Can you afford NOT to be stressed?
In a city full of beautiful women marching down the busy streets, I can’t help to look around and think that somehow we all wear masks. We tell people we’re fine when deep down we’re not. We’re stressed about our careers, our love lives (or lack thereof), the kids, the digestive issues, and our weight and of course money. We’d love to just snap out of it but our bank accounts just don’t permit it. We want to give up at times, dream of the vacation we wish we could have but it has to go right back to it’s trusty place…the back burner.
Which begs the question:
What happens when you can’t afford not to be stressed?
It almost seems as though being stress-free is expensive.
To eat well and relieve stress on the body you have to buy far-out hippie, “superfoods” that cost $10 for a bag of dried berries. Or we’re told we have to deprive ourselves of all of life’s pleasures - not the case.
To get your endorphins going or to calm the mind, you have to go to a gym, sweat and trim your body and your bank account.
To have a love life, you have to have enough money to afford to be social, get out there and meet people just to try to get some sort of satisfaction.
It is our birthright to be happy and to find affordable ways to get over the stress. It’s a misconception that eating healthy has to cost a lot of money and truthfully the term superfoods is even more played out than Gangnam Style. And you can ask any of my patients if they’ve ever felt deprived on their food plans and they’d adamantly say, “No way.”
Does this healthy cookie dough recipe look like you’d be depriving yourself?
