What are you grateful for?

Two Minute Stress Reduction Technique

Emotional eating and lack of motivation to exercise can be caused by undue stress and negative thoughts.

Here is one of the best stress-reduction techniques there is. It is simple: Take two minutes and focus on what you're thankful for. Reflect on what you are grateful for, write a list or tell someone.

By making a list of things you're grateful for, you focus the brain on positive thoughts. You will be amazed at how much better you feel when you get in the habit of thankfulness. 

I hope that helps!
