I’m writing this article because I know stress! For years I haven’t taken care of me! I’m Divorced and a single mom, business owner and the head of the household.
We live in a busy world!
Are you stressed? Here is an example of a typical day. You have to get up at this time, get kids ready for school or daycare, make breakfast and lunches, oh and don’t forget to walk the dog and feed the animals. Then off to work you go and there are deadlines to meet and stress of trying to cram more in and get paid the same amount. Time to clock out and now errands, dinner, shopping, homework, household chores, activities and bills to pay. Weekend fun can even sometimes turn into a stressful event making sure everyone is happy and it’s not so expensive it depletes the savings account…oh wait, we don’t even have a savings account!
Stress is “fight or flight”. It’s a way to protect the body. However, if you are constantly in that stressed mode, like most of us are every day, it will threaten your immune system, and stress the hormones, adrenals, and cortisol levels in the body! It could cause anxiety, anger, depression, fatigue, sleep disorders, weight gain, and even inflammation in the body!
So why not take the challenge of taking care of “you” this year by stressing less?
What would your life be like if you were happier, healthier, and less frazzled?
