This year has really been one for the books. It is also probably the year you would most likely want to forget. It is difficult to stay focussed on the good things that happened too, especially when you are dealing with stress and not knowing when life will go back to normal.
Our bodies just weren’t made for stress. People are having strokes and being diagnosed with cancer much younger than previously. Most people over the age of 35 are on some type of chronic medication, whether it be for cholesterol, depression or blood pressure.
The best advice anyone can give you is to set up wellness-plans to help you cope through the tough times. Thankfully, a lot of attention has been given to naturally combat symptoms your body is throwing at you and we want to share a few that we believe in:
