Life’s Roller Coaster Ride
Hands up who has been on a roller coaster just recently? Not an actual roller coaster but the one we call life! There are times when it seems that everything is thrown in our path, stopping us doing what we actually want to do! It could be related to time, it could be money or it could just be having to deal with other matters that need your attention. Some would say but “that’s life” and yes it is true but then there are times when it does cause us stress, upset, agro or just an inconvenience.
Unfortunately what then happens for many is it then becomes the trigger for us to eat the wrong foods, perhaps just grabbing what we can when we can, for us to reach for that bottle or wine or to say oh I really haven’t got the time to go to my fitness class or to go for a walk etc.
Yes there are times when it is impossible to do what we want to do but if we are not careful that time span gets longer and longer and even though that “situation” has been overcome we are still using it as an excuse.
As it has been well proven, at times when we feel the most stressed, the perfect antidote is to exercise. The release of endorphins during exercise makes us feel better and can put a little spring back into our step. Eating the wrong foods too can in fact make us feel worse, as what our bodies need at a time of “fight or flight” is good nutrition. By giving our bodies the right fuel will mean they can work efficiently and effectively, again giving us the energy to deal with whatever life is throwing at us at that time.
I realise it is all very well me saying this here but if it is possible, at the times when life does throw an obstacle in our paths or we feel we are on that rollercoaster, stop for a minute and simply breathe. Then take a moment to think about the choices you are making at that time and whether they will help or perhaps hinder the way you feel.
