Healthy Ways to Cope

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Some of you know that this has been a very trying week for me emotionally. I blogged about it a few days ago, and then I removed the blog later that night when I decided that it was too personal and too painful. Happily, I have turned to exercise to help me deal with the stress. I have also forced myself to choose healthy foods even when I didn't much feel like it. I count those two steps of exercising and eating healthy foods as positive ones for myself....a few years ago (pre-Spark) I probably wouldn't have done either of those! For that I am thankful.

    Still keeping you and your family in my prayers. My prescription is to read Psalm 46:10 and repeat often. emoticon emoticon

    I am glad you are turning to exercise and healthy eating. It is such a good thing to do! And indeed, SP helps us with creating new habits we can turn to when going through a very difficult time.
    Thinking of you lots. emoticon

    You've made some great self-care choices. My prayer of late has been not for a less stress-filled day, but for the grace to meet the day as it is. I share that with you.

    Hang in there...I feel for you! You did good with the healthy eating and exercise. Exercise does help with stress-so concentrate on that when times get tough. Just walk out the door and go for a short walk down the street. Even the chilly air would be invigorating! emoticon

    I missed the blog that you put up briefly. I hope you and your family are okay. I know that you have a lot of responsibility for both your parents and your husband's parents because of your husband's eyesight. I also know that you've been seeing a specialist about your own vision. Please know that I'm thinking of you, and hope that things work out well. Your family is in my prayers.
