Running from Stress

Last year I trained for my first marathon, quite an undertaking for someone who is overweight and leads a busy life. However, I found that the more I ran the lower my stress was. I was working crazy overtime, raising 2 small children, maintaining a relationship and running 10-15 hours per week, between 4 and 22 miles at a shot. I found that my Sunday 20-mile run wasn't leaving me exhausted for the work week. On the contrary, I was more alert at work and more energized with my family.

De-stress

Each day I make time to sit for at least 20 minutes in either silence or with soft music, clear my mind and listen to the silence. After that period of time I am relaxed and ready to take on whatever comes next. Oh yes, and I feel better physically as well. emoticon

Free MD. Consult

I found a great MD who is helping me with a nutritional program to help my body detox, cleanse, balance hormones, and nourish. She has offered FREE PHONE Consults. All she needs is you to email me your name so I can forward it to her assistant. Her assistant will contact you. If you provide a phone number she will call you to schedule an appointment. She has helped me to get back on my feet after being very ill. Now I have energy and improved strength. I posted about her in my blog.

Hand Sanitizer

Buy some small little hand sanitizers to keep around the house. Scented is good if you're not sensitive. I find it helps me to remember to use them more. Also keep them in your purse or on your keys with a keychain that you can get with them. I even get the small ones to leave around the workplace for coworkers to take. The less time that you're sick, the more time you have to get healthy and exercise!

Relaxation recordings for stress reduction

Besides exercise for stress reduction, I use relaxation recordings. You can find a lot off different ones based on your needs. I find that it helps turn the excessive churning of my brain when I worry.

Secret Beverage

When dining out or at home make, "water" your beverage of choice. When dining out you'll save on the overpriced soft drinks, coffee, etc., not to mention the excess calories. Also, if you ask, they'll serve your water with a slice of lemon or lime. Yum! No empty calories here, and water is just what your body needs.
