The Control Rule

My Method For Battling Stress And Anxiety

The Most Important Thing

  • I developed the bad habit of biting my nails. I have tried almost everything, but when I am stressed I chew them so hard to make them bleed.
  • I find myself eating way more than usual when I am stressed. I tend to crave junk food more than I should.
  • I hardly smile. I should smile more. When I am tense I am in my own world. I rarely let myself go. This means a pretty expressionless face way too often.

Do I Have Control?

  • Things I can control.

The Battle Is On

I might be oversimplifying this. It might be that I am seeing things in a way that’s too binary. Black or white. Stressful or not.
