I have a very stressful situation in my life that does not seem to be going away. My "defense mechanism" for problems has long been to stay in bed and sleep. Of course, I should meditate on the situation, but I do not seem to be able to do that. It is like all of my energy has been taken out of me. Maybe it is strong aversion.
This stressful situation seems like part of the path, and learning how to deal with stress seems like a critical skill in the long-term.
Do you have any recommendations on how to deal with stressful situations?
Hope you are well!
