FACT: Stress is a normal part of life and sometimes it’s even good for you. 

But when it gets out of control it can affect not only your results … but also your sleep, your mood, and your health.

This is why it is so important to have a plan to help burn off your everyday stresses. 

Don’t believe me?

Just one reason: stress is the No. 1 reason people say they can’t sleep.

Your sleep matters, because while you’re getting your Zzzs, your body is actually hard at work, recovering, rebalancing, and refreshing. 

PLUS it’s also reactivating your immune system and flushing out metabolic waste from your brain! 

But stress does more than ruin your sleep. It can affect your appetite, lead to cravings, and also disrupt your immune, digestive, cardiovascular, and reproductive systems.

It can also give you headaches and lead to chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety.

This is why it’s SO IMPORTANT to have a (healthy) way to burn off stress every day.

There are so many great ways to do it:

  • Meditation
  • Regular exercise
  • Getting out in nature for some fresh air & sunshine
  • Journaling
  • Relaxing hobbies 
  • Having strong social connections

Today, I encourage you to take a few minutes to think about 1) how stress is affecting you and 2) the ways you currently manage stress in your life. 

At LyonStrong, we believe “it’s all connected. True fitness and wellness is a reflection of your overall health and happiness!”

Make it a great (low-stress!) day –
