Not Getting Stressed Out Today

Monday, August 04, 2014

Today is the start of another work week for me and I already have myself stressed out before I even finish my first cup of coffee at home. A lot to do this week for my boss and he doesn't stress me out but it is the overwhelming thought of all the things I have to do. " WOW!! HANG ON A MINUTE!!," my inner voice is yelling at me. "You haven't left the house yet and you have yourself in a frenzy!" STOP IT!! Well, I realized that it was right. I make a checklist every morning when I am at work and prioritize in what order of importance each item needs to be done then I just start at #1 and work my way down. Why am I stressing myself out over nothing? I have an awesome boss who never pressures me for anything and he knows I will get the job done on time.
Ok. Deep breath in. Blow it out. Deep breath in. Blow it out. I can just feel the stress leaving my body and I feel much better and my mind is back on track. If I get stressed out, then I eat! I eat anything I can get my hands on and not even enjoy the taste of the food. Open mouth, insert food, chew twice and swallow. I don't want to do that and I won't do that!
Learn what triggers your over eating and nip it in the bud. Eating healthy is not just a day at a time monitoring but a bite at a time. Don't let little things stress you out! Think about what you are doing and you will soon have a new healthy habit. I know it is working for me.
