VLOG 6: Getting Out of a Constant State of Stress

I’m not totally sure I should share this video with you. I filmed it right after a recent breakdown. And not a justified breakdown about something life altering happening, but a medium sized breakdown after a series of small life annoyances – problems that aren’t even problems compared to what other people have to deal with.

That’s exactly the problem with stress – especially living in a stressed out state all the time. It takes everyday issues, big and small, and amplifies them. It makes even the smallest shit feel like something unbearable. Even if that feeling only lasts a few moments, it still sucks. It’s not fun to feel that way. The worst part is towards the end when you feel like you’ve had a melt down and wasted energy over something that should have been nothing. There’s a guilt that comes with it. Like the weight of what you just dealt with is silly in context to the type of problems you could have. And then we waste energy over the wasted energy…

No wonder we’re exhausted all the time.

Too many of us live like this where all we do is stress. Which only creates more stress and it inhibits our ability to live. So then we’re just existing.

I’m not sure how to get out of it, but I’m trying. And I do know I can be real about what this looks like so you know you’re not alone. <3

  • Thank you for sharing this. I know it’s scary and super vulnerable to share in those moments when you are still emotional and maybe not feeling your strongest.
    It is such a relief to know I am not the only one who deals with these kinds of frustrations and the emotional overwhelm that often comes with it.
    I hope this week is going better for you and thank you thank you THANK YOU for being brave enough to share this. I know I’m not the only one saying, ‘yeh…me too’
