Don’t give up that for this …

Day 416.

I’m going through some difficult times at the moment, and am very stressed.

I had a mini revelation today.

I realized that when I feel stressed (‘this’) the first thing I do is throw out all the good ‘thats’  …

Like, that gym visit.  I am feeling uninspired and let it slip a bit. I should be using the gym as my joy, as my stress-buster.

Like, that bad eating. Good eating goes out the window and becomes bad eating; sugar, fried, anything. As if ‘that’ bad food will remove ‘this’ stress.

It is not a balancing act of one in and one out.

All my new ‘thats’ should be kept firmly in place to deal with ‘this’ stress.

  1. And maybe consider some others, neither “good” or “bad”.
    If you are tired and the gym seems too much,how about a massage? A yin yoga class? A walk?
    if you want to snack how about dinner and then dessert? Cheese and crackers for a meal, etc.

    Finding that middle ground of soothing can be very helpful.

    1. hi!!! thanks for that and this and that and this… hahaha I was getting wrapped up in them… yes, good point, doesn’t have to be all discipline related… was just trying to relate that i let the good habits i’m developing go out the window at the drop of a stress. was just interesting to me.
