Foods to manage stress
It can be difficult to remove stress from your day - but good nutrition can improve your body's response to stress.
When you are acutely stressed your breathing rate increases, sweating may occur, and muscles become tense - this is all very normal and part of the "fight and flight" response. The fight and flight response is acceptable in small amounts, but when stress becomes more chronic and part of everyday life the implications on our health are greater.
Often our nutrition resources are depleted when stressed, leading to greater anxiety, low energy, and reduced immunity. This article lists foods you should include in your diet to help manage stress.
