  • benefits of stress and diet management

    I've kept my routine fairly simple over the years. With fighting a chronic illness, I have felt it necessary to add to and increase my efforts.

    one of the most interesting things I have found with my lifestyle change over the past year or so, is the decrease in wrinkles. I didn't have many to begin with, but I had begun to have a furrowed brow. with my stress management and diet, it is markedly improved.

    Anyone else notice these fringe benefits?

        I suppose I am meditative on some level. I have recognized that I can actively shut off the thousands of things in my brain if I choose. When I notice myself getting a little overwhelmed with all I have to do, I empty it and quiet my mind even for just a bit, and it helps me to clear the way for prioritizing more effectively. Nothing has changed so much, just my approach to it.

        I have a stressful job. I can only control so much of that. Recently I had to deliver some bad news and the client warned me if I didn't leave, he was probably gonna hit me, as he was about to have a freak out.
        I stepped out and heard him slamming the table and ultimately punching a hole in the wall.
        I have encountered these reactions before. I didnt necessarily do anything different, but I didn't allow it to stay on my mind after the business was handled. I chose not to think more about it, and chose not to get involved in any emotional way. I did my job and did it well, and didn't invest in it any further. I didn't analyze what I may do differently. I handled it, and I handled the inside me as well. when it was over it was just over. I felt my blood pressure spike and I told myself just to remain focused...get them taken care of and forgive them, and let it go. and I was able to do that.

        I think we have no choice in what's happening many times, but my responses have definitely changed.
