Stress or Passion, What is it to Be?



“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.” Simon Sinek

I was watching a very short video clip of Simon Sinek being interviewed. This quote touched on a subject that is dear to my heart.

Yea yea I hear ya. Stress is a boring subject!! YES it bores into your very being. It stops your health in its tracks. It stops your weight loss in its tracks. And if it goes on long enough, it will stop you in your tracks!

The worst thing is we don’t always know what is causing our stress, because it doesn’t have to be a major deal!  It can be insidious day to day happenings, leaving us feeling anxious and we don’t always understand why.

But you know what one of the worst stressors for a lot of us is? The lies we tell ourselves over and over. That we’re not good enough, that we don’t have what it takes, that we’re too young, too old too….. fill in the blank. The great thing about this is, we are the ones responsible for doing that, so we are the ones who can be responsible for changing it. What can you do today to change 1 little thing?

One small thing I did, was to change what I eat for breakfast each day – according to what my biology needs to reduce one form of stress.

Enjoy listening to what your body needs!
