September 22nd marked the first day of Fall 2012. In the next couple of weeks we will be bringing you some fun, interesting and exciting fall tips. Let’s start off our Fall Extravaganza with a hot tip that comes from our friends at The Chicago Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation.
With the weather changing… within hours we can go from hot to cool… Our bodies need to re-calibrate our core temperatures…. Which is actually a physiological stress, and amps up our stress hormone output. Research has shown that sipping on Hot Apple Cider can soothe frazzled nerves within 6 minutes. The cider’s sweet aroma activates nerve clusters in our brains that help lull us into a tranquil state. Next time you are feeling the frazz…. reach for the cider… and watch as the stress melts away.
