My SECRETS of dealing with STRESS (at work or home)

My life now is a bit hectic, and it is easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed. We have two children that are both under age of three. For those who don’t have little monsters, mornings are the most challenging. Not only do I need to get them washed and dressed. They also want food! And not just breakfast! I need to pack a lunch for the older one and make sure that little one has a veggie & fruit puree. While running out, I need to remember to pack my boy into the car, then check whether we got his jacket, shoes, lunch, water bottle, and anything else necessary for that day. Thankfully, I have the nanny who takes care of the little girl as I rush out of the garage. The drive to the daycare is the most peaceful time. My kid enjoys watching cars and rarely speaks to me. This is the time when I think about the day and how to spend my precious seven hours to its full potential.

After dropping him off, I have another 20 mins of peace. Too quickly I get to work where madness lives. I work in a litigation law firm, and things are never slow. We have fire drills, urgent projects, client meetings, and emergency filings. Trust me, it is never dull, and I love it. But this love comes at a price. I get so many things on my plate at work that sometimes I just want to curl into a ball and cry. And that I sometimes actually do.

  1. Crying is my number one coping mechanism. It is quick, cheap, and provides excellent relief. I don’t cry all the time (at least I want to believe that). Sometimes I just feel that tears are coming; and if the situation allows, I let myself to have a moment.

One of the above never fails to lift my spirits and help me stay focused and chill. Whether I am working on a client’s project or convincing my child that he already has this toy, I never lose my cool.
