If you struggle to fall asleep, you might be thinking, "That ain't easy!" (and I would say you need to learn some power techniques.) If that is the case, I'd recommend my favorite sleep technique here.
You have probably heard a hundred times how when you are stressed out, the "fight or flight" response in your body is switched on. But how does that have anything to do with weight loss?
When you are under stress, your heart rate is faster as your heart sends blood to your muscles to give you the strength to fight or flee.
When all the blood is headed to your muscles for fight or flee, it means your other body functions are neglected: digestion slows down, so you do not digest and receive the nutrients you need from the food you have eaten.
And, the worst player in the stress mix, is that your body triggers your adrenal glands to produce more of the hormone cortisol.
Cortisol is a
big bad player in the weight loss world. Cortisol slows down fat
burning (which we want), and makes us go into a sugar burning mode. So,
the fat that is not being burned, where does it go? Yep. It gets stored.
And we are trying to get rid of our storage units, not add more.
So finding a way to reduce stress is high on the list. You might find this article helpful if you want to learn ways to manage stress
