Option 2: Snow Globe Therapy
As I’ve mentioned before I feel a lot of stress from my job. I began to get concerned about gray hair and ulcers; however, I felt too young for either of these ailments so I devised some coping mechanisms.
I’ve made it my profession to teach youth various skills and life lessons. One of the things I spend my time doing is showing them how to handle their feelings when they become overwhelmed, angry or frustrated. I teach them strategies such as deep breathing, finding a relaxing hobby, or listening to music.
I do not make it a habit to take my own advice. The following strategy is not my professional opinion, merely what works for me… It may work for you…
Step One: Buy a shiny, cheerful snow globe.
Step Two: Shake it up and watch the snow twirl around whimsically.
Step Three: Smile
Step Four: Pull out a hammer and smash it to pieces.
Tip: You my combine with Option 1 and eat your kit kat while laughing menacingly as you crush the blissful wonderland.
Advice from a Qualified “Professional”: If you have eaten three or more candy bars and destroyed at least one snow globe and still feel on the verge of a)committing a crime of passion b) flinging yourself off of a building or c) throwing your phone through a solid object, proceed to option 3.
