Perhaps the most important factor for maintaining a sustainable body is stress management. Prolonged stress can collapse the immune system, and that’s when we get sick. Make a commitment to manage your stress. The best way is to Nurture Healthy Thoughts & Beliefs, Live in the Moment, & Believe in Love. You can start a daily meditation practice… maybe just before you go to sleep at night, or first thing waking up in the morning. Meditation is when you sit quietly, slow your breathing, and stop thinking about things. Focus only on the love in your heart. You can actually practice this all day long. If you’re feeling stressed during the day, try this: Put a confident smile on your face. Inhale 1-2-3. Keep smiling. Exhale 1-2-3-4-5! Repeat as necessary, and before you know it, you’ll forget what you were even worried about. Remember: Happiness is a choice. Sometimes it’s easy to be happy. Sometimes it takes work, but the choice is always ours. No one can make you stop living joyously in the moment but you.
