I promised myself I would celebrate and encourage myself with victories, even when they are little victories.
My stress level has been high lately. Normally, I'm a stress eater. For quite some time now, I have managed to NOT feed my stress. It has become a littler easier to NOT reach for food. I haven't figured out how to eliminate as much stress as I would like but I'm doing better with dealing with it...at least as far as food is concerned.
Exercise helps me with the stress, as does praying, reading, writing, and my crafts. I've neglected the writing and the crafts. I'm going to try to do more of both of those.
I'm also going to try to get rid of a few things we aren't using. It will be productive, a stress-relief AND, if I donate things, someone else can benefit.
We can't always stop the stressors from approaching us but we can change how we deal with them.
