Pre-silly season mental health PSA: meet Two Islands mood support capsule

I’ve been having a bit of a rough time of late, and I know I’m not alone. There’s a bunch of upset and unrest swirling around as we barrel towards the end of the year, and when you add holiday season stress to the mix it can, for many, become a perfect storm.
Key is putting a plan in place when you feel yourself being pulled under, and for me that includes committing to daily movement/exercise, putting in consistent sauna time, eating well and taking supplements that can help support my mood. The latter brings me to my latest discovery, which comes from local brand Two Islands and goes by the name Happy Days. A carefully considered blend of science and nature, Happy Days was designed to be a feel-good formula to support a calm positive mood, emotional stability and ease feelings of stress and worry for brighter days. Calming, adaptogenic botanicals work to nourish the adrenals, supporting resilience and the body’s ability to cope with daily stress, as well as during times of overwhelm, unease or burnout.
Two Islands founder, Julia Matthews, knows that modern lives operate amongst varying levels of constant stress, and pressure. “Whether it's juggling work, family, and a social life, struggling to switch-off in a technology-first world, or simply feeling overwhelmed by never-ending news cycles, everyone feels some level of unease.”
In the short term, stress can leave us anxious, tearful and struggling to sleep. Over time, the impacts can be even more detrimental to our health (as a cancer survivor I can fully vouch for that impact – stress can be a killer). “Now more than ever it’s important to nurture your mental wellness every day, not just on the bad days,” says Julia, and I wholeheartedly agree.

So, the brand new Happy Days helps make self-care for the soul a non-negotiable, and it comes in the form of a fast-acting formula with clinically researched Bluenesse® Lemon Balm which has been proven to reduce cortisol, as well as regulate mood promoting neurotransmitters dopamine and GABA, in as little as 1-3 hours, reducing stress and anxiety to significantly improve mood when you need it most. Safr’Inside Saffron is another ingredient, which has been shown to reduce stress by up to 60 percent in as little as five days, and is the only encapsulated saffron extract shown to amplify serotonin, improving happiness levels and supporting mental wellbeing. It also has the likes of Ashwagandha and L-theanine in the mix to provide further nervous system support, and help calm emotional distress.
Whether your stress levels are due to significant life events or just running out of your favourite protein powder (me this morning when faced with an empty can of Two Islands own pea protein, ha ha!), Happy Days is available online now, and comes highly recommended.
