That Inner Two-Year Old

Friday, September 14, 2012

I read a SparkPeople article this morning about revamping your morning routine to make it less stressful. Apparently, the more frenzied your morning routine is, the more likely your 'inner two-year old' is likely to gain control. This can lead to overeating for spite, as if Mom said NO!

It was like a revelation! I recognize that little imp that can sabotage my best intentions!

Well, guess what. I am the grown-up, I can control a two-year old, I dont care what kind of tantrum she decides to have. I can choose how to react, whether it is walking away, a short trip to the time-out corner, or occasionally relenting and controlling the outburst.

Thanks for the analogy, whoever wrote that article! You gave me another tool to use!
