Hello everyone! Happy Sunday. I hope you all had a great week!
I know for me it was hard to get back to routine. I had such a great Easter weekend with family and friends.
(Saturday morning enjoying breakfast and coffee!)
This week I discovered a company called Oscar Insurance. I want to include the topic of de-stressing which was brought to my attention when examining this company. They want to help people like us create a more stress free time by fixing the health care process. They think having a healthy lifestyle is super important and provide their members a free Misfit band with the opportunity to earn back cash rewards when they meet their own goals. Also, they believe stress is a significant factor concerning our health and they want to help you! They have this Doctor On Call service where you can contact a doctor right through their app rather than having to make an appointment.
Stress is very unhealthy. It can affect your relationships, cause sleepless nights and affect your weight. However, most people don’t think of stress as a unhealthy habit. People don’t think of stress is a significant part of weight gain, acne, and depression. When I studied at The Institute For Integrative Nutrition it taught me that Stress is a significant part of a unhealthy lifestyle!
A healthy choice to consider as a way to de-stress can include eating a apple instead of candy as a snack or getting in exercise during your break instead of not taking one at all. Other examples of healthy ways to bring your stress level down could be drinking a cup of coffee or tea, taking a walk, or writing in your journal.
A weekend away with family and friends was a perfect way for me to de-stress. I got to see my family and long time friends, had others cook for me, got my nails done, and even got in some down time drinking warm beverages from a coffee mug made by my best friend! So much great therapy all in one weekend!
(Relaxation is key!)
What also helps me de-stress is making time to prep healthy food so I have it available to me when I need it during a busy work week. When I got back from my weekend in NH I didn’t have a lot of food prepared. I found time on Monday before work to prep my healthy pumpkin pancakes so that I had them available to me the rest of the week! This is a great way to become less stressed during a busy work week!
I have told you what works for me to become more stress free. If you think you may need some help on becoming more stress free I encourage you to contact Oscar Insuranceor simply try one of my techniques!
Although I had an amazing time with my family last weekend I was happy to relax and de stress this weekend.
More fun weekends will be here before I know it!
I hope you enjoy your Sunday and I will see you next week!
