I accepted a new job in April and man oh man it is a lot. I did 2 months of training and then I started in the office on July 1. I get what everyone says about working in an office though. By 5 I’m not even seeing straight let alone can I work anymore. And of course since I’m new I stay late because I’m not good at getting everything done during the day (I don’t have a routine yet, I’m not slacking).
Most days after work I’m even too tired to go to the gym which kills me. I used to hear people say that they can’t get to the gym after work and I thought you’re just being lazy, go to the gym. But after working all day, going to the gym is the last thing I want to do sometimes. I do make myself go sometimes or I go on a walk during my lunch break…if I get one. Or I have an elliptical at home that I’ll get on for 20 minutes as a last resort.
But it’s a great job. Just a life adjustment.
Everything else is going well. My wedding is only 51 days away and thing are getting stressful. Why are there so many small details in a wedding. Every decision you make, there are 12 more decisions to make associated with it.
My brain is about to explode.
I’ve been working on eating really well to help with my mental clarity and stress. All this stress makes me want to go eat an ice cream or get a candy bar whenever I’m at the gas station or grocery story, but I know it’s not going to help me. The cleaner my diet the better I’m going to feel and the better I’m going to be with wedding planning and at work. Oh and I guess at regular life when there’s any time for that.
What do you do to help keep stress levels down?
