Stressed out, worried about something, have high anxiety, nervous about an event? All of these things can lead to weight gain. When we are stress our bodies by worrying or being nervous we cause our bodies to build cortisol. What is cortisol? Cortisol is the “stress hormone.” When your body has to much cortisol there is a loss of muscle and we gain more belly fat.
The definition of anxious is: experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
What does the bible tell us about being anxious? Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV) states, “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Any and everything that is stressing us out, we need to prayer about and leave it with God so we can receive His peace.
