Surviving Stress and Recovery
I thought balancing home life, with two young children, work and study would be a reasonable challenge, with just the usual amount of stress expected. For one, the very late study sessions once my two young boys are tucked in bed asleep. Although, yes its tiring, I found the sleep deprivation for me could often seem the easiest part to handle.
The more difficult aspect of stress to deal with can be the emotional side. For example the fear, doubt and guilt as parents we can naturally feel, can get on top of us. For me it hits when I’m rushing to a class at uni, after a quick breastfeed top up in the car to try and calm my youngest who screamed all the way there of course! Leaving me even more anxious rushing to class yelling out to my husband , ‘please text me if he gets too upset again, and ill come out as early as I can!’
This is the moment for me when it can become increasingly challenging to justify the reasons for the extra work Ive willingly taken on! Feelings of guilt and selfishness that can build up within us and impact on other parts of our daily lives, such as our mood, sleeping, diet and exercise patterns. Simply having no downtime at all.
Bringing us to the importance of rest and recovery. Whats that I hear many of us say? Especially at the end of a day that is never long enough, when we feel we are always in catch-up mode. Finally bedtime is upon us, and for me, my brain is left to catch up on the day and all the things I should have done. There goes a restful sleep.
So how do we manage it, and importantly how do we recover from it well enough that we can still retain enough energy to function the next day?
Taking control in chaos can seem daunting. How do we find the strength to take it all on with confidence?
