Have you ever felt like your nerves were frazzled beyond repair? Like when you hear a loud noise and a shock of electricity goes through your body? You feel tired, stressed and like every cell in your body is shot!
When your body is under a lot of stress for a long period of time your body starts to break down. Our sensitive and intricate nervous system is one of the first things to go down. If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety then you know what this feels like. It’s awful.
As a mom you have no patience for the people you love the most. You might snap more easily, you have a hard time unwinding at night and you might wake up in the middle of the night and have a lot of trouble going back to sleep.
Did you know that food is a powerful way to bring your body back into balance?
Foods nourish every single system of your body.
Food is a powerful thing, especially when you’re health is suffering.
Let’s talk about 10 foods you should turn to when you’re feeling frazzled. The following foods are full of essential nutrients like B vitamins, magnesium and healthy fats that are so calming to your nervous system.
Top 10 Foods To Nourish Your Nervous System:
- Leafy greens (drink at least 2 cups of green smoothie a day)
- Avocados (hello healthy fats!)
- Sweet potatoes (packed with B vitamins)
- Dark Chocolate (loaded with magnesium)
- Salmon (rich in omega-3s)
