Sugar is a major factor in weight gain, premature ageing, and inflammation. That alone is bad. But add mental tensions, frustrations, and insecurity and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
When you’re feeling stressed, you usually crave sugar because your body is looking for quick energy. That’s a double whammy for weight gain and creating poor health!
So what kind of damage does stress do to your body?
Hormones are released that cause blood vessels to shrink, which reduce circulation.
Cortisol, a stress hormone, is released by your adrenals, and that causes abdominal weight gain. Your heart works harder, breathing becomes more shallow and rapid; digestion slows.
In fact, nearly every body process is degraded.
Yep, stress kills. Studies show that stress factors can cause migraines, hypertension, depression, and some peptic ulcers. Researchers estimate that 80% of disease is stress-related.
In this fast-paced, competitive world, it’s extremely important to break the destructive cycle of old stress patterns.
Massage is good for you emotionally and physically. It makes you feel good, chronically tight muscles are released so blood can flow normally, allowing your tight neck, shoulders, and back to move easily again.
This invaluable therapy also gives you a sense of wholeness and balance within your body. That translates to greater mental clarity and calm for you in your everyday life.
Include monthly massage sessions as part of your wellness plan.
