I've been working lately on relaxing. For an O, it can be hard to say "I can only do my best", but I'm trying. Also reminding myself that everyone around me can only do their best as well. My son acts out when he's bored or needs attention, he's pretty near perfect the rest of the time. Usually just taking a few minutes to tickle him or dance with him will make him happy and back to his perfect self. Works better than getting worked up over it.
I've been doing alternate nostril breathing before bed, though I need to do it other times throughout the day. I'm also trying to make time to eat regularly, because getting upset on an empty stomach is pretty hard for me to recover from...takes me days to get the shakes out.
I got my exercise in yesterday by walking 3 miles on the treadmill. I probably won't make it on the treadmill today though, I had to work through my son's nap, but there's still a possibility. I think I'm making progress, anyhow.
