Relieve Stress By Eating Healthy

Healty eating is a great way to relieve stress.  If you find life is getting more stressful with a hectic lifestyle, watch the temptation to substitute good nutritious meals with quick fast-food items.  You may be tempted to eat a doughnut on the way to work in the morning.  After a hectic day at work, you may be tempted to swing by a fast food restaurant for a quick dinner. Late at night you may find comfort by indulging in snacks to lessen your nervous energy.

Emotional eating may seem like a comfort at the time, but over time you are likely to be eating wrong types of food and too much of them. Actually, eating more nutritious foods is a great source of stress relief.

Since stress robs your body of necessary vitamins and minerals, take a vitamin supplement rich in vitamins B and C.

Eating Healthy Tips to Relieve Stress

  1. Drink Plenty of Water. Drinking water helps rid your body of impurities.  Most people do not drink enough water.  A non active person needs ten 8-ounce glasses a day.
  2. Increase Your Calcium Intake.  Low fat dairy products such as yogurt are an excellent source of calcium and magnesium.  These two nutrients provide stress relief as they relax muscle fibres.
  3. Cut Back on Caffeine.  Consuming caffeine interferes with hormone levels in women and also increases the loss of calcium.  You can lower your reaction to stress and improve mental performance if you cut down on the amounts of caffeine you consume.
  4. Have Healthy Snacks Available. Try munching on carrot sticks or crisp fruits as an alternative to chips.  Include a few protein bars in your car or purse as an energy boost if your blood sugar level drops.
