I’m managing a particularly stressful project at work (which, might I add I wanted nothing to do with because I hate the subject matter, but then took after my boss kindly reminded me my review is coming up). I’ve had to work the last two weekends. I know that it is nothing compared to a lot of you, but I prefer to completely shut off my work-mind at exactly 6 pm on Friday and keep it off until 9 am Monday.
Last night I had another stressful event (good stressful, which of course I have to be vague about in typical-blogger fashion). Fortunately afterwards Neil and I had restaurant week reservations at my favorite restaurant in all of DC, Rasika.
A mango cosmo after a long, tough day tastes even better.
Some other stress relievers the last few days….
A very short bike ride on Sunday. I was walking Leela, and the rain had finally cleared so I decided to go for a short & quick ride in Rock Creek Park. It was nice to ride for just a little bit, instead of an epic bike ride that lasts hours.
A five minute afternoon break. Even if I can’t take a lunch break, I will still go outside for 5 minutes to soak up some sun and stop thinking about work.
A 7 mile run with the sunrise this morning. I’m getting to parts of Room where I don’t want to stop listening! It is scary, but completely enthralling.
Looking at pictures on the Washington Humane website for a few minutes. I’m not sure if we’ll ever be ready to adopt a second dog (at least not in our tiny house), but how can I be stressed after seeing a picture like this?
Does anyone else use puppy pictures to cheer themselves up? If so, visit Katie on wordless wednesdays for guaranteed cuteness overload.
