There is this Spanish podcast that I sometimes listen to. It’s a mix of news, sports, business commentary, and some psychology segments published several times per week. During one of those psychology portions they talked about what the most stressful events in our lives are. Having and raising children, moving (as in changing residency) and losing or getting a new job were the top events according to some polling they did.
For the past weeks I’ve been getting everything set up to make my own move to another country, and the closer the moving date gets, the more I understand how stressful it can get. I still have about a week before the actual move takes place, so I intend to use that time to finish some posts that have been laying around, begin writing some new ones, and possibly make some changes when it comes to this blog’s posting schedule or topics. I’m working on that, and haven’t figured it out, so I can’t tell you more about it.
This post, however, does act as motivation to begin a short series on stress: what it is, how it can be managed, when it goes from useful into dangerous, and the effects of poorly managed stress are. Again, I’m thinking this through, so it may take two or three weeks for anything to be posted on that subject, but don’t be surprised if it does.
Anyhow, aside from this post, you can expect our regular to resume this week.
Read you later!
