The Age Of Anxiety

The Age Of Anxiety

Anxiety can often be overlooked or mistaken for another condition, and therefore undiagnosed, misunderstood, and psychologically swept under the carpet, while the Anxiety itself creates havoc in the nervous system of the body.  Catching the signs of anxiety early can mean the prevention of far more grave conditions.

Anxiety is a feeling that manifests in various ways, it can begin with your heart beating faster, usually in response to a stressful situation.  Another symptom, even more, common is your palms become sweaty as you’re confronted with a perceived overwhelming task or event.  Note the word ‘perceived’!  Everything in life comes back to perception.  How you respond to any given situation is directly related to your personal, private interpretation of that situation, ‘perception’.

The Power Of  A Garden To Heal

The Power Of A Garden To Heal

2020 has been more about the garden for me, which means not as much writing!  I was a bit guilty about it at first then a friend said to me, ‘you know your garden time is okay Annie because there are different ways to express, create and release, this year it’s the garden, and the garden has been your saviour.’

Niacin Why We Need It!

What do you know about Niacin?  Like most people, probably not much!  Niacin (Vitamin B3) is one of the most underrated players in the B Complex Vitamins. Your body gets niacin through food but also makes small amounts from the amino acid *Ltryptophan. Every part of your body needs Niacin to function properly.

As a supplement, niacin is vital, especially for ‘mental health’, balancing emotions, and dealing with good and bad news. Niacin may help lower cholesterol, ease arthritis, and boost brain function, among other benefits. Let’s focus on the brain function part first. As you are reading this, your comprehension is related to how much Niacin is circulating through your nervous system. Niacin is water-soluble, so your body doesn’t store it very well. This also means that your body can excrete excess amounts of the Niacin if it’s not needed. (more…)
