Stress is a problem for almost all women at some time in their lives, often caused by the high number of modern-day pressures relating to work and family responsibilities. Stress is known to cause physical symptoms with the most common being headaches and stomach distress. Chronic stress can lead to or contribute to serious health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, autoimmune diseases, and depression (1).

Managing stress in a natural way is essential to living a healthy and happy life, and here are the 5 easiest ways to do so as an adult woman.

1. Commit to Light Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the levels of stress hormones in the body, improving physiological and psychological factors in depressive individuals (2). A 30-minute walk or a light yoga session every day is an easily achievable goal that can benefit you in many ways. In fact, strenuous exercise can be dangerous for beginners, whereas light exercise can be performed by anyone with minimal risk. Getting your blood moving releases endorphins (the body's natural painkillers) and will improve your mood and cognitive functioning as well.

Exercise doesn't have to be strenuous. A 30-minute walk or some light yoga is more than enough to get your blood moving, your endorphins spiking, and your stress leaving.

There are many natural supplements that you can take to help relieve muscle soreness and improve blood and oxygen circulation throughout the body, especially if you're feeling fatigued due to being new to exercise.

2. Try Natural Supplements

Natural supplements can help to reduce stress and anxiety in many ways. Ingredients like magnesium block the activity of more stimulating neurotransmitters and bind to calming ones in the brain, which can lower anxiety by calming the body (3). L-theanine works by increasing alpha brain waves and reducing blood pressure, helping to manage the physiological active elements of anxiety (4).

3. Avoid Stimulants and Alcohol

Stimulants are chemicals that activate or excite your nervous system. Many common stimulants are integrated into our daily lives, like caffeine and nicotine. Caffeine is, without a doubt, the most common stimulant that many people use daily without realising its psychoactive effect. It can be found in coffee, most chocolates, black teas, and soda. In small doses, alcohol can also be considered a stimulant.

Research has shown that caffeine and other stimulants can increase feelings of anxiety and stress enough to cause potential panic attacks (5).

Caffeine is not risk-free. It is a psychoactive drug that can increase anxiety, panic attacks, and stress.

4. Get Enough Quality Sleep

Stress is a known cause of sleep problems (6). Good quality sleep is essential for daily physical regeneration and long-term health. It is best to aim for seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep per night.

If you are finding it difficult to fall asleep, or if your sleep quality is poor, then there are many things you can do to improve it. consider trying our Beauty Sleep Drops for a relaxing full sleep as they will support your endocannabinoid system in regulating sleep, mood, memory, and appetite.

Sleep quality is just as important as sleep duration. For healthy sleep habits, you need to ensure that you are sleeping enough, and that your quality of sleep isn't inhibited by external factors like poor diet and and environment.

5. Change Your Diet

It is well known that eating a balanced, healthy diet can enhance general health and resistance to stress. Avoiding refined and sugary food and sticking to whole and natural foods can help stabilize our blood sugar levels, leading to less inflammation and oxidative stress, and, therefore, emotional stress (7).

Increase protein consumption by understanding the following good and bad foods:

Good foods

  • Lean meat
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Leafy greens (spinach and kale)
  • Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli and cauliflower)

Bad foods

  • Processed meats
  • Deep fried foods
  • High amounts of cheese
  • Alcohol
  • Sweets
