Oh, this uncertain life……..
I’ve always struggled with control. I think it became my mind’s coping mechanism after going through an emotionally troubled childhood. I used to have this incessant need of having to know every single detail of what’s going to happen in the day so that I get ready for it.
I was terrible at having to be spontaneous at things, I just couldn’t. If something came up that wasn’t planned for or wasn’t on the agenda, anxiety would take over and I wouldn’t know what to do with it.
For so many people, the first few months of the year are a stressful time. The combination of cold weather and the pressure of a new year, on top of busy work schedules, can be a lot to handle. Therefore, it is so important to take extra care of yourself and tackle stress head-on, sometimes in ways you wouldn’t expect.
Healthy Banana Bread
I could eat Banana Bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, it’s filling and comforting, and especially good warm from the oven. My recipe contains unrefined sugar and a slightly healthier grain.
Enjoy as a healthy snack, stick a slice in the kids lunch boxes and enjoy with a good cuppa!
