Over-eating for stress relief has proven to only increase stress with the feeling of regret and weight gain. There are healthy alternatives to combat stress before stress takes its toll on you.
Set aside relaxation time. Relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing activate the body’s relaxation response, a state of restfulness that is the opposite of the stress response.
Exercise regularly. Physical activity plays a key role in reducing and preventing the effects of stress. Nothing beats aerobic exercise for releasing pent-up stress and tension.
Eat a healthy diet. Well-nourished bodies are better prepared to cope with stress. Start your day with a healthy breakfast, reduce your caffeine and sugar intake, and cut back on alcohol and nicotine.
Get plenty of sleep. Feeling tired can increase stress by causing you to think irrationally. Keep your cool by getting a good night’s sleep. For help with sleep naturally – http://tinyurl.com/sleepzzzzzzzz if you are waking up between 2-4 am, it probably is due to stress.
