Stress, It’s What’s for Dinner

I often find that the second I wake up in the morning, my body is shutting down before I can even put my feet on the ground and make any kind of attempt to start the day. I find myself stressed with work, my health, finances, relationships – LIFE. And since I can never pinpoint what the true problem is, I always let the stress fall onto work. Reports, terminations, birthdays, lunches, coffee dates, presentations – the list goes on. I think the problem I have been having is that since March I was doing the double-duty job. I had moved into a new role, but since my old job hadn’t been back-filled yet,  so I was struggling to not suck at both jobs. I was excited to learn my new role and wanted to only think about that and then my old job was suffering because of my new job but I wasn’t 100% in the new job so that was suffering, too. And it was in a word: A MESS. So, THEN, my co-hort in my new job goes out on maternity leave (precious baby, by the way.) and then my old boss was finally like, “Okay, I can let you go.” But my stress level is still high because my workload is huge because I am still doing two jobs.

So, where do we turn to in times of stress?

Is it this? Even though this food looks wonderful and tasty. I love fruits and veggies!

But I tend to lean towards…

I cannot get enough SWEETS when I am stressed.

I haven’t figured out how to get through stressful pinches in my life sans sweets.

  • What do you do to survive stressful points in your life?
  • What food do you gravitate towards when you’re stressed?

I’ve also never learned how to really address the stresses in my life.

  • How do you get through stress?
  • What happens if it gets to be TOO MUCH?

I’m really interested in your thoughts as stress is often directly associated with our personal health.
