If you're looking to transform your body, Janella said the best place to start is to take a look at your life and remove as many 'stressors' as possible. 'Stressors are not just related to emotional stress,' Janella told FEMAIL. 'Usually, the greatest stress we will be exposed to in a single day is physical stress. This includes the way we hold our body while we sleep, sit, think, drive, stand or argue.' She said physical stress is related to how much we push our bodies via the type of work and exercise we do, and the hours we keep. For instance, if you're someone who runs around all day without breathing deeply and holding tension in your stomach, neck and shoulders, then you're going to be physically stressed. Ditto if you drink alcohol reasonably frequently, eat junk food, take medication and/or recreational drugs. 'There is also an element of invisible stress that we're all exposed to,' Janella said. 'This includes electromagnetic waves from microwaves, ultraviolet and infra-red radiation - which comes from your mobile, your computer, bluetooth speakers and other devices that connect to them.' The naturopathic physician recommends you try and limit these things as much as possible, by cutting down on your tech usage and breathing deeply into your stomach. 'There is such a thing as too much exercise - especially that of the "yang" or cardio sort,' Janella (pictured) said - as she said this can stress out your body When it comes to how you can transform your body, Janella said that exercise that is 'right for where your body is at that point' is crucial.
