Impressive. What you want now, is to do that on a triple word score
Stress: is this still the situation with your father? Are you not seeing anybody about
it because it would be too expensive, or because you simply don't have the time and energy?
I think any sort of exercise will help with stress. Next time you're walking, you might like to try this meditation I found in a religious book; I tried it today and found it really made me zen out a bit.
Start walking, and start counting your paces:
1, 2, and then scroll backwards, 1.
You build up in increments of one, so:
1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... and so on until you get to ten, and then start scrolling backwards again.
It's best to do this in a quiet area so you don't always have to be dodging pedestrians, but it can be very calming.
