DID YOU KNOW that daily Rhodiola rosea extract supplements may boost mental speed and improve mental resources, according to a new study in Phytotherapy Research? Rhodiola enhanced a range of brain functions in healthy adults, including alertness, orientation, and executive attention. We have lauded the benefits of Rhodiola many times before. The primary use of the root herb has been for stress, mental and physical fatigue, depression, and to boost energy. We recently reported that Rhodiola may improve the symptoms of "burnout". Because it is a root, Rhodiola has been very well tolerated in most clients.

MAKE TIME FOR SELF CARE
Steve and Bonnie: For so many of us during the pandemic, taking care of family, and sometimes friends and coworkers, has left us with very little time to care for the person who often needs it the most - ourselves. Thankfully, a new survey finds more than seven in 10 Americans were more conscious of needing self-care in 2020. In fact, 70 percent plan to do more self-care in 2021 than they did in the previous year.
Conducted by OnePoll, three-quarters of Americans believe self-care can relieve stress and will try nearly anything to achieve this goal. Again, respondents cited relaxing activities like at-home spa rituals (40%) and exercising outdoors (28%) as the best stress relievers. Americans have also tried coloring books, cleaning, impromptu dance parties, and even laugh therapy to ease their 2020 tension.
Self-care does not all have to be stress related. It is just as important to make sure you carve out time for drinking enough fluid, taking your supplements, chew slowly during your meals, and breathe properly. All these are forms of self-care.
While self-care isn’t a new concept, the lessons learned over the past year emphasize the importance of prioritizing it. It seems Americans are getting the memo and are currently seeking wellness to feel happier and more productive.
