For Reducing Stress Naturally Health and Wellness Tips

Daily life is filled with more than enough reasons for stress and anxiety.

There’s work, family, personal projects (whenever you get around to them…), errands, various responsibilities, unexpected issues, special events, and…it all just gets to be a bit overwhelming. Add the state of the world on top of that, and you can end up with a pretty unhealthy amount of stress.


“We’re seeing significant stress transcending party lines,” reports APA CEP Arthur C. Evans Jr., Ph.D.

“The uncertainty and unpredictability tied to the future of our nation is affecting the health and well-being of many Americans in a way that feels unique to this period in recent history.”




When the body experiences high levels of stress, it inhibits organs such as the kidneys and liver from functioning correctly. Why does this matter? Because when that happens, it becomes harder to remove toxins from the body, which can result in a kind of toxic build up that causes all kinds of issues.

However, the good news is you can get proactive and start removing these toxins from your regular cycle of consumption to reduce the likelihood of this happening. It’s important to note, however, that our food supply can have its own potentially harmful toxins, so you need to be diligent if you want to remove them, and seek to eat as much organic food as possible.
Eating a variety of foods, regularly, and in the right amounts is the best formula for a healthy diet.

Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can lead to out-of-control hunger, often resulting in helpless overeating. Snacking between meals can help control hunger, but snacking should not replace proper meals. For snacks, we could choose yoghurt, a handful of fresh or dried fruits or vegetables (like carrot sticks), unsalted nuts, or perhaps some bread with cheese.

Paying attention to portion size will help us not to consume too much calories, and will allow us to eat all the foods we enjoy, without having to eliminate any.

Cooking the right amount makes it easier to not overeat.

Some reasonable serving sizes are: 100 g of meat; one medium piece of fruit; half a cup of raw pasta.
Using smaller plates helps with smaller servings.
Packaged foods, with calorie values on the pack, could aid portion control.
If eating out, we could share a portion with a friend.

Drink plenty of fluids

Adults need to drink at least 1.5 litres of fluid a day! Or more if it’s very hot or they are physically active. Water is the best source, of course, and we can use tap or mineral water, sparkling or non-sparkling, plain or flavoured. Fruit juices, tea, soft drinks, milk and other drinks, can all be okay – from time to time.

Maintain a healthy body weight

The right weight for each us depends on factors like our gender, height, age, and genes. Being affected by obesity and overweight increases the risks of a wide range of diseases, including diabetes, heart diseases, and cancer.

Excess body fat comes from eating more than we need. The extra calories can come from any caloric nutrient – protein, fat, carbohydrate, or alcohol, but fat is the most concentrated source of energy. Physical activity helps us spend the energy, and makes us feel good. The message is reasonably simple: if we are gaining weight, we need to eat less and be more active!

Gradual changes in our lifestyle are easier to maintain than major changes introduced all at once. For three days, we could write down the foods and drinks we consume throughout the day, and make a note of the amount of movement we made. It won’t be difficult to spot where we could improve:
