stress all around

It does seem to be everywhere... I know I'm feeling it. Stress about work, stress about the economy, stress that I'm not living my life to its fullest. Vacations don't help, sleep doesn't help. I want to shake things up, I want to turn left and be pointed at a right angle to reality, and step out for a bit.

Maybe I should read Anansi Boys. It was nicely escapist; the audiobook was well suited for the drive down to DC.

I totally notice my temperament suffers when I don't get enough exercise. I think there's a positive feedback loop here: if you feel better, you'll sleep better, so you'll be more productive the next day, which will make you feel better... or if you feel crappy, you won't sleep as well, which will hose you the next day, which will make you feel worse.

Setting up a trainer appointment also dovetails well with short-term goals: if you go, that's an accomplished goal. It's one that's easy to hit, and more importantly, you cannot secondguess whether you actually did or didn't. (E.g., "Well, I wrote an essay, true, but it sucked.") Sometimes when I'm in a funk, I pay a bit more attention to make sure my goals will be satisfying when I complete them.
