Tomorrow morning my students take their SOL test. Right now I am thinking good thoughts of them all being tucked carefully into their beds, after eating a wonderfully nutritious meal, so that they will be ready to knock the socks of this test!
We've worked hard all year and they've reviewed and targeted areas in which they struggled, but it all just comes down to one day, a few hours, and a computer screen.
Today I went to a family doctor for some horrible neck pains I have been having and basically got a psychiatrist session on the stresses in my life. It was a really good visit and I've been asked to come back on Friday for some Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM). And have been told figure out some ways to handle my stress. Some options were offered and I plan to use them but...
(BUT is the key word here. I am finding that I always have a "but." No BUTS!)
...I just need to get through tomorrow and the next 16 days! This said, I need to get through these days by taking care of myself too.
This is easier said than done, but I will try.
How do you handle stress?
