National ‘Nothing’ Day
January 12, 2018 Brankings

January 16th is National ‘Nothing’ Day.

This day is literally about doing nothing at all, which is not a bad thing considering that we often lead such stressful lives. During stressful times it is important to take some time out and be kind to yourself, eat well, rest and sleep, allowing your body to recover.

Chronic (long -term) stress has been linked to the body storing fat around the middle area (stomach) therefore often stress management may be the most significant way to help aid weight loss. Managing stress levels as well as consuming a nutritious diet and/or taking supplements my help to support the immune system as well as minimise the negative effects such as weight gain during stressful periods.

Consider increasing intakes of fruit and vegetables each day and focus on foods containing:

B Vitamins – Bananas, leafy green vegetables, avocados, nuts, seeds and also meat, fish and dairy products to help support your energy levels.

Vitamin C – Oranges, tomatoes, peppers, kiwi fruit, leafy green vegetables, broccoli are rich in Vitamin C, important in supporting the adrenal glands, which contain the largest store of vitamin C in the body.

Magnesium – Nuts, leafy green vegetables, whole grains, especially oats, brown rice and beans are good sources. You can also take a relaxing bath with Epsom salts as these contain magnesium that can be absorbed through your skin, which can help to relax muscles and reduce anxiety.

Reduce – Caffeine, alcohol, sugar and salt and smoking as these put stress on the adrenal glands, and strip the body of essential nutrients.

Increase – exercise, even gentle exercise can help reduce stress levels, including Yoga and tai chi, swimming, breathing exercises, meditation may also help reduce stress. Taking time out just to relax can help you manage your stress more effectively.

Sleep – Getting sufficient and quality sleep, whilst eating healthier and avoiding excessive caffeine may help you sleep well and for longer periods.
