1) Eliminate the Stressors You Can
You may be so consumed with stress that it's difficult to think you can reduce it. Take time to evaluate your situation and find ways you can reduce stress. This may involve dropping a responsibility, asking for help, or relaxing your standards.
2) Good Nutrition
Stressors can trigger physical reactions in your body that make you crave foods like sugar, fat, or consume alcohol. Unfortunately, these foods can make stress worse in the short term and may cause health problems in the long term. Adding a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits to your diet can provide more physical energy and protect your heath, helping to reduce stress on a daily basis.
3) Protect Your Sleep
Loss of quality sleep can have a big impact on your overall stress levels. Too much daytime stress can affect your nighttime sleep, which ultimately affects your mood and cognition leading to more stress. Make quality sleep a priority to break the cycle of more stress.
