Keep your stress in check
Most of you are just getting back to your routines after the holidays and the process of easing back into your day really is not an option. It ‘s wakes up, hit the alarm, feet on the floor and let’s do this. So, it not really difficult to understand why everyone is so stressed out.

Whether you’re working overtime, battling exams, or caring for a sick relative, chronic stress has become commonplace and this this time of year there are added pressures of mounting bills from the holiday spend. We also live in a culture of over stimulation, keeping track of every text or email. We are one click away from anything that we want or need. All this stress causes physiological changes in your body that over time can even lead to chronic illness. When your body in under stress it produces a cascade of reactions.Your brain senses that it is under attack, your brain responds by sending back a number of physical responses to halt the stress. Your heart rate may increase, you may sweat more or your muscles may tense and a number of other reactions that help you to fight the threat off or flee to safety.

Unfortunately, the body can also overreact to stressors that are
non-life-threatening, such as traffic jams, work pressure, and family
difficulties. Over time, repeated activation of the stress responses in the brain (sort like a motor that is idling for too long) takes a toll on the body, contributing to a number of health conditions from high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, poor gut health and immune issues, mental illness, addiction, obesity etc. It also takes a toll on your physical and mental well-being.
Don’t over look the power of A Supplement for Stress
With the understanding that you will always have stressors and that the key to how your body responds starts in the brain, re-establishing the brain-body balance is important for your overall mental health and well-being.  Creating an atmosphere for healing is a good first step which means taping into healthy thinking, acting to change things and reaching out for social support. But it also involves providing your brain and body with the nutrients it needs to better handle, adapt and recover from its continued stress reactions. Rather then just treat the symptoms of stress consider supplements that can help you better manage all the stuff that life is throwing at you. When you are under stress your body uses key vitamins such as Vitamin C and the Vitamin B’s and if you are not replacing them as quickly as your body consumes them, it can worsen your stress response. B vitamins support the entire central nervous systems, they positively affect memory, depression, energy, mood and Vitamin C is required to help product the stress hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine. There are some great single ingredient supplements for stress, anxiety and sleep but since stress manifests itself in different ways for different people we suggest taking a stress formula that combines a number of herbal ingredients in one, to ensure not only compliancy in taking them but convenience and the synergistic affect of the stress blend. Veeva Stress is a great choice especially when paired with their Veeva Sleep taken at night. Taking a holistic approach to your stress can provide a more balance way through your day.
