Stress means different things to different people; situations that some might see as exciting, others might view with anxiety and fear.

There are many types of stresses that our bodies endure, including physical, emotional, environmental and chemical. Our response to stress is the same today as it has always been. When we perceive a threat of any sort, it affects our autonomic nervous system and our ‘fight or flight’ instinct kicks in. As a result, we release adrenaline to take on whatever the stressor might be. Over time, this can take a toll on our energy, weight, sleep and hormonal balance. Whilst we can’t always control the stresses we encounter, we can help our body’s response to the impact is has and the damage it might cause.
Nutrition plays a vital role and happily there are many foods that naturally calm the system, reduce anxiety and encourage restful sleep.

Join leading holistic nutritionist Alison Cowell for an informative and empowering evening for some useful tips for stress management, perfect timing as we approach busy December!
