Darth Vader’s dirty little secrets not-so-secret about stress – Day 4

Posted By Carine Dieude, Biostress Imagery LLC, Saturday, April 4, 2015

April is Stress Awareness Month, and IT IS TIME for you to DEAL WITH your stress. Have you been seduced by the dark side of its force, pushing and pushing your way through deadlines and demands? Learn to recognize the prices you are paying for it and how to positively cope with stress, helping yourself live better. 

Throughout April, I will share a daily dirty little secret about stress and a tip to banish it. 

Day 4: 

When dealing with stress, the body frequently craves precisely the foods that will exacerbate the condition most. While we often use food as a way to cope with a range of emotions, too often when faced with stressful scenarios, we're reaching for high-calorie and fat-laden disasters. They may temporary lead to higher levels of feel-good brain chemical serotonin and, at least temporarily, make us think we're beating the blues.

But searching for solace at the bottom of a pint of Ben & Jerry's, can, for obvious reasons, lead to weight gain, which is likely to only cause more stress. 

Tip of the day: 

Before you turn to your typical comfort foods (ref Stress reducing food), check out these natural stress-reducing healthy pick: 

1. Tea: green tea contains an amino acid called theanine, which has been linked to reducing anxiety and promoting sleep. 

2. Dark Chocolate: contains antioxidants called flavonoids, known for their relaxing properties. 

3. Fatty Fish: Salmon, tuna and other fish rich in omega 3s have been shown to ease a stressed mind. 

4. Oatmeal: carbs naturally boost your mood by kick-starting serotonin production in the brain. 

5. Leafy Greens: contain Magnesium, a mineral crucial to your body running smoothly, helps muscles relax and also calms the nerves. 

6. Citrus Fruits: vitamin C helped people bounce back more easily from a stressful situation.

 

May the Force be with you!
