We often associate ‘stress’ as the feeling of being under too much mental, physical or emotional strain. And the festive season is the perfect example of this. How we can put ourselves under undue physical and emotional stress in order to have the ‘perfect’ Christmas.
We run and race to try to buy gifts, food and decorations. We celebrate, indulge and enjoy all the silly season has to offer! However, all this rejoicing can leave us feeling sluggish and overwhelmed. The late nights can knock us out of our regular sleeping patterns. Not to mention the endless shopping lists that mean we are stressed out by the time Christmas day arrives.
So what can I do to unwind and de-stress in the lead up to and also during the festive season?
Well, something as simple as supplementing with a good quality magnesium may help. Taken during the holiday season it could help you feel better equipped both physically and mentally to deal with these stressors.
Much research shows that lower levels of magnesium available to the body during stressful times reduce our ability to deal with and react positively to stress. The lower the levels of magnesium the more over-reactive our stress response can be and we can feel overwhelmed and anxious.
Dietary intake of magnesium has been shown to be somewhat insufficient in Western diets. That’s why supplementing with magnesium is encouraged so we can enjoy and more importantly recover from the silly season more easily!
