Combat Anxiety




How to Combat Anxiety

Living with anxiety is a serious issue for many people. Millions of people who suffer from it are constantly searching for a way to escape it. Learning to control anxiety is a long process that cannot be learned overnight. However, there are myriad ways to cope with and combat anxiety, and many of them are natural:

· Elevate Mood and Exercises

Exercises serve as one of the best ways to combat anxiety. To some, it may initially seem arduous and tiresome, but for so many people suffering from anxiety, it quickly becomes essential. When are physically active, your body releases endorphins that are responsible for new brain cell growth and stimulation needed to focus. It also helps promotes higher self-esteem.
Studies show that exercise can help enhance people's moods from mild to moderate, which is also necessary for combating anxiety. Exercise is often considered a healthier alternative than taking medications to treat anxiety because, if performed correctly, it has virtually no downside.

· Proper Mindset

Another way help combat anxiety is to nurture the proper mindset by focusing on the right perspective and mindfulness.
Many people suffering from anxiety view their life as a game, and not a fun one. However, they are looking at the wrong things. Many things that happen in life can be viewed as positive things. Just because you experience negative things doesn’t mean your life is negative, or that you should give up. You need to view those negative things as essential opportunities for you to succeed in the future.
Adopting a positive mindset offers a huge array benefits in your life. It prevents your body from reacting to those negative things happening in your life. It also gives you a chance to live happier and more satisfied with the things that you already have, even the simplest things.
These are just two of the most significant and effective ways to combat anxiety. There are many more approaches that range from changes in eating habits and emotional behaviors to being more selective about your social circle. Improve your awareness of yourself. Take small steps. Pay attention to what makes you anxious and learn how to deal with those situations little by little until you begin to feel in control of your anxiety.

Apple Soup Recipe

  • You can easily absorb nutrients from this delicious energy soup because of its highly digestible liquid form
  • Apples contain high amounts of vitamin C, fiber, riboflavin, thiamin, and pyridoxine
  • Just half an avocado can satiate your appetite and help prevent overeating

  • 2 medium Fuji or Gala apples, cored and cut into 4 pieces
  • Juice of 1/2 medium lemon
  • 2 cups spring mix or spinach
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pit removed
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups pure filtered water
  •  Himalayan salt, to taste

In a blender, combine apples, lemon juice, greens, avocado, mint, and two cups of water. Blend until smooth, adding more water as necessary for desired consistency. Season with salt to taste.

Avoid buying apples with bruises and holes. Make sure to include their skin in your soup as it contains most of their nutrients. However, remember that apples are among the most contaminated fruits today, so it’s best to buy them organic.
When storing your apples, refrigerate them at a temperature of 39 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain their freshness. If one of your apples has been damaged or spoiled, it is better to discard it right away.1 It may be surprising, but avocado must actually be peeled the right way to maximize its nutritional benefits. Research has shown that most of the fruit’s carotenoids are located closest to the inside of its peel.2
To get all of avocado’s nutritional benefits, you must cut it lengthwise around the seed. Then, twist each half in the opposite direction to remove them from the seed. Cut each half lengthwise and scoop the avocado with a spoon, but make sure that you get the fruit close to the skin.

    Optimizing Your Skin Health

    Strategies for Optimizing Your Skin Health (and Other Areas)

    Drinking water with lemon added to it and/or placing few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar into water to drink on a daily basis, as well as drinking the right amount of water for your body, are easy strategies for optimizing your health.
    Eating plenty of vegetables will also go a long way toward optimizing your skin, because the antioxidants in them fight free radicals and support your immune and mitochondrial systems. Bulletproof adds that supporting your health on the inside helps keep you looking vibrant on the outside, and in addition:

    “Fat from healthy sources like grass fed butter, olive oil, and Brain Octane Oil [concentrated MCT oil] help shuttle nutrients into your cells and keep cell membranes working at top speed. Protein and collagen from grass-fed and pastured animals provide the amino acid building blocks that keep your skin plump and your hair and nails strong.”8
    Key supplements also kick in nutrients you can't always get through your diet, including:

    • Collagen peptides, which help repair your skin as well as your hair and nails, plus it treats leaky gut.9
    • Vitamin C helps your body synthesize new collagen and protects your skin from excess sun rays, inflammation and oxidative stress.10
    • Glutathione makes its own antioxidants, but also helps your body rid itself of toxins, which discourages acne.11
    • Resveratrol contains polyphenols that are worth their weight in gold for protecting you from signs of aging. That also goes for your skin, as they also help protect against excessive sun damage.12
    • Caffeine reduces inflammation and calms redness, increases your circulation and repairs sun damage, as well as your DNA.13 While I don't recommend taking a caffeine supplement, organic black, shade-grown coffee is one potential source.
    It may sound too easy, but simple steps like these can balance your pH and help move food through your colon to maintain regular bowel movements, which also positively affects how you feel and how you look, including your skin.

    Healthy Way To Make Smoothies

    Smoothies can be a quick and convenient way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet every day and are especially great after a workout or for people with gut issues who have a hard time absorbing nutrients.
    While I’m more of a fan of eating whole, nutrient-rich foods rather than liquid meals, smoothies have their place. But not just any smoothie!
    Most smoothies have WAY too much sugar. Take a break from the sugar-laden fruits like bananas, mango, and papaya. Stick to low-sugar berries, rich greens and avocados instead. Your body will get the nutrients it needs to remove toxins, boost weight loss, and help to strengthen your immune system, minus the blood sugar spike that comes alongside most smoothie recipes.

    Smoothies: A Safe Way to Help Cleanse Your Body

    Smoothies help cleanse your body naturally, unlike most of the juice cleanses and detoxes we see everywhere these days.
    If you’ve tried one of these drastic cleanses, I’m guessing you probably had a hard time sticking to it.
    Long-term cleanses can lead to muscle breakdown and vitamin deficiencies, and cause diarrhea and/or constipation. Plus, there’s not much point to it, since cleansing your body should be done on a daily basis through food and lifestyle habits.
    Supporting your liver with a cleanse can be beneficial–BUT only if you’re eating a diet consisting of fresh vegetables, quality meats, healthy fats, low-sugar fruit, etc.
    Detoxes and cleanses can be dangerous and should be done under the guidance of an expert, such as a naturopath, since there are different phases to a detox. If too many toxins are released at once and the body can’t handle it, you could end up feeling pretty horrible.
    If you’re new to making smoothies, here’s how to get started.

    Smoothie Basics

    • Liquid (about a cup), such as water, unsweetened coconut milk or nut milk (check ingredients), kefir or yogurt, if you tolerate dairy (make your own with raw milk, if you can find it).
    • Fruit (about 1/2 – 1 cup), preferably low sugar types such as berries or green apples.
    • Greens (1 – 2 cups), such as kale, spinach, zucchini, lettuce, cucumber, cilantro, or parsley. (If you follow The Bulletproof Diet and are concerned about plant toxins, lightly steam and cool kale and spinach first.)
    • Healthy fat, such as nuts or nut butter, coconut oil or MCT oil, pastured eggs, or avocado. Fat slows down the sugar spikes you can get from smoothies and helps you feel full longer.
    • Protein powder, especially if your smoothie is a meal replacement. Unfortunately, most protein powders aren’t great quality. Here’s some I recommend: grass-fed collagen and whey protein powders, or this one. Or a vegan powder. Many people like the brand Vital Proteins and Dr. Josh Axe makes a good line of bone broth protein powders.
    • Upgrades, such as ginger, hemp seeds, cacao, aloe vera, Goji berries, maca, turmeric,cinnamon, and matcha.

    Smoothie Tips

    • Be sure to chew your smoothie. Moving your jaw activates enzymes in your mouth and starts the digestive process so you can absorb all the nutrients. Chewing also releases hormones that help you feel full. Chewing is especially important for people who have digestive problems–you don’t want your smoothie to ferment in your gut and cause more digestive issues. One way to remind yourself to chew it is to add crunchy toppings such as cacao nibs, unsweetened shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, or healthy granola.
    • One smoothie a day is sufficient (I like them for breakfast or a snack).
    • Keep in mind that smoothies are not necessarily low calorie, so go easy on what you add to them.
    • Many people like to add ice, but cold drinks can stop the digestive process, so you might just want to add a couple of cubes if you like your smoothies cold.
    Here’s a couple of low-sugar smoothie options to incorporate on a daily basis anytime you need a quick energy boost! (Add a scoop of protein powder if you’re using as a meal replacement.)

    Green Magic Smoothie

    • 1 cup coconut milk, nut milk or water
    • 2 cups spinach
    • ½ avocado
    • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
    • 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder

    Wellness 101 Smoothie

    • 1 cup coconut milk, nut milk or water
    • 2 cups spinach
    • ½ avocado
    • ½ orange, peeled
    • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
    • Dash of cinnamon
    For both smoothies, simply add all ingredients to your blender and pulse until smooth and creamy. Try to drink them right away as these fresh and natural smoothies don’t last too long in the fridge.
