Avoiding C.A.T.S in times of stress 

⚠️ Caffeine, Alcohol, Tobacco, Sugars⚠️ 


Caffeine, Alcohol & Nicotine are the most widely used, legal psychotropic drugs around the world with processed sugars one of the most common food ingredients. 
They feel good at the time right but what goes up must come down.

Caffeine;
In high amounts is well known to increase the symptoms of anxiety and disrupt sleep patterns, this is said to be caused by higher cortisol secretion.

Alcohol;
Disrupts blood glucose and brain neurotransmitter levels. A 2011 study showed those who abused alcohol were 2-3 times more likely to suffer from an anxiety disorder.

Tobacco;
Nicotine receptors play a role in the pathways in the brain that are involved with stress responses and anxiety. Nicotine also increases blood pressure and heart rate which will ramp up the symptoms of anxiety in the long term.

Sugar;
It’s nothing new, excess simple sugar consumption is bad! The roller coaster of high blood sugar levels and dopamine release to insulin spikes and low blood sugar levels strengthens the theory that heavy sugar consumption is linked to an ever growing number of anxiety disorders.

Also, if you use a product that contains a lower percentage of alcohol (e.g., 70% alcohol) then you need to increase the amount of alcohol in the recipe or it won't be an effective disinfectant.
