I’m thrilled to announce that my new web series, Stressipes, debuted on You Tube!
Stressipes (rhymes with recipes) are solutions for the negative ways stress affects what (and how much) you eat, how you move, how well and how much you sleep, and how you handle all the things in life that make you feel stressed.
Even if we think otherwise, we have the power to not let stress get the best of us, and adversely affect our habits. In the Stressipes web series, I will show you simple solutions using real food, exercises, and lifestyle strategies to help you survive and thrive despite whatever tries to bring you down or debilitate you, physically or mentally.
Here’s the link to Episode 1 of Stressipes on You Tube! I hope watching it gives you a laugh to help you destress!
To stay up to date on Stressipes, join my new Stressipes Facebook page and follow me on Twitter.
Have a great day!
