When it comes to your weight, there are many different factors at play other than diet and exercise. From financial budgets to busy schedules, there are all kinds of elements that may be shaping your journey with weight and health — even if you don’t realize it!

But have you ever considered that maybe stress might be one of them?

Like many other mental health conditions, stress can have a significant impact on an individual’s body weight. What we do and don’t do often reflects the way we feel, so it makes sense that our behaviors and habits are affected by what goes on inside of our brains.

The problem becomes increasingly difficult for those who suffer from chronic stress. Constant feelings of stress and anxiety can severely limit our ability to make healthy, everyday choices such as the decision to get up and exercise or the decision to go out and purchase healthy foods from the grocery store.

Sometimes, stress can even impact the physical body. Chronic stress experienced over a prolonged period of time can contribute to long-term problems for the heart and blood vessels. Our heart rate may rise, and elevated levels of stress hormones can lead to spikes in blood pressure. When you look at the bigger picture, it’s easy to see how stress can take a dangerous toll on the body and an individual’s weight management goals.

By finding ways to manage and alleviate stress, you’re also doing a lot of good for your journey with weight. Here are a few simple strategies you can try to set yourself up for long-lasting success.

Take the stress out of eating out at restaurants!  Find the best choices coast to coast featured on HealthyDiningFinder.com.  Here are just some of the dietitian picks to choose from:
