Mental Health In May: Managing Stress from the Inside Out

May 14, 2019

O2 Living Hemp extract and progesterone blog - organic fruits and vegetables This May, O2 Living and the JCK Foundation have partnered to raise awareness for mental health! We're featuring blogs and articles on mental health issues. This week we're talking about how you may be able to manage and deal with your stress from the inside out.

You may be surprised to hear that your diet and nutrition can have a substantial impact on your stress and anxiety levels. Including foods found in a live food diet, such as: barley, lentils, brown rice, nuts, buckwheat groats, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, grapefruit, cabbage and oranges in your diet is a good start.

Another important area of health is your bowels. Bowel elimination is essential for your health as waste matter must be removed from your body regularly and safely. In cases of extreme constipation, you may want to use colonic irrigation or enemas - you should never use mineral oil as this will rob your body of fat soluble vitamins.

Your B-complex intake is also important for your overall health so a balanced diet which includes distilled water, fruits and raw salads, whole grains and vegetables is also essential. We suggest Living Juices organic, cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. Not only are they delicious, the Living Juices pack a powerful punch of nutrients and vitamins! 

Adequate levels of vitamin D from natural sunshine can also alleviate levels of stress and anxiety. As your skin soaks in the sun’s rays, it will store the germ-killing energy, which leads to better health overall. However, you should avoid the sun in the middle of the day and always wear sunscreen to protect your skin.

Finally, sleep is one of the most important tools for coping with stress. Getting a good night’s sleep lets your body and mind restore and regenerate. Try relaxing or meditating before bed to give your mind time to unwind and avoid caffeine or alcohol which will affect your sleep quality. If you're looking for a natural aid to help manage stress, we suggest Living Health and Wellness Hemp Extract oils! Learn more about hemp extract's soothing properties here.
