Clean eating and self-respect
To me, self-respect is a vital aspect of relieving stress. Because unhealthy eating habits might tempt me away from respecting myself due to not feeling good in my body. Let’s be clear here : I am not talking about being overweight or obese. Basically, I need to keep my body physically strong to reduce stress and to improve my energy. Here’s how i maintain my body stress-free with clean eating diet.
Loss and grief we need to cope with…
I was 6 when i lost my parents. Indeed, they weren’t dead but since they were divorced i ended up going down beceuse i was taken to an orphanage. I have been missing so much my parents but i was terribly missing my grandmother. She was more than a grandmother for me.
Time was difficult in orphanage. I started to wet my bed, cry every day -even all day -and night because loosing someone is stressful. However, i was hoping that perhaps someone could come to take me home but it never happened. There were pain, memories and unanswered questions, … I even felt that i’ll never be the same – that i’ll never laugh or be whole again-. My sorrow was so great that i thought i would die but it never happened too.
A pet needs a stress free life. That is true.
That’s true. When thinking of ways to reduce stress in life, some of us think about owning a pet. This is a great technique, to be sure. They do provide excellent social support and unconditional love, improve your mood, stave off loneliness , reduce stress yet they are a good listener.
But have you ever think about your little friend ? Does he/she feel stressed time to time ?
Even though having a pet is pure happiness, it’s a big responsibility and sometimes it might be stressing. To me, just feeding them, cleaning their litter, taking them to vet or loving them is not enough.
I have been thinking about my cats’ psychology since i moved from New Caledonia to France. They hand to leave a wonderful climate and a huge garden where they used to enjoy in nature, they had to change their daily habits such as hunting, climbing up the coconut palms, doing their business anywhere outside,…
Diet can reduce the physical symptoms of stress?
Stress is a part of life and affects us not only emotionaly but also physicaly.
Indeed, no part of our body is immune. However, because everyone handles stress differently, symptoms can vary.
I have been struggling with some of physical symptoms of stress such as low energy, headaches, including constipation, insomnia,…
While i was looking for a solution i’ve recognized that those physical symptoms may turn out to be a strength. All i had to do was improve my diet and boost my energy by juicing. That’s why i gave juicing a try !
I realized that drinking fresh vegetable juice is a shock to my body in a good way! Ever since, the “juicing” is a part of my diet i observed significant changes in my body. That means that the juicing became my stressegy to reduce the physical symptoms of stress.
Summer destination is looked for ?
Summer destination… The time that we want to find the best spot to escape. waves, sand, palm trees and fresh air or or just a little space to to put ourselves together.
Sometimes, all we need a little space to escape from our daily routine.
But… When ? For me the best time is when the city is getting smaller then usual which means there’s no specific date. Where ? Anywhere in the world.
Recently i was in Sardinia Island/Italy where i spent ten days in nature. Since the summer is around the corner Sardinia Islan it might be a wonderful destination.
If you are looking for best spot for your summer destination that place is recommended.
I booked a vintage campervan, got my backpack-which is quite small-, camera, tripod and nothing more. I promised myself to be in the moment while i was exploring that destination.
