Could my triggers be non-food related? I am feeling especially overwhelmed this week:
- too many coinciding work project deadlines
- too many personal errands going undone (new eyeglasses, haircut, sorting the recyclables)
- too many depressing news stories (debt ceilings, rioting youth, abused animals)
- too many postponed vacations
After measuring my GI tract's response to food triggers, I would like to make a calculated effort to reduce non-food "stressors" to see if this makes a difference. If I can't "eliminate" them, maybe I can increase my de-stressing tactics.
For instance: Look at charming blogs!
Like Color Me Katie, a wonderful blog of art, performance and observation by Brooklyn artist Katie Sokoler:
