Beck Trek - Chapter 10 - Day 37 - Reduce Stress
Saturday, October 03, 2015
Maybe it's because I'm getting older...but I have changed the rules for my life as well as my rules for others.
I put way too much pressure on myself with my self-imposed rules for far too many years.
(Yup! About 50 years!)
Letting go is not easy, but letting go means dealing with far less disappointment when things don't go my way.
(Someone please belt out the theme song from "FROZEN.")
Disappointment leads to stress, which leads to emotional turmoil, which leads to emotional eating, which leads to weight gain, and that just adds to my stress.
I can't control what others do, but I can control my own thinking and behavior.
