Every Cell in Your Body Hears What You Say
What do you say when people ask you how you're doing?
Do you say things like,
- "I'm slammed"
- "I'm super-busy"
- "I've got SO much on my plate"
- "I can't find any time for myself"
- "I'm like a chicken with my head cut off"
And do you then tell yourself, as you're rushing to and from Weight Watchers or the gym,"That's just the way it is. There's nothing I can do about it"?
I've got news for you:
If you are under chronic stress, you're going to struggle to lose weight.
- When you're stressed out, you're releasing stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, that cause your body to shore up every gram of fat to ensure your survival.
- When you're stressed out, your decision-making mechanisms are impaired, which means that chocolate cake looks awfully good to you, even though you know it's not.
- When you're stressed out, your cravings increase ~ I don't even need to say more about that, do I?
- When you're stressed out, you invariably need a break, which, combined with the faulty decision making per above, means you'll trade an ounce of pleasure for a pound of pain ~ literally.
Think about whatever it is that's stressing you out. Then ask yourself, "How important is it, really?"
