Though you might find yourself experiencing moments of happiness, you likely find that you cannot sustain those moments because you have too much stress in your life, too many worries, or too frequent aches and pains.
The typical reaction when the tough starts happening is that your old negative habits start kicking in because these habits serve to comfort you. They help you cope during times of need. And even though you know that eating a pint of ice cream every night isn’t good for you, you can’t stop because you feel this eating binge is actually helping you cope.
You have two choices…either get rid of the stress in your life or develop better, healthier and really satisfying habits that not only help you cope, but enable you to thrive.
