MOTRwell: Coping with Stress
In times of stress, our cortisol levels and our blood sugar levels are both impacted, which makes us want to grab for a sugary treat or a simple carbohydrate. Coach Sarah helps us "expand our menu" during times of stress.
What activities can you do to replace that emotional eating? Sarah introduces the concept of a nurture menu — options you can turn to to help you reduce stress and avoid food cravings. Some examples may be to take a warm bath, to go for a walk, or to drink your favorite tea. In our expanded content for members, we have an entire list to help you make your own nurture menu. Contact your local owner for more information.
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips regarding running, fitness and health. Today's training tip is let's support each other. In this era of virtual training and cancelled and postponed races, we wanted to provide something fun you can do solo or with your family and, at the same time, support our Moms on the Run family.
If you would have told us a couple months ago that all of our races would be cancelled or postponed, we would have thought you were crazy, right? One fun thing you can do right now is register for a virtual run, and we have a great one at Moms on the Run. We are calling it Your Place, Your Pace, and it starts this weekend.
