Is Stress Stealing Your Joy?
When your body goes into stress mode day in and day out, it takes a toll on your body, not only causing weight gain and stealing your sex hormones, but often disturbing your brain chemistry, thus robbing you of a vibrant, healthy life.
2 of the best stress fighters are exercise and sex. The irony is, we rarely feel like participating in these activities while under stress. You won't resolve stress by trying to eliminate it, but you can counter the fight-or-flight effect by achieving the relaxation response-a state known for enhancing the brain chemistry associated with pleasure and performance.
