Staying “Cool” while Staying In
By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.
Q: I’m feeling stressed out from being cooped up while trying to follow social distancing guidelines. What can I do to help relieve this stress?
A: There are many things we can do to help ourselves keep our “cool”. Developing new routines to keep a sense of rhythm to our days (including scheduling time for self-care) can be helpful. Seek advice from mental health professionals (even if it’s just reading their blogs) to help understand what is going on inside our heads mentally and for tips on how to cope. For some of us, adaptogenic herbs such as ashwagandha can help our bodies actually adapt to the new stressors in our lives. ADRENAL CHILL from CANPREV™ combines ashwagandha (to reduce cortisol, stress, and anxiety) with l-theanine (an amino acid that promotes relaxation without sedation) to help us keep our cool during these trying times.
