hey all, long story short i have been signed off work for 2 weeks with “stress”. It aint totally a bad thing but im having trouble chilling out.
Basically im a prison officer, can be very stressful and the unit i am on is.While at work over the weekend my face comes out in red blotches, i went home hoping it would go but called in sick the next day and the doctor asked me a few questions about when it happened/why etc ,i went on a bit of a rant and he says im stressed out. He gave me some creams (i have eczema anyway)and some sleeping tablets and said to relax and it would go.
Now im usually a chilled guy who uses training to get rid of some stress, now i cant train until the eczema goes down as sweat irritates it. Im really struggling to stay calm. I feel my face bubbling when i get annoyed. im looking for others ways to chill and hoping some of you guys could help. I have already decided that i want to get back to training on Monday (4 days away) and even looking at things like yoga but i need things i can carry on (time permitting) when i go back to work.
Any ideas? what do you lot do when your raging and need to chill?
