Weight Loss

Just breathe….

I'm a total stress head.  
Some of you will already know this about me. 
I actually stress about being stressed! Like many of us, 
I find it really hard to slow down and relax.  I hardly 
ever switch off.  
This means my sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive 
making it harder to lose weight.  
Now I know I'm not alone here. Most of you are probably 
stressed out right? How did your day start today? you 
rushed to get out the door for work, grabbed a coffee 
on the way and opened your laptop to 50 new emails you 
have no idea how to deal with.........or you maybe your
stressed out trying to get the kids out the door to 
school.  Ellie won't eat her breakfast, Ben doesn't want 
to go to school.  Your feeling knackered and it's only 9am.  
So here's what I want you to do today.  
Take 10 mins out, find somewhere quiet, sit down and just 
BREATHE
That's it.  
Allow yourself to do absolutely nothing for 10 mins. 
No checking emails or Facebook  (I'm going to 
struggle with this one) and breathe properly, 
from your diaphragm.  
I know some of you won't even know how to do this as 
most of us breathe from our chest which actually makes 
us more wired! Push your rib age down as you breathe in 
until you can see your stomach pushed out.  
If your like me and the thoughts will still be racing 
through your head.  Try and just observe them and let 
them go.  Don't try to resist.  Just 10 mins meditation 
can really help your energy levels.  
Now that was easy, wasn't it? 
Ok now here's the funny story.
I have no idea what I'm going to write to you for the 
next 30 days! 
But I figure that adding one new good habit a day will 
actually have a big impact on your overall health.
AND I've make a commitment to email though so you must 
keep me accountable.  If I can write an email everyday, 
you can manage one small change right? 
If I fail to send an email for the next 30 days, the 
fine is 30 burpees in class or you can decide the 
exercise.....
Until tomorrow....
