Since 1992, Stress Awareness Month has been held yearly to “increase public awareness about both the causes and cures for our modern stress epidemic.” Millions of people suffer from stress — now more than ever. Stress is connected to so many mental and physical health issues, and it’s one of the biggest health problems of our generation.

At Amare, we know how important it is to remedy your stress-related concerns through the right nutrition. Our mental and physical health are connected, and it all starts with our gut. If our gut-brain axis is running efficiently, so is our capacity to handle stress and anxiety.

Are you dealing with stress? You’re not alone. Talk to someone about it and try some relaxation activities like yoga and guided meditation. And of course, make sure you’re getting good nutrition and taking the right supplements.

The more we all talk about stress-related concerns and share our stories, the more awareness we can bring to this vital issue, and the closer we get to a cure for this widespread epidemic.

“If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn’t ask me, I’d still have to say it.” –George Burns
