Finishing the stress-reducing tips from the December 2012 Prevention Magazine:
- Eat grass-fed beef because it has good levels of iron. As many as 15% of women ages 20 to 40 are iron deficient.
- Natural soothers: milky oat seed tincture: 2-3 ml instantly relaxes. Tea with kava. Lemon, lime and orange scents -- dissolve 15 drops of one of those essential oils in 2 tablespoons of water, put into a spray bottle and mist your house for a pick-me-up, and mist your pillow with lavender oil before going to bed.
- Think sensually: Doing things that feel good, like taking a warm shower or listening to a favorite piece of music help support the release of endorphins which make us feel better.
