Yep...I'm stressed. I, along with my dear friend Kathy, are the chairpeople for a huge fundraiser at school and we're a little bit behind. Especially in ticket sales. And...I also co-chair fish fries during Lent for our church. That will be here before you know it. So I have tasks/assignments/responsibilities for both. On top of day to day stuff. So I'm a little stressed!
I think everyone does something different when they are stressed. I typically eat. Chocolate, preferably! I am going to write an entire blog sometime soon on my love for chocolate. It makes me feel good. No really...it does! If I can't have chocolate, then it has to be some other kind of sweet treat. You can say I have a sweet tooth. I love sweets...cookies, cake, candy, especially chocolate! So when I am stressed, I usually eat something sweet and feel better. Not such a great thing to do for my body, I know.
Well...today instead of eating chocolate, I rode the bike for 30 minutes. 10 miles later, I felt much better. Hmmm...I might be onto something here. Maybe I will try exercising instead of eating when I am stressed. I'm not sure if that is totally going to work though, because I am still thinking about that chocolate. But instead, I am going to try to think about all of the good I just did by riding the bike.
What do you do when you are stressed? I also tend to get a little snippy. My family takes the brunt of that. Unfortunately for them! Chocolate, however, seems to keep my snippy comments at bay. Yes...I love that chocolate, but today, I love the bike!
