Horseman’s Health: Is Stress Stressing You Out? Natural Ways of Coping With Stress

ridersStress can wreak havoc on our health and the more stressed out we are, the harder it is to take the time to do the things we know help us in managing stress. Knowing we need to be dealing with stress often just leads to more stress. Well here are a few tips of quick and easy ways of coping with stress.

Eat Your Stress Away
This tip is simple because no matter what else is going on, you still have to eat. When dealing with lots of stress incorporate stress battling foods into your meals and snacks. That would include foods with magnesium, B vitamins and chlorophyll. The more stressed you are, the more your body uses up these stress relievers so just when you need them the most you don’t have any left. Nuts, seeds, leafy greens, halibut, oysters and AFA bluegreen algae added into your diet can help you replace them. The more stress you are under, the more your body also needs good proteins such as from soy, whole grains, lean meats or AFA bluegreen algae. If you hit the fast food restaurants or processed pre-made meals when you are stressed then consider adding this algae and sprouts supplement or this supplement¬† with nine different algae rich in minerals and phytonutrients for the extra nutrition you need for coping with stress.

These convenient packets [ESSENTIALS] have blue green algae for mental focus and physical energy, enzymes to support your digestion and help you get the most nutritional value out of the foods you eat and probiotics to keep your digestive system running smoothly, all ready packaged together to take with you on the run.

Exercise Your Stress Away
Exercise is a good way of managing stress, but when we’re crunched for time we often don’t take time to even go for a walk much less do a whole exercise routine. Find ways instead to work your exercise into your day. For example, park just a little further away and walk to where you are going, walk in place at the sink while washing dishes, take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator, or do leg lifts while cutting up veggies.

Breathe Your Stress Out
When we are overly stressed we don’t breathe as deeply or as often. Doing conscious breathing is one technique that can help relieve stress. Take just 3 minutes to breathe in and out deeply and it will pay off in reducing stress.

All of these solutions for coping with stress are fast, easy and won’t stress you out taking a lot of extra time. Give them a try and really start taking managing stress seriously. Stress can have so many detrimental effects on one’s health and make life just miserable. Life’s too short for that, so find what you can do now that works for you.
