When you think about health and wellness, you probably think about calories and exercise but you may not think about STRESS! Did you know that stress and anxiety is the arch enemy of everything good you are trying to accomplish in your body? You need to put effort into eating and moving well, but also make it a priority to avoid stress will all of your might!
Let’s focus on the things that we can control and how we can create an environment of peace instead of a place that welcomes chaos or negativity. One way that we can do that is to wake up with a thankful heart. Spending some time in prayer or simply thinking about how thankful we are for the life we have elevates our perspective and sets us up to win before our feet even touch the ground. Let’s make a goal of picking something we are thankful for every morning.
Something else you can control that makes a huge difference…Bringing order to your space! Clutter welcomes an atmosphere of chaos. Messiness makes stressiness. TRUTH. Whether it be in your house OR in your workspace, everything feels better when clutter isn’t pressing in on you.
Things are going to happen every day that throw us for a loop. Our emotions love to run rampant at any given moment, so how can we react in a healthier way to our surroundings when we want to lash out, burst into tears, or punch someone in the face? JUST BREATHE.
