Janice Markley - Independent Noevir ConsultantNine Ways to Reduce Stress

Dear Janice,
What are the health benefits of a superfood like Spirulina?

Whether or not you acknowledge it, stress affects you nearly every day. Sometimes it's a familiar (if uncomfortable) feeling, even though you can't quite identify its source; sometimes you know exactly what's causing your stress level to skyrocket. Stress is your body's response to any demand or pressure at a given time -- it's not the specific event as much as your reaction to it. (Something that stresses you one day might have little impact the next.) And because stress is subjective, not everyone reacts in the same way to a similar situation. It's how you deal with that situation as an individual that directly affects the state of your physical and psychological health.

Your stress level is largely determined by your interaction with others (family, friends, co-workers, your boss); your personal life; social and cultural changes; and your self-image. Stress levels rise when you are frustrated, worried, ill, engaged in conflict or feeling pressured. It can also be caused by everyday problems and demands, like being stuck in traffic, rushing to meet a deadline, neglecting your diet, running a household or worrying over how to pay your bills. And stress can result from an occasional demand, such as caring for a sick child, or more long-lasting strain, such as living on unemployment.

Stress can also be induced by major life events, whether pleasant or traumatic. Getting married, for instance, can be as stressful as getting divorced. The birth of a child causes stress, as does the death of a loved one. Almost every American suffered some signs of stress after the September 11th tragedies, regardless of whether they experienced personal loss. As a nation, our stress levels have never been higher. Yet unrelieved stress exacts an emotional and physical toll, setting us up for
conditions such as anxiety, sleeplessness, nervousness and depression; and impairing our immune systems, which places us at greater risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease and everything from the common cold to cancer.

Ask yourself the following questions:

A "yes" answer to any one of the above could indicate you are not effectively handling the stressors in your life. Fortunately, there are ways to help keep your stress under control. Try the following stress-reducing suggestions:

Exercise regularly to reduce stress
Try for twenty minutes per day, three days a week. Exercise releases endorphins, the "feel good" hormones, which helps to lower blood pressure, relax muscles and clear the mind.

Eat healthfully to reduce stress
Aim for a high-fiber, low-fat diet. Go easy on the junk food, don't skip meals and avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and caffeine.

Take a supplement to reduce stress
Stress can rob your body of essential vitamins and minerals. Even if you think your diet is healthy, it's a prudent idea to take a nutritional supplement. After years of silence on the subject, the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in its June 19, 2002 issue, has announced that it is "prudent for adults to take vitamin supplements" to help prevent disease. Most adults do not get sufficient levels of vitamins C as well as A, B-6, B-12 and E by diet alone and could benefit from supplements.

Try Noevir Inner Care Premium Supplements, these incredible supplements are scientifically formulated to target & promote healthy skin from within, boost metabolism, protect against the elements & maintain optimum body conditions.

Get enough rest to reduce stress
Sleep is essential for keeping your stress level down.

Laugh to reduce stress
Laughter really is the best medicine. It's not always easy, but find reasons to laugh. Go to a comedy club, see a funny movie or do anything that will make you laugh.

Engage in social activities to reduce stress
Make time to be with family and friends.

Practice relaxation techniques to reduce stress
Guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, meditation and yoga are all excellent stress-reduction methods.

Get a massage to reduce stress
A massage relaxes tight muscles and improves blood circulation, both of which lead to a lowered stress level.

Adjust your thinking to reduce stress
You can't control every situation. Recognize the things that are beyond your control and learn to let go.
