Go Red #4!

Creative Self

Take a deep breath… Now take another… I try to do this a lot now, as I have a very detail oriented personality. Not OCD, but I can tell that I get on my husband’s nerves sometimes. He wants me to make sure I’m not doing things that he can do, so that I’m able to do what only I can do. Sounds dreamy, right? The problem creeps in when his doing something is not on my timetable. It’s difficult for me to work when the yard, or snowy sidewalk or dishes need to get taken care of. I’m working on that not nagging at me, but it’s difficult. I’m a taskmaster, and like to get things done and out of the way so they’re out of my brain. You see how this could, or rather, how I let it, escalate. This mindset tends to develop into stress. Stress is so bad for the heart, and the body as a whole. The whole fight or flight thing, if you’re constantly in that mode, it’s really unhealthy! So, I am taking deep breaths. It’s better for my heart, and my mind! I counted four stressors this morning, all before 7:30! I just took a deep breath…
