The human ego loves to be in control and knowing what the outcomes of a situation are likely to be. This means, mentally, we find it very difficult living in periods of uncertainty such as what we are currently experiencing. Along with this, the bombardment of news we are receiving daily can cause a forced state of anxiety and stress.
Keeping our mind at ease is very important during this period. Exercise and mindfulness are key, but Evergreen Healthfoods also has supplements that could be very helpful over the coming weeks.
