Are you S……….. STRESSED???

If you are eating well and seem to be stuck not losing weight, think about the stress in your life.

When we are stressed we release the stress hormone cortisol into our system and this stops your body from letting go of the fat, it holds onto it, in a sort of fight or flight mode.

So in today’s busy world how can we reduce stress?

I like to meditate, even if I only manage 5 minutes a day, just simply sitting in silence and letting your mind be clear can do wonders for reducing anxiety and stress.

Try this exercise today, find a quiet place, sit down, close your eyes and simply listen to all the little sounds that you hear, let your mind wander, imagine all the thoughts are like buses going past you, watch them go past and off into the distance, take deep breaths.

Let me know if you manage it!
