Finding the perfect stress relief remedy can be difficult, especially if you don’t like taking over the counter medication or you want to decrease its intake. There are quite a number of easily accessible and affordable foods that help to relieve stress, some of which include:
Milk: Milk is a great source of vitamins b, protein, vitamin D and bone-building calcium, which help to relieve tense muscles. It is advised that you drink a glass of warm milk before you go to bed after you’ve had a stressful day, as it will help you have a well-relaxed sleep.
Yogurt: The potassium present in yogurt helps eradicate excess of sodium from our bodies. This helps to reduce excess blood pressure in the body.
Fatty Fish: Fish such as salmon, sardines, and tuna contain heart-healthy omega-3 fats that help manage the body’s adrenaline levels, to keep you calm and relaxed.
Avocado and banana: These two fruits are loaded with potassium, which is a vital mineral for keeping blood pressure low.
Chocolate: It’s okay to indulge in chocolates every now and then as research shows that dark chocolate may lower levels of stress hormones. Chocolate also contains sugar (a carbohydrate), so it releases mood-improving serotonin.
Tea: The next time you feel stressed out, calm your nerves with a cup of your favorite tea blend.
