Stress levels journal

I have not always been real good at sharing feelings and opening up, I know I probably need to do more of that to relieve some of my stress. I did not have a chance last night to post anything but am going to try to post daily on this. Yesterday we did not have a provider at work but I had plenty of work to do, some of it had piled up that I had not had a chance to get done, worked on some of that so that helped a little. Got home last night and my daughter, son-in-law and 2 of the grandchildren were in the pool with my husband so put on my suit and went and played in the pool for about an hour with the grandkids. Then we went to eat so I did not have to fix supper. Overall yesterday I rated my energy at a 3, because I have been having issues with being tired, had some energy but still not a lot. My overall stress I listed at a 3 due to work and I have lots at home I need to get done before the company comes for the holiday weekend, but was able to catch up on some things at work. Sleep was a 4, I did feel a more refreshed yesterday morning when I woke up than I do a lot of days. Self-esteem I rated at 3, I know I know how to do my job and do it well, but my appearance sometimes I think pulls it down, I am working though on a postive change there. I am making an effort and want to reduce my stress. This week on the stress group I want to make effort to understand my stessors and what I need to do to control my stess. I know that when I am stressed I overeat and I need to overcome that. That is the big reason I think I gained weight back. Here is the first stress blog.
