What does stress do to your body? What doesn’t it do! Stress impacts your brain, heart, organs, weight, sleep cycle, hormones, mood and much more. Nutritionist and nutritional chef, Mikaela Reuben, talked to The New Potato about the impact of stress on the body—and what you can do to manage it!
What are her “coping mechanisms” for the above issues? Proper sleep is a huge one. But she also recommends using an eye mask, turning your phone off for an hour or two before sleep, deep breathing and enjoying your food while sitting down. She also recommends herbs like chamomile tea, ashwaganda, rhodiola and holy basil.
