Stress Relief….Eating Peaches

I have been reading a lot about stress relief. One way to ease stress suggested by several websites sounded intriguing to me so I thought I would give it a try.   Eating Peaches.

I went online to view the research and here is what I found.

Peaches have been called the fruit of calmness.

One site said eating peaches could relieve stress and fatigue.

“Peaches contain a natural sedative which can help to reduce stress and anxiety and which can also help you to relax before bed.”


As luck would have it the NC State Farmers Market was having a Peach Day.  Stephanie and I decided to go.  Peach Day Post

Readers Digest tell us that Blueberries and peaches contain nutrients that relieve stress and have a calming effect.”

Yummy peach ice-cream.

You can head over to a site called 1800 Remedies where they share “The Health Benefits of Peaches”.  Here is one thing they said on their site…”Peaches are known to be rich in anti-stress properties that help in providing an immediate relief from stress and anxiety levels.”

As I was working on this post I found I had a craving for peaches.  Sadly there were no peaches to be found in my house.  Then I remembered….”I do have peaches”

I hope you are feeling stress-free today.  If stressed or not eating peaches sure can’t hurt.  Oh, and the Refreshing Bubbly left me feeling amazingly calm:-)

If you have any stress relief techniques, drop me a line and let me know what works for you.

Have a happy stress free day!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
