Secret Weapons To Extinguish Stress

I’m sure it’s not just me, but life is feeling full-on at the moment.

Likes the flood gates have been opened after all the recent restrictions.

Everyone is busy.

Not having enough time.

And the horrible feeling of overwhelm and a bit of anxiety kicks in.

I can see it with members at the gym.

Particular if you are on a bit of a dieting phase.

Which is also a stressor to the body.

And a constantly highly stressed body will be a body producing A LOT of cortisol.

Cortisol is a hormone we need for fight and flight situations.

It’s released in the morning to get us going and also when training.

A bit of it is actually good, but too much all the time and it can actually make us fat, sick and inflamed.

The best way to tackle this is to nail stress management.

Listen, life’s stresses are always going to be there.

Changing how we view them will be the best thing we can do.

Rather than think “why always me” – let’s take them on as challenges that will make us stronger.

Just like adapting to your gym sessions or workouts.

They are hard at first but soon become manageable.

But there are also a couple of supplements that can help tackle stress.

Yet before we even look at them, if you aren’t getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

No number of supplements will help.

Interestingly, the next couple of recommendations are linked to sleep and improving it.

Firstly, I would recommend everyone to take Magnesium daily.

Low magnesium levels are correlated to stress.

Rising stress levels increase the need for more magnesium.

And this is why we need to keep magnesium stores topped up for daily utilization.

In fact, magnesium is such an important mineral, it plays a role in over 300 reactions in the body.

It’s fantastic to also help you get to sleep – which we know is important.

Use a spray-on transdermal magnesium on the base of your neck before bed and thank me later.

I use this ….. Magnesium Spray

To also increase the chill factor in the evenings and get a better night’s sleep.

Its also worth trying this natural herb.

Ashwagandha, it gives you a nice feeling of being relaxed and chilled, helping that body to switch off at night.

These two supplements have been used for thousands of years and are often overlooked.

If you find you have stubborn body fat, can’t build muscle, or struggle with sleep – just try taking the above and never let go of these little weapons in the war on stress.
