I won't go in the details but I'm having a really tough time at work, mostly a very unpleasant boss and some absolutely arrogant and downright mean students, whose last "prank" included covering my car in coffee...
I usually comfort eat but these past two weeks I have really made an effort to handle things the Spark way and so far it's working.
When the students' behaviour is bothering me, ok, making me super angry, I swim or walk jog. I also found that although I can't run because of knee pain, if I do it on a treadmill I can run for a good 15 to 20 minutes before I start to hurt.
I am good with food though I have to confess that it is more due to my level of stress that is really hampering my appettite. I mostly can't get to eat in the evening and hardly anything in the morning, I am nauseous the whole morning which I guess helps not snacking.
My back hurts from being so tensed up so I think one important thing to add is Yoga and meditation. I have never really done meditation but I'd like to try and see if it will help me manage my feelings and not let things bother me so much
