Since delivering my stress management presentations to three different venues over the past few months, it's come to my attention just how hungry our society is for factual information on stress in the body. I already knew stress was a hot topic, but I had no idea this message would be received so widely! The thing is: stress was the turning point in my story. So I get it! And I really, really want you to understand just how much control you have over stress levels. Stress hurts the body in so many unique ways that yes, it affects sleep, yes, it affects weight, yes, it affects cravings...and there is real scientific evidence to back this up! I'm starting a series on stress today and would love to first gather questions from readers here at Nourished! So if you've been observing the blog from the side of the room for a while now (ya, you! I can see the website stats. I know you're here!), please feel free to chime in about the information you'd like to hear regarding stress.
I'll leave you with one simple technique to keep stress levels low this weekend and you'll have to just come back in the coming weeks for more. Ready?
Hopefully, this feels intuitive. In all honesty though, when you're living with prolonged exposure to adrenaline, your body thinks its having an emergency, so deep breathing is the first thing to go. Fill up your lungs all the way and then let that breath all the way out. Tell adrenaline to dissipate. Do you feel it working?
