On the occasion of the International Stress Awareness Week, we would like to share a little of our daily “but whys” with you.

We constantly notice how many of our visitors tell us that, despite eating a more or less balanced diet and doing some exercise, they still do not notice any expected changes in their health.

At Nature’s Discount, in addition to suggesting that you accompany your steps hand in hand with a specialist, we also remind you that a good mental health and lifestyle changes are also reflected in a better physical condition.

And no, living on an island paradise does not mean we get to escape a hectic life

Our tropical paradise is full of fun and natural landscapes like no others, but the daily stress and occupations still remain there for those of us who live here and are not here  for a just-for-fun visit.

Our body suffers from stress after experiencing certain situations that take us out of our comfort zone and create tension. We produce hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, and our body activates an alert signal that includes the fight-or-flight response.

This response marks the difference in situations such as jumping to prevent a car from hitting us, and organizing and managing our time to deliver  work before the end of the deadline. A little stress is more than common, and even necessary in our lives, and each person can feel different levels and triggers of stress (source: https://www.healthline.com/health/stress)

But be careful, writing in your CV “qualities” such as “work under pressure and stress” can be a wake-up call for a necessary change…

According to recent studies, some emotional traits that can bring physical consequences of an excessive stress burden include depression, anxiety, irritability, lack of memory and concentration, obsessive/compulsive  behavior, mood swings, and even a decreased libido. (Source: https://www.healthline.com/health/emotional-symptoms-of-stress#stress-management). This may also include other symptoms such as headache and migraine, and chest pain.

Exercising, finding activities that distract us, meditating, dividing large tasks into smaller and more manageable tasks, resting, eating healthy, and why not? Learning to say no, among other tips you can get in medical publications such as WebMD will help us manage everyday stress (source:  https://www.webmd.com/balance/guide/tips-to-control-stress#1).

Also, there are natural supplements that will give you that extra help that your body needs.

STRESS & ANXIETY DAY + NIGHT TABS 2X10’S with natural ingredients such as green tea helps you establish regular sleep patterns while participating in the synthesis of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that has a lot to do to improve your mood.

On the other hand, products such as ADAPTRA STRESS RELIEF CAPS 60’S with Ashwagandha and Rhodiola, help you improve your physical and mental condition to cope with everyday life, concentrate better, and feel more in control.

Managing stress on time, and with the right guidance, will not only make your day more bearable but it will lead to better emotional health will be reflected in better physical health and a great smile.

At Nature’s Discount, we join this International Stress Awareness Week and accompany you at the beginning of a healthier life.
