Did you finish the conversation feeling empowered and energized? If not, that person may have to go. Your relationships aren’t going to be perfect but they need to end if they’re unconstructive. It may be hard to distance yourself from the people you love but who you allow in your space is essential. Being surrounded by Negative Nacys could affect your mental and physical health and could cause weight gain. Sometimes one negative word from someone you love can mess with your head and cause you to see yourself differently. There are people that have a distorted body image and pick themselves apart because of someone else’s opinion. A negative body image can result in restrictive eating and over exercising opening the door to eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive eating.

We are all guilty of keeping people around past their expiration date. Negative relationships and environments can cause unneeded stress in your life. Stress can set in motion a chain reaction of events that can end with unwanted pounds and inches. Your body releases a stress hormone called cortisol which causes you to store extra fat especially in the abdominal area and slows down your metabolism. Being stressed can cause weight gain and sleepless nights and you have to understand that no one is worth that. Protect your peace.

Kontrol To-Go: One of the best ways to improve your mood and to manage stress is to exercise. Exercising helps flush the stress hormone cortisol out of your system and makes your blood circulate more quickly.
