>I had a revelation this week…stress hurts. I mean that it physically manifests as feeling tired/exhausted…sometimes I can barely keep my eyes open. I also tend to get headachy and my joints feel inflamed. It’s no wonder I am quick to put off exercise and turn to self-medicating with comfort foods or a glass of wine after work.

I have always known that I had issues with anxiety and stress but never realized how symptoms manifested.

What to do? I guess it’s just a matter of pushing through and continuing to eat healthy and get in my exercise. And can I just say, exercise, lately has been a confidence boost…when in other areas of my life I’m feeling A bit under-confident.
