Stress Makes You Fat and Forgetful.
Did you know that chronic, unmanaged stress can lead to short term memory loss? Cortisol, our stress hormone circulates through our bodies, especially the brain where it bathes the brain cells in the hippocampus. It actually kills the brain cells that are needed for short term memory. But don’t worry, when you learn to manage stress properly, new neurons can regenerate.
How to Manage Stress Quickly: One way to manage your stress on the run is to consider deep breathing. You can do it in your car, it requires little effort, you don’t need any special equipment and it helps calm you down while increasing the flow of oxygen to your cells and tissues.
Professionals are Prepared, so Prepare to Eat.
Being a busy professional you have many things that pull you in many different directions and you don’t always make the best decisions when it comes to food. It’s easy to get caught up a work and eat was is easy, or go to lunch with colleagues and eat things you shouldn’t. Planning and preparing can go a long way in helping you avoid those situations which will translate into a slimmer you very quickly.
How to Prepare Food on The Go: One solution is to pack whole foods on the go. Instead of going to the snack machine pack small Ziploc bags full of your favorite fruits, nuts and vegetables so that you can eat healthy and maintain blood sugar levels between meals.
Examples of quick healthy snacks:
Sugar snap peas
Water IS the Fountain of Youth and Feeling Fit.
With the wide variety of calorie laden drinks that are advertised to us and we have to choose from, water is usually overlooked. Our bodies, brain, muscle and bones are made up of water. 60% of Americans are walking around dehydrated and don’t even know it. Not drinking enough water can lead to metal fatigue and fogginess, constipation, poor digestion and even aggravate allergies.
How to Drink More Water Every Day: If you don’t like the taste of water you can add fruit or herbs like peppermint to give it taste without the extra calories.
Everyone CAN Make Time to Exercise. Yes, Even You.
Exercise is a great stress reliever it keeps you fit and it decreases your risk of chronic disease and depression. You should exercise at least 3-5 times a week and take time to rest and recover after working out.
Increase your quality of sleep
Increase your energy
Increase release of feel good hormones (endorphins)
How to Fit Exercise Into Your Busy Schedule: During your busy day you may not have time for a full workout but you can always incorporate exercise into your day by:
- Working out at your desk with resistance bands
- Getting up and stretching
- Taking the stairs instead of the elevator
- Walking during your lunch break
- Parking your car far away from the entrance to your grocery store/work place /school
Beauty Rest is Required.
You may think that you are too busy to sleep but don’t skimp on sleep. Sleep deprivation leads to fatigue, irritability, mood swings, sugar cravings, increased weight, and decrease memory. Tackle this problem by sticking to a healthy sleep schedule.
How to Get More Beauty Rest: An hour before bed find a way to wind down, whether it’s listening to music, journaling or sipping a cup of tea but don’t take you work to bed with you. Leave your cell phone and other electronic devices in another room. These devices stimulate your brain and decrease levels of melatonin a hormone that prepares your body to sleep.
