There are a few people who know what is going on in my life right now. I'm going through some major stress... just like many other people.
For a while now people have been telling me to take care of me, to remember myself, to try and not worry about things. I just say, "Oh yeah...," laugh, and get back to running in a thousand directions.
But this article just stopped me in my tracks.
Yes, I know stress ages you, makes you fat, grumpy, and no fun to be around. All of this is bad...but still not enough to make me change. But this did:
WOMEN WHO REPORTED MAJOR STRESS IN ADULTHOOD HAD A 21% INCREASED RISK OF ALZHEIMER'S.
And...the more stress, the higher the risk. CLICK HERE to see that study
Major wake up call. This already is something that runs in my family.
So... now is time to run, walk, jog, yoga, relax, put myself first...whatever it takes to stress less.
For once... I need to not stress about stressing so much. And just STOP.
