🚫Stress: That Undetected Pesky Factor of Health…

capture_2017-01-08-10-08-06-1Stress…where do I begin??? Stress is known as the silent killer for a reason and that’s due to the fact many don’t realize how detrimental it can be on them, their loved ones and what stress can do to your health. It’s all around us and hard to escape at times, but reducing what we stress about could be life saving! For me and I’m still learning not stress certain things, because unfortunately…we can not control every aspect of life. I know, I would like to be able to do this too (you know control every aspect of my life), but life happens and stressing over things that’s out of our control only make things worst and takes a toll on our health.

Work, families, relationships…LIFE in general all are contributors of stress. And let say that you’re not alone and that many people have these same factors in their life. So, to how to make life a less stressful? Well finances is usually at the top of the stress list and another big factor that cause unnecessary stress. Bills and responsibilities…yes those pesky things and many of us have them too, so join the club and know you’re not alone. Now having bills don’t always have to be as stressful and when we learn to have our bills be less than what we bring in…that eliminate a lot of stress in it self. Bills should never be more than your “take home” income and if they are its time to re-evaluate things. Cutting back may not be what many want to do, but which is more important that extra unnecessary bill(s) or your peace of mind? I vote for having to stress less and a mind that is at ease.

Each household is different, so I can’t say what should stay and what needs to go for your life to be more peaceful…only you know how your wallet looks. I will however suggest taking time to write down all your bills and then looking at them to start the process of elimination. Oh yeas you can control what bills you have coming in, so grab a pen and paper and start to reevaluate things. Having extra money has never been a bad thing, so if it will bring you peace of mind and a few extra dollars I say do what’s needed to be done to help you stress less! Speaking of extra money my next blog will be on ways to make some much needed extra cash.

Then there’s the outside of your regular life stresses. Yes sometimes stress is all around us, but the key to stress is knowing what not to stress over. Work stress is another major factor that often invade our personal space and our inner peace. It can be hard I get it, but work is exactly that work and when you leave work…leave all of the work stress there too. Bringing your work home, or allowing the stresses of the day to eat away at you will only add to making your outside life more stressful. Again any of us need to work, so do your job with all the crazy things that may cone with and then when its time to leave work…leave work at work.

Unhealthy relationships are another factor of stress. These can be any types of relationships that’s not playing a positive roll in your life. If you have it stressing you out and not being productive…why are you allowing it to stress you? Knowing when to let go of what’s not good to or forvus is hard for many, but as I mentioned earlier stress plays a huge role on not only our mental. ..it also plays a huge role on our health. So, if you find any relationship that is becoming a toll on you it could be time to let it go.

The good thing about letting go of the stressful unhealthy relationships is that…you learn what you don’t want and then your able to build new healthy ones. Again any relationship that’s stressing you reevaluate whether or not if it’s necessary. Your overall health is why your making these necessary changes.

These were just some of the major causes of stress and I’m not saying that stress at some point won’t happen after making these changes, but changing what you’re stressing over now may help your health. Remember we’re on a new journey of a healthy lifestyle, so change will need to happen. I hope this blog was helpful and if you found it informative please share. Stress less and try to enjoy life as much as possible! Until next time…

Speaking of Healthy Bodies…what’s that???

capture_2017-01-08-10-37-20-1capture_2017-01-08-09-57-54-1So, not to confuse a person’s weight with what’s considered healty, but all bodies are products of how well maintained they are. You’ve heard the term “a product of the environment”? Well our bodies are no different than that term. Most of us know what we are suppose to be doing, but because we have become accustomed to an unhealthy way of living and that’s unfortunately been passed down for many of us from generations to generations. I’ve notice that breaking traditions is hard for many to do, I get that, but change can’t come without changing. Changing how you eat is just as important as changing one’s mindset. I like to think that they go hand in hand and that one can’t be as productive without the other. I don’t have any recipes to share at his very moment and,  I know what’s about to said is not what many want to read, but we have to leave that traditional type food alone! Yes it is very tasty and all, but is it HEALTHY to consume on a weekly or even in some cases a daily basis??? Understanding how certain foods actually takes longer periods for our digestive systems to process and break down those meats… is not an overnight process and as we get older that process becomes even less productive. So, I will post and share valuable information on how we can start this process of healing ourselves from within and getting our bodies back to a more healthier state…stay tuned!

Healthy Mind…Healthy Body

capture_2017-01-08-09-57-54-1The most important part of healthy living is having a healthy mind. Our minds is what gives us that outlook on life, so if your mind isn’t consumed with positive and healthy thoughts this affects your overall health. First, cleansing all negative things around you is the key. Whether it be doing a home makeover-decluttering, or just choosing your circle of friends wisely…it all starts with how we see things in our everyday life. There will be somethings that will take time to change, because our thoughts are powerful. But, with knowing this do what you can to help the start of your new beginning be a great one. Now on to the tips…my first suggestion would be to first declutter your domain. There’s no reason to have a bunch of things laying  around your home that you’re not using. Homeless shelters, animal shelters, and your local community centers will be more than thankful to take some of those old articles of clothing, shoes, and blankets off your hands! Not only will this make your home look and feel better, but you’re also doing a very positive thing by helping those who are less fortunate than you and that in itself makes for a more peaceful positive mindset.

Now here comes the hard part our toxic lifestyles and the individuals in it. How we live day to day is extremely important in becoming overall healthy. Often times we choose things that’s not in our best interest and this could be anything from the foods we eat to those we associate ourselves with…yes people can be toxic to a healthy lifestyle as well!  These individuals can be very close to you whether they’re family or friends, but not all relationships are healthy ones and meant to progress and thrive. While on this journey to a new beginning and a better you might mean that not everybody will be able to enjoy this ride with you. I wouldn’t say just cut people off cold turkey, but be selective in your dealings with individuals. Also, your time should be spent as productively as possible, so having distance between them and yourself can be a great thing.  This will allow you to put focus on what’s important in your life and what’s not. The key to creating a new you does not involve everyone around you. The more focus that is spent on re-discovering who you are and what you’re destined to be and do…the better the outcome is for you. Remember not all passengers enjoy road trips, so make sure you travel as lightly as possible!

In closing these are just a couple tips that will make for a better you! As we continue on and you start to re-evaluate what’s important and what’s not then more decluttering of your personal space will begin. Here’s you a new you and new beginning!
