Food for thought from Revive

What tyThe hot phonepe of stress management skills or habits have we developed? The list of possibilities can be quite long. Here’s a taste:

The gym, comfort food, smoking, drinking, hitting, starving oneself, screaming, displaced anger, the bar, sports, depression, rages, tantrums, drugs, friends, headaches, road rage, throwing, pounding, tuning-out, sex, self-hatred, escape-reading, eastern meditation and yoga, shame, workaholic, escape-travel, cursing, self-centeredness, driving recklessly, yelling, over-reacting, sensitivity, competitiveness, lack of concentration, sleeplessness, obsessive social media, the silent treatment, OCD, drama, intolerance, hair-trigger temper, withdrawal, flipping off strangers, picking fights, people-pleasing, perfectionism, irritability, chronic tardiness, inconsiderate of others because actually, it’s-all-about-me, I’m stressed out already!

Is it to our demise that we have such a variety of “management” resources? I find it interesting that we have so many euphemisms for basic bad behavior or adult tantrums. Goodness knows I’m not immune to it, I do want to draw attention to it though.
