This is what my Monday’s look like: picture me, sitting at a computer, papers sprawled out all over the place, tapping my favorite zebra pen on the desk, and blaring a mix of Led Zeppelin and Streetlight Manifesto on Pandora – (STREETLIGHT FOR ROSE ROCK WHOO!)-ahem, sorry… Anyway, is that picture in your mind? Good. Cause that’s exactly what’s happening.
I just want to gush for a second on how much I adore Led Zeppelin. They are my go to band for stress relief. If you aren’t a fan, familiarize yourself. QUICKLY. This is one of my personal favorites by them (click here).
Throughout that day we all have those stressful moments when we feel so overwhelmed, we have no idea how we’re going to get through the rest of the day. My solution to this ever-present problem is: eating something absolutely disgustingly terrible for me. Today my choice was the cookie dough that can be purchased from Camelot.So good, but so bad. Now, I know that eating bad things isn’t a solution to a problem, in fact it probably causes more problems cause you are thinking to yourself “Self, did you really just eat that?” My suggestion is, eat it BUT don’t make it a habit. Stress eating is an actual diagnoses and a serious problem for some people.
Eat a candy bar or have a little ice cream if you are having a bad day. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Just be wise with what and how much you are putting into your body. I try to save my money throughout the week and buy myself a big “Hey, you did good this week, eat this delicious burger from Five Guys” dinner once or twice a month. Sometimes, you have to.Whatever keeps you sane during the stressful school times is what you should be doing. Take a walk in this bi-polar Albany weather, go bowling, do a dance, or eat a crazy unhealthy dinner every once in a while! In the end, you know what’s right for you. 🙂
