Oops. Stress makes a come back.
I was doing so well. I had a routine at work, strict rules about bed time and it was working. All this meant I was keeping a handle on my stress.
But Darn, the last three weeks I had fallen into bad habits and the stress monster came back. Feel a bit disappointed about getting stress again. Here are a list of my sins:
- I forgot to take proper lunch breaks
- No mid-week exercise in two weeks
- Late night study session
- No break after my exam. I socialised too hard
- Then this week, no social life. Bad me.
And I’ve need to take steps to bring my life back in balance. Unfortunately this has meant less GMAT study and business school apps. Bringing my life in balance has included a night out with friends to the dogs, betting on move over Obama, a lovely greyhound. Then an early night, a game of hockey and then a night out with another set of friends to see watching the Dame Edna tour. Then a lazy Sunday which has included reading a book, catching up on TV, a Skype chat and lots of tea. Hopefully this means I will be firing on all systems for Monday.
So what does this mean for rest of December?
No excuses I must exercise once during the week. I must take one night off during the week to socialise. I might also need to start ignoring GMAT-pill’s study plan. A bit too intense.
