Ok, I'm doing fine now, and plodding along, eating well, exercising, dropping weight, easy peasy lemon squeezy. But, my past has shown me to yo-yo with my weight way too much. It goes up when I am stressed and down when I am not.
So, the smart thing would be to find a way now, while I'm not stressed to cope with stress that I'll encounter again for sure. I mean, maybe I'll never have a psycho manager again, I won't have teenagers, I'm smart enough now to avoid controlling men, narcissists however entertaining, have no appeal to me anymore, but no doubt I'll encounter stress in my future unless I happen to die in my sleep in the next few days.
So, what can I keep up my sleeve as a way to cope long term? I don't need cognitive therapy as I don't really have a problem with negative self talk. I don't want to meditate as I actually find the busyness of my mind very enjoyable. Yoga, if I got good at it might work, right now it's not calming at all. Running, nope bad knees.
I don't know, but it would be wise for me to address this now, instead of later.
