S is for Stress

I am feeling a bit stressed lately. Think I over-stretched myself this month. It started out fine but then I added another challenge on the 15th that requires daily writing. Add the stress of working more (one co-worker quit recently) along with figuring out this transfer process (possible T topic, hmmm) and it's all starting to be a bit much.

Sometimes when I'm stressed I find it easier to write, under the deadline in particular. However, other times when I have too much going on, then I have a harder time getting anything done.

Today is a day off from work and yet I have so much writing to do and stuff to figure out, it doesn't feel like a very restful day. I could use a nap.


What do you do when stressed?
Does stress affect your writing?

You are young and strong but if you feel you need to rest, then you definitely need to rest. Try to find some time just for you!

Catherine A. Winn - Thank you for the comment. I'm hoping once things get figured out and settled down, I will have some time to rest.
