I grew up in a household, where my mom was permanently stressed out, agitated and depressed. As a child, I vowed to never go there ! This would never happen to me.!! Then I I joined the IT industry as a DBA. Long hours, little support, teach yourself, make it all happen before 7 am, when the traders get to work - kind of lifestyle. After 3 years on a large project, as the single technical support person on the project, 18 - 20 hours a day, at least 6 days a week , I had a melt down. Admittedly my mom passed away from Cancer at the same time, which was intense stress
I just thoughts I needed a holiday, and didn't give it any more thought.
Now after another 15 years of intense stress, running my own business , having children, running a farm and trying to get on top of some hairy financial situations, it happened again. But this time my whole body took part, and I didn't just land up screaming at everyone. It turns out that childhood declarations need to be backed up by knowledge of how the brain and body works.

And so the study commenced ! Stress, my friends is seriously evil. Through the kids school research projects, we learn about how harmful DDT and Roundup are to the planet, but only a handful of people out there are trying to yell to us about the dire effects of stress on our bodies.

Before I let you loose on the info graphic, I really need to get you to
Ask yourself some questions :
- What is triggering the events where I get angry / sad /depressed / over react
Now evaluate the event
- What am I trying to do when it happens?
- Was I trying to multi task?
- Did I get side tracked and sucked into this situations?
- Could I have said no?
- What else is going on in my life?
It is super smart to stop and evaluate these triggers that are pushing you too far
I find that they occur throughout the day, and the more we're working without any breaks, the more likely we are to react to the events from a truly emotional stand point. Logic doesnt get a chance to standup as our buttons get pressed. Hence my infographic is strongly focused on taking the right kind of breaks.
As a work from home parent, you may also have little people very close to us all day who become experts at knowing how to push our buttons.
