Nourishing Practices for Your Hormones
- Allow yourself time to rest and recover after heightened emotional situations (positive or negative)
- Sleep: If falling asleep is a problem, eat a small carbohydrate snack before bed. If waking up in the middle of the night is a problem, eat something high in fat and protein before bed.
- Exercise the way your body wants to- it doesn’t have to be intense! Walking and yoga are great stress-reducing, hormone-balancing ways to move your body.
