Reducing Stress in a Stress-Filled Life

Christine Cronau talks about stress in her book, The Fat Revolution. She tells how chronic stress releases too much of our stress hormone, cortisol, in response to all the stresses of our lives. Having a permanently elevated level of cortisol is likely to do a great deal of damage to our bodies and our minds.

Christine says, "I actually don't like discomfort and I listen to my body. If something is super hard, I don't do it."

So, today, I am thinking how I can slow down, how I can enjoy the moments, how I can let things go.

I found this article to be a totally sensible outline for stress management.

I'm off to have a nanna-nap!
