Stress can lead to weight gain and if already overweight, can prevent weight loss! Stress comes in all forms: relationships, finances, work, even from lack of sleep.

A simple way to combat stress is to breathe! Try this simple exercise next time you feel stress coming on: take a deep breath in through your nose for a count of 4; exhale through your mouth for a count of 4 – repeat 4 times.

A sixteen second break from the world can make a huge difference – JUST BREATHE!
