For Better Energy
As end-of-summer festivities give way to back-to-school season, parents and teens must juggle work schedules, school activities, and social events—but everyone can stay energized with a few simple tips.
PREPARE FOR STRESS: More than any element of modern life, nervous tension and worry may be leading contributors to chronic fatigue. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, stress may also trigger the adrenal glands to produce hormones that may result in digestive problems, blood sugar imbalances, and the resulting fatigue and exhaustion. Practice relaxation techniques like meditation and use exercise to help relieve tension. When possible, schedule extra time for daily activities to avoid feeling rushed.
EXPERIMENT WITH AROMATHERAPY: Sense of smell can trigger a variety of sensations, including feelings of well-being and relaxation. For example, citrus fruit like lemon can revive and sharpen the senses and improve mental clarity and alertness while fostering a calming mood. Using an aromatherapy diffuser in the car can help promote a relaxed state when running errands or dropping off children at school.
ADD SUPPLEMENTS: Nutrients such as vitamins C and D, magnesium, and potassium might be lacking in the diet, but supplementing can help the body reenergize while contributing to overall health—supporting the proper function of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system. Non-habit forming, stimulant-free trueENERGY from Redd Remedies is one of our go-to’s: It supports adrenal, thyroid, and liver function with rhodiola rosea, an herb that has been used for centuries to fight fatigue and increase physical endurance, work productivity, and longevity.
