, looking around the room, and thinking about all the things that I need to get done, want to get done, and am procrastinating on. Getting my crap together to go back to work. Cleaning the floor. Cleaning the kitchen. Opening mail. Making a new mobile for Dakota. And on, and on, and on. And all I can do is sit there and drive myself crazy about it, because I have a newborn and a 16 month old, and they are taking pretty much all my time and energy at the moment.
This little list just reminds me of what I already know to work- Relax, and do one thing at a time. Good. Yesterday Dustin and I cleaned out some drawers and the hallway. Something little, that had been bothering me, that took only a little bit of time, but made me feel better. Like I had accomplished something.
Today I worked on "Get enough sleep"and took a nap with Dakota instead of doing anything else. Heavenly!
