What Can Be Done About Stress?

, ,

When you are stressed, it puts your body into a ‘catabolic’ state. This means that your body doesn’t repair as quickly. Have you ever noticed that when someone you know has gone through a major stress in their life, that they look 10 years older?

  • Do you feel like you never have enough time to do everything you need to do in your day?
  • Do you use caffeine to give yourself a boost in energy or to give yourself the kick-start that you need in the morning?
  • Do you get stressed when you are stuck in traffic?

If you have answered ‘Yes’ to one or more of these questions, then your body may be in a catabolic state.

Here are 3 pointers to help get you back on track.

1)      Eat lots of fresh vegetables. Aim for 5 different coloured vegetables at lunch and dinner. Vegies have anti-oxidants, which help to reduce the stress on your body.

2)      Eat regular meals. If your blood sugar levels are out of balance, this will put a stress on your body. Eat 3 main meals and 2 snacks per day.

3)      Reduce or cut out the coffee. This can be a very difficult thing to do. Sometimes cutting it down slowly is easier.

These 3 tips will help to get you started, but if you answered  ‘YES’ to any of  the above questions, then your stress may need a bit more expert advice. Specific herbs, nutrients and lifestyle changes will mean that you will be stress free for good. If this sounds like something you need to do then call me on 1300 91 21 81 to find out about what you can do to get to the cause of your ‘catabolic’ or ‘not repairing’ state.

So get back into your ‘Just got back from holiday’ mode and start feeling great and living your life well the whole month through!
