I hope your week is off to a great start! We have taken a look at so many great areas when it comes to stress and anxiety. Some insights, some tips, some tools…

If you find yourself struggling with stress and anxiety, I have more tools for you! Remember, it’s OK if some tools work for you while others do not. It’s also alright for things to feel uncomfortable at first. The more you give something a try, the more likely you are to see if it truly works for you or not.

On that note… here are two effective healing mantras to try:

“I breathe in calmness, I breathe out tension.”

Use this mantra while practicing deep breathing exercises to help calm your mind and body.

“Every breath I take brings me closer to peace.”

Focus on the present moment and the calming rhythm of your breath to find peace within yourself.

Nourish Your Brain with These 6 Brain-Friendly Snacks! 🍓🧠


What we eat has a direct impact on our brain (and thus anxiety).

Want to make sure you’re feeding your brain the best fuel?

Here are 6 brain-friendly snacks: 

  • Berries: Such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, are packed with antioxidants that help protect brain cells from oxidative stress. They also contain flavonoids, which have been linked to improved memory and cognitive function.
  • Nuts and Seeds: Nuts and seeds are rich in healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals that support brain health. Walnuts, in particular, are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain function. Almonds, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, and sunflower seeds are also excellent choices.
  • Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate contains flavonoids and antioxidants that have been shown to improve cognitive function and mood. Opt for dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70% or higher) to maximize the potential benefits.
  • Greek Yogurt or Kefir: Greek yogurt and kefir are rich in protein and probiotics, which support brain health and gut health, respectively. Choose plain Greek yogurt or kefir and add your favorite toppings for a delicious and nutritious snack.
  • Seaweed Snacks: Seaweed snacks are low in calories and packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They’re also a good source of iodine, which is essential for thyroid function and brain health. Enjoy seaweed snacks on their own or pair them with sushi rice for a flavorful treat.
  • Bell Pepper Strips with Guacamole: Bell peppers are rich in vitamin C, which is important for brain health and immune function. Dip sliced bell peppers in homemade guacamole for a crunchy and nutritious snack packed with healthy fats and antioxidants.

If you’re seeking extra support and guidance on your journey to overcoming stress and anxiety, stay tuned, as I am committed to sharing the ways in which natural medicine can empower you (and me…) to live a more abundant and stress-free life.
