The Difference Between Stress, Worry, and Anxiety

[music] Hi, everyone.
How are we? ♪ Stress, anxiety, worry, oh, my ♪ ♪ Stress, anxiety, worry, oh, my ♪ Yeah. ♪ Lions, tigers, bears, oh, my ♪ you guys know that rhythm, right? That cycle of–
[hums] That’s what some people tell me
that they go through. How are you guys doing? It’s Dr. Nancy. Thank you so much
for tuning in today to my show. I hope you are having a wonderful
and fluid morning. And I certainly hope
that you aren’t feeling the ♪ stress, anxiety, and worry, oh, my ♪ on this beautiful morning. I hope it’s beautiful for you. The rain momentarily stopped here
in Southern California, heard that we were supposed
to have this atmospheric week-long rain, and it’s breaking just a little bit for us, because when rain makes the news,
you know, you got it really bad. Well, you know what,
the numbers really show out there that there’s a really good chance
that some of us do experience that stress, worry, anxiety, yet that cycle on a regular basis
if you’re not feeling it right now. You guys are just logging in. Let me know where
you are logging in from. Tell me if you do feel
that stress, anxiety, or you know, doubt, or fear,
whatever it is that worry– Tell me if you are experiencing that
or you do that from time to time. Hi, Reinaldo.
Good to see you this morning. We are absolutely,
absolutely stressed out. Modern world is super stressed out. We are a very anxious society,
now more than ever, right? Seems like no one is exempt. We are–a lot of us are walking
around really worried and anxious about something, right? Maybe you’re stressed out
about work or worried about your children
or your parents. Anxious about your health,
or maybe you’re worried about– “Honey, we got anymore this?” Maybe you’re worried
about the corona– something, right? Restocking your toiletries. Hey, Tony and Arlene.
Hello, how are you, guys? Francis, good to see you. The list goes on and on, right?
Worry and stress. The list goes on and on. Tell me why–why you guys– why you guys are experiencing
anxiety or stress. If you are, just put them
into the comments. What is causing you to feel this intensity, this feeling, the cycle? Maybe it’s all three:
the worry, the anxiety, the stress. Maybe you are literally
feeling all of that. Good morning, Ronald. Tell me in your comments
and then we’ll share. Yesterday–we’ll all share something. Yesterday, I went to pick up my son
for basketball, I was already late, because the person that’s supposed
to fix my internet– My internet was out
for a couple days, so I couldn’t hop on
and say hello to you guys. I’m like trying to go with the flow. Universe is saying, “Pause.” So I go pick up my son,
already late, 30 minutes late
to a 45-minute basketball practice. My daughter decides that she wants
to bring an open container of soup. I’m like, “Why would you do that?
Why would you do that?” Two minutes–not two minutes. Two seconds into the car,
she spills her whole soup, entire soup in her lap. Tear. She’s eight so, you know,
that’s gonna be catastrophic. So, anyway, while people are telling me
what stresses them out, I’m gonna tell you just a little bit
of a moment, a blip, in the life of me. That could have caused
something really great, right, if I just ruminated on, “You just spilled it
and I was late. And the person didn’t come and–” It could’ve, you know, domino effect. Arlene says, “I have PTSD.” Absolutely, things that traumatize you
in the past. the past is constantly coming up, lots and lots of things
that create stress. The media.
Suzi says, “The media,” right? Because the media– Yeah, the media can cause stress. They go out there and they’re like, “Go find a story that’s gonna
break our numbers.” So, yes, that can be
very stressful as well. Atilia is watching. Hello. Doc– “Good morning, Doc,” says Dave.
Hello, Dave from Florida. Russell is on. Hello. Alright, so we’re sharing lots of– lots of, you know, things in common. Larry, hello. That causes us to be not
our true healthy self, right? These are all valid reasons
to feel stressed, but it doesn’t need to rule your life. And that is like,
ultimately, I want to tell you. It doesn’t have to rule your life
or destroy your health. That’s a big thing. It’s what you think, kind of manifest
into physical symptoms of your body. I’m gonna be giving you
some really great tools very shortly for you to help deal
with those feelings. Yay-yay? [music] And dance break is over. I like to dance. All right. But like I said a minute ago, you are not alone,
you’re not alone. Hi, Heidi. Good to see you. You’re not alone. In fact, according
to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Over 40 million Americans
are currently suffering from some form of anxiety disorder. And over 75 percent of all Americans reported feeling seriously stressed
in the last 30 days. Now, here’s the problem. Stress, anxiety, and worry, while they all do have a place
in our world, in the world, in chronic form,
and I’m speaking chronically, chronic form, they can really cause
serious health issues. Like. what? Heart disease, digestive issues. How many of us have issues
in our tummy, right? Digestive issues, depression,
obesity, and diabetes, unless they are managed appropriately. And that’s what we’re going to talk about. Nina is on. Nina, welcome, welcome.
How are you? Yvonne’s on. Okay, so here’s a question
I’d like you all to answer. Think about the last time
you felt nervous or tense. Would you say
you are feeling worried, were you feeling stressed
or anxious? Worried, stress, or anxious. The last time that you felt
nervous or tense, what do you guys think? You guys write down
your answer here. Joe, hello from Virginia. Janette is on as well. What do you guys think? And if you are really feeling brave, then tell us and share
why you chose that answer, meaning why was anxiety– why was it stress,
why was it worry. Okay? And we’re gonna really go
through the differences because there are differences. There are differences that–
physical differences as well. Now, if you are struggling
with answering that last question, don’t beat yourself up. Stop hitting yourself.
Don’t beat yourself up. I’ve found that often a really tough
or challenging question, confronting question, it’s hard to answer, right,
especially in my practice. Now, we tend to lump all three,
anxiety, stress, and worry together, often using them
interchangeably, right? But it’s important to point out,
and this is what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna point out that they are all
distinctly very different, and the steps I’m going
to recommend you take to address each are also
distinctly very different. So, that is the focus of today’s
sweet Dr. Nancy Show talk. A deeper understanding
of the differences between worry, anxiety, and stress. I’m going to be sharing
a number of research-based– We love it.
Hey, Butch. We really love research-based, right? So, I’m going to be sharing
a number of research-based tips that have been proven
to help effectively manage all three. I’ve included a dietary
and other nutritional solutions that can have a profound effect
on how your body and your mind deal with anxiety, worry, and stress that we face every single day. So, make sure you stay tuned. And for those of us
that are logging in from a place that observed daylight savings time, you can just give a high-five
or thumbs up or heart, because we know
that turning back an hour, losing an hour out of my day,
my sleep, that in itself– or time changing if you’re traveling and there’s a time change,
that’s like physical. You can actually physically
feel that, right? Yes, I know.
I know. See all of the hearts?
We’re all like, “We lost. They just took it away from us.
They didn’t even tell us.” All right, let’s start with worry. We’re gonna start with worry. A Chinese philosopher
in the 8th century wrote this about worry. “If you can solve your problem,
then what is the need of worrying? And if you can’t solve it,
then what is the use of worrying?” So what is worry? We used to challenge my mom. We were like,
“Mom, Confucius said–” My mom is like a human computer. She can regurgitate
every single thing Confucius says, so sometimes we just mess
around with her. I used that quote
and she’s like, “No, I don’t think Confucius said that.” She’s very smart. Okay, so what is worry?
What is worry? We all know what it feels like, right? But have you ever really thought
about what worry actually is? Worry is what happens in your brain? In your brain, not in your body.
It happens in your brain. It’s more of a verbal,
it’s kind of a surface, you know. “Is it gonna rain today?
I wonder if it’s gonna rain today.” Very, very–
More surface, more surface. But it’s what happens when you dwell
on negative thoughts or the things that could go wrong
or the unknown. Okay. Worry. If you’ve read any psychology, you may have come across
that worry and guilt are useless emotions. How many of us have heard that? I know I’ve heard that
from a stretch class once or twice. Worry and guilt
are useless emotions. Leave them at the door,
be where you are. Worry is about the future, right? When you worry about something,
you’re kind of– You’re not present. You’re kind of thinking
about what could happen. You’re walking outside
with an umbrella, 365 days a year
just waiting for it to rain. Worry, right? Okay, we even know this. Okay, when we’re thinking
about worry, it lies in the future. Okay, pending or existing problems
or uncomfortable situations we’re like kind of dreading to face. Now, this stimulates your brain and it actually increases
problem-solving. Did you know that? Worrying increases problem-solving. It helps to develop a course of action
to solve a problem or an action to keep you safe. I’m worried that we might not have
enough of the toiletries. So, you know what,
a course of action. I’m going to go to my local Costco.
I’m gonna stock up. These are all good things, right? Yes, but– A big “but.” There’s a big “but” here. Worry becomes problematic when your thinking becomes
repetitive and obsessive. You’re ruminating now. You’re just over and over
like a broke record. That broken record that plays
over and over in your head. The same thoughts we think
about 90% of the time, day after day. Obsessive worrying causes you
to feel nervous and restless, and it makes it really hard to think
about anything else, other than what you’re worrying about which is the same thing
you’re worrying about an hour ago, a day ago, four years ago,
a decade ago, right? And all the worry is not
an actual physical reaction. We’re still on “worry” here. It can lead to unwanted
physical symptoms. What do you think it can lead to? I need somebody to help me scribe. Francisco is on.
Hello, Francisco. Nora says, “Worry is a liar.” That’s right, it is. Having an increased heart rate. Breathing rapidly
or even hyperventilating. Okay, these are unwanted
physical symptoms that if you worry chronically, might happen. Sweating, stomach and digestive issues, feeling weak or tired,
all of this. So, what can you do to help
with worry that’s chronic? Chronic worry. What can you do to help
with chronic worry to alleviate some of that? So many of us have that… Excuse me. …that constant voice,
that inside dialogue, the constant voice worry
in our heads talking to us so often that we sometimes can’t even hear
what it’s saying because it’s automatic
and the switch goes on. You wake up and– It’s that incessant chatter. But the first thing
I want you to do is this, I want you to pause,
I want you to listen, and I want you to be aware
of your worry. Somebody help me write that down. Pause and be aware of your worry
by listening. Listen to your inner voice and know what’s specifically contributing to you feeling this way. Know your trigger. Okay? Also, give yourself some time. give yourself a time limit,
a worry limit, And what I mean is give yourself– Study say, 15 to 20 minutes to process and worry about the problem,
and then move on. I also see some studies
saying that if you notice yourself going towards the same exact thing that you’re kind of worrying about
over and over again, immediately, have some tools
to immediately shift to a new topic. And even just shifting
as fast as you can for 20 seconds, 20 seconds of thinking
of something else, other than what you’re worrying about
is profound, and it will be able to change your habits of constantly worrying
about that one thing if you do that for a week. Okay? But if you need to really notice it
and validate it and process it, 15 to 20 minutes, spend that time on your worry subject, and then make a conscious
effort to move on. Now, I know that sounds really strange,
kind of far out there sometimes, but give it a try, and over time, you will see the more effort
that you take to redirect your focus, our brains are very smart,
very trainable, then the easier that habit gets. Next is I want you to do
something about it. And when you notice
yourself worrying, what are your next steps,
what to do now, right? What is your plan?
Remember the quote I just shared? “If you can solve your problem,
then what is the need of worrying? And if you can’t solve it,
then what is the use of worrying?” That applies here.
Absolutely. And lastly, I want you to go
and invest in a composition book or a journal, a journal. Write it down. I want you to write down
what’s causing you to worry. Really just to get it out
of your head onto paper. A lot of times that physical,
like release that you need to do, yeah, do it. Research has proven time and time again
that writing things down, especially about what you worry
for as little as five minutes, five minutes, write or doodle
whatever it is, helps to calm your mind down and ease those obsessive thoughts
that come with worry. Does that make sense? Butch says, “Mom said that.
Write it down.” That’s right, write it down.
Look it up, write it down. Absolutely, Butch.
Thank you for writing it down. Now, I’ve noticed that my worries
tend to hit me. When do your worries hit you? Some people say,
“Oh, when I’m showering, or when I’m sitting in traffic or…” I feel like sometimes
the worry hits me when I’m right about to go to sleep, or sometimes,
unfortunately, pretty rarely, in the middle of the night, right? And it wakes me up,
I’m like– [gasps] However, I know the problem for me
and for many of us is that once were awake, we often stay awake. We can’t go back to sleep, right? And that’s gonna lead
to terrible feelings the next day, grogginess and just exhaustion,
sheer exhaustion. It’s right here.
It sits in the front of your forehead. Give me a thumbs up
if you know what I’m talking about. Who are the ones that are just– you can get to sleep, sure, but to stay asleep all night, and then you kind of ruminate
and think about all the things that you start to worry. “I didn’t do this.
I haven’t done that.” Right? Okay, I see a couple hearts
coming through. So, I recommend that you keep this journal
next to your nightstand, your journal and your pen
next to your nightstand. Where’s my pen? And then, you just take
a couple seconds to jot it down, get your thoughts out,
get it out of your mind onto paper, it’ll be there in the morning, and then you get back to sleep. You let it go.
You go back to sleep. And I do this, it took me– When I started doing this,
it took me a little bit a while, I started actually writing it
in my dream journal. I would wake up
and you remember your dreams right when you wake up. So I started writing
my dreams down, and then I just turned my dream journal
into my worry journal. So, it’s a dual functioning. We’re on the budget here. So, it’s a dual functioning. So, just find a composition book
and really do that, right? And it makes it really palatable. You’ll actually be able to like
tangibly see it, quantify it, and be like, “Oh, okay.
It really helps me. And I can get some good quality sleep
and I feel better the next day. And if it makes you feel any better, research has to confirm that 85 percent
of what we worry about, I like to say even higher
than that, 90 percent. You know it never happens.
It never happens. It’s all in your head, literally. So, save your energy. ♪ Don’t worry, be happy ♪ as the song goes, all right? Let’s move on to stress. Worry is fun. Let’s move on to stress. Are we having fun yet? All right, somebody help me
write “stress.” I’m gonna take this card down. Okay, what is stress?
What is stress? ♪ Let’s talk about stress, baby ♪ Stress is your body’s response, an actual physical response to a stressor. It’s a reaction to something
that happens in your environment, maybe it’s a response to an argument
with your significant other, your spouse, your partner, your sister, your brother, your parents. Okay, a response. And that’s the feeling that you get, that physical feeling
when you’re actually reacting to what’s happening, okay? What you feel when you are waiting
for the results of a biopsy or, you know, if your child got
into a specific college. I don’t know.
Something more serious than that. Whatever the cause, it’s how your body responds
to external circumstances. And it’s not a new response. In fact, you can trace stress
all the way back to our prehistoric ancestors,
cavemen days. You see, back then,
our body’s natural response or stress response
to something in the environment often met the difference, a real difference
between life and death. It was even the diff– It was often the difference
between eating and being eaten. It’s like survival of the fittest. Survival of that day, right? Its like having children
and you’re like, “I don’t even know
if I can make it through the day.” I’m half kidding.
I’m half kidding. Love the little miracles. All right. It’s how we’ve evolved
as a species. Our body’s behavioral response
to stressors is still quite primitive. In fact, it hasn’t changed much at all. Upon sensing or perceiving
an external threat, whether it’s physical or mental
or emotional threat, our bodies still respond by releasing
huge doses of adrenaline. Du-Du-Du-Du-Du. Right? And then your heartbeat starts going– And your cortisol, adrenaline,
it’s flooded into our bodies. I’m sure you guys all heard
fight or flight? How many of you guys
have heard fight or flight? Fight or flight. That’s what we are talking about here. Your heart, it starts to beat
and increase. Your blood pressure goes up.
Someone said blood pressure earlier. Your hands might get sweaty
or clammy. [panting] Your breathing starts getting
shallow and short or you might even hold your breath. And your body is preparing
to respond in a fight, huh, or a flight to save itself, meaning you might run away
in order to escape. Ah…
[chuckles] The velociraptors
or the saber-toothed tigers, more like that. Now, occasional day-to-day stress, typically, isn’t a problem for our health, but when this responses,
again, the norm– How many of us think
that we are chronically stressed? How many of you guys
are chronically stressed? You can just give a “me”
or a hand or heart. Say, “Yeah, I’ve got chronic stress. It doesn’t stop for me.
It’s one thing after the other.” Right? It’s chronic.
It’s all the time. And if this is you,
then it tends– It’s gonna lead
to serious health issues, including the increased risk
of heart disease, a weakened immune system. This year’s influenza,
through the roof. It’s the worst you can get. It really it really is
because of our chronic stress, chronic inflammation in the body, muscle and joint pain, all of it. So, what can you do to help
reduce your stress? There are a number of things. Now, this is like the “What can I do?” Because people want to know. Everywhere I go, people want to know,
“What now, Doc?” A number of things that you can do,
that’s the silver lining, I’m gonna recommend– I’m gonna tell–
I’m gonna suggest to you what I recommend to my clients, okay? I’m gonna talk about it. So, but it’s not the same
what I recommend for worry and stress and anxiety. They’re all different. When you are stressed,
when your body is stressed, I really encourage you to focus
on the things that you can control. These are things that you can choose
to react or not react to. We can control
how we react to a situation. We can’t control
necessarily all the time what’s happening
in our environment, right? Okay. And you can learn
to accept things as information instead of putting a label on it
and emotionally attached yourself to it. Something that’s happening, it’s just information that’s happening, instead of, “Oh, that person
was mad at me and get…” Okay, so trying to adjust and re– re-narrate the stories
behind the things that are happening
in front of us, okay? I know it’s a lot easier
said than done. I can sit here and say,
“Just, you know, just brush it off.” But these are things that
are very important for us, for our mental and physical health, and we got to start practicing
these habits in order for us to be healthiest. I also want you to keep in mind that everyone responds
to stress differently, what causes you to stress
might not cause someone else’s stress. It might not even be a blip,
not even a hiccup, an eyelash didn’t even flap, okay? Your neighbors–
Everybody– Everybody reacts differently. So, keep in mind that
that is a thing. It’s super important for you
not to compare your stress with anyone else’s stress. Don’t– You know what,
take the coronavirus for instance. Some people are really,
really affected by it, and other people are like,
“Oh, my god, everyone’s gone crazy. I haven’t even checked to see
this media yet.” Everyone has a different subset and set of reactions and stories
in their mind and stresses. So, just worry about your own, and don’t compare
and don’t judge other people’s stress. Don’t judge your own stress, okay? That’s really, really important. And I want to also keep in– I want you to keep in mind
that stress is a physical response. Your body is responding to something by releasing a ton
of adrenaline and cortisol, like I said. And that being said, one of the very best ways
to deal with stress– Where is it? Oh, is to exercise. I’m like, “I know
I brought props somewhere.” It’s to exercise. Whatever it is,
lift something heavy, carry it across the room,
go outside, be out of breath. You know what, I say move your body a lot,
I say that a lot, right? Move your body,
body movement, but I don’t think that’s enough, I want you to be out of breath. I want you to do something often
that takes your breath away in form of body movement. Go jog or run
or lift something, you know do something
that takes you out of breath for at least 20 minutes,
most days a week. Yay-yay? I’m really serious today. This is my serious face.
Be out of breath. Now, I can assure you that
that works. Study after study demonstrates
that at least 20 minutes, all you need, 20 minutes of exercise,
of being out of breath in order to consistently
and effectively reduce stress. It works. For an ideal stress relieving workout, I recommend that my clients
minimally exercise, be out of breath 20 to 25 minutes each and every day or at least most days of the week, most days of the week
at least four days. Go outside and climb some stairs or sit up from the ground up
and do a little hop at the end, or do something, you know
what takes you out of breath, okay? Equally important as the time
you spend exercising if you tip– If the exercise
is going to be effective, is going to be the type of exercise
that you pick. Well, any exercise is effective
and, typically, will reduce stress. Research has demonstrated
that certain types of exercises are more effective
at releasing stress than others. [breathes heavily] And yoga is one of those exercises. How many of us practice
yoga regularly? And when I say regularly,
you’ve been doing it for a while. Even if it’s one time a week, that’s regular if you’ve been doing it
for a while, right? Yoga has come a really long way
over the last few years and definitely a long way
over the last thousands of years. Yoga is recommended
for everyone nowadays, right? From kids, they have baby yoga, Mom’s just queuing
at their babies just like– They’ve got kids to senior yoga
and has really become an exercises that is available to everyone. So, please don’t get hung up
on what you might think yoga is, “I don’t have a yoga mat.
I’m not bendy and flexible. I can’t touch my toes
or put my leg around my head. I can’t do yoga. It’s just great for mental
and physical health. Anyone can do it. If you are breathing,
you can do yoga. It’s putting together,
breath, intentional breath, and body movement. Yoga, being very mindful,
being very intentional on what you’re doing. Now, the majority of those practicing yoga consistently report experiencing
significant reductions in stress after just starting yoga. Just even after starting yoga
because the benefits are immediate. You don’t need to become a hardcore yogi
to experience the benefits of yoga. Performing short simple yoga stretches is often just enough to start
to feel your legs till your stress subsides
and you mood lifts. I said legs because
I was thinking legs up the wall. It’s a really great one
to decrease stress immediately if you find that you are ruminating
ad you’re just really angry, this is really wonderful. You just get really, really close to a wall and you literally put your legs
up the wall, and that the inversion having
all of the blood kind of flow right back to the heart, it’s really calming
to the nervous central– the nervous system,
the central nervous system. Really great. And if you can’t do that, if you want something
where you’re not laying down, maybe just a forward fold,
a simple forward fold, where you’re hinging up the hips and you just dangle your neck free and you try to have your fingertips
reach the ground. I have a great exercise,
a series coming out. I’ll let you know
when that is coming up. But it has a lot of these stretches in it. It’s very, very powerful
if you are trying to alleviate, especially tension around your head
and your neck and your shoulders, your upper back,
your lower back, and also stress,
it helps with that as well. So, if worry is a mental response, and stress is a physical response, what is anxiety? Well, anxiety is actually the result of dealing with a combination
of worry and stress. Okay. It meets in the middle. With one major difference, however. Anxiety is very similar to stress and that your body creates
a physical response. But unlike stress,
there is no actual threat. Now, anxiety often occurs
when you assume something bad is going to happen,
like worry, but you have a physical response
like you experienced during real stress. Even when there is nothing
actually to worry, stress, or to be anxious about. Does that makes sense? All right, so in other words,
anxiety is an excessive focus on something that
might happen in the future, still living in the future. Worrying anxiety in the future,
resentment and doubt in the past. Let’s use this coronavirus again,
for example, ’cause, you know, it’s relative
and it’s now in the news. I don’t know why toilet paper
became the coronavirus thing. Okay, sure, it’s normal
to be concerned or worried about the coronavirus, but if you aren’t aware
of your worry, this worry can quickly lead to anxiety. You watch the news
and as you hear more and more about the spread of the virus, you continue to worry more and more
about what’s going, what’s going to happen,
the pandemic that’s gonna happen, or if you are going to contract it, right? And before you know and every time
you hear the word “coronavirus” or you hear someone coughing
or sneezing or clearing their throat, especially near you, your heart starts to race. You start looking around,
your adrenaline starts pumping, your palms start getting sweaty,
really uneasy now. Your body is physically responding to what your mind
is perceiving as a threat. Anyone feel this already? Even when the threat
possibly isn’t real or even present at the moment, that is anxiety. That is anxiety. Okay, fortunately, fortunately, there are
also several natural– I love this part. Natural effective treatment options
that have been shown to calm the symptoms of anxiety including exercise again. At the very, very top of my list
is exercise. But also some specific
deep breathing exercises. I want you to limit your sugar intake, limit your caffeine, limit your alcohol intake, and perhaps the most overlooked, but still a very important way
to reduce your anxiety is to address nutrient deficiencies. Can somebody write that down? Address nutrient deficiencies. Because there is and, in fact,
a very clear link between deficiencies
in specific vitamins and minerals, and not only anxiety,
but also in depression as well. Both. Hey, Tom.
Hey, JC, how are you? So, actually, that last point
is also true for worry and stress. One of the most common,
but also the most overlooked contributors to anxiety and stress and worry
are the deficiencies in– What do you guys think? B vitamins, magnesium, and zinc,
all three. Did you guys know that?
Can somebody write that down for me? If you are deficient
in these vitamins and minerals and most of us are deficient
in at least one, your biochemistry is affected, manifesting an increased
worry, stress, and anxiety. Did you know that? It’s absolutely, absolutely,
scientifically proven and true. In addition, where you get
your vitamins and minerals from also matters because if they are not food-based,
it must be food-based, if they are not food-based
and absorbable, absorbed well by your body, then you’re not going
to get the benefit you want, obviously, right? You want to get the right amount
of your vitamins and minerals from natural whole food, not synthetic food grade
or food equivalent sources that have such poor absorption rate that are less than five percent of what is actually going to go
into your body, and that’s what the research is saying that we’re actually getting
less than five percent if all of that other stuff
that I talked about, the food grade and the food equivalent
is not high. So, that’s why I recommend
throwing that traditional– I have a bottle of traditional–
traditional vitamins. These rock-hard tablets,
let me show you, this is a very popular traditional– Okay, very rock-hard,
you hear that? It’s rock-hard. You know how long it takes for this
to literally dissolve? I mean, I could have started this
at the beginning of the show. And by tomorrow,
it still be right there. And can you imagine
what’s doing in your body? It’s just sitting there. All right, so I just– You know these things are not– All of these vitamins
are not made the same. If it’s coming in this rock-hard tablet, then your body is not going to be able
to absorb the specific amounts, the right amount,
the therapeutic amount of the magnesium and the zinc that I just talked about, right? And the B vitamins. You need all of those
to help support good mental health, optimal mental health, including what’s gonna help
reduce the worry and lessen the symptoms associated
with stress and anxiety. Now, I use Smarter Nutrition’s
Smarter Multi. This is the female formulation.
This is the male’s. We have our own
because our bodies are different. Our needs are different. And not only does this Multi– And it opens up
and it comes in a little packs. Not only does this Multi ensure– Okay. Can you guys see that?
It comes in these little packs. Not only does it ensure
you are getting the exact and right amount of each vitamin
and mineral daily required to improve brain function and help regulate
your all-important neurotransmitters, and those are those little
chemical messengers that send messages and signals
from your brain throughout the body contribute to the reproduction
and production of specific hormones that contribute to stress and anxiety, and lessening of that. Let me open this up. Smarter Multi also knows– Okay, it comes in all of these.
I’ll show you what it is. Also knows that for it to be delivered into your body, you got to find your ingredients
from nature. It’s got to be sourced from nature. And that’s because Smarter Multi
sources all of its vitamins and minerals from real food,
organic natural fruits and vegetables, sources like fresh okra
and spearmint, and pumpkin seeds and– or pumpkin, and sunflower seeds,
sesame seeds, and dill, and plums, and broccoli, and peaches, and pears. See, it comes from this right here. And it’s super affordable. It really is different
from any other multi. Super, super affordable, less than a dollar a day, free shipping
if you add subscription. It is so great and it is so easy. If you want to learn more
about how Smarter Multi support your mental
and emotional health and your physical health, too, plus that great deal to get started, then all you have to do is make sure
you click on that link below. My friends at Smarter
have already placed it down there, so you can read about it
after the live, after the show. Oh, I want to show you
that it also comes in this mineral. So the reason why
it’s so absorbable because they use this mineral,
fine mineral powder, not this hard– So I’m gonna open it up. So what do you think
dissolves better in your body? This mineral powder here,
look at this. This mineral powder, see how it’s already starting to dissolve. All of that is being bioavailably sourced
and absorbed in your body or that thing. It’s like one of those
“Grow your own dinosaurs.” In three days, you come back, and there’s a little dinosaur sponge
sitting at the bottom with a– That’s what you’re taking. It’s a dinosaur
’cause it takes so long. All right. Oh, hey, Brad.
That’s okay. You have to go back and watch it.
Brad just joined. But we’re happy you’re here. All right, that’s all I have for today. Hopefully, I’ve given you something
to think about and the tools to take action. Remember–
Brad, this is what we talked about. Worry. We talked about worry,
stress, and anxiety and the differences,
and how to approach them, and how to alleviate them
from your body. Remember, worry happens
in your mind, okay? Stress happens in your body and anxiety happens both in your mind
and in your body. All three are distinctly different,
but if left unchecked, all three can contribute
to serious health issues over time. So, I’m just reading this really fast. Kat says, “Can you add it to smoothies
if you find it too large?” You know these are all
designed to intake, and then be digested
as it travels down. I really suggest that
the best way to do that is to take it in a pill form. But if you do find it too large, you can absolutely put it
into your smoothie, sure. But the best way to take it
is to swallow it, of course, to maximize the absorption. So, all three of those, if you are having them
in your body and in your mind and if you don’t address it,
if it’s left unchecked, it can really, really contribute
to serious health issues over time. But you can reduce
all three of these conditions by following the recommendations
that I provided today. And I want you to give
Smarter Multi a try, okay? It covers your nutritional deficiencies in an easy and important way, a good first step. Also, try some of those yoga poses
that I talked about. As always if you did love today’s show,
make sure that you send me and send your fellow Smarter family
hugs and hearts and high-fives. And share this video on your page to the people that you really think
could benefit from learning about the differences
of stress, anxiety, and worry. And if you know
that they might have these habits that this video could help them
alleviate some of, you know, their stress and worry
by some of the tools that I show, do that. And that’ll be your karma project
for the day, that’ll be your one good deed. Thank you so much for your hearts
and your thumbs up. Everything is coming through.
I really appreciate it. Randy, you’re welcome. Randy says he loves the product.
I’m so glad. Carol, thank you for sharing. So good to see you, guys. I hope that you are all well. And I’m sending lots of warm energy
and good love out there. I hope that you guys continue. I will be on 8:30 a.m.
Pacific Standard Time throughout the week, pending on things that– the stressors in my life,
that pop-up like my internet, not having it at all. So, we’ll fix this
and we’ll be back on. I hope you guys
are having a great day. Be well, take care. Bye-bye.
