There is not one single person who hasn’t experienced stress. The little stresses are what makes our bodies stronger, and more capable of responding to stressful situations. However, if the body is in constant stress, and is unable to recover, it could greatly affect your energy levels. Chronic stress an lead to fatigue.

Here’s what you can do to keep yourself above stress:


Exercise releases endorphines, which is the happiness hormone. It may help improve not only the external physical wellbeing, but also within.


Meditation helps create calm and creates a sense of peace.


It has been proven that spending time with nature has a relaxing effect.

Stay social.

Interacting with friends and family may increase one’s resilience to stress.


With proper diet and nutrition, you will be able to adapt to stress more effectively, and you’ll see your energy levels increase, building your resistance along the way.

FOUR major stress busters:

Ginseng family – The herbal medicine commonly known as “Ginseng” help restore energy that is lost. They also shield the brain from excessive stress. There are actually different kinds of ginsengs — Korean, American, Siberian, Noto and Indian (withania). They work very differently.

Rhodiola – This herb is regarded as a mental and physical energy tonic. It helps the brain regulate itself when stressed.

Vitamin B complex – Any time there is stress, the demand for vitamin Bs increase. Add the fact that they are water soluble, the levels can drop quite quickly. Look for Riboflavin sodium phosphate, Pyridoxal-5-phosphate, an folate such as levomefolate calcium (calcium L-5- methyltetrahydrofolate) and a Vitamin B12 such as mecobalamin (co-methylcobalamin)

Tyrosine – A building block for brain chemicals that are known as neurotransmitters, the amino acid tyrosine plays a crucial role in the support of healthy mood, alertness, and responses to stress.
