Today (December 18) is the Fourth Week of Advent, for those who celebrate.
Today is also the beginning of Hanukkah, for those who celebrate.
Beginning next week, December 25 through January 5, we will post daily on this blog, one post for each of The Twelve Days of Christmas!
Goals/Objectives: To lower blood sugar through minimizing stress and anxiety.
Time Frame: Ongoing.
In my own experience, as well as observing that of others, stress is the Number One non-food cause of high blood sugar! It doesn’t matter if the stress is good (like a wedding, a vacation, or the birth of a grandchild) or bad (losing a job, a family member, or property). Your body doesn’t know the difference!
Both research and experience clearly demonstrate that stress (good or bad) can raise your blood sugar! Evaluate what might be causing stress in your life, either good stress or bad stress, and consider ways that you can deal with it.
