4 Simple Steps to Stress Reduction in the Modern World

We don’t live in the same way that we used to. It wasn’t hard in our past to disassociate ourselves from work, get away from all the negativity in society, and focus on time to ourselves and loved ones. Today it is very difficult to do this because of social media, technology, and the desire to have a false sense of connection at all times. Strangely enough, this all leads to stress that you and I might not even realize!

The way to move beyond this in the modern world is simple, though it might not be easy. It will require some work for you to reduce your levels of stress. Here are 4 different ways that you can do this for yourself.

  1. Treat yourself – sometimes it might feel like the stress is overwhelming. We’ll provide a few options for you in the moment to get rid of that stress, but it is also useful to drop everything and treat yourself. Some people use a home treatment spa in order to get a spa level treatment that isn’t too expensive. It is a real treat to have this experience and yet it isn’t a huge financial burden.
  2. 10 deep breaths – once you are feeling the stress of the day, just take a step back and close your eyes. It isn’t really meditation, it is just slowing down! Take 10 deep breaths and see how you feel afterwards. More than likely, this is the best way for you to feel better in the quickest way possible.
  3. Nootropics – there are plenty of nootropic products that you can use to reduce your anxiety or stress. The vast majority of people who are using this method will realize that it isn’t sustainable, but it is a great way to improve your cognitive performance in the short term.
  4. Green tea – there are a few natural drinks that you can use in order to reduce your stress levels. One of them is green tea, which has L-theanine and a bunch of other compounds that can help you reduce stress. Other options include lemon balm, and kava tea, which are all useful ways to relax with a natural drink.

Are Unique Nootropic Stacks Like OptiMind Worth It?

Nootropics are not only popular from consumers these days, but also with business owners and entrepreneurs. Anything that can make a lot of money is going to get a lot of attention and with the products we find on the market, it is no wonder these businesses are making money. Many of the products are filled with poor quality ingredients or they just increase the price by hundreds of percent. Interestingly enough, one review of OptiMind showed that the drug was actually only a few cents more per serving than buying all the ingredients yourself.

This is one of the major changes in the industry which is a result of the fact that there are so many competitors these days. In order to stand out, these businesses not only need good products and marketing, but also more affordable products. This is the route that the OptiMind brand decided to go when they created their main flagship product. It is not the greatest quality of product, but it does come with a free trial and it seems safe so it is worth trying out for that reason.

Unique Nootropic Stacks

Sometimes there are other unique stacks that are more simple, to the point, but effective. For example, one stack combines CDP choline and alpha GPC, which are supposed to be the best two for giving your brain choline. The company that created this blend uses it specifically for people who are already taking nootropics like piracetam and aniracetam, but it is a useful tool to have the two ingredients in a single product.

The vast majority of people who are making changes in their lives are finding supplementation of some sort to help that process. If you are not doing this, then you are missing out on scientific revolutions for your body. The vast majority of people taking these kinds of drugs are going to be better off in the long run even if they cannot feel it now.

Unique blends are full of the positive ingredients that you need and if you become more knowledgeable and adept at researching, you can do even more to protect yourself and your family.

4 Reasons to Eat More Mushrooms

In any case, eating mushrooms is a healthy part of any diet and most people could go with eating more of them.musrooms

There are many different reasons to start eating more mushrooms if you do not already. Here are 4 of the main ones:

  2. Mushrooms are immune boosters – although your average mushroom might not be an immune booster, you can eat reish or chaga mushroom and see some tremendous benefits from these things. Most of the time, the immune boosting properties of mushrooms are the best natural resources you are going to find.
  3. Mushrooms are flavor enhancers – pretty much any flavor you add, mushrooms will give it enhancement. You might find that there are a lot of different flavors that go well with mushrooms and that’s because it has a neutral but positive flavor profile.

Nootropics for Advanced Players

Nootropics are very common and if you are drinking a coffee at any point, you are a beginner in the smart drug world. Congratulations on taking the adequate steps to improve your brain health and hopefully have a much better perspective on things when you work. The advanced people, however, sometimes want to go beyond the coffee and caffeine options in order to get the best results for their cognitive abilities.

One way that advanced players could really make a difference is to look for the more advanced nootropics that might be a little more experimental, but still can help to improve health in a safe and effective way. Here are some of the beginner nootropics that you can try:

  1. Advanced PlayersPhenylpiracetam – banned by the Olympic committee because it is so highly stimulating for the brain and body, this racetam family drug is a potent memory enhancer and stimulant. You’ll find that it is a great tool for getting high quality work done and improving your concentration without the crash of the caffeine or Adderall. You’ll also find that it builds tolerance so take it sparingly.
  2. Phenibut – there are plenty of people who swear by phenibut, but only for short periods of time. There are some stories about getting addicted and finding it hard to cycle off the drug. Definitely keep this in mind when you are testing out the nootropics for advanced players.
  3. Modafinil – this is one of the most popular advanced drugs that you’ll find. It is a prescription, but it is not as bad as if you were to use Adderall. That is really one of the most harmful drugs that you can use for improving your brain as it leaves you addicted and having a hard time doing work otherwise. Modafinil, on the other hand, is just a longer term pick me up.

 

Are Chips Ever Health Foods?

When someone who is considered health conscious makes a joke about unhealthy individuals, usually they conjure an image of a “couch potato”. This typically means someone who sits on the couch and eats potato chips, which is considered unhealthy and bad practice. While eating too much of anything is definitely a bad thing, is it possible for chips to be considered healthy in any circumstance?

chipsBelieve it or not, the answer is yes, but as usual it has an important caveat. The chips must be consumed in moderation to be considered a health food! If you are consuming chips of any kind, you might find yourself having health problems, but there are a few situations where you might find healthy chips.

Sweet potato chips can be an alternative that are useful for health conscious individuals. These chips are made with sweet potatoes, that often have a lot more nutrients than regular potatoes. The only problem with this is that they are usually cooked in fats and oils that are not at all healthy. The vegetable and canola oils are not good for anyone’s health! However, there are alternatives that use coconut oil in order to make the chips.

Some other options include avocado oil, but both this and coconut oil can get expensive. Even then, the oil is healthy but it is still high in calories (and not much protein). It is easy to finish an entire bag of chips even though they are healthy – that’s a lot of calories! In general, it is best practice to find some high quality chips (we suggest coconut oil and sweet potatoes), but make sure you eat only a few of them at a time.

There are alternatives, such as corn tortilla chips, but they can also be filled with unhealthy oils as well. Just make sure to read an ingredient deck and stay within moderation so that you can avoid any long term damage to your body.
