  • countering the affects of stress

    My professional life has recently bottemed out. Nightmares and eye twitches are 2 of the physiological effects apparent to me. I can only assume this means some bad stress hormone things are going on internally. Is there any nutritional intervention that might help counter some of this stuff?

    Cut your caffeine intake : 1-2 cups a day
    Don't go long periods of time without eating - it increases cortisol that is already at a peak when you are mentally stressed.
    Eat at regular hours: example - 8am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm
    Get 8hrs of sleep a night.

    Exercise can also be a source of stress relief for some so if you aren't already doing so, try walking(which I find meditative), or weight training.
