As a general rule, thinking is a good thing, right? ;-)
But, some people overthink everything, and others don’t think enough… so how can you get the balance right?
Unfortunately, it is possible to think yourself into anxiety, frustration, and even illness. So, if you have the ability to make things that should be simple, complex; or a minor issue, a major drama, you could be damaging your health, and it’s time to stop.

Please welcome Kelsey Turek to the blog today. This is her first blog post on Dietriffic, and she has some really great tips on how to workout with no equipment.

However, I read a vast array of material, and try not to be overly swayed by one side or the other, and I simply cannot reconcile myself to the fact that certain foods are “safe” to consume regularly, despite what manufacturers tell me.

Research tells us that those who take regular exercise are healthier, have more energy, sleep better, think more clearly, have reduced levels of anxiety, perform better at work, and have delayed onset of conditions such as dementia.
In fact, most of us will admit to feeling a lot better after exercise, but it can still be extremely difficult to adopt it into our everyday lives.
