In times of stress...

It's weird how I have to FORCE myself to eat. My event is tomorrow. Things are going all wacky and I'm making myself sick over every detail. Do I want to eat a bag of chips and a pint of Ben and Jerry's? Kind of. Do I? No. I actually want to hide under a rock and NEVER appear EVER again. Tomorrow can't come fast enough. Then I will buy stock in the Vermont ice cream business, I swear. So tell me, what are your stress coping mechanisms? Help a sister out.

I'm with ya... lots of stress and nerves for me lately too. What's weird is that SOMETIMES it makes me want to nibble non-stop, and other times, like yesterday, I go for the apple when there are baskets and baskets of cookies available. Totally weird.

I was going to offer up Cute Overload as a stress-reliever but just in time remembered your aversion to furry things. I'm sorry I don't have any more solutions... although a few deep breaths can go a surprisingly long way.

Good luck with the event -- I'm sure it will go off wonderfully with you at the helm!

whatever you do don't throw up...ick...(that's what I do when I am stressed - not on purpose just happens!!!)

Go for a kick ass run if you have time!!!

Jess' s Food Coma said...

Make a list, let it out-out loud or on paper. Take a bubble bath. DRINK. Just a few ideas!

Tomorrow is going to be great for you--I know it!

Sadly, I have no recommendations for stress relieving. Nothing positive anyway.

Good luck with your event tomorrow!

Unfortunately, I don't have good tips for coping with stress - other than taking deep breaths and trying not to think about it too much...

Oh, and I try to repeat to myself that I can do this, and that it will all go well...

I'm sure that your event will go very well and that you will be proud of it once it's all over...

You rock!! :)

it comes done to food (which is why I'm on WW) and sleep, sleep, sleep.

you know what, i sit down someplace quiet with a beverage and close my eyes and imagine the worst case scenario. and i let myself problem solve what i would do while i'm calm, instead of in the moment when i'm stressed. i also realize that if something goes wrong, the floor won't drop from beneath my feet and i won't get sucked into hell. everything will be okay. and you know what, you're a great person no matter what happens tomorrow. nothing is going to change that!

I self soothe and self medicate.
Food.
Smokes.
Alcohol.
Xanex.
It can really get away from me if I'm not careful but I'm usually fairly careful. Best of luck taming your beast within! Just remember that no matter how nasty and snarling that beast is, you are still in charge!

well considering it is event day - I'll just say that I hope everything is going smoothly!!! I hope that whatever coping mechanism you used worked!!
