The mid-night editor is working over time. I can hear you now! I don’t have time to pamper myself! Those words, I don’t have time are your first clue that the stress level is starting to build. When you hear those words come out of your mouth or scroll pass that mental TV screen in your brain; I want you to stop whatever you are doing and realize that those words are a form of perfectionism. Set a timer for 2 minutes and do something for yourself.
There you go again with that perfectionism! “What can I do in two minutes to pamper myself! That isn’t enough time to do anything!” OH YES IT IS!
I am going to give you a little list to get you feeling special!
1. File your fingernails
2. Drink a glass of water
3. Eat a healthy snack
4. Freshen your make up and smile at yourself in the mirror
5. Make a cup of tea or my favorite Cafe Mocha
6. Pick up a magazine and read or look at the pictures
7. Listen to your favorite CD
8. Close your eyes and breathe slowly and deep
9. Open up your personal journal and write
10. Make a list of things you are thankful for
11. Pet your cat or dog
It is the act of stopping the negative perfectionist thinking that helps to defuse the stress! The icing on the cake is the pampering action that takes care of you! This simple little action is going to help relieve your stress. Less stress means you are happier!
