Hello, I'm here to teach myself how to care for me! I'm a wife, mother of three grown children, and grandmother to five.
I love the great outdoors, my best friend....Buttercup (a quarter horse) and most of all .....I love Jesus Christ

Personal Information:
"I used to be that way, but now I am different"... quote by Linda Spangle.


Other Information:
- Take a few deep breaths. Counting to 10 can also help.
- Remind yourself where you are. Look around, notice and name the colors and shapes in the space around you.
- Notice the physical sensations you are experiencing. Whether it’s a sinking feeling, turmoil in your stomach, tension in your hands or jaw, restricted breathing, or heat on the back of your neck, try to name the feelings that go with the sensation.

Using those tips to ground yourself can really help diffuse the situation and stop the likelihood of emotional eating right in its tracks. This can take as little as a minute, or if you like, you can spend more time doing this. To extend this process even further, you can also do a self-check and ask yourself some of the following questions:

- Is this a situation that I can control?
- Is there anything I can do right now that will change or help this situation?
- How big a deal is this, anyway?
