With college, a second job search, and piling bills it's not a wonder that I am stressed. Even summers have become a time for the unnecessary stresses and I am actively searching easy as well as long term fixes. The easiest, and possibly most stressful 'de-stressor' is comfort food. During finals or exams I have a tendency to turn straight to the sugary goodness or even carby greatness of all the foods I shouldn't eat. With multiple food allergies (it's a shorter list to tell you what I'm not allergic to or intolerant of), I end up taking in a random array of items laced with possible risk.
I love sports, but get stressed if I let a teammate down or don't play very well.
Overall, I have a harder time getting motivated to do things that can potentially lighten my stress load because when I make it home after a relatively long day all I want to do is sleep.
I definitely need a hand in the stress department because I know it is affecting my family and friends when they are the main ones trying to make sure I stay stress free.
