It’s no secret that there is a lot going on in the world… and in each and  every one of our lives.  It is also no surprise that stress leads to unhealthy habits and poor choices for our body.  Here are a few ways to increase the peace and keep momentum to be well, totally well:

Learn healthy ways to cope with stress, such as relying on a support system of friends or family.

Be sure to get plenty of rest and regular exercise… this will give you a sense of clarity & “workout high” that nothing else can!

Eat well… this encourages you to feel balanced, in control and physically well.  Some foods have even be proven to reduce stress!

Don’t smoke. Period.

Limit your alcohol consumption. I always used to say, “alcohol is a depressant.”  If you are sad it only brings you further down, and encourages bad decision making.

Most importantly, when things are tough you can only do so much… control the things you can control (diet, exercise, rest) and leave the rest to resolve over time.  We only have one life- why not make it the healthiest one you can?
