In a world that’s constantly spinning, most of us can relate to the daily juggle of to-do lists and busy schedules. Whether you’re a young adult cramming for exams, a professional pursuing your career or a parent managing the kids and home, life often requires an impressive amount of time management and attention.
It’s perfectly natural when all this hustle and bustle occasionally causes feelings of stress. In fact, recent studies show that 54% of Americans ages 18-45 have experienced significant levels of stress in the last year. This has led people to seek more meaningful solutions for occasional stress management—be it a clinical route or more holistic approach like meditation.
And, if you’re one of the many looking for natural methods to tackle occasional stress, we’re happy to tell you there are a few simple yet powerful changes you can make to accomplish just that! Want to know more? Keep on reading for our top 4 science-backed tips, plus clean label products to help you stress less:
STRESS TIP #1: Listen to Your Gut
Sure, gut health might not be a hot topic of conversation at the dinner table, but its wellbeing is vital to support a healthy stress response. Known as your “second brain”, the gut is shown to have a surprising impact on mental health. Science has even drawn a direct correlation between a balanced microbiome—i.e. the tiny microbes that populate your intestinal tract—and your overall mood, nervous system and cognitive function. Who knew these little guys had so much power?
When it comes to maintaining gut health, creating an environment that allows the “good” bacteria to flourish is an excellent place to start. If you haven’t already, try adding prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics into your daily routine to help promote both balance and diversity in your microbiome. While probiotics are most notably recognized for supporting balanced gut microbiota, certain strains have even shown a positive impact on serotonin in clinical studies.

Like we said, pre-, pro- and postbiotics are excellent for your gut health, which means they’re also excellent for your mind!

STRESS TIP #2: Take Your Supplements
More and more people are shopping for vitamin supplements, and it’s no surprise why! Having an effective vitamin routine not only creates a strong foundation for wellness, but it can also help fill in nutritional gaps and support brain health. Magnesium, omegas and B vitamins are some of the most popular go-to supplements, as they are proven essential to brain structure and function.
Did you know there are even supplements to help manage occasional stress? Often derived from plants and mushrooms, adaptogen supplements have been found to help neutralize the effects of occasional stress on the body. Adaptogens help enhance a healthy lifestyle by optimizing the body’s chemical responses, positively impacting fatigue, occasional stress and occasional anxiousness. So, if you’re on the search for some extra reinforcement in the stress department (aren’t we all?), then now’s the time to seek a comprehensive supplement routine with adaptogenic support.

STRESS TIP #3: Bio-Hack Your Brain Waves
Nootropics (like L-theanine, bacopa plant and ginkgo leaf) are brain-boosting substances that have been around since ancient times. Today, they can be found in an array of supplements and are highly praised for their ability to support focus, learning, thinking and other cognitive functions. Even better, due to their positive impacts on the mind, nootropics are also believed to play a big role in managing occasional stress levels. This makes them a great go-to for the daily hustle and bustle of meetings, errands, carpool and life.

STRESS TIP #4: Get Enough Sleep
You probably hear this one all the time, but hey, cliches are cliches for a reason! A good night’s sleep is truly essential to overall health—especially your brain and stress health. Not only does proper rest on consistent basis give major body systems time to reset and recharge, but it also plays a key role in regulating hormones.
Science shows cortisol (i.e. the stress hormone) is directly linked to your sleep quality and patterns. How so? Well, just like food and water, sleep is essential to your survival. When the body doesn’t receive this necessity, it can trigger a state of distress which naturally raises cortisol levels. This often results in heightened feelings of occasional stress, tension and even occasional anxiousness. By prioritizing those ZZZZs, you can help support your overall wellbeing while managing tension and healthy cortisol levels.

It’s one thing to know that sleep is important for a healthy stress response but falling asleep and finding quality sleep are often easier said than done. And that’s why we created Modere Sleep Health!
