Wow, what an eventful week it has been – swings and roundabouts and highs and lows.
This week has been absolutely manic and I’m thrilled that the weekend is about to commence. I could definitely do with some R and R – tomorrow is going to be a very low key day for me. I’m in desperate need of recharging my energy levels as I feel completely depleted and on the vague of declaring myself run down.
Sometimes we need a bit of stress to motivate ourselves, but when that pressure becomes unbearable that’s definitely not healthy. Thankfully I’m very good at detecting when my stress levels are borderline unhealthy.
My thoughts tend to be negative, I’m very irritable and want to be left alone – very much out of character for me. Once I know I’ve reached this point I usually curb this marginal stress by distancing myself from others, giving myself plenty of time to re-group and meditate.
Meditation really vitalises my body, I feel more calm and relaxed – this is something that I’ve been doing a lot more since July, but up’ed the ante during this busy week.
Anyway, this evening I had all intentions of cooking a nice veggie dinner – you know an admixture of wonderful veggies imbued with herbs. Well I ended up baked some fish with sweet potato chips.
A healthy spin on the classic British fish and chips with no vegetables in sight. For me this meal is the equivalent of a naughty evening, eating fish masala and sweet potato chips without a side serving of greens. As I said earlier, I’m depleted of energy and needed a quick fix to munch on.
What are some of your guilty pleasures when you’re stressed out?
