Today’s discussion is vitally important, but one I wish we never needed to have. My guest is fitness trainer, author, and nutritionist Isabel De Los Rios, and she offers incredible advice about how to maintain your health when your world is turned upside-down by tragedy or loss. Isabel shares her own moving story of extreme stress, as well as practical steps you can take to maintain your physical and emotional health during the most difficult times. I had my own experience with high stress after my son Grant spent over 4 months in the ICU as the victim of a hit-and-run, and I can tell you firsthand how valuable this information is! You never know when high-stress times will happen, so it’s crucial to be prepared.
