Chocolate lab (28 of 31)

Today during a staff meeting we were asked: What do you do to diminish stress? How do you take care of yourself?

Being a teacher In a high-stakes course with an acronymic test that students take in order to prove that their teacher if effective, I guffaw at the suggestion to “diminish stress.”  Then I ask for chocolate.

How do I take care of myself?  I could answer that in myriad ways. Sleep. Prayer. Friend time. Sleep. Tango. 31 Days blogging. Sleep.  Prayer. Hope.  Then I grab chocolate.

Inside the candy store, Sweet!, where we browsed for over an hour, there is a build-your-own candy bar confectionery.

Every home should have a chocolate lab.  Chocolate is the antithesis of stress.
