Good Morning! How are you? I woke up bright and early ready to get things done. I picked up the house a bit, went for a three mile walk, walked the dogs, and took a shower and then MacGyver woke up all stressed out. Which stressed me out.
Apparently he couldn’t sleep because he was worried about all the money we’re spending on the new vacation house when we haven’t sold the first one yet and when he told me this I suddenly caught the stress bug too.
And then I wanted to go for a run or meditate or do something because stress is the worst. Running however, is still not happening. I tried this morning for the first mile but it was still painful in my right hip and also my lower back. I’m wondering if maybe I’m more broken than my doctor originally thought. I might have to make another appointment if things don’t get better soon.
In the meantime, I’m spending as much time as I can on my new bike.
On Saturday MacGyver asked me if I wanted to go for a ride late in the day. I said yes of course but I asked him to check the weather first. He said it was as clear as a bell. So off we went.
“Let’s go for a ride”, he said. “It’ll be fun”, he said. We sat under the bank building for a half an hour until it was just a sprinkle and then we headed home. It was still lightning but thankfully we made it home in one piece.
The next time we go for a ride, I’ll be checking the weather myself!
What is the one thing you stress out over the most?
How do you handle stress?
