Striking down Stress

Do you ever feel like you’re having a really bad day?

I still remember this particular day... it was bad from the moment my alarm went off. Stress at working, running late, Little Charlie was on a nursing strike… which then made him incredibly cranky for the babysitter… My head felt like it was going to explode!

Only it didn’t stop with that feeling… As the afternoon progressed my forehead started to hurt… and a volcano started to erupt on my face! Just what I needed for a bad day was a giant zit screaming look at me!!

(Ok, I guess it wasn’t that bad…) But it reminded me of how much our bodies reflect our attitude. I was stressed so lunch was a wash and instead of consuming some healthy options, I enjoyed a variety pack of candy bars after returning from the office ranging from crunch, crunch crisp, twizzlers…

Pumping in chocolate at that rate no wonder my face was exploding! My only consolation was that I did move my water jug closer so I drank a small ocean.

Stress isn’t leaving, so finding a good way to move forward with it is very necessary. Even though I made a few poor choices with the candy bars, I moved towards a better goal as I dove into my water bottle.

The day’s not over till we fall into bed, so get back up smile that’s what I said!

How do you handle stressful days?
