We all do it. You do, don’t you? Well, I have been stuck for months in procrastinating about writing my blog. The more time that went by, the less I felt like doing it. I would tell myself- ‘do it, you have do do another blog entry’ and then I would distract myself into some other activity and again, nothing accomplished. I do this with other things- often they relate to accounting, money or other areas I feel somewhat inadequate in. I avoid doing what I need to do so I dont have to face my discomfort. But, I like writing and I have loved doing my blog. It just became something that I kept “forgetting” to do. So, what does this have to do with stress? A lot. All of these incomplete, avoided and dreaded activities haunt us at some level. even on the ‘back-burner’ they nag and sap our energy. It feels so good to accomplish one of these things- for me there is a rush of energy and a feeling of freedom. Try it. Pick one thing you have been avoiding- even a small thing- and as Nike says, “JUST DO IT!” You will feel better. I know I do.
