Today My IT played up, big time!
‘The connection to the server failed’ x a million!!!
Luckily I was well equipped for such an eventuality, I had my sketch pad handy.
So rather than getting super stressed whilst I was hopefully waiting for the help desk to sort me out, or re starting the lap top, yet again, I simply did a sketch – or a few sketches.
So rather than waste an hour or two I had a pretty nice hour or two! I kept the sketches really simple – just the silhouettes of rabbits as per Pinterest.
The lack of work would have happened whatever I’d done so there was no point stressing out.
The fact I didn’t stress out and that I did something calming meant that when I was up and running with IT again I was super productive!
Stress really does impact on our ability to perform at our best, it is also really exhausting. If you need to find a calmer way forward the come on a Mindfulness session to see how you could take a better approach and achieve more.
