Battling through the loft to find the decorations, shopping, more shopping, nights out, working out whether to use Nigella’s or Jamie’s sprout recipe (Nigella, every time)? School concerts, getting excited children to SLEEP, remembering to move the Elf each night. Or maybe you have stress of a different kind – eating food and drink that your body really doesn’t do well on, too much alcohol, sugar and not enough sleep.
My nutritional solution to stress is Magnesium.
My second solution when the going gets tough is L-theanine.
If it gets really tough, grab MegaMag Calmeze
Easy ways to get more Magnesium:
– Saute plenty of spinach in butter and add pine nuts and poached egg.
– Whip up a green smoothie – a couple of handfuls of spinach or kale, blended with pineapple and banana.
–Magnesium oil is a fab quick fix, use at nightime for the best effect (PS – only spray of the soles of your feet to begin with or it could be a bit itchy!)
Every little helps:
For extra daily tranquility sip green or lemon balm tea. And breathe (deeply).
Good sleep hygeine:
Sleep is vital for managing stress, good quality deep sleep. So do away with phones and tablets in the bedroom which disrupt melatonin production and keep the room nice and dark. Alcohol is also super disruptive to sleep quality.
