Week 5 Fitness Changes: Finding Your Serenity Spot and Moment

by Anna D

There is no doubt that stress has been dubbed as the silent killer because it has been found to cause or speed up the development of certain illnesses. If left unchecked, stress can result to overeating, high-intensity cravings, depression, anxiety, and more. No matter how we look at it, stress does not result to anything good.

This week’s fitness challenge video discusses ways we can reduce stress and the benefits we can get from finding more balance. Press play to start…

Your Own Serenity Spot

As you can see, stress relief does not happen by chance but it is so easy to create in your work or living space. Even envisioning a serene moment in your mind can relieve stress.

Taking 5 minutes of your time a few times everyday can make a huge difference in how you feel, your food choices, and whether or not you will workout that day. Sometimes, it’s as easy as looking out your window and watching the birds play or hear them sing. When we have our stress levels in check instead of it taking over our life, many wonderful things can happen.

So, what will you do different this week to become more relaxed?

Stress… the story of my last three years. It’s very exhausting and makes it harder to motivate to exercise and eat right. I always feel better when I push through the stress exhaustion and get a workout done!

@Gurpreet I found one at bedbathandbeyond.com. I’ll let you know if it turns out good.

@Maile Exercise is definitely a stress reliever. You always feel energized after a great workout!
