  2. 2. What is Stress???  A force that causes change in your life.
  3. 3. Remember…  Stress comes in 3 dimensions and can be positive or negative.
  4. 4. The 3 Dimensions of Stress Physical Biochemical Psychologica l
  5. 5. Positive Biochemical Stress Examples <ul><li>Staying Properly Hydrated </li></ul><ul><li>Eating Well-balanced Meals </li></ul><ul><li>Taking Daily Vitamins </li></ul><ul><li>Eating Proper Portions </li></ul><ul><li>Breathing Clean Air </li></ul><ul><li> Using Organic Products When Possible </li></ul>
  6. 6. Negative Biochemical Stress Examples <ul><li>Not Drinking Enough Water (and just because Cola is mostly water, it doesn’t qualify!) </li></ul><ul><li>Eating Fried and Greasy Foods </li></ul><ul><li>Ingesting Preservatives and Pesticides (which many non-organic foods have in them) </li></ul><ul><li>Breathing Polluted Air </li></ul><ul><li>Dietary Intake Deficient in Important Vitamins and Minerals </li></ul><ul><li>Fast Foods, Refined Sugar, Salt Overdose </li></ul><ul><li> Not Eating Enough Fruits and Vegetables </li></ul>
  7. 7. To Increase Positive Biochemical Stress… <ul><li> Take quality daily multi-vitamin supplements. </li></ul><ul><li> Drink enough water (1 quart for every 50 pounds of body weight). </li></ul><ul><li> Eat healthy as a lifestyle choice rather than go on extreme or fad diets. </li></ul><ul><li> If you are not sure what to do or how to get started, let us help you or recommend a dietician/nutritionist. </li></ul>
  8. 8. To Reduce Negative Biochemical Stress… <ul><li>Be conscious of your portion size! On a scale of 1-10, if being stuffed is a 10, eat to a 7. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t microwave foods in plastics or cover them in plastic. This may release dioxin chemicals which can cause cancer.

  9. 9. Consistency is Key <ul><li>Your habits, not what you do occasionally, determine your outcomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Starting to eat right is the hardest part. Once you get healthier, it will feel bad to eat bad. </li></ul><ul><li>If you must, have a “cheat day” where you limit indulging in those less-than-healthy foods to one day a week. This way you can “hold-out” for that day. </li></ul><ul><li> If there are some unhealthy things you find you just can’t give up yet, make sure you couple them with things that are healthy, i.e., if you must have something that is fried, make sure you have something raw and healthy like a green salad or a piece of fruit. </li></ul>
  10. 10.
