Is Stress causing you to Gain Weight??

I was just talking to a mom this morning and she said that she was SO stressed she was worried it was making her gain weight –

Can you relate??

Being stressed can actually cause way more damage than just weight gain… It can actually cause physical symptoms too (from WebMD):

  • Low energy
  • Headaches
  • Upset stomach, including diarrhea, constipation, and nausea
  • Aches, pains, and tense muscles
  • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent colds and infections
  • Loss of sexual desire and/or ability
  • Nervousness and shaking, ringing in the ear, cold or sweaty hands and feet
  • Dry mouth and difficulty swallowing
  • Clenched jaw and grinding teeth

Is there anything we can do to reduce stress naturally?

Why I support Home Based Businesses

Can I be honest…

 

Okay, thanks.

 

I used to avoid buying from home based businesses (many of which were MLM’s as I would call them). I didn’t understand them… and what I was exposed to was lots and lots of really bad marketing that did more to turn me off than to get me interested.

 

This is so bad… but I remember there was a product I was interested in… and I searched for a way to order it so I wouldn’t have to order it through an MLM company. I also have to add that I’m a huge introvert and honestly try to avoid going to any party lol read more

The boy who changed the World

On February 14, 2016…. we had to say “See you later” to our special boy Josh, my nephew. Even though he had many limitations, he really did change so many lives during his 13 years on this earth.

He was born with a rare genetic disease that impacted all his motor control.

On the day he passed away, we were driving across the country to get to his side. It was the darkest day of my life.

So when we became parents… we had to decide should we still travel??? (or could we???) 

We didn’t have a lot of vacation days to work with, and we didn’t have a lot of disposable income either. But it really was something that we wanted to do more of and experience with our girls, it was a question of how we could do that. read more
