Stress Proof Your Body

Stress as how we experience it, is not nice and is a known trigger for depression and it can also affect your physical health. So it’s very important to find out the cause and to minimise the effect they have.

Have That Little Extra

Studies have found that restricting your calorie intake can significantly increase cortisol levels. So don’t worry about that extra helping if you feel you haven’t had enough.

C You Later

Unfortunately stress tells your body to lose vitamin C from waste products. Research has been put in and it has found that taking a gram a day extra helped testosterone to cortisol ratio by 20% helping muscle building and recovery. Some brilliant sources of Vitamin C are oranges, kiwis, peppers, Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.

Having a To Do List For The Week

Stress causes loss of concentration and lack of concentration will unfortunately lead to people forgetting things even important ones at that. It has been a very profound and successful business and management aide as jobs in management are usually very stressful. Just sit down for 5 minutes and think about what the most important activities are that need to be done for the week. Then close your eyes almost meditating and visualise yourself doing those important activities, this will give you confidence and belief as you have already seen yourself do it. Planning your week is much better on your stress levels as it will lead to less disappointment and you can have enough time to change accordingly plus you will subconsciously allocate the time to each day.

Sleep The Stress Away

Early sleep at consistent times is one of the most vital keys to recovering from stress. Make sure you sleep in a blacked out room to stop you waking up early in a mood. Exercising in the morning will also help a lot in removing stress; it will give a sense of inner peace and calamity and raise your energy levels for the rest of the day. Some foods to consider eating more often are trout, yoghurt, salmon, eggs and chicken as these are all rich in Vitamin B12 which helps re-set the sleep-regulating circadian rhythm.
