Eat Right, Avoid Wrong:
Avoid consuming caffeine in any way. Caffeine is a stimulant that increases adrenaline in the body, the very hormone you are looking to reduce. Avoid coffee (decaf is OK), colas, chocolate, and more than 2 cups of tea in a day. Along with this, meal consumption should also be monitored in order to maintain steady sugar level.
Therefore, eat small meals often a day instead of eating large meals after a long gap of time. Maintaining steady blood sugar levels is key to stabilizing mood. Ensure you have a small meal every 2-3 hours that contains protein. For example, a hard-boiled egg and lettuce, 10-12 almonds, a small can of tuna and brown rice.
Try to include herbs in your diet. Those that reduce the effects of stress on the body include Licorice, Siberian ginseng, rhodiola and withania. In picture Licorice roots powder (mulethi) which you can BUY
Work out of Stress:
Concentrate on your breathing pattern. The more anxious you become, breathing becomes shallower and higher in the chest. Consciously lengthen your breath, breathing deeper into the belly. Count to three on the in-breath, and four on the out-breath. Along with this breathing exercise, yoga is also known to be beneficial against stress problems. We provide you a few of those stress relieving yoga poses along with their benefits, which you may apply:
Child Pose (Balasana) – It is an effective yoga pose for relieving lower back pain, hip strain and shoulder and neck stiffness.
Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana) – It helps in preserving proper functioning of the nervous system by improving blood supply throughout the body.
Down Dog (AdhoMukhaSavasana)– It helps in improving bone density and preventing bone diseases such as osteoporosis in women.
Bridge Pose (SetuBandhaSarvangasana)– It helps in stretching the muscles of the back and the leg and is an effective exercise for toning the thighs and hips.

Talking to yourself during stress is very important as affirmations are positive, self-affirming messages to self. In the case of anxiety, calming and positive is required. Try “All will be well”, or “I always cope, just breathe and relax”.
In case, talking to yourself does not seem to work, you can always tell someone who cares like, calling your mum or a friend. Acknowledging you are finding a situation stressful, and being heard and understood by someone who cares for you, even if they can’t physically help, will reduce stress levels.
Seek help On Time:
If anxiety and stress has become a significant part your life, seek help from a psychologist or counselor, stress is their specialty. You don’t have to do this on your own. It is not a sign of weakness to seek help, as many stress patients often misinterpret. Slightest sign of stress or anxiety must not go unchecked. Proper diagnosis and medication is vital for a patient dealing stress.
So Stay happy, Stay fit and enjoy your life stress free.
