MYST 138 Stress Eating

Stress eating is a very common reaction to life’s stressors. It happens to almost everyone. It certainly happens to me! But how do we control stress eating?

The most basic method is to reduce the stress that is pushing us to eat. I realize that is easier said than done, but there are four common stressors–financial, health, family and career–and each can be handled. This is NOT an easy problem to correct, but ignoring it will not make the stress go away.

MYST 126: Why We Become Overweight

Being overweight–obese–fat–is caused by eating more calories than we burn. But that is a bit simplistic. There are many more factors that make our problem more difficult to fight. In this episode, part 1 of a 2 part show, we talk about the factors beyond the dinner plate that make our troubles worse. Part 2 will be a discussion of how to reduce the effect of these factors.

MYST 65: Find Some Peace

In this so very busy time of year, my most heartfelt wish is that you find a few minutes each day that are just for yourself. Find those minutes–steal them if you have to–and recharge your batteries so you can continue to support those who look to you.
