This last year has seen it's share of stressful situations. Most of us have had to adjust normal routines to accommodate changes in society due to covid, work, family, etc. Frankly, we're all due for a little bit of 'normal'. How do we deal with the stress though? What are some of the strategies we can use to defeat stress and stay healthy?
Like most things in life, each individual deals with issues in a different way. What works for one person, may not work for someone else. Here are a few things you can try when you feel stress creeping up on you:
1. Walk - A simple walk down the road can help relieve stress. Exercise is a vital component and getting a little bit of nature doesn't hurt either.
2. Laugh - It's not always easy to find humor in a day, but as they say, "laughter is the best medicine". If you don't know where to find the 'funny', it's easy enough to stand in front of a mirror and make faces at yourself until you're laughing hysterically. This really works!
3. Eat Healthy - Ancestral diets have been shown to improve our hormonal balance. Good nutrition and hormones play a critical role in tension and stress management. Omega-3 Fats and B-Vitamins from seafood, grass-fed and pasture raised proteins are essential for stress & mood management.
Others will get relief from music, service projects, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, breathing exercises or something else entirely. Scott Mendelson has some excellent advice for defeating stress in this week's Beat Stress to Burn Fat article. If you want to learn more about how hormones relate to our health, read Kelley Herring's article about Keto Cycling and Optimizing Your Hormones.

However, due to extreme weather in some parts of the country, FedEx is experiencing delays in routing some packages.
The crucial FedEx hub in Memphis has experienced a complete standstill of air logistics caused by ice. Orders were stored in vans and airplanes in freezing temperatures waiting for shipping to resume. While we never wish for orders to be delayed, one positive of freezing temperatures is that your in-route orders have been stored in Mother Nature's natural freezer. If your order has been delayed, please receive it when it arrives. Check the contents. If everything is cold to the touch, it's perfectly fine to consume or put in the freezer for later. If it's warm, please contact us immediately. We will never leave a customer at a loss.
Product Feature | What Is Brisket?
With St. Patrick's Day on the way, we thought it appropriate to share some Brisket Basics. Why are US Wellness Briskets & Corned Beef Special? All of our beef is grass-fed and grass-finished, raised sustainably with humane farming practices. We use NO pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, GMO's or any other junk. Our Corned Beef Flat Irons and Briskets will not have the typical bright pink coloring as those you may be accustomed to. That's because our brine is all-natural with no added nitrates or nitrites. These additives are what gives Corned Beef the artificial bright pink color. If you like the bright pink and want to make your own Brisket, try adding beet juice to your recipe.
