What do you do when you feel stressed or anxious? Some of us dig into ice cream and romance novels, while others veg out on the couch with junk food munchies and junk food TV. But holistic health coach Nicole Risdall suggests an alternative: Finding holistic ways to ease stress, boost your energy and even help you become naturally slim:
- For breakfast, try mixing up a green smoothie made of kale or spinach, almond butter, almond milk, ice and a banana, says Nicole. Into that smoothie, add a fermented green drink from Body Ecology (click here to learn more) that will benefit your adrenals and thyroid. "The fermentation of the greens help to portect/rebuild the immune system and provide better gut health – and both are important to take care of when you are under stress," explains Nicole. She also recommends maca root powder to boost stamina and relieve fatigue, such as Navitas Naturals Maca Powder (click here to get now).
- Do you drink coffee all day? Nicole recommends green tea: Find out more about the benefits of green tea, from boosting your metabolism to reducing your risk of cancer, by clicking here.
- In addition to replacing processed foods with natural foods, Nicole suggests taking fermented cod oil to provide your brain with essential fatty acids (EFAs). Other sources of EFAs include omega supplements, such as NOW Foods Omega 3-6-9.
