Tips to Manage Stress From Running Your Arts and Crafts Business

By January 22, 2013

Follow me on:

I've been more stressed out than usual lately.   Though I no longer do tax returns, there is just enough hours in the days to get all the new projects that have been backburned since last fall up and running.  Plus, I have sandwich generation issues that thankfully are improving on one side.

Last night, I just gave up trying to sleep and worked through the night.   While winding down to start the tasks for the new day, I ran across this AOL article about managing stress. Some of the 8 tips seem like they'll be quite helpful.

Also, if you've never read it,  I recommend The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker.   While it's mostly about recognizing threats of violence, the book is full of excellent info about managing anxiety.   I bought the book when it first came out on my way to a Rangers game and coudn't put it down during the game.   Subsequently, gave it to Goodwill and just recently repurchased it for my Kindle - that's how good it is.
