It seems a pretty simple concept that if you are stressed in your life, weight loss and fitness will help relieve some of the stress but it's not as easy as that is it?
Beck's suggestions for learning to reduce stress are:
- Solve the problem - if you have problems in your life that are preventing you from focusing on your weight loss, then work on fixing them so they are no longer barriers to your goals. She has written alot about solving problems over the last few weeks so I'm not going to rehash it.
- Relax - Accept that you can't do everything 100% perfectly 100% of the time. Decide what's important and set your priorities.
- Change your mindset - If you can't fix the problem, change how you look at it, this reminds me of the Serenity Prayer.
Totally unrelated to Beck, this is my 300th post!!!! I almost can't believe I've stuck to blogging this long and I have 69 followers...that is very cool :)
