My SB Phase 1 attempt unfortunately coincided with intense physical and mental fatigue, stress, and busyness. So, I gave myself permission to not continue with Phase 1 until I regain some equilibrium. One thing that I realized is that I allow myself to absorb far too much stress, anxiety, and frantic energy from stressed out people around me. This has lead to daily, throbbing tension headaches, exhaustion, lack of creativity, and short temperedness with loved ones. So, I am making it a point to respond to stress and panic in others with calm, humble optimism, refusing to allow myself to get pulled into the vortex of panic while still humbly (not smugly!) offering cheerful support.
I will resume blogging SB phase 1 experiences, tips, and menus when I feel ready to continue or have made enough modifications to successfully complete a 30 day experiment with it. :)
