Wouldn’t this “Fragile: Handle with Care” sign make a great t-shirt to wear on days when you’re feeling super-stressed?
It’d be so much easier if we could announce to the world very plainly: “Hey, I’m feeling fragile today, so be careful what you say to me. I just might break!”
But instead, we usually insist (with clenched teeth) that nothing’s wrong and we feel just fine!
A big stress trigger for most people is moving — even if you’re excited or happy about moving to your new place, there’s so much work involved and a lot of details to take care of.
Even if you aren’t physically moving to a new location this weekend, you are moving through your life, carrying all that baggage on your back that you haul from day to day — it’s the garbage from the past that you haven’t let go of, your worries about the future, and the things on your “To Do” list. That’s a lot to carry around.
Lighten up! Dump the past, stop worrying about the future, and whittle your “To Do” list to the 3 or 4 most important things you must take care of today. I tell you how to do this in my book “Forget Your Troubles: Enjoy Your Life Today.” Have you read your copy yet? Get it here — instant access.
