Why is it, during times of stress or sadness, I do things that directly contradict who I want to be? Some people fight stress by going for a run, or cleaning every closet in the house, or volunteering at a soup kitchen.
I know I’m not hungry and I know there are better ways to manage my mood and I know I’ll pay for it later with short-term guilt and long term bulk but for some reason, when trouble knocks at my door I stop in the pantry for a quick snack on my way to answer it.
I think that awareness is the first step to making positive changes. I’ve got that one down. Now could someone please tell me what step two is?
