The topic of my post on the Equals Record this week: ways of coping with stress. One tried-and-true method? Chocolate (in moderation, of course). But what happens when the sweet stuff isn't enough?
An excerpt from the new post: Stress happens. To everyone. And it has its upsides (I'm convinced, for example, that I work more efficiently under pressure). But the effects of stress aren't always pretty. For the most part, stress is uncomfortable. It's inevitable. It's... stressful. But as I've gotten older, I've learned that it doesn't have to mean my day is ruined. Having a mile-long to-do list or an encroaching deadline doesn't have to be debilitating. A blank screen doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to run and hide. Instead, it can turn into a date with a bag of chocolate-covered marshmallows.
