Tackling the Stress Monster

Tackling the Stress Monster

Happy almost holidays everyone!

As we approach the stress-mas… I mean Christmas holidays, here are a few handy tips and tricks to better help you deal with stress by reducing the stress hormone cortisol.

  1. Avoid caffeine, especially at night.
  2. Reduce sugar intake.
  3. Keep hydrated. Aim for at least 2 litres of water per day.
  4. Try eating (in moderation) the following foods; dark chocolate, bananas, pears, green tea.
  5. Create and follow a bedtime routine (reduce screen time, use aromatherapy, meditate and relax before bed etc…)
  6. Turn off all phones/electronic devices before bed and keep them outside of the bedroom when possible.
  7. Use relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, mindfulness, time away from screens and devices a.k.a. “quiet time”.
  8. Take up a hobby, such as gentle exercise (walking or yoga), painting or drawing, gardening.
  9. Take the time to do the things that help YOU to unwind, whatever they may be.
  10. Laughing and having fun. Do not underestimate the power of laughter!
  11. GENTLE daily exercise. (Rigorous exercise can increase cortisol levels so go for something gentle rather than a rum or boxing class).
  12. Take the time to nurture and invest in close relationships.
  13. Supplementation when appropriate (speak to your health care provider for natural supplements which can help reduce cortisol levels).

Wishing everyone a calm Christmas!

Yours in Health
