Within the first two weeks of January, I was asked numerous times by numerous people how I can appear so calm through a storm. What do I do to destress? What are some practical ways to destress yourself? They wanted to know how I can be so calm with so much to do in so little time. One of my coworkers says it’s just my personality, she says that I have a calming effect. I’m just naturally destressed, maybe.
Although when I think about it, I haven’t always been able to find practical ways to destress during crazy times. There were times in my life when I felt overwhelmed, desperate, and anxious. I’ve done things over the years and have developed “coping mechanisms” that allow me to keep calm and carry on.
