I want to talk about stress and anxiety. These are two things I have been living with for quite some time and yet, I still tend to grab a hold of them each day.  Stress Defy is a heaven-sent product and helped me so much with my anxiety and stress! Just to be transparent, I am currently taking a break from it so that I can increase my appetite and get all of my calories in! One of the benefits of Stress Defy is its appetite control. It really helps people who need to suppress their appetite do so, like those who are in a cutting phase and trying to lose weight.

Back to my personal experience. . . 

In the beginning, my anxiety stemmed from having so many uncontrollable ideas go through my head at once, that I had to put my thoughts down on paper. This turned out to be my secret poetry book.

Later in life, I found the gym to be my “safe place.” If I ever felt anxious or overwhelmed, I would go to the gym and get a nice, solid lift in, maybe some cardio too. I made sure to keep myself busy. I would barely sleep, get up, workout, grocery shop, meal prep, eat, run errands and then go to work. This was my routine for a very, very long time. As you can see, there wasn’t much rest, stress management or self care included in the mix. 

Fast forward to the last few years…

Getting married, having a child and being a work from home mom has its own battles. In the midst of all of that, I lost my mother to ALS. Something I was both prepared and unprepared for. It has been a long journey these last 2.5 years. The adjustments that I have had to make have brought up my anxiousness once again, but differently this time.

Stress Defy from Protea was a supplement I wanted to try so badly and the first time I did, I immediately felt a difference! Noticing the change so quickly, I knew that this was something I had to share with anyone else going through any sort of mental health issues. Of course, make sure you consult with your Dr. before taking any supplements.

If you are looking for some way to battle stress and/or anxiety, Stress Defy is the way to go. I personally love what it does for my anxiety and stress! It also helps if you need a little extra something to help you control your eating habits!
