Is Stress Making Your Stomach Bigger?

Posted By: Katherine Crawford on August 20, 2011 at 8:41 am

Not only does stress put you at risk for cancer, but it also promotes the storage of visceral fat. The type of fat that covers your internal organs and makes your stomach protrude.

And please realize that even if you don’t have a lot of fat underneath your skin, you could still be retaining a lot of fat inside your stomach because of stress.

So here is how to lower stress for accelerated fat loss:

1. Figure out your triggers: Keep a log of the specific events that cause your stress responses. I know this sounds simple, but most people do NOT do this. And keep in mind that memory is fickle because we are bombarded with too much information on a daily basis.

2. Act out: Now I’m not talking about going all out, instead let exercise vaporize whatever is bothering you. You see, our bodies are made to handle stress with exercise. In fact, it’s probably one of the best ways to deal with stress because it will also increase your physical health.

3. Take note of how you talk to yourself: If you find yourself using the following words, “never”, “always” and “should”, please stop. These types of words wreak havoc on your internal system. You see, they are very harsh on your cognitive health, so stay away from them.

4. Tap into your network, often: We are social beings, there is no doubt about it. And if you are accustomed to dealing with your problems on your own, it will be like pushing a boulder up a hill. Furthermore, studies have shown that socially isolated monkeys simple wander into the jungle alone to die.

5. Fill up your piggy bank: Doing so will help you prevent the biggest modern stressor of all: financial ruin. Too many people live lives full of fear and uncertainty because of money. By saving some day in and day out, you will buffer yourself against this stressor.

Stress should be taken very seriously. So if you are not practicing the above, please start implementing these strategies today, not tomorrow. After all, tomorrow usually never comes!
