Pssstttt: Have you heard of The Less Stressed Life? I created it FOR YOU to help you minimize the overall stress and inflammation in life, whether it's food-related, emotional or spiritual. Topics include getting stuff done, reducing inflammation, sleep, gut health, food sensitivities, integrative nutrition, lifestyle medicine, relationships, friendships, relaxation, life hacks and of course, kitchen ninja tricks. Anything that helps you sit in the driver’s seat of your own happiness and less stress is fair game. After my first year of lifestyle & health coaching, I became an accidental life coach, realizing "it" is about more than just food. There's so many pieces to living our best life. I want to curate those tools and practices for you. Let’s do this.

I love listening to Christa and all her knowledge. She has something for everyone.
Loving the topic and information! I have been working on my stress level and I'm so happy I found this podcast.
Christa drops some Golden Nuggets!
Even just after listening to the first episode, I am in total alignment with everything that Christa is on a mission to create in this podcast. I am living the positive results of paying attention to inflammation and stress in the body - having healed my own autoimmune such as psoriasis and becoming unapologetically self aware, life is so good!
Looking forward to playing more episodes in my ear and joining the many others as we increase our abilities to take back control of stress so it does not control us!
