Did you know stress contributes to excessive weight gain?
A few months ago, I was doing everything I normally would; I ate healthy, was consistent with my workout regimen, and despite all my efforts- I was still gaining weight.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t all its thought out to be. It’s easy to think entrepreneurs just lunch by the pool and hangout with friends all day! Instead, I relate it more to having a new born-which is why I have such a connection with being overwhelmed like you mommies. Ladies, Vannabelt is my baby!
How to survive this stress? Allow yourself to live a little! Some people in the industry will tell you, “stay away from alcohol. ” I’m realistic about life and sometimes you just need a glass of wine to help you wind down. It hurts us more to be and stay overly stressed! Part of my regimen to a happier, stress free life is a night in- with a glass of wine and a tub full of bubbles.
Another contributor to my stress is working hard at the gym and eating healthy, but my body being non responsive to my efforts. This is why I always mention helping yourself out with regimens like exfoliating. Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for skin care products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective.
After exfoliation, I cap off with Gel-V Hot to help reach the areas that are unresponsive and well; wake them up with nature based ingredients while I sleep! I promise, adding this into your daily to-do will make sure you don’t feel any guilt after that much needed glass of wine!
