I don’t watch the news a lot, mainly because most of it is bad. This time of year it doesn’t matter where you go, most people seem to be in a bad mood, not in the holiday spirit. I guess I can’t them. Combine all of the bad news we see with every day stress, and then add in the extra stress that comes with a special times of the year, and it’s easy to see how someone could lose track of what’s good in their lives.
I’m not just being funny with today’s comic. I LOVE my pajama pants. I’m wearing them right now. If I don’t have an appointment or somewhere to be, I wear them everyday. I refuse to wear them in public but that’s a whole other thing. I don’t get people who wear them in Walmart or other very public places. I know you want to be comfortable but come on.
That said, if I’m home they are my favorite things to wear. They just make me feel better. When you’re stressed i,f you can find a small way to improve your outlook even if it’s wearing pajama pants, it makes all the difference in the world. if you don’t believe me give it a try. (wearing PJs to work is not endorsed by this blog, unless you have a day for that that’s totally cool). For you it may not be pJs that makes you feel good. Find something small that gives you comfort, and use it liberally to get through the stressful times. A nice hot shower is another great example.
On a sidenote, the new Star Wars gave me comfort and drastically improved my attitude. (it’s really good that’s all I’m saying). More on that in a future post.
I’ve heard athletes say’ look good feel good Play good” I think there’s a lot of truth to that. If you feel good because of something you’re doing, I think it makes every day life much easier. So go put on some PJs, watch a good movie or listen to some music. Your stress may not go away, but doing something that makes you feel good either physically or emotionally helps keep it at bay.
Thanks to Evie for another fabulous comic
