The holidays can become a stressful time, with places to go, presents to wrap and parties to plan. There are many studies and evidence that show stress has a negative effect on your body and your metabolism. Did you know when your body is under stress it produces cortisol, a hormone related to the fight or flight response. This increase in cortisol causes weight gain, decreased metabolism and even depression.

Learning to simplify your life and remember, you can’t do it all and perfection has a lot of unnecessary stress added to it.

TCOY this holiday season and don’t let stress get the better of you. Give yourself time to relax – for the Health of it!

Enjoy this !
