As if Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice weren’t enough, Shonda Rhimes reached down in her creative bag of tricks and explored the real life of D.C. fixer Judy Smith and delivered us a show that has taken the airwaves by storm.
Why is this show so good are you wondering? ANSWER –You know we love drama. It’s all about dirty little secrets, the dirty little secrets of politicians, public figures, and very important people. Dirty little secrets that cause stress! Ha, bet you were wondering what the devil My Health Mondays had to do with my favorite TV show. Just trying to lighten the space a little her at Rx Fitness Lady. Really, this show is so good that some of my fellow fans had a watch party for the winter finale. One of the biggest issues everyone talks about is the
undercover affair of Fitz, Mr. President & Olivia Pope, the no nonsense cutthroat fixer, well at least she is when she isn’t dealing with Fitz, her little weakness.
The affair for the purposes of My Health Mondays will represent emotional stress.
I could make a list of other examples of stressful situations besides dating a married man, however since they all deal with the way we physically and mentally interact in relationships with spouses, significant others, friends, family, and acquaintances, I’ll let you govern yourself as it pertains to your life, if at all.
Stress can be detrimental to your health. It can play a factor in a number of diseases, one being a causing agent to your battles with Insomnia.
Most importantly, I wanted to share that it can cause a very serious state of depression and anxiety (more on these topics on a future My Health Monday).
If you allow something/someone to stress you, you will exhibit feelings of anger, anxiety, and repetitive frustration. If you are always ticked, wondering and being suspicious, throwing out accusations, (all characteristics you will develop if in a stressful situation) you are making it tough on those arteries of yours! You will be more prone to heart attacks and other coronary diseases. You could really be damaging your health!
Do you feel that you could be suffering from depression? Are you always mad? Have you isolated yourself from people?
What did we learn from Olivia Pope! You all see her in the room hyperventilating and stuff, making bad decisions, can’t really sleep at night, waiting around for that phone call from Fitz at night. What about the episode “The Other Woman”? It was hit! It is REAL LIFE! Holidays spent alone, your child is an outsider, you are lonely at night, etc. etc. etc. Stress Stress Stress!
Even though we love the show, the reality is when you allow yourself to continue in a stressful situation, it’s like giving yourself an STD. You are infecting your mind! Doesn’t that sound crazy?
Physically try to schedule fitness into your routine, regular prayer, and meditation. The most promising and peaceful future however lies in eliminating the situation. If the stress is something that can’t be eliminated, try changing the way you think about it. The last message of the year from the pulpit where I attended service talked about turning your back on stuff in 2013. I challenge you, if you are dealing with stress that is avoidable to Turn Your Back and walk away!
