If You're Diabetic, You Should Keep Your Cool When Your Temper Is Hot!

Would you be surprised to hear that it is not stress that knocks your blood sugar clear out of the ball park? It's true. I know you've heard that stress raises blood sugar, but it doesn't.

How you react to stress, however, can have a huge impact on blood sugar. If you tend to fly off the handle quickly or plot revenge for decades against someone who has done you wrong, then you may want to re-think your strategy for dealing with stress.

Just as every person is different, so are the methods of coping with stress. Find a few tried-and-true, sure-fire ways that will work for you. For some people, yoga seems to have a calming effect and dissolve stress. Most people turn to some form of physical activity to help melt stress away. Some people like to talk with a close friend and "vent" their feelings.

Some ways I deal with stress include chiropractic adjustments, massage and a long soak in my jacuzzi (Calgon, take me away!) If the stress is particularly hurtful to me I have to visit my prayer closet and be alone with God for a while. Prayer and meditation have done wonders for me more than once.

Whatever you do, do not turn to food for comfort or solace. The last thing a diabetic needs is to become an emotional eater. Don't even go there!

There are things in life that have the potential to upset us. Keep in mind there are also just as many creative ways to cope with the stresses of daily living. As diabetics, it's imperative to find a coping mechanism that works effectively for you and use it as often as possible.

If you are a type 2 diabetic, I'd like to invite you to my blog! I don't want anyone to feel alone in the fight. You are definitely not alone. I'd love to talk with you about the unique lifestyle we have no choice but to embrace. Come over to my blog - and let's talk about type 2 diabetes!
