STEP 1: Consider what’s really bothering you.
Sometimes it is hard to pinpoint the origin of your stress, but it is important to find that source of negative energy for you to be able to overcome it. When you begin to feel stressed, take a deep breath and ask yourself: “What is bothering me?”
STEP 2: If you don’t like something, change it.
There’s so much you can do, so don’t be disappointed when you find yourself unable to fix things. You must learn to focus on what you can do, rather than on what you can’t. Consider the things you can do to ease your stress and once you’re ready, follow through with them.
STEP 3: If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
Push away those negative thoughts; all they really bring is trouble. At times all you have to do to turn your day around is to think positively. Negative thoughts can often put a limit on your abilities, by changing the way you think you’ll see a drastic change on your daily performance, making tasks which once seem impossible much more reachable and less daunting.
When high-fat and high-calorie foods are consumed regularly, our brain’s ability to regulate hunger cues, and calorie intake gets reduced. A new study has shown evidence of how continuously eating a fatty diet seems to disrupt the neurological pathway between the brain and the gut.
The cells in charge of signaling the brain when we’ve had enough food are called astrocytes. According to new research published in The Journal of Physiology, calorie intake is regulated in the short term by astrocytes (large star-shaped cells in the brain that regulate many different functions of neurons in the brain). Astrocytes also control the signaling pathway between the brain and the gut, a path that can get interrupted by high calorie diets.
