Wellness Wednesday: Take Some Pressure Off


Happy Wellness Wednesday to you all. It is funny I have trained a lot of people over the years and one thing remains essential to losing weight or becoming a better athlete and that is decreasing stress. Pressure to eat a certain way or train a certain way can all result in underlying stress that quite frankly we don’t need. I have always said that wellness starts on the inside. You can have the best diet or exercise routine in the world, and yes you may see the pounds fly off. It is possible that you make become faster and stronger, but what have you gained if you are still miserable on the inside. Encouragement from others can be great, but sometimes pressure from outside sources is not always the best. Find what works for you, and if you are working with a trainer or physician, make sure you voice your opinion on what your likes and dislikes are. It is common to become frustrated while on this journey to wellness, but trust me it will all be worth it in the end. Take some of the pressure of yourself. Make it a joyful journey, not a stressful one.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
