Life's challenges might increase stress. Diet can often affect stress levels. Selecting certain meals during stressful times may reduce stress and promote well-being.
Omega-3s: Eat flaxseeds and walnuts to increase omega-3 consumption, which lowers cortisol and calms you.
Foods High in Magnesium: Spinach, pumpkin seeds, and almonds are magnesium-rich foods that relax muscles and calm the nervous system.
Complex Carb: Complex carbs like whole grains (quinoa, brown rice) help produce serotonin, a mood-regulating neurotransmitter that decreases stress.
Antioxidant- Rich Berries: Antioxidant-rich blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries reduce chronic stress-related oxidative stress and inflammation.
Drink green tea: L-theanine, a relaxing amino acid, reduces tension and improves focus.
