As I mentioned many times before, I work in Residence Life and Housing at a University. There are two extremely busy times in the year- opening in August and closing in May. This week I will be working a lot of 12 or 14 hour days, so I have no idea how I am going to get my workouts in, however I plan on trying because running is such a huge stress relief.
Note to self. Take time out to run, eat, and shower.
Yup…that seems about right.
I am also on duty all weekend, meaning that anytime my phone rings I need to answer it and respond to calls. Super fun.
So after coming in early to help with room inspections (we have 1723 spaces in our building BTW) I decided to run before I lost the motivation to do so. It was a good choice and I ran 2 miles straight without stopping. I haven’t done that in over 3 years!
I started to get stressed out in the afternoon after some shenanigans that took 3 hours to resolve. Ugh. At least it made me feel like my life is kind of together.
TIL that no matter how stressed out, confident, or annoyed I might be, it is not becoming to act like a first rate grade-A asshole. I am not going to name names, but it made me think a lot about the way I act. There are times, especially when I am on duty that I can be nicer. I am trying to work on that.
Note to self. Be nicer and don’t act like an uber bitch…even if you are hangry.
Since my stress kept elevating, I decided to run again this afternoon. It helped. A lot. I don’t do a lot of 2-a-day workouts, but today I felt like I needed it. My stress is gone, and my head is clear. I can’t control what other people do or say, but I can manage my own stress and control my own reactions and emotions…sometimes easier said than done.
Now I need to go eat something…possibly something covered in chocolate.
Peace and Love,
