Stress Relievers

Sex can be a very effective stress reliever. Orgasm itself has many benefits. The sedative and relaxing effects of oxytocin and other endorphins released during orgasm may explain why people find it easy to fall asleep after intercourse. But sex doesn’t have to lead to orgasm in order to release stress: simply being intimate with your partner is sometimes all it takes to soothe and relax you. 

A chaotic home that’s crowded with possessions could be adding to your stress. Introduce calm by de-cluttering, especially in the bedroom. Your bedroom should be a peaceful haven for sleep, sex, and intimacy not a storeroom for piles of clothes, books, or old sports memorabilia. Clear out unnecessary clutter, move your laptop or television to another room, and bring in a few luxurious accents, such as scented candles, plush pillows, soft sheets,and dimmers.

Make time for exercise. Physical activity can increase the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.

Take your allotted vacation time. Make sure that you take all the accumulated days you are owed. Until next time……..

Fidget while you work

Did you know that you can increase your physical activity level without taking a single step. The Mayo Clinic has identified a link between being lean and how much you fidget, stand, sit, and recline throughout your typical day. In measuring the movements of 10 lean and 10 mildly obese volunteers, every half second for 24 hours a day, researchers found that the obese subjects sat for an average of two hours more a day than the lean subjects. They also found that the lean subjects racked up a lot of small movements from fidgeting, pacing, and standing, which burned up to an additional 350 calories a day. For three super easy ways to bump up your activity level and burn extra calories:

Stand when you can, sit rather than recline, fidget like there’s no one watching.

But there are those who consistently crave chocolate on a daily basis….does this ring home for any of you guys? Getting rid of cravings means getting the root cause of those food urges.
