Five ways to reduce stress

Get rid of a stressed up life style

GET UP AND GET OUT:

Based on a recent research conducted by an Australian team, it was concluded that people whose work style demands in excess of 6 hours chair time a day are 68 percent increasingly likely to end up corpulent.

REWARD YOUR BODY:

Regular workout or loosening techniques like yoga and massage will keep cortisol to controllable levels by discharging beta-endorphins, brain chemicals that give you an appeasing effect.

START STRONG:

A recent study from Wales confirms that regular intake of breakfast cereal helps in decreasing stress by bettering physical and mental health. It further revealed that those who have the habit of eating cereal on a daily basis had lower cortisol levels.

DO NOT OVERWORK:

Keeping yourself engaged in work overtime may lead to increased chances of getting obese as a series of 12-hour work days result in increased levels of cortisol which triggers hunger.

INTAKE OF FISH:

When Swiss researchers added omega-3 fatty acids to men’s diet (fats present in fish), levels of cortisol were constant during stress tests. So, bring more salmon and tuna into your life.
