    Stress management is a really important part of being healthy and also helps with keeping that number on the scale under control. If our stress levels rise it can often for some people lead to poor food choices. What do you do to ensure your stress levels stay low. For me it was taking on a new less stressful role at work, along with setting boundaries in both my personal and professional life. Lastly I do activities that release positive endorphines such as taking a walking and listening to relaxing music at work. How about yourself?

    We fly home tonight, just sitting waiting for the coach pickup to take us to the airport. I'm very relaxed about flying but my partner gets very anxious, and it can be hard to deal with. His stress can/does cause him to fidget and behave in a way that I find really irritating. So that can cause me stress.

    Anyway, today's report: exercise was a good bike ride and a couple of swims. We handed the bikes back this afternoon do had to walk to the restaurant. I expect I will be doing more walking in the airport.

    Stress…. I think my job has taught me to not get stressed over the little things in life. Sometimes that is easier said then done but I often will put on some really classic rock like AC/DC and try to rattle the windows now that they are new that’s not so easy! I have also found meditation is very helpful to begin the day and ut has become a habit.

    Yes x3 I had a nice day today. Connected and bonded with my toddler so much tonight. It was nice to be so present and in the moment. I really need to do more of that! Xo

    Sounds like such a successful day Donna 🥰 @donna25trinity

    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes. I was going to cook a HelloFresh meal but was too tired and my husband is working late. So I fixed a salad and had some leftover German sausage.

    For stress at work I have to remind myself that Fretting over how much work I have to do isn’t going to help me. I take breaks away from my desk and also try to get a walk in. Planning and logging my meals help as well.

    Well done today @jmu1965 🌸

    Stress management is something I sometimes excel at, and other times struggle with. I do have a stressful career and I find that difficult to manage. How I cope:
    -Having a very supportive and loving husband who makes my outside of work hours fun
    -Asking myself "what's the worst that can happen" and talking myself through anxiety
    -Trying to let myself off the hook for certain things when I feel overwhelmed (however, this used to be the primary reason why I'd overeat, that I deserved it for how stressed I felt and that it would soothe me.. so it's about choosing the RIGHT things)
    -Exercise
    -Meditation/yoga/stretching/deep breathing
    -Getting sleep
