So anyone else consistently thrown off track of working out and eating healthy as a result of stress? Especially relationship and emotional stress? I am normally a night owl but force myself to go to bed by ten or so each night so I can get up and workout. Yet on nights like tonight when I am thrown a curveball by people I care about, I can't sleep, I worry, etc. and then I end up not having the energy, etc the next day or two to workout and take care of myself. I know I shouldn't let other people's actions effect me or side track me but that is easier said than done. Just feeling very frustrated.

Its easy to worry but difficult not to..I wouldn't say stop worrying but find out what's bothering you the most and work on it. Never let anything that takes a toil on your emotions which will lead you to stress.

Eating more or less Sleeping too much or too little Isolating yourself from others Procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities

When I say work on it! Take one day at a time, your choices, relationships matters and don't let the externals affect you internally

Its better if you stop worrying, as things will happen accordingly and no one can stop it happening. So its better to be stressfree and be happy. If you are still facing the same then you should definitely visit

Make the gym you're go to place when you feel stressed. Sweat out the stress and treat it like a place you want to get to. If you don't get the sleep in night then plan an hour long nap after your gym session or some other time in the day. Workout with whatever energy you do have and soon you'll feel like there's not much lack of energy once you start working out. Our bodies are stronger than we think. It's all about the right frame of mind! Hope this helps :)

I'm the same. When stressed over something I can't sleep. At times when I get like this I do one of two things (1) I either go to the gym and sweat it out so hard that I exhaust myself, have a hot bath then chill on the bed listening to music. Most of the time I'll drift off (2) I skip the gym but refuse to feel guilty about it. Sometimes you just need to 'reset' your mind and body.

Even I feel that workouts are the best option to destress. A right amount of exercise can trigger your enzymes and you can get a relaxed sleep. Another soothing option is a therapeutic massage therapy in toronto ( ) . It really does alleviate the stress hormones and generate an inner feeling of wellbeing.

Hey Angela, I don't have any suggestions about how to prevent life from getting in the way of exercising.  I have the same problem as you and very few things help me get beyond it except maybe walking.  Usually i just chalk it up to a bad day and start fresh the next day.  Also, if someone constantly causes problems in your life, you may want to find more positive/less drama friends who lift you, not bring you down.

Yep, I know how this goes, I'm in the middle of a separation, and the games that go with it. All I can say is to keep your focus on being you, and stay true to that, who your are will always cone out, so why hide it? Do the things that you do, and attract the relationship rather than be attracted to a relationship. I'm done being who someone else wants me to be, ima be me, and pursue the things I've set my heart on, and if someone is chasing the same things, they are welcome to join in.

I, myself, stuggle with this issue a lot. Thank you for sharing.

First things first. In order to funtion properly, we need enough sleep. Set everything aside for now, solving your relationship conflict or worring about your diet, and make sure you got enough sleep. Give yourself enough compassion and know that everything will be ok. Well rested, prepare a good meal for yourself and go workout. Since you didn't get to do it in the morning, do it in the evening or the next day. Well rested, well fed, and feeling good, begin to explore how you can solve your relationship conflict constructively. You'll be better equiped for furtue mishaps, every time you take care of yourself now.
