Up until recently, I have been a very low stress guy. I never worried about anything. However, my new job (as a grants coordinator for a large non-profit) is deadline driven and there have been several unexpected/unforeseeable bumps along the way that have me looking over my shoulder constantly. Add to that my wife being pregnant, with twins, and having lots of complications, and now I feel like I'm about to have a heart-attack.
I know these stress levels are problematic. I can't sleep, I feel like I have a knot in my stomach 24/7, I have difficulty focusing on stuff. What I don't know is what I can do about it. The pregnancy stuff will resolve itself in ~5-8 weeks (but then I'll have two infants to contend with). The job stuff will be scary for some time to come--it will get better once I have a chance to rework things, but for now there is nothing I can do to change it.
How do I lower my stress levels/kick this crappy fight-or-flight feeling?
