Episode Summary

Today is a very special day as we celebrate the 2 -year anniversary of the Essentially You Podcast. I am so grateful for this platform to bring you what you want from top experts in the field, and I can’t wait to see where the next year brings us. Today we are living in a very different world than we were last year, or even last month, which is why I want to provide you with ways that you can reduce your levels of stress, boost your immune system and stay focused on keeping yourself and your family healthy. 

In this unprecedented time, many of us are justifiably scared or worried. However, we need to focus on instant wins to avoid falling into the addictive stress response patterns and instead find solutions that provide relief, reduce stress, stop sleeplessness and sugar cravings, and decrease your brain fog. 

When you are able to take a deep dive into understanding how stress impacts your immune, reproductive and digestive systems, you can find solutions to help get you out of that constant state of chronic stress. I share safety signals that you can use throughout the day to stop yourself from being instantly triggered, and a morning and evening ritual I call ‘Power of the Pause.’ I will show you how to actively reduce your stress response system today.

I am here to support you throughout these uncertain times and my goal is to provide you with ways to fight the stressors that plague your body. Let’s improve your immune system and balance your mood so that you can move your body from a stress state to a state of relaxation. 

Are you ready to combat your worries by implementing my simple protocols to protect your immune system and avoid chronic stress? Share how you are keeping your cool during this crazy time with us in the comments below!
