Managing stress in our lives

baby sleepingToday, I have been thinking about STRESS. Why? Because I am quite a stress-head! No – really? Yes, really! I have been known to lie awake thinking about the next day in the office, or worrying about a conversation from the previous day that occurred at work – I have lost hours of sleep after being woken by a little lady with bad dreams, I have felt like tearing my hair out (literally) after asking my 8 year old for the 20th time to go and get his uniform on and in general, I take everything incredibly seriously and like to do my absolute BEST in everything – and these facets of my character, brings with them, STRESS.

Only recently I have thought more about the damage done to my body by STRESS – about the little free radicals racing around causing damage in the short and long term to my body AND to my relationships with those close to me. And only recently I have found a wonderful antidote to stress – my wonderful antioxidant and adaptogen TONIC.

Now, every morning I swig my 15ml of TONIC, smile sweetly at my kids (at least for a few minutes) and live an active life where my brain moves rapidly from one task to the next and I find myself getting through to the evening without exhibiting major symptoms of stress like I used to. Although, there are still minor wobbles after I have repeated myself over 10 times and the kids have still not brushed their teeth! No one can live stress free – but we can find something that decreases its negative impact on our bodies.

And every evening I have another 15ml of tonic, just before lights out and I sleep like a baby. Literally – I have never before experienced such deep and restful sleep. And, if I am woken by a kid in need, a situation that lead to excessive grinding of teeth and a very cranky morning Mum in days gone by, I smile serenely, even swap beds to accommodate the kid with nightmares and return to sleep generally within 30 mins – unheard of previously.

If you too are living with too much stress and are concerned about the impact on your body do let me know – I just might have the solution for you.
