2022 Has Been a Tough Year for Investors – Overcoming the Physical Toll of Stress

Stress is depleting us and taking away our ability to make the most out of our bodies for the rest of our lives.

  • Breathing dictates everything in your life. It dictates how your day goes and it dictates how you process events and regulate your emotions. We breathe 22,000 times a day.
  • Much of your health boils down to the shape of your lower back. It is what carries you throughout your life.
  • Before pushing your body too hard in doing high-intensity training, you must first build a base for your body. You have to strengthen your aerobic zone and master how you get oxygen in and out of your body.
