Need to lessen your stress levels and stay healthy this winter? Keep these tips from Boiron’s pharmacist Christophe Merville, D. Pharm. in mind:
|Make time for adequate sleep. Even a short nap (less than 20 minutes) can be helpful in keeping your mind alert, your body rested and your health at its optimum.
|Minimize junk food intake. Sugar can increase blood glucose levels and compromise your immune system by decreasing white blood cell activity.
|Cut out caffeine. Caffeine can heighten stress levels. Try drinking chamomile tea, which can help calm the stomach or promote sleep.
|Exercise often. Keeping active helps stimulate the immune system and keep it strong.
|Take a deep breath. Controlled breathing exercises and mindful breathing will help you feel more relaxed if practiced regularly.
|Use a non-sedating medicine. StressCalm relieves nervousness, irritability and hyperactivity due to stress.* These meltaway tablets address these symptoms without drowsiness and are not habit forming.
