Women have been sharing with us how they feel for over 20 years now. Most of them want more energy, less stress, better sleep, weight loss, better mood and more hours in the day. We as women do so much. A lot of us find ourselves running between family and extracurricular activities and try to do for all. Add in a career to the mix and that doesn’t leave much time for you.
What’s amazing is a lot of these women have dreams of doing more. Giving of themselves is a big part of a lot of women’s lives. In this hurried pace of life one of the things that suffers is the quality of the food we eat. Too many bad fats and refined sugars are two of the most detrimental things we can eat for our health. Reduce bad fats in our diets and start using healthy oils such as Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and even Avocado Oil. If you’re hooked on the sugars, that can take a lot of will power to reduce. Look into some of the substitutes such as Stevia, Xylotol and even Agave.
Stress reduction also helps. Exercise reduces stress and is one of the single most important things we can do to reduce bad (LDL) cholesterol. Increasing Omega 3 consumption is essential. A glass of red wine or a piece of dark chocolate can also have a positive effect on our health.
Ladies! If you take anything away from this it should be that caring for yourself is not just for one month out of the year but a lifelong endeavor. Don’t let making changes create more stress. Take baby step, creating health is a journey.
