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.
