Stress Management Goal for the Week

As part of the pain management class being done on the
How To Cope with Pain Blog
I've been assigned to do a quick planning exercise on one thing I'll do to help manage my stress. Originally, I had thought that asking for help would be my exercise, but Based on the level of pain I am still in (things are maybe getting better?), I feel that it is important to work on relaxation and making it a priority. So here's what I wrote.

1. The one idea I’ll do is to schedule in relaxation and meditation.
2. one thing I see getting in the way of this is my unpredictable schedule.
3. I’ll deal with this by planning the relaxation time based on when I see myself being able to do the relaxation the night before. For example, on Monday night, I am planning to do relaxation right after lunch, since I know I have time then.
4. specific goal is to schedule at least 15 minutes of relaxation each day, by planning my relaxation time the evening before.

I used to pray and meditate every day for an hour. I LOVED that time. . I'd get up at 5am to do it. ..just to do it. Your post today reminds me that I really NEED this in my life. . .as much as I need to eat or sleep. You are right about days being so very difficult and so unpredictable. I used to also keep a very tight time schedule - to ensure that I had time for me in my very hectic life. . . but CRPS really gets in the way of so much. I think I'd like giving those very important things back to myself. . .

I wish you the best of success in your meditation and relaxation time!!

I have not forgotten about getting my phone number to you - there's been a lot going on here. . I'm hoping to write an email to you tomorrow morning.

Sweet dreams, sweet Nicki!!

((((hugs you))))
