I never pressure anyone to change their diet during a period of stress. Instead, we work on limiting the effects of stress on their bodies and implementing some stress management tools.
From the experience of working with lot of my clients around stress, I’ve noticed that time perception is one of the main sources of stress.
There are a few tips that I found supportive for getting through stressful periods. All of them revolve around managing time and time perception.
– Manage your stress with your food. Toxic overload is one of the main sources of physical stress. The Food Focus Detox is a great way to regenerate yourself at a cellular and metabolic level. You will improve your stress resilience, and feel at your best.
– Avoid snacking – If you struggle to control what you eat, start to control when. Stick to eating three times a day, to save time, decrease digestive load and conserve energy.
– Make your convenient food healthy food – don’t expect that you will manage stress and food at the last minute: it is way too stressful.
– Practice breathing – Pause and reflect. Three times a day over three to five minutes, take the time to consciously breathe and observe your sense of calm and focus come back with practice.
– Increase your endorphins, get moving – No long session involved here. A short walk around the block at lunchtime to get fresh air, and natural light works wonder.
Remember that “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them” (Albert Einstein). So I invite you to practice, step by step by adjusting your diet and your lifestyle and experience stress resilience.
