Psssssst… I Got Your Secret Weapon Against Anxiety

I was catching up with one of my biz besties yesterday and she shared how she’s been experiencing a ton of anxiety lately.

So in typical Wellness Coach Miriam fashion, I started digging into her lifestyle.

 

How have you been sleeping?
Did you get that workout in, yesterday?
Are you taking an oral birth control?

I soon stumbled across a few places in her lifestyle where she could support herself better and alleviate some of that anxiety.

My girl needed to get some B vitamins in her life!

I quickly rattled off some B vitamin rich foods for her to run, not walk, to the store and get.

In the Eating for Stress Masterclass, I broke down the importance of B vitamins and so many other nutrients. B vitamin deficiency is linked to anxiety and yes ma’am oral birth control contributes to that deficiency. B vitamins help to support healthy brain function, from nerves to brain cells.

Tell anxiety to kick rocks and download your free copy of the Feel Good Foods grocery list. All the foods on this list lessen the impact of stress and anxiety.
