How to deal with stress????

How to deal with stress... I swear, this last week has been as mental as a box of frogs! Busy busy busy...

Apparently these are the steps to dealing with stress..

I personally used to like dealing with it by eating my weight (which was considerably more than it is now) in fizzy jellies, crisps and, just for good measure, chocolate.  All usually consumed after drinking copious amounts of Vino and smoking 20 Marlborough Lights (or more!)

Then I started running and what partaking in exercise and more movement in general, and found that really helped deal with anything that was stressing me and made me less inclined to hit the fridge / sweet shop / off licence / fags / all the above!

Now though, I can't run or over exert the aul joints. So I don't really know how to deal with stress. Suggestions are welcome of course.  Today, I decided that the only thing I could do was start laughing.  I literally just started laughing at all that was stressing me and came to the concussion (yes, concussion because I am not known for 'ratinonal thinking' and may have been banged on my head) that stressing about what I can't control is not a productive pass time.

Thankfully, this stressed out day did not see me reaching for the usual treats. And as much as I wanted to go into KFC in the Pavilion today and order myself a family bucket and eat it all to myself, I didn't.  Instead, I took this photo, heard my first Christmas song of the year and came home and had a bowl of soup, cup of tea and a WW cookie...

It's true what your Mam says - a cup to tea fixes everything!

 So to sum up... if your stressed, go take a Christmas-y picture and have a cup of tea....
