Another problem I have is not being able to always manage my daily activities. I like to to different things and hang out with friends both old and new. But, when I commit to go somewhere or do an activity with someone I feel an added layer of stress to go along with the commitment.
After I have said yes (and then don't really want to go or do not have the time to go) I stress about telling the person I have changed my mind and I can't go.
So, now I give myself a day to think about what the function is and how will it benefit me ( by actually easing stress because it might be fun) or will the stress I am feeling is actually worth the commitment.
Since there is already so much going on in my life, I have found taking the time to consider any and all benefits before I commit I have much better control of my stress level.
What about you? How do you control the stress in your daily activities?
