SCRUBBIN' OUT THE STRESS
When I feel overwhelmed I sometimes partake in a cleaning
frenzy, which spawns from the realization I would rather do
anything other than think about the source of my stress.
I don't particularly recommend this method of relief, however,
because by the time you start to feel a little bit better,
you realize your room is in complete disarray, in that partially-organized-but-not-really
sort of way, therefore stressing you out even further because
you're left with an unfinished attempt at organizing. Whoa,
even thinking about this stresses me out.
The failure-free alternative, however, lies in the simple
television and tea break. Round up your roommates, fill up
some mugs and indulge in some "quality" television
like Nip/Tuck or the newly launched Skin for some comic relief.
Wait -maybe I lied, sometimes this can increase stress.
If you're feeling indecisive, having to choose between peppermint,
summer berry or regular ol' Tetley tea or even hot chocolate
can induce stress all on its own. Maybe there just isn't a
risk-free way to cure slightly spastic people like myself.
