How To Burn Fat By Resting

How To Burn Fat By Resting

Let’s talk about how to relax.

Why is this important? Among other fantastic benefits — when you are relaxed, you burn more fat.

When you’re stressed, you might do the opposite and hold the stubborn weight that doesn’t want to go away. According to case studies, when there is too much cortisol in our bodies (due to physiological or environmental stress), it often triggers fat accumulation.
While eating foods that are high in fiber, protein, and slow-releasing carbs can naturally increase our bodies’ ability to burn more fat, we can help the process significantly by merely slowing down.
When moving through life too fast, without taking enough breaks, we inevitably eat fast, which triggers a cortisol response, and diminishes our calorie-burning power.

Slowing down moves us from the fight-or-flight stress-state to the peaceful state of relaxation and inner calm.

Just by allowing yourself to relax more, you are likely to increase your metabolism and reach your fitness goals in a much more enjoyable way! 🙏🏼

Now it`s the perfect time to download my guide on chewing slowly: click here.

Not only that: the slower we eat, the faster we metabolize our food and the more sustained energy we have throughout the day.

The shortcut to turn off stress and activate a physiological relaxation response is conscious breathing. Conscious breathing simply means taking full deep breaths and holding them in for four counts before your exhale. Your nervous system will begin to calm down immediately.

You literally just have to breathe more deeply to switch on the parasympathetic nervous system. We have oxygen available to us 24/7, and it’s always available to use (thankfully!)

👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Here is an easy exercise you can try:

✔️ Write your top 3 stressors.
✔️Now create your top 3 relaxers.
✔️Ensure eating slowly and are chewing your food.
✔️One busier days, take some time to stretch, do gentle yoga, go for a walk, meditate, or take an Epsom salt bath/long shower.
✔️Initiate regular intimacy with someone you connect to on a deeper level.

Quality intimacy is, by far, one of the best stress relievers!

Regardless of what you choose to do – when in doubt, just take a break to breathe and relax.

Recognize Your Hunger Cues (Step-By-Step Guide)

Recognize Your Hunger Cues (Step-By-Step Guide)

Use these guidelines to learn how to honor your hunger and understand your fullness cues

If you want to build healthy habits around food, what you eat is only a tiny part of the big picture.

We also have to look at:

How do we “Honor Hunger”?

  • Tune into your internal signal that the body needs nourishment.
  • Recognize hunger – learn the signs.
  • Create an intuitive inner scale from 1-10.
    • 1 is just noticing hunger, 10 is starving
  • Start to plan for food when you are at a 2.

How do we “Honor Fullness”?

  • Create a fullness scale from 1-10.
    • 10 is stuffed, 1 is still starving
  • Aim for an 8 on the fullness scale – nourished and energized, satiated but not stuffed.

I suggest that your follow these guideline for at least 3 subsequent days and observe what happens!

How To Achieve Glowing Skin

How To Achieve Glowing Skin

Have you ever busted your head searching for supplements, “miracle” facials, or super expensive skin products that will give you the glowing skin you deserve? I know I have. And it didn`t wor.

Of course, what we put On our skin matters tremendously. I am a devoted proponent of regular exfoliating and high-quality serums. However: if our hormones are imbalanced, if we are chronically stressed, dehydrated and consuming too many processed foods that cause inflammation — you guessed it, even the most expensive products will stop working.

What made the biggest difference for my skin is stress management, combined with getting enough sleep and eating a variety of smart fats, antioxidant rich fruits, and greens.

Here is my formula. Easy to remember and very effective.

It spells S.K.I.N:

S. — schedule regular facials that promote cell renewal in your skin

K. — taKe vitamin A, D and K (essential for healthy skin and bones)

I. — intake happy thoughts and lower your stress with meditation and exercise

N. — nourish yourself daily with omega 3 rich foods, vegetables and antioxidants

Sounds pretty simple? It is. Yet, personally, It took me a couple of years to nail it down. Why? Simple doesn’t mean easy. I am here for you to help you brainstorm what in your lifestyle makes attaining glowing skin difficult.

Remember that every change first starts in our subconscious mind. 1) acceptance, 2) letting go and 3) trusting the process. These are the steps of every sustainable transformation. How we look externally is a direct manifestation of how we feel.


The motto of my work is that everyone deserves to look and feel great. 🌺👇🏻♥️
