Time Out Can Make Even The Worst Chores Seem Bearable

Taking time out for yourself can make a world of difference. Just a relax for five minutes. I was talking to someone this morning, and we were talking about stress and how sometimes people smoke to relieve the tension. I gave up smoking 8½ years ago, and she gave up smoking 20 years ago. I said that I think how this works, is not so much the nicotine, but what you do with the cigarette. You take a deep breath in, and then a long breath out with your first puff. In essence, you are expelling the tension. I am not saying that you should smoke to get rid of the tension, and I am not saying you should quit smoking (although it may not be good for you), but the act of the deep breathing is what counselors tell you to do when you need to expel tension or bad feelings.

Taking five minutes, ten if necessary can give you the smiles needed to tackle to jobs that need doing again.

Sorry if this is disjointed, I have re-installed Windows on my Laptop and not everything is working properly yet.

    • That’s always good. I hope to get to your yesterday’s post today, as well as today’s one. I re-installed Windows and it’s taking time getting everything back. I forgot how long it took to install Photoshop. I tried the trial of Photoshop CS6 but it is almost identical to the one I have so there is no point in paying out a couple of hundred pounds for something I already have.

  1. I used to smoke Camels unfiltered. But, I gave up smoking altogether several years ago; too expensive. That’s why I stick to drinking rum and vodka – not necessarily at the same time. It’s more cost effective.

    • Mine’s even more cost effective. Don’t drink. Although with that, I would if I could. After I started taking the tablets I am on, I had to stop drinking as it had a bad effect on me. Some people have said that of you give up smoking, drinking and sex, you live longer. It’s not true. It just seems like it haha
