I actually sobbed into my pillow about having school tomorrow.
This is not how I should feel.
I’m feeling panic and fear, even though I’ve got all my units and everything planned out. I think its to ‘back to the daily unexpected’ that’s getting to me….. I’m dying for some consistency these last seven weeks. My mental state cannot handle anymore curve-balls.
I find that I get stressed when I think about long periods of time. For me that could be anything from a week to several weeks. When we imagine having to get up and deal with stress for seven days or seven weeks or the rest of our lives, it feel so impossible. But what can you do tomorrow? Can you manage tomorrow? If not, what needs to be addressed/fixed to make tomorrow do-able? Use a journal (or blog) to get out your concerns and frustrations. Be specific in order to get them off your chest. You can also make a list of things you need to do or things you WILL do to make tomorrow more organized and manageable. It will also (hopefully) get those things off your mind so that you can sleep more easily and not stress all night.
And don’t forget to tell yourself that it’s all going to be okay.
Now if only I could follow my own advice. :p
