Recently I had a chat with a member who has a stressful job, long hours and a lot of responsibility.
In the past she admitted she thought she ‘never had time’ to go to the gym or do something for herself. She’s now and member and said to me…
“The time I spend here is the only time in the day that I don’t think about work.”
That might not seem like a big deal but if you are stressed out or on the verge of burn out
being able to switch off for an hour out of the day IS a game changer.
As well as this, studies have found that stress can contribute to more central fat (mid-section) and consequentially then affect your tolerance to stress too.
‘The current cross-sectional findings support the hypothesis that stress-induced cortisol secretion may contribute to central fat and demonstrate a link between psychological stress and risk for disease.’
So if you feel like you’re stuck in a stress tornado, maybe you are… but there are so many ways exercise and healthy eating habits can help you take steps to change that.
