I’m sitting in the Beales Hotel in Hatfield waiting for a Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association course on stress management & wellbeing. I was confused by the course name on the board in reception but I guess a lot of accountants don’t want to admit to anything a prissy as stress. It’s still a macho world.
Stress can utterly ruin your health, relationships and life. It doesn’t have to be rational, I get stressed over the most irrational things ever. Being late is my worst, and I get wound up out of all proportion. There are others but they’re probably for another time or place.
I guess we all have our coping strategies and that’s why I’m on the course, to develop some more. I’ll update the post with my thoughts on it later
