I seem to be constantly thinking about work and it’s getting quite hectic at work as we’ve won new business. I’m likely not allowed to talk any further than this about work, but I’m certainly feeling the heat.
I was reading this BBC article before about stress and it has a useful stress testing tool on there. One of the first questions I answered was, “How often do you find yourself being irritable with friends and family?!” and I realised that quite often I’m irritated by what my sister does or when speaking to my parents. It’s certainly something I need to work on. I’m thinking of taking next week off and perhaps booking a short holiday somewhere just by myself to somewhere nice. Anyways, here’s how I scored on that stress tester: Right now, I just have this really bad headache. For the entirety of this week I’ve started work at 8:30AM and finished at around 8:00PM. I suppose I feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that I’m doing. Whilst this is occurring I’m finding that I’m not doing as much work as before and my head just seems to be all over the place. The only good thing about this week is the fact that I’m proud of myself for going through with the presentation I had to give to the new graduates who had just joined the company I work for. It was in front of 30 people and that’s actually the biggest audience that I’ve presented in front of. I’m really proud of myself for doing that as I didn’t think I had that in me to be as confident as I was. It’s time to sleep.
