Eeyore and the Rainy Day

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I’m sitting here….wondering why I let the little things get me down. Do you ever get yourself in a funk that you just can’t pull yourself out of? Well, I’m there. I call it my “Eeyore” days. The rain cloud follows me and I can’t escape it. I know there are useful tools out there and I know they work but sometimes, I’d rather climb in bed, cover my head, and just hide. Unfortunately, it’s not an option. So, what to do?


Yep. I’m running to the swimming pool. Okay, I’m not running. I hate running. I actually hate most things, exercise related. But swimming? I love to swim. I could swim for hours. It doesn’t resemble anything “workout” related and I can just shut down my mind and let the water rush by. After an hour, I feel refreshed. Even if it’s just a little every day, when you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which can lower stress levels; just what I need.

Well Balanced Meals

I’ll get a good healthy meal next. It’s about nutrients and about fuel. I am a big “juice” fan and when I’m feeling depleted, I’m the first to run to the wheat grass bar. As much as I’d like some ice cream of French fries, it doesn’t quite do the job. It sure tastes good though, doesn’t it! So, regardless of what we “want”, I think we all need… it’s about what we “need”.


Oh, and of course we “need” water. No coffee. No caffeine. Just plain ole’ water. And plenty of it. I think it’s a good way to flush those toxins on out. It hydrates, and cleanses, and there’s nothing that refreshes quite like it. Plus, it’s free! Drink up!


Most important, tonight…. I’m going to be sure to get enough sleep. I usually don’t have a problem with this but lately, I find myself not sleeping well. My mind is racing with thoughts of everything I need to do; people that I worry about and those that have hurt me. Things that I’ve done wrong, and things that I should have done differently. Life. It’s like this never-ending circus of chaos in my mind that doesn’t have an intermission and me, just balancing above it all on the tightrope. But it’s important to rest your mind so I’m trying. I’ll try tonight. It’s the only real way your body and mind can recuperate. It’s how you build your reserves back and who doesn’t need that?

And, tomorrow’s a brand new day. And Eeyore is sweet, and kind… but I’m tired of the rain cloud and want some rainbows. How about you? What do you do when the stress is bigger than you?
