5 Healthy Ways to Relieve Stress

Stress is almost unavoidable in present time. We are always multitasking, looking after jobs, kids, families, bosses, the list is endless. These stress relieve techniques we are sharing here are quite helpful and will help you stay highly productive.

1. Get moving.
All forms of exercise, including yoga and walking, ease depression and help brain release feel-good chemicals that in turn relieve stress. Anything between forty-five minutes to an hour is calming and energizing for the mind and body both.

2. Reduce caffeine intake.
Consuming too much caffeine makes you more emotionally reactive to stress. Even in general, taking caffeine in the night time affect your sleep quality, which impacts stress levels.

3. Surround yourself with positive energy.
Spending time with positive people helps uplift the mood. Whereas, it is quite discouraging to be with negative people and surroundings. That induces stress in mind and body both and reduces your efficiency overall.

4. Take some quiet time.
Being in the present moment, connecting with your inner-self has tremendous benefits. Science has already been talking the power of silence and meditation. Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself -Zen Proverb.

5. Eat stress-busting foods.
Bananas have a very soothing effect on the body and provide potassium which helps to reduce blood pressure. Bananas also contain tryptophan, a protein that the body converts into serotonin. It also helps that they have natural sugars, which when combined with fiber, provide a delicious and instant energy boost.
