What do you grab for comfort?

April is home to Stress Awareness Month. We all react and cope differently to stress. I personally often tend to grab a chocolate bar when I am stressed or if I am having a bad day. It gives me short-term relief but I know it isn’t a long-term fix! Plus, it’s not good for the waistline…

So I researched alternative ways to help relieve stress that are healthier choices.

Here are a few of my self comforting techniques  instead of reaching for the sugary fix:

~Create a comforting space (bedroom, etc)

~Get fresh air or a change of scenery

~Show yourself some self compassion

~Run a hot bubble bath

~Comfort often comes from the people around you

It may be we think at times only a sweet fix will do and that’s ok. But try having the 70% plus dark chocolate in the cupboard at least then you are also getting some antioxidants, minerals and it is said to alleviate stress! But remember one bite is enough…
