Join Alan as he talks with Alana Kessler - MS, RDN E-RYT, Founder of Be Well by Alana Kessler, about a new disorder called election stress disorder and that combined with the stress from the coronavirus people are at an all time high and that having a meditative mindest all day is more effective than meditating for just 30 minutes a day. Alana talks about turning towards stress and confronting it rather than trying to avoid it so that we don’t develop unhealthy coping habits like alcohol or eating bad food. Alan talks about how a lot of successful entrepreneurs don’t have good health and are not in good shape because they worked themselves too hard. Alan asks Alana to advise him as if he was one of her clients. Alana makes him point out healthy things that brings him joy in his life and how he can focus on them instead of eating bad.

Next they talk about how people use food to mask feelings and to not deal with problems and that sometimes we have past traumas that we didn’t deal with and this can lead to eating disorders. Lastly, Alana offers useful steps and strategies for keeping goals and creating consistent health habits to feel good.
