Stress can wreak havoc on the body. An article published last year; 2014, cited that the majority of doctors visits were stress related.
Since we can't always obliterate the stress inducing factors in our life, we can learn coping mechanisms to alleviate the negative affects of stress.
Some tips that work:
Spending time outdoors
Escape with a hobby or a good book
I've been trying to incorporate the above tips into my life as best I can. It's still too cold to head outdoors, but I have started exercising three times a week and I'm never without a good book. Another thing that has helped me is adding magnesium daily. A simple thing that has made a difference.
Stress related deceases have often been linked to a magnesium deficiencies
Many doctors wisely recommend magnesium supplementation for stress. This is because magnesium is the most important mineral for coping with stress in the body. Stress related deceases, such as heart attacks, have often been linked to a magnesium deficiency. Stress actually depletes that body of magnesium, so it's kinda like a vicious cycle.
Feeling Stressed? A yummy way to get calm
Natural Calm by Natural Vitality is a yummy way to stay calm. Recommended dose contains 325 milligrams of highly absorbable ionic magnesium citrate Available in various flavors and only contains organic natural sweeteners. The Raspberry-Lemon and the Cherry are my favorite flavors. I enjoy my Natural Calm in either hot water for a nice hot drink or in seltzer for a refreshing cold drink. I split the serving size up so that I'm able to flavor multiple drinks. It has its own natural fizz which adds to the fizz of the seltzer.

In times of stress it's not uncommon to reach for the wrong things; alcoholic beverages, junk foods and sodas, to help us cope. Natural Calm is a sweet alternative that provides that instant fix, but also goes a step further by restoring the body's magnesium. This results in a natural calm.
