Tired and Overworked?

Often we overlook the amount of stress we are under because we are not fully conscious of it.

I’ve been guilty of this myself.

Sometimes it is easy to take on too many tasks. We end up with a schedule that is way too busy, find ourselves running in circles and feel like we’re not getting much accomplished – then we get stressed out even more!

Eventually we pay the price with relationship issues, poor nutrition, health and time management issues

We’re going to cover some ideas to help reduce stress but the first thing I’d like to address is probably the most important thing you can do starting today. 

It’s simple, you already do it every day – but once you do more of it and do it consistently, you’re likely to notice a huge difference in how you feel. 

Ready for this?

Get more sleep! 

How is getting enough sleep going to help with stress? You may be surprised.

Lack of sleep can lower our willpower, making us more likely to make unhealthy choices.

When you’re tired, you’re more susceptible to cravings for unhealthy foods.

You are also more likely to try to use sugary, caffeine-laden drinks to try to keep your energy levels up. This can lead to weight gain from consuming empty calories.

Lack of sleep also boosts your body’s production of the stress hormone cortisol. When cortisol levels are raised it causes your body to store fat, particularly around your midsection.

Don’t allow a lack of sleep to undermine the healthy lifestyle you are working so hard to attain. Find a sleep routine that works for you and stick to it. Your body will thank you!

After watching the video, I encourage you to take a step further and look at the areas of your life that are causing you stress. What are some ways you can reduce it? 

I am cheering you on,
