Next, swapping our your sugars (especially added sugars) for healthy fats can be a big win. This is as simple as replacing that afternoon sweet tooth craving with your favorite nuts or avocado slices. Why do we do this? Sugar fuels disease, affects blood sugar and mood negatively, and is the culprit for so many aches and pains in our physical body. Omitting it is GREAT and replacing it with a whole food fat will add energy & protein to our routine.
Plan ahead to make sure that you are getting protein at every meal!
Intentionally reducing your stress levels will give your endocrine system support so that it's not over taxed. We all have stressors in our life—most being things we can’t control—but how we manage stress is key! Unwinding at night with an epsom salt bath, spending time outdoors, or inhaling your favorite essential oil can help the stress leave your body.
Lastly, getting enough sleep each day will help your body tremendously. The recommended 8 hours of sleep at night allows the body time to repair and restore, which will in turn support your endocrine health.
