I like to think of myself as a proactive person - if I have a problem, I deal with it. So, to protect myself from going mad from stress during the somewhat tense work circumstances at the moment, I've resorted to several stress relief methods.
First one - exercise. If I could find a way to bottle the endorphins from exercise, I wouldn't need to work again! Exercise seems to cure most stress related feelings. The gym has finally finished their renovations, so I can exercise without breathing in fumes of who knows what. My training is going reasonably well for the marathon. My heart and lungs are feeling really fit and strong, but sometimes my legs just seem to die on me and get really tired and sore. I am going in a race next week in Shanghai, so that will be a great place to test my fitness!
