It has been a stressful few weeks. Sick kids, tired mama, a friends tragedy... just a lot.
I was overwhelmed. Stressed... at my limit.
It is kind of easy to see when I get very stressed and overwhelmed. My eating changes, my tone changes, I have dreams about Utah, and I kind of reset to the Utah rules.
My clothes are folded to PCS structure, my bed is made to PCS structure; as I get more stressed more PCS things come out. I become obsessive about cleaning, schedule crazy.. it is interesting to say the least.
Defaulting to these behaviors is a lot better than the alternative of defaulting to more severe eating issues or other things.
It is a place that my brain can go into neutral for a while. So I can re-balance myself and deal with the issues at hand.
Do you have any default behaviors or habits that you do when stressed or overwhelmed?
