    (I should be asleep, but I can’t quite get rolled over)

    1. I’m really enjoying writing software again. It’s a strain and a challenge, it’s who I used to be, and I’m damn good at it, in my way. I am going to have the luxury of actually writing a lot of code this year, and we’ll see where that takes us.
    2. I am unequivocally getting older. I don’t like it. That’s also going to mean some changes. Nearly everything in my life revolves around extreme stress management, and cutting the fundamental stress is where I’m going to get the slack to take better care of myself with.

    Message ends.

    flattr this!

      I hear what you are saying about stress, but are you looking at this the wrong way round? Taking better care of yourself will help to cut the stress and make you more able to cope physically and mentally with whatever potentially stressful situations come your way. Stress is a state of mind, a reaction to what is going on around us. There will always be ‘stressful’ events happening around us, it is working out how to let it wash over you and not feel stressed about them.

      I have recently found out about using 15 minutes a day. It’s such a short length of time but there is so much that can be accomplished in 15 minutes. Can you spare 15 minutes a day to just take care of you?
