How is stress impacting you?
When we think about stress, we usually think about rush hour traffic or tight work deadlines.
But so much more can lead to a chronic stress response…
👉🏻Negative self talk, perfectionism, and people-pleasing
👉🏻Toxins in the environment or our personal care products
👉🏻Resentment or anger for not setting and upholding boundaries
👉🏻Overeating, undereating, skipping meals, over-exercising, or not moving enough
👉🏻Not getting a good night’s sleep
👉🏻Riding the blood sugar rollercoaster (feeling irritated or ‘hangry’ when you don’t eat isn’t normal)
👉🏻Eating on the go
While some stress in our life is a really good thing, chronic stress is the root cause of dysfunction and dis-ease in our body.
When you start focusing on NOURISHING your body and removing stressors, you’ll find that many of your goals happen naturally.
🙌🏻You’ll start to shed your excess weight because your body feels safe to do so
🙌🏻You will have more energy and balanced hormones
🙌🏻Your digestion will improve
🙌🏻You’ll no longer need to FIGHT so hard. Instead you’ll be working WITH your body.
You deserve to feel good. You don’t need to overhaul your life (because that might be stressful too!), but you can take small steps to coach up wellness and crowd out the chronic stressors.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
❤️ Swap out your personal care products for less toxic products as you run out
❤️ Go to bed 1 hour earlier (unless you’re already going to bed by 9 like me 😉
❤️ Add protein to each meal to balance blood sugar
❤️ Start each day with gratitude
Mindset matters. What you DO also matters.
