The Benefits Of Adaptogens For Improving Sleep And Reducing Stress

Deadlines are constantly bearing down on you, your friends are having meltdowns, the neighbors seem to be having a party every night, and, oh, you’re out of toilet paper. Meanwhile, your heart’s racing and you can’t focus even if your life depended on it. It seems like stress and sleeplessness are now constant companions. Before you reach for a comfort cronut or guzzle that fourth cup of coffee, there’s another way to deal with the pressure — adaptogens.

Adaptogens can help your body adapt to life’s most stressful times. These supplements contain herbs that aid the body in reacting to or recovering from both short- and long-term physical or mental stress. Some also boost immunity and overall well-being. Research shows adaptogens can combat fatigue, enhance mental performance, reduce depression and anxiety, and help you thrive rather than just struggle along.

Trump Signals Improving Health With Appearance For Supporters

US President Donald Trump waved at supporters from a motorcade Sunday on a short drive outside the hospital where he was being treated for Covid-19.

The outing came minutes after the president had announced “a surprise” for fans, and it appeared designed to personally take back the narrative on his improving health after a weekend of confused and contradictory messaging from the White House and Trump’s medical team.

Trump improving, could be discharged Monday: doctors

US President Donald Trump has “continued to improve” as he is treated for Covid-19, his doctors said Sunday, revealing he could be discharged as early as Monday.

His medical team said his oxygen levels had dropped twice briefly in recent days and he is being treated with steroids, but they gave an upbeat assessment of the 74-year-old president’s health and outlook.

“Since we spoke last, the president has continued to improve. As with any illness, there are frequent ups and downs over the course,” said Trump’s physician Sean Conley.

Conley said the president was flown to Walter Reed military medical center on Friday after a “rapid progression” of his illness, with his oxygen levels dropping worryingly low.
