My goal this Christmas is to look after my energy in new and restorative ways.
I still will be spoiling my family with gifts and get togethers.
I will still serve an amazing Christmas Day Paleo feast.
I will still go to a few parties.
In fact, I don’t plan on missing out on any of the good stuff this year …. but I am planning on missing out on a whole bucket load of extra stress.
This year more than ever, approaching Christmas needs to be done in a way that will enrich me and not drain me.
How about you?
Want to know how I intend to achieve that? Well, read on!
A lot of us feel a bit of panic or apprehension as soon as we see the Christmas decorations go up in the shopping centers. Especially when they go up before Halloween!
We are booking things in ahead of time, appointments, planning parties or events, thinking about our future goals like study, new job, etc. When this becomes a habitual way of thinking, we spend most of our time in the future instead of in the present. This makes it seem like time is moving faster than it really is, and also creates a stress response in our body that triggers cortisol and adrenaline.
Thinking about the future can cause worry, concern, pressure – and these thoughts trigger our autonomic nervous system into fight/flight/freeze mode.
Our thoughts directly impact our hormones.
Join Stephanie Watts later today on our Facebook Page because she is going to share our top 3 tips for managing this, resulting in lower adrenaline, better dopamine, happier serotonin, and a more balanced YOU!

Food Choices and Your HORMONES
Did you know that eating the wrong foods for you can affect your hormones BIG TIME?
If you are eating foods that trigger inflammation, this leads to issues including (but not limited to);
- Fatigue, sluggishness, lethargy
- Drops in energy, shakiness, headaches
- Menstrual irregularities
- Insulin resistance
- Active thyroid hormone resistance
- Leptin dominance
- Disrupted sleep patterns affecting waking energy and healing capacity
- Weight loss or gain
- Mental fog
If you have an autoimmune disease, the wrong foods can have much more dire consequences, drive antibodies, and deteriorate the glands;
- Heart rate changes, palpitation, tachycardia
- Shakiness and sweating
- Feeling wired and tired
- Brittle hair and nails
- Patches of hair loss
This Christmas, we can help you understand the effects that foods have on you so you can control your health with more awareness and science based food choices based on your own blood pathology.
And that takes one big stressor out of the equation, leading to a healthier December, less belly aches, and happier hormones!
