Clears Your Mind. A good run or workout can help you clear your head and solve a few problems because of increased serotonin levels. Serotonin is the chemical in your body responsible for happiness, restful sleep, and a healthy appetite. Serotonin levels increase if you work out regularly leaving you with more energy and clearer thinking. Exercise is a natural anti-stress treatment, and way cheaper than therapy!

Now the 24 year old calls sunny California home where she enjoys Orange County’s beautiful beaches and surf. “It seems like the amount of choices you have for waves are endless. That being said, I have my eyes set on Hawaii for the future, maybe Bali or Costa Rica or the Galapagos too.” Jessica says.   Photo Courtesy of CSquared | Bikini Crocheted by Jessica McCoy When did you start making art and pursue Graphic and Textile design?

While this is a great habit, be sure to refill your water bottle throughout the day, or if you don’t get up that often, set an alarm to remind yourself to drink. Snack Right Sugary or sodium-laden snacks are (unfortunately) always available. Coming prepped to work with your own healthy snacks ready to go will make resisting temptation easier. In the morning, cut up some fresh fruit or veggies, or create one of these healthy snacks full of nuts for a dose of protein and omega-3s. Get Up and Out Something as short as a 10-minute break to rev up your …
