Alexandria, VA – History Everywhere, Stress Everywhere
A city perfectly located; The Old Town Historic District on the Potomac, Mount Vernon nearby, our Nation’s Capital a stone’s throw away. High employment, high job demands. One moment you’re on your commute, your day is long and frenetic, then the commute home. Are you sometimes called back because something “has come up”?
How about you who telecommute? Are you home, but not really? Has something “come up” on the other side of the world; that something happening at some wee hour of the night?
You are in good company. “It’s normal to have some stress. Stress releases hormones that speed up your heart, make you breathe faster, and give you a burst of energy. Stress can be useful when you need to focus on or finish a big project. But too much stress or being under stress for too long isn’t good for you. Constant stress can make you more likely to get sick more often. It can make chronic pain worse and can also lead to long-term health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, back problems, and depression”. (WebMd.com).
So, how do you sleep? Job demands; deadlines and late hours leave you “wired”? You need a break; a day, a weekend, a holiday- even a quiet hour of decompression? Someone who will “bend an ear”? But, is it in your best interest to “go public”?
