Stress: A Poem -- 3rd Grade Style

S is for Superwoman. I am not. 
T is for the Tension I hold in my jaw when I try to do everything all at once.
R is for the sweet Realization that failure is a critical part of growth, not something to fear and obsess over.
E is for Erica...the epitome of stressed out in this moment.
S is for my Shoulders.. and how they creep up toward my ears.
S is for Savasana, Sidebends, Spas, Sipping herbal tea, Sweet friends, Sunny days, Silly pets, and all the other things that help manage the daily stress in my life.

How do you handle the particularly horrible, stressful times?
