What does long term stress do to the body? | Simple remedies to help

Long term stress can cause many different health issues for those affected by it and the people around them. It can also negatively affect their performance in school or at work, which is why it is vital that people are able to identify the signs of stress and know how to handle it. There are many ways a person can cope with long term stress, such as getting proper sleep, exercising regularly, eating healthy foods with some fun treats every now and then, being mindful about your emotions, surrounding yourself with friends or family members who care about you and listen to your concerns.

Simple herbal remedies can sometimes be a great help.

Take Passiflora as an example, which is also known as Passion Flower.
Passiflora is known to relieve stress, so it can be a great choice for someone who keeps having stress at work or in school.

"Passion Flower as a natural stress reliever has been used since ancient times."
In the Philippines, where Passiflora is native, a lot of people use it for smoking to relieve stress. It is most commonly found in Ireland as a tincture or tablet. It works on the nervous system and helps you destress without making you sleepy or drowsy.

Another well known herb is Ashwagandha. It can be very helpful in cases of stress especially where sleep is an issue too. Astragalus and Milk Thistle are helpful herbs that can help you sleep better.

"Milk thistle is a great herb to try if you tend to have nightmares and/or sleep issues."
It can be used with all types of pain, ranging from headaches to joint pain.
Ashwagandha is also known as Indian Ginseng and it can be bought in liquid or capsule form.
This herb helps with stress and insomnia.

Magnesium is in short supply in 2022. There are not enough minerals in the soil our vegetables are grown in and as a consequence of this, as a population, we have never had such low levels of magnesium in our bodies. So supplementing with magnesium can help with many issues someone might be having.
Restless legs is probably the top reason people take this mineral, stress and sleep being the second most popular reason magnesium is supplemented.

There are many more simple things to try as I mentioned earlier like getting proper sleep, exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, being mindful about your emotions, surrounding yourself with friends or journaling / writing our daily gratitude's.

We all go through ups and downs in life, we sometimes forget this when we're hitting a low.
