stress

Chronic stress is a serious health risk. It can lead to depression, decreased brain function and memory loss, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, depleted immune system, and other life-threatening health problems.

Here are some strategies for reducing stress and keeping your sanity!
———————————————————————————————

1. Talk with family, friends, or other trusted advisers about your concerns and stresses, and ask for their support.

2. Take 15 to 20 minutes a day to sit quietly, breathe deeply and think of a peaceful scene.

3. Learn to accept things you can’t change. You don’t have to solve all of life’s problems.

4. Count to 10 before answering or responding when you feel angry.

5. Don’t use smoking, drinking, overeating, drugs or caffeine to cope with stress. These will actually make things worse.

6. Look for the good in situations instead of the bad.

7. Exercise regularly. Do something you enjoy, like walking, swimming, jogging, golfing, walking a pet, or cycling. Check with your doctor to determine what activity level is right for you.

8. Think ahead about what may upset you and try to avoid it. For example, spend less time with people who bother you.

9. Plan out productive solutions to problems. For example, talk with your neighbor if the dog next door bothers you, and set clear limits on how much you’ll do for family members.

10. Learn to say no. Don’t promise too much. Give yourself enough time to get things done.

11. Join a Martial Arts program. Whether it be Karate, Kickboxing, Tai Chi, etc. These activities help both the mind and the body to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Everything Counts!

As featured on the New Providence Patch: Read our Blog on The New Providence Patch

“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” – Tony Robbins

When it comes to your exercise and eating habits – everything counts. Research in the area of human behavior indicates that over 90% of our daily actions are habitual. Everything that you decide to do (or not do) on a regular basis adds up to shape your level of health, fitness, and well-being.

In his book, “The Compound Effect,” Darren Hardy uses the example of a person who chooses to eliminate just 125 calories per day from his or her diet and in 31 months loses thirty-three pounds. The math works like this:

31 months = 940 days

940 days x 125 calories/day = 117,500 calories

117,500 divided by 3,500 calories per pound = 33.5 pounds!

Is this a bit of an over simplification? Perhaps, but the principle is sound. The calories that you consume (and burn) according to your daily habits will compound over time.

By the way, a 12 oz. can of cola has 150 calories. By simply substituting one bottle of water for one can of soda each day, you would instantly eliminate 150 calories from your diet. Do you work in a place where co-workers take turns brining in doughnuts or doughnut holes each morning? Two of those little doughnut holes contain between 120 and 140 calories. Half of a glazed doughnut contains about 125 calories. Caloric values of almost anything you eat can be found by doing a quick internet search.

You can now see how making a very small improvement in your diet could easily lead to cutting 125 calories. Now just imagine if you combined that change with a regular exercise routine – your results would increase exponentially.

“The things that are easy to do are also easy not to do.” – Jim Rohn

The best way to make this simple, healthy change is to track what you eat every day for a week. Keep a small pad and a pen with you and jot down everything that you eat or drink. This is not fun or easy, but it is educational. You will uncover hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of empty calories in your diet that are the result of mindless snacking and poor food choices. Armed with this information you can then take a step towards making small (or even large) changes in your daily eating habits and start your own positive compound effect.
