Learn about conscious mental relaxation and
its importance to weight loss
"Just relax." Easier said than done, right? Several products help me to achieve conscious mental relaxation quickly and easily. I'll share them with you here.
Relaxation is key not only to overall health, but also to weight loss. There is a well-established connection between stress and weight gain. Stress also reduces your body's ability to burn calories.
Relaxation is especially important while you're eating. If you eat when you're rushed or stressed, it shuts down digestion and greatly diminishes your ability to absorb vital nutrients. AND your body won't "register" that you've eaten, so you're more likely to overeat.
So relaxation is key to keeping your metabolism in tip-top shape.
