If you’re like millions of us in America, Great Britain, and Australia, you get stressed. You might not even think that you have a good enough reason to be stressed out. For example, you might just be trying to get a cheaper energy provider through someone like Simply Switch, it might be a simple thing to do. But still you get stressed. Getting stressed may often “make” you do such unhealthy things such as eat (or, more likely, overeat) processed carbs and sugary snacks and do other unhealthy things. Now there is nothing wrong with this, as long as you do the correct exercise to balance out all the unhealthy things that you have consumed. One way that you could exercise more is by doing Tennis Lessons, this mean that you’ll have someone helping to coach you through your exercise and you’ll be learning a new skill at the same time.

Today is the first in a series of blog posts in which I help you discover Simple Ways to Shut Down Stress. No need to rush anymore to processed carbs and sugary snacks to unwind, calm down and soothe you.

Now, let’s find out which stresses are now applicable for you.

Admittedly, the inspiration for writing about stress grew out of my own massive, seemingly endless, overpowering stress in the past four years, ever since I moved across country for my dying Mom; helplessly watched for a year while she lost the battle to lung cancer; moved several times (now for the fifth or sixth time); got walloped by carb cravings, overate carbs (which was initially quite embarrassing), gained 21 pounds (which I’ve now lost); recovered from PTSD, started a new life in another part of the country, etc.

Admittedly, I haven’t handled this persistent stress the best on many occasions, so I decided to get tips from fellow health experts on How to Shut Down Stress. I got many ideas from a number of amazing colleagues, who are active in the health and wellness Mindshare Summit Facebook Group, created by JJ Virgin, bestselling author of The Sugar Impact Diet, and most recently, Miracle Mindset: A Mother, Her Son, and Life’s Hard Lessons.

Now I’m stressed out (that’s a joke) about how to write about stress, because these fabulous health experts had so many ideas that I just couldn’t put all their tiips into one blog post.  Because they shared so many brilliant suggestions, I decided to turn this into a series of blog posts about stress.

To begin talking about stress, let’s turn to health psychologist and Stanford University Kelly McGonigal, who offers a revolutionary look about stress — that it’s not necessarily bad.

Thanks to Mindshare Summit colleague Dr Alan Christianson, author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Adrenal Reset Diet, who suggested that we look at stress in a different way.

“…maybe all you have to do is not be stressed about your stress,” Alan pointed out. “Those who see it as excitement seem to bypass the physiological damage.”

He then suggested that you and I watch  McGonigal’s 2013 TED talk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend,” which is one of the 20 Most Viewed TED talks of all time, with 10 million views. The author of the Upside of Stress points out that the goal is not to get rid of stress but to get better at understanding, embracing and using it.

"I blew my diet! Now what?" Does that sound like you? After your divorce, the death of a loved one or another trying time, did your eating get out of control for weeks, months or even years? Most of us have been there. Now I'm here to help you Rebound After Relapse™. Best of all, I totally "get" what it feels like to "lose" your willpower. That's because after my Mom died, I blew my diet bigtime for months, overate carbs and packed on 21 pounds -- this after eating cleanly for 14 years and even becoming the bestselling author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House). Stay tuned for my new, "I Blew My Diet! Now What?" Podcast and book.
