Reduce Stress & Take Control of Your Life

Updated: Mar 7

In my practice as a wellness coach, I hear this often, "I eat well, avoiding junk, exercise 3-4 times a week but unable to manage my weight" OR "I am tired and fatigue through the day. I get injured often while exercising" OR "I am tired but unable to sleep well and wake up tired again".

We are all under stress all the time. Too much stress will make you feel overwhelmed, and this is when you’ll start to forget your healthy eating strategy and fitness regime and this becomes a vicious circle. Our thoughts play an important role in our wellbeing. It's important to recognise stress, address the causes and find solutions too.

The result of stress is likely to be weight gain. But, high levels of stress can also lead to other issues:

  • Headaches – often caused by your muscles being tense all the time.

  • Hyperventilation

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Reduced Sex Drive

  • Stomach Ulcers & many more Issues

Stress may have the ability to save your life, remember, not all stress is bad stress but too much is seriously bad for your health. So how do you reduce stress and take control?

Relieving Stress Through Fitness:

Exercise is an excellent way of improving your cardiovascular health, muscle strength, and of course, burning fat to lose weight.

But exercise also helps you to relieve your stress. The great thing is that it can be any exercise!

  1. Exercise Releases Endorphins

When you undertake any physical activity, your body will produce more endorphins. These are the chemicals that make you feel good and the reason why you feel so positive after exercise.If you feel good, you’re not likely to be stressed anymore, so even a quick workout can help. Students who do 20 min workouts (run, swim, cycle or skip) even during exams perform better.

2. Exercise Removes Tension

Exercising in the morning is the best. Mind & body is fresh and, you’ll forget about the stress of your other situations. Your mind will be clearer, and your tension levels will decrease.

You’ll find that it’s much easier to focus on what’s important and forget about the stress. Try going out for a short run - 30 min (even if you are not a runner) without any gadgets & observe how your day goes, how your thoughts change.

3. Exercise Builds Confidence

Exercise helps you to shed weight and feel more confident in your body as well as with dealing with difficult situations. You’ll trust your judgment more, and be better able to handle stressful situations, which will reduce your overall stress levels.
