A Fit Girl’s Journey: The Stress is Winning

2 thoughts on “A Fit Girl’s Journey: The Stress is Winning”

  1. Hi Marisol,
    What incredible times!
    congratulations on your fortitude to stay on track. As I continue my life journey and look back of how stress has affected my life, I can honestly say it has been a challenge not only as a person, but as a mother and a professional. I had to learn (by trail and error) how to handle my stress. I have found the following recommendations suitable and attainable…let me know what you think.
    1. Mediation is something you already do and something I would love to conquer;
    2. Deep breathing helps clear my thoughts and regroup;
    3. Exercise is wonderful, I try to walk at least a mile daily;
    4. Reaching out by far is to me the most important. Create a circle of close friends and closeness to family has been a amazing for me. I believe in the core of my heart that family loves us unconditionally and will always have their best interest for us;
    5. Laugh often as research has shown that it lowers cortisol-the stress hormone;
    6. Listen to music as it brings calmness and rhythm to our soles ;
    7. Be grateful, I have come to believe that when we are stressed we tend not to see our daily blessings…and we them everyday (big and small);
    8. Stay positive, which in times of stress is very challenging. Life has taught me that when we are positive we attract positive energy that is helpful to any situation…
    9. Claim all your needs and wants and have faith that they will come to pass.
    Wishing you a mountain of success, love and happiness!

    1. All of that sounds so good! It does seem like a lot to me, but if you can handle it, that’s awesome. Remember to take it one day at a time. Do you currently have resources for meditation? I do guided meditations by Rebekah Borucki on Youtube. She’s great, and provides quick meditations that you can fit into your morning routine.

      Keep me posted!
