Under a lot of stress! Your probably craving more meat in your diet! This is one way to help you keep more grounded. It will also help you fight being drained as much. Those challenging people who get off on pushing your buttons, can be fought temporarily by having more meat in your diet. If you can, though have an exit plan to remove them or yourself from the situation if possible.
Seeing a therapist, might also give you some strategies on how to fight back and keep your sanity. There are some people who just think its sport to mess with other people. Sometimes they’re your boss or a co-worker. In these situations, see if you can change positions? Going to HR is usually a joke, same with those surveys. The company doesn’t really care if you’re a happy worker. They’re just trying to find out if your planning on suing them or basically a problem.
If you can find a gym, to workout that will also help with the stress. Can’t afford a gym then you might want to take a part-time job that allows you to move around more physically and get the same benefits of a gym.
If the stressor is family, then you have a lot more wiggle room. You can decide to see them on your terms? Screen your calls, texts, email after all that’s what technology is for! Have buffers in place, this means you have an agreement with friends, family or spouse that you won’t be caught alone with that person.
