Reduce Stress Levels Through Food

You’re exhausted… wiped out… You’re absolutely not getting enough sleep at night. You’re overwhelmed and the kids aren’t making it any easier on you. Your brain is on overload. Let’s face it, you’re stressed out.
Most mornings before your feet even hit the ground you’re already thinking about packing lunches, who has their backpack? and did I throw that wet load of laundry into the dryer last night?!
Reading this will probably even cause your heart to start beating a little faster because you know it’s true.
So here’s the thing, most of us when we are stressed will most likely go for that tempting high carbohydrate & fatty comfort food. You know which ones I’m talking about… don’t make me go there. But while you might feel that you’re solving your stress and anxiety, it’s actually only a farce. That momentary feeling of relief is essentially doing more harm than good. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing more than I love than to dig into a chocolate cake! But sometimes you just need to listen to what your body needs and give it some help when it comes to de-stressing!

Take two deep breaths… come on, do it… breath in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out… and read on as your stress levels are about to fall into oblivion!

Research shows that what you eat can have a direct correlation to your stress levels. These are some of the foods you’re gonna wanna go for that will help reduce some of those levels. Read more »
