Incorporating the way you treat your body is a lifestyle change. That means you should lose the mentality of “dieting” just to look good, and rather start loving your body in a way that goes beyond superficiality. Your body takes you through life every single day, so it’s important to treat it with the respect it deserves.
Do you have difficulty concentrating? Do you get chest pains or frequent aches all over your body? Perhaps you are overeating or under-eating? Then you may be overstressed, and it’s time to get help. Stress can put undo pressure on your heart and body, so managing it is extremely important. Talk to your doctor if you’re suffering from one or more of these symptoms.
