We talked about dealing with stress during Basque class on Monday. It makes us use the language but more importantly, it helps us to know each other better. Everybody mentioned work and hurried living as the main sources of stress. Then, each of us shared with the group what we do to keep it together: exercise, meditation, eat chocolate or spend time with friends. In my case, I also write.
I don’t throw emails away. I keep them all neatly organized in folders with your names, broken down by company if they’re related to my translation business. The latter helps me when I work on similar documents or to check on something if a customer has a question. Why I keep the rest, I have no clue. I hardly ever go back to read them, and the ones I do, I shouldn’t. They’re past their expiration date and make me sick. My stomach ties up in knots and it hurts like crazy.
