Lately, stress and I have become best friends. Not really the type of friend I wanted in my inner circle, but she forced her way in. (yes stress is a she)
Being a part time carer for my beautiful mother who has Alzheimer's, running a small business with my husband, working part-time and trying to kick-start a freelance writing career - and run the family home - was the invitation that stress RSVP too.
She keeps me awake at night, at times gives me chest pains and consumes my every thought. She is very high maintenance. I wish she would find a new BFF.
Learning that Magnesium - among other things - can help relieve stress and sleep deprivation I started taking tablets before bed.
However, I found out today that mixing Magnesium citrate powder in water (hot or cold) and sipping it through the day works even better.
And get this - to amplify the benefits add a little sea salt as it includes 72 minerals! (1/4 teaspoon per litre)
Gosh, that and my lemon water, I will pee all day.
