Does it sometimes feel impossible to control your stress levels? Are you constantly on high-alert and don’t feel like you can’t regain control? That might be because stress isn’t avoidable & in our modern times, can feel constant.
Read on for easy to implement tips on how to adapt to stress & be more present, without having to meditate for hours or rely on an elaborate morning routine.
Stress is an automatic response to triggers in our environment, many of them happen on a subconscious level. It’s important to learn how to adapt to stress instead of always trying to avoid it entirely. When you surrender your control over this physiological response and focus on ways to counteract its effects in healthy ways instead, it opens up a world of opportunities for bullet-proofing your stress levels & finding more calm.
First things first, our basic physiology plays a huge role in how our bodies adapt to stress. Covering your health “bases” is a great place to start. Thirst, hunger, and even sitting for too long can send signals to your brain that something is off or “unsafe”, causing unexplained anxiety. When you’re constantly experiencing unexplained anxiety, your body starts to think you’re constantly unsafe — this keeps the switch “on” for your stress response.
Our gut is a main culprit of health unrest, and healing it is crucial to our well-being. When you have inflammation in your gut from processed foods, it can send signals to your brain that something is seriously wrong, which can cause a stress response. For many, this means unexplained anxiety throughout the day with no rational explanation.
Here are some ways to lay down a strong foundation for your health, and in the process experience less stress and anxiety:
Immunity Boosting, Gut Healing, Skin Glowing Elixir:
1/2 ounce ginger juice (fresh)
Juice from 1/2 lemon (fresh)
18 ounces of filtered water
1 scoop Organifi Glow
1 packet Organifi Pure
Shake and serve in Organifi glass water bottle, drink daily
Optional: serve over crushed ice with a sprig of fresh mint
In my experience with my clients, simple always wins. We live in a world that over-complicates health which can be discouraging. Try your best to cover these simple health bases, and you’ll see a major difference in your stress levels from day to day. Remember, your gut is the golden door of opportunity to your health, and healthy skin is an amazing indicator that everything on the inside is working properly. That’s why these two products, Pure & Glow by Organifi are staples in my daily self-care for stress relief.
