    • I ask this because, nursing school and the semesters of pre requisites beforehand had started to take its toll on my health. I started gaining weight back after losing nearly 50 pounds, I was not sleeping, I looked old and frumpy when I looked in the mirror and I was pretty stressed most of the time.

      I made a promise to myself this semester that I was not going to sacrifice my health for anything anymore. I’m back on my treadmill, eating well, sleeping better, and on the right path again. If I get B’s this semester, so be it. But, at least I’ll have my health and my sanity.

      How do you set priorities when life gets busy?

    • I’m not good at prioritizing at all.  I tend to just muddle thru hoping things will “get better soon“.

      However since I started working full time, I find that I don’t have the time that muddling thru takes. I have to stick to a schedule if I’m going to manage to work 48 hrs a week.  And if I’m going to keep up the pace, I have to eat right and get enough sleep.  So, that’s about all I do on weekdays, work, come home and eat, do a load of laundry, shower, and sleep and do it all over again tomorrow.

    • I’m not good at it either, the stress is killing me slowly but surely.

    • heartheart to all of you!heart  When I had a busy life complete with job stress, taking care of family, pets, home, did take a major toll on me.  I became very ill, had physical problems on top of emotional stress, hated everything in my life and thought I would eventually die, but had a nervous breakdown instead.

      So, since 2009, my life is now much slower, I eat well, exercise, focus on only important things, concentrate on goals, and laugh, joke and act silly every chance I get.

    • I went back to work full time.  I really try to stick to just working 40 hours a week unless it’s absolutely necessary.  I am not a workaholic.  When I’m at home, I do not think about work.

      I also try to exercise 3 times a week religiously.  I find this helps with overall stress and sanity.  

      I’m very consistent in the times I go to bed and wake up (at least during the week).

      For now, I don’t have my kids involved in any extra curricular activities except Lego club so I don’t have to worry about taking them anywhere after work and that helps out tremendously as I don’t HAVE to be home at a certain time.

      I tell myself You can’t do it all so focus on what’s important to you.  For me that’s health and family.  If dishes sit in the sink overnight, so be it.
