Stress causes premature aging and is not good on your health! Not only can you make yourself physically sick from being too stressed, but also stress does nothing for weight loss.
Some tend to eat too much when stressed while others tend to eat too little when stressed. Neither of these habits is good for you.
Stress also can also cause headaches, fatigue, insomnia, and if stress is not managed it can increase your chance of having a heart attack and can contribute to diabetes, weight gain, and high blood pressure.
Find the balance in your life. Do what makes you happy and do it often. Find your passions and indulge them. Make a summer bucket list and actually set out to do those things!
Take some time off for you. Read a book, give yourself a manicure or pedicure, take a walk, cook your favorite meal, have a Netflix marathon, spend time with those you love, go for a hike, hit up the pool, or simply sit outside and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Living a healthy life is not just about being physically healthy, but it's about taking care of your mental and emotional health as well.
Choose to be happy.
