Awesome Natural Stress Busters

                                                        With the holidays coming up on us, many people have increased stress. This is THE time of year, when the most people commit suicide. Shopping, cooking, Christmas letters/cards, gifts, finances etc. etc. A time of supposed joy, turns into a time of stress. One practical thing I have learned over the years that reduces some of this stress is to be organized. Make a list and keep it going. A grocery list, a gift list, cleaning, names for Christmas cards and so on. Keep a piece of paper on your nightstand. When you think of things during the night, write them down. It will help you go back to sleep. When you get things done on your list, mark them off. This is a natural anti­depressant. It actually feels good to scratch things of your list.

People, who take anti-anxiety medicine or anti-depressant medications, already lose their B-vitamins as a side effect. A lack of B-vitamins causes you not to be able to cope with stress. Nutri-Calm is a Key System product. It helps not only to feed your nerves, but also to relax them. Nerves are like rubber bands, you keep stretching them and don’t strengthen and relax them, they will surely pop. Take B12 Complete several times daily, especially if you are on any of the above medications. Calcium is THE mineral for the nerves. It can actually help you sleep if you take it at night. Keep on reading and see which essential oils can help you relax as well.
