We all love a good bliss ball, but did you know that you could be adding some incredible ingredients to that can help to reduce your stress and bring the bliss back into bliss balls?
Stress and anxiety is in running high in 2020, which is why I created these ‘Calm Bliss Balls’. When things begin to feel overwhelming, we often stress-eat to give ourselves a sense of stability and a burst of comfort. So we will go for the foods that bring us this joy, such as a block of chocolate or coffee. Yes, these foods would give me a sense of feeling better, but it would wear off quickly, making me reach more comfort food. They were here for a quickie, not the long haul.
