S & B's Stress Relief Part 2

I woke up at 4:30 am and tossed and turned.  Could not get back
to sleep.  Why?  My mind was racing.  

I started to get frantic about everything I need to do today.
Sometimes there is just too much going on, and sometimes (often) I am
just too tough on myself.  

So I made a cup of tea and sat down to start going though my emails to make
sure that I had not missed something important.  1500 messages in my inbox!

Suddenly it occurred to me ~ my mind is just like my inbox, cluttered with
messages ... some important, and many are not so important.

So  I cleared out the not so important messages ~ just dumped them in the trash.
I'm doing the same thing with those unimportant thoughts in my mind ...
just dumping them in the trash.

Ah ~ I feel better already!

I'm going to make myself another cup of tea and give Bentley a hug. Now let's
get on to the really important things, like blogging!

Susan and Bentley


  1. Great advice for us all to take. Take care and have a good day!

  2. Girl, do you have a secret admirer? THAT many messages? My head would be spinning round and round.

  3. And I think 80 messages are too many! It is important to filter nowadays.

  4. My goodness...I don't keep anything not worthwhile. I think you need to delete the old mail right away! I hope you have a wonderful day and get some good sleep tonight!!


  5. Blog away! That's how I've spent my day so far - the first I've had a good chance to spend time reading and commenting for a week! Work stresses - and vacation days caught in-between. Thinking tea about now, now that you mention it!

    Hugs to Bentley!

  6. Good advice and I'll be using it too..
    enjoy a stress free day~!

  7. Wonderful advice Susan ~ give Bentley a hug for me too~! ;-)

  8. Tea makes everything better. :-)
    Glad you were able to prioritize and turn the day around.

  9. Tea always helps, but I certainly know about the racing mind and the sleepless nights.

  10. My did you even get through filtering out that many messages?

    I love your new header with the adorable doggies.

    Hope you have a happy and stress free day!

  11. Eek! I'd be overwhelmed with that many emails too. Wonderful advice. I hope you had several soothing cups of tea.

  12. that many messages? oh my!
    love the puppy on your desk and the tray with the pretty.


Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
