There were 17 extra rooms.
I had a stress dream recently that I was working on cleaning my house, but every time I went through a doorway there was a room I’d never seen before, that needed SO much cleaning. The more I went through the house, the more I realized there were so many rooms I’d never get it all done!
It might seem mundane, but clearly I was so stressed about staying on top of things I had a stress dream about something I regularly try to accomplish – keeping my house clean!
Sometimes we’re more stressed than we realize. We have a to-do list and we’re on top of things and we feel pressure, sure, but we think we’re managing it well, or well enough.
May is National Mental Health Month. So whatever’s going on in your life right now, rather than “handling it,” consider taking a break!
Think about what you would do if you had an entire free Saturday. What do you enjoy that puts no pressure at all on you? A pedicure? A long run? Sleeping as long or as much as you want? How about reading a new book or binge watching your favorite show? Whatever it is, remember that you don’t have to handle it all the time. You can take a break, admit that it’s OK to not be “on” indefinitely.
As part of your mental health, make sure your physical health is taken care of to take any weight off your mind or get rid of annoyances. You can come in anytime to get your annual checkup taken care of!

P.S. It’s good to get your annual visit scheduled before you start traveling more in the summer.
