Chronic stress is a leading cause of illness and disease in modern society. Our hyperconnected always-switched-on world forces us into a state of perpetual stress. Stress has been shown to have severe negative effects on the brain and can even shrink it’s size. Reduced sex drive, increased blood pressure, inability to sleep, memory impairment and a host of other illnesses are all caused by chronic stress.

Nootropics and supplements can help. Nootropics like L-theanine and Aniracetam have helped me to combat my stress and live a life that’s more at ease with the world and my situation. Supplements like Magnesium oil can calm your nerves and help you achieve a deeper level of sleep. Magensium is an essential mineral that is quickly depleted when you are stressed. It’s important to replenish this mineral to keep it at optimum levels. Sleep is also a crucial player in managing stress.

**Where to find these supplements**

Be careful with the nootropics. There are only a handful of vendors I trust.

The magnesium oil can easily be found on Amazon – http://amzn.to/1QLyrkI
