Life can get downright overwhelming at times. How do you handle times of ongoing stress? Like Faydra Koenig mentions in her new blog post Living While in Personal Crisis it’s all too easy to succumb to the temptation of binge eating in yoga pants while numbing your mind on Netflix reruns.
And you know what…that’s okay. For a little while.
But when it starts to drag out for weeks or months, it’s time for you to take action. Don’t know where to start? Living While in Personal Crisis gives you actionable steps to take so that you can start to feel alive again. She’s done the thinking for you.
Crisis happens. You think I raised my hand and volunteered to hook myself to the scandal that hit my family? Ummmm, no. Emphatic NO! Did it happen anyway, yes. Sitting in my yoga pants, eating chips and dip (man I love chips and dip) was my silent middle-finger to my situation. Weathering my storm zapped my energy and for a moment I found sustenance in Reduced Fat Ruffles and this sour-cream-Ranch-dip-thing I like to make. (Don’t judge me, you jerk) After a while, the thought of mixing up the dip and going to the store for more chips felt like a misuse of my time. I started to want more. I wanted to stop going out to get chips and I wanted to go out and get a life. No one was coming over to moderate my chip intake and tell me that there was more to life. I had to find it for myself.
I’m filing this one away on Pinterest for future reference. In our family, there’s always something around the corner…and I like chips too.
