According to the World Health Organization more than 450 million people worldwide suffer from stress. Are you one of them?
Stress wreaks havoc on your mind and body. It’s just plain unhealthy and can lead to a myriad of problems including hormonal imbalance, cardiovascular disease, insomnia, diabetes, obesity, depression and other chronic illnesses. I believe years of stress contributed to my cancer diagnosis. And today, when I start feeling surges of stress and anxiety my body starts itching, my skin starts to blotch, and I lose my lack of concentration.
My way of dealing with stress is: hydrate, gyrate, masticate, meditate (drink water, exercise regularly, eat healthy foods and do not skip meals and relax through meditation and deep breathing). I do not believe in popping pills or drinking in excess to relieve stress and anxiety. I do believe in putting the right foods and beverages in your body.
On Monday April 6, on Fearless Fabulous You! I will address the health benefits of drinking tea with Dr. Nada Milosavljevic who is the first MD/Certified Tea Sommelier in the USA.
