Diet and nutrition affect your stress levels by increasing or decreasing the levels of hormones in your body.
- Drink a warm drink.
Sometimes the physical effects of food and drink play a greater role in our well being than the nutritional content. Naturally comforting, warm drinks help calm us down regardless of what they are.
- Eat carbohydrates.
Carbs increase our levels of serotonin, the chemical naturally found in our body that boosts our mood and reduces our stress levels.
- Tuck into avocados.
Naturally high in omega 3 fatty acids, these nutritional little powerhouses contain healthy amino acids that reduce stress and anxiety.
