If you are having symptoms of overstress such as aches, fatigue, and pains, anxiety sleeping problems, lack of enjoyment of life, depression. It is time to give your body a chance to heal itself. Every morning make a list of what you want done, then cut off the bottom half of the list.
Lighten up your loads. Let someone else do the holiday dinner for the family or send a representative to the birthday bash. Only go out once this week. Say no a lot often to request from others of your time. You really do not have to be nice to your detriment.
Postpone the redecoration of your house. Remember, change is stress. So relax, postpone any big changes or moves for a while.
Postpone redecorating your apartment or home.
Postpone moving to a new house or apartment. Making a change in your living environment even if it is one you are excited about, is a major stress.
