01 Jan Tip 28- End the Year Strong (Part 2)
Lose the bloat tip: Cut back on carbohydrates. For every gram of carbs you eat, your body will “hold onto” 2 grams of water. If you cut back on bread, pasta and pastries your body will naturally get rid of excess water weight.
Stress management tip: Breathe better. When stressed, the first place to be affected is your respiratory system. Your breathing gets shallow and sometimes rapid. To prevent this practice belly breathing: Place one hand on your stomach; on the inhale the stomach goes out and on the exhale it flattens. Within seconds of breathing like this you will lower your blood pressure, slow your heart rate and stop the stress-reaction cycle.
