Holiday Stress Pick Me Up

We all know the holidays are stressful. We all know schools is stressful, especially nursing school. So, juggling the two together can be a bit overwhelming. Just like juggling work, family, and the holidays. No mater what the combination, the holidays add an additional stress on to our plate. If we let it. I know, so much easier said than done. I am completely guilty of thinking this as well. But, for someone like me who is obsessed with the holidays and everything having to do with the holidays, I don’t want to let anyone or any stress ruin that for me. The holidays are something I look forward to every year. Yes, they may be stressful, if that’s the mind set.

Unfortunately, society has created this chaos about the holidays. Many people, including myself have lost the truth behind the holidays. I’m realizing this at the beginning of the holidays and I plan on changing my perspective. The holidays are a time for believing and having faith. It’s about spending time with people that care about us that we love.

Let’s Make it to Break!

Alright, it’s finals time and holiday time. Talk about stress! Well, one thing at a time. I will be continuing to add onto this post as I get through finals and the holidays myself. In the mean time, I had a fellow student ask me about some of the pictures I sent her to remember HELLP for preeclampsia. So, I wanted to make this study tool is accessible to people that need it. I recently received a book I bought on Amazon and I think this is my new “study bible” if you know what I mean. It has everything I could think of to help me focus my studying.

Holiday time means holiday stress, am I right? NO! I am not right! Yes, the holiday’s CAN be stressful. however, they don’t HAVE to be. I’ll admit, there’s been times that I I’ve felt stressed out either about family drama, presents, traffic, or people’s attitudes. Then I have to do something to work through the stress so it doesn’t ruin my holiday spirit. I’ve been creating Mandala’s to put onto my blog to help other people who also need a little “alone” or “me time” (let’s be honest, we ALL need “alone” or “me time”) whether it’s the holidays or not.
