SHARE

Are you energetically taxing your body and now are struggling to pay the tab? Is your emergency reserve all used up? Are you starting to crash and burn from all the stress?

If this sounds familiar you will recognize these as symptoms of stress instantly. Stress can cause many different physical conditions such as; adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, digestive concerns, and flare-ups of our filters; liver, kidneys, bladder, etc. Most stress people experience is due to overwork, not enough sleep and poor eating habits. Stress can be very taxing on the body mentally, physically and emotionally. If you are experiencing the symptoms of stress, here are 13 things you can do to assist your body.

Drink Water with Himalayan Salt Upon Rising: Himalayan Salt is packed with minerals to help your body’s cells and pH levels. It enhances nutrient absorption, supports your kidneys and improves your nervous system function.

Time Your Meals: Eat breakfast within the first hour of waking up, followed by eating approx. every 2 hours until dinner. 3 balanced meals with snacks in between that are high in protein and fiber.

Eat Balanced Meals: Low-no gluten/dairy (when we are stressed these cause our body to work harder, as they are inflammatory foods) Balance= good carbs, protein, and lots of fresh organic produce.

Do Your Best: All or nothing doesn’t work here, neither does making yourself wrong for slipping or making a poor choice. This is important for our emotions too. Just make a different choice next time and don’t tank your entire day(s).

Eat Sitting Down: Eating on the run, not chewing your food properly or skipping meals creates more stress on your body. Take the time and slow down if only for a few minutes. Your gut and adrenals will thank you!

Do Low Impact Exercise: Alleviate stress by gentle exercise. The flip side to this if weight is your concern, is that you can actually experience weight loss by giving your body what it is desiring. High impact exercise can be brought back again, but while your body is stressed, be gentle.

Breathing Breaks: meditate, go for a walk, smell oils, take a nap, whatever helps you relax and feel centered. Take a few different breathing breaks throughout your day.

No Snacks After Dinner: Try to time it so your last meal is no later than 7 based on the 2-hour meal/snack protocol.

Epsom Salt Baths: magnesium stores get low when stressed, enjoy a relaxing bath with salts to replenish. You can also take a magnesium supplement.

Increase your B vitamins, and/or add in a good adrenal support supplement.

Eliminate caffeine intake: You can do it. Even if it’s temporary, drink a different decaf hot drink instead. Hot lemon water is a great replacement even if it doesn’t taste like it.

Drink Lots of Water: Flush toxins and assist your body by staying hydrated.

Get to Bed: Ultimately by 9 pm. Your body heals best with sleep, so if you are burning the candle at both ends, allow yourself this time. Also if you are following the eating protocol, you will want to be asleep before hunger strikes and you are tempted to snack.

When stressed it is always good to release as much as you can. Empty as much off your plate as possible and be kind to yourself. Energy work can be beneficial to balance and replenish your energies as well as giving you some time to deeply relax.
