Stress Can’t Stop me
Ever since I started working in a Minneapolis MN Law Firm, my life changed. I became grumpy and moody. I think it's because of the stress that the job can give. I handle clients and do a lot of administrative work. Sometimes I stay until 12 midnight in the office just to finish tasks for that day and I think it also happens to all other Minneapolis Law Firm employees. I know that it's unfair because I don't get paid for those overtime hours. I know that I need to quit too, my husband has been telling me that. However, my goal is to be promoted this year that’s why I can't quit yet. For me to be promoted, I need to show my boss that I have what it takes for that higher position.
I do a lot of stress-relieving activities whenever I am at the office so I can avoid getting burned out. During stressful meetings, I just try to stay connected to my breath. Sometimes, a meeting causes a lot of stress to its attendees especially when one does not get what he or she wants. I just stop listening and sip my coffee, wiggle my toes and massage my hands. Whenever I am on the phone, talking to an irate person, I inhale something that relaxes me like coffee or ginger tea. I try to stand up as well so I can burn off excess energy. I like stretching while I am in the office because it relaxes my tired and stressed muscles. Sometimes, you just have to find your own way to relieve yourself from stress or you will get eaten alive by it.
I am looking for my next big adventure. There are still many places I want to visit and even more to which I want to return. The camera is charged up and my backpack is packed; drop me a line if you know where I should go next.
