Stress is a Bitch: Here’s What to Do About Her

During midlife hormonal shifts you are more susceptible to negative effects of stress since you’ve got more sources… sleep disturbances, progesterone tanks, libido drops and intimacy with your best friend could be an issue, caught between anything from kindergarteners to adult children and aging parents.. you’ve got the perfect storm.

It’s definitely an obstacle to optimal energy and fitness. I’ve got expert help here today to help offer some new insights.

We’re going to dive into how and why you can prevent the fat storage that’s oh so much easier when you’re under stress, and the brain fog and aging acceleration we all want to avoid.

Stress has become so common in our modern Western world and no one knows it better than a Flipping 50 listener, let’s talk about some of the natural ways we can support ourselves.

 Questions we covered on this stress-busting episode:

  • What are some natural ways to support our bodies in times of stress? 
  • We’ve discussed adaptogens previously here on Flipping 50 but a good review of what they are and how they help is always good. What's the deal with "adaptogens"? 
  • There’s a term tossed around “functional mushrooms” and medicinal mushrooms is another… let’s define those and because this is really your secret power, enlighten us about how we might use these to our advantage.
  • Where do functional mushrooms fit into all of this?
