Walk Away from the Sugar

I used to be a sugar junkie, so I know how hard it is to give up all of the yummy treats. I learned that if I wanted to feel better I was going to have to.

Seems like during stressful times we often want to handle that stress with bowls of ice cream or bags of cookies. It's just really does a lot more harm than good.

Here are a few things to keep in mind about sugar:

·Vitamins and minerals can be stolen in attempt to process the sugar, and depletion of your B Vitamins.

· Cause Weight Gain

· Give You Fluctuating Blood Sugar

· Increase Mood Changes

· Increase Nervousness

· Increase Loss of Concentration

· Increase PMS

· Suppress the Immune System

· Increase Anxiety & Depression Symptoms

·Make you more prone to panic attacks & increase them if you are already suffering

During those times of stress what can you do to ease your immediate symptoms?

· Go for a quick walk

· Grab a healthy snack and more water

· Journal

· Do your breathing exercises

· Listen to calming music

So much of our hatching is about our habits.
