It’s easy for anyone to overeat, under eat, eat because of a stressful situation or try to cover an emotional response by smothering it with food. We’ve all been there at one time or another. The worse way to respond to our poor eating habits is to let guilt set in and overwhelm us and continue to eat poorly. If we allow ourselves to do that; we let that one bad day turn in to two, then three and so on. Whether it was a stressful day at work that led you to visit your coworker’s candy drawer six times or the argument with your spouse that found you searching through the cupboards at midnight, its imperative you allow yourself to take a deep breath – and move forward. Allow tomorrow to be a fresh start. Allow yourself one crazy day of meltdowns and then pick yourself back up and regain some perspective. Hopefully tomorrow will find us all calmer. There’s so much in the world we can’t control but we do have power over how we manage the chaos.

No chaos, no creation. Evidence: the kitchen at mealtime.
