How To Fight Stress

Stress & Poor Eating Habits

When we get to stressed, we will usually
make poor food choices that will actually
produce stress and cause multiple other problems. To get
the most of your healthy eating and avoid stress,
follow these simple tips.

Make A Healthy Breakfast

Even though you may think you aren’t hungry,
you need to eat something. Skipping breakfast
makes it harder to maintain the proper blood and
sugar levels during the day, so you should always
eat something.

Pack Healthy Snacks Everywhere

Keeping some protein rich snacks in your car,
office, or pocket book will help you avoid blood
sugar level dips, the accompanying mood swings, and
the fatigue. Trail mix, granola bars, and energy
bars all have the nutrients you need.

Healthy Munchies

If you like to munch when you’re stressed out,
you can replace chips or other non healthy foods
with carrot sticks, celery sticks, or even
sunflower seeds.

Pack A Lunch

Although a lot of people prefer to eat fast food
for lunch, you can save a lot of money and actually
eat healthier if you take a few minutes and pack
a lunch at home. Even if you only do this a few
times a week, you’ll see a much better improvement
over eating out.

Shop Healthy & Keep Your Home Stocked

As important as it is to get the bad food out of
your house, it’s even more important to get the good
food in! The best way to do this is to plan a menu
of healthy meals at snacks at the beginning of the
week, list the ingedients you need, then go shop
for it. This way, you’ll know what you want when
you need it and you won’t have to stress over what
to eat.
