Please tell me I am not the only one who gets very overwhelmed in the kitchen?
Don’t get me wrong I love cooking, most of the time. I know we are blessed to have enough food. For these reasons I feel bad when I get overwhelmed and have tried to ignore it for years.
But, when I get overwhelmed and stressed (whether or not I feel it is justified) I get restless and my insomnia flares up which of course does nothing to help matters because them I am tired, and more stressed, and struggle with insomnia all the more. I have been trying to figure out my biggest stress factors, and do something to fix them, not just guiltily ignore them.
This is a huge help. I am not always great about it, but I am far more aware of what causes me stress in the kitchen. To see the five things that cause me stress (and what I do to try and fix them) head on over to Kitchen Stewardship where I contribute.
