Six ways to say so long to stress
From time to time everyone will feel stressed, so it is important to have coping mechanisms in place to ensure you don't feel down for long.
Here are six ways to say so long to stress.
To combat stress, the most important thing is to reverse the body's response to situations and breathing exercises are key to this. Take between five and ten deep breaths with your eyes closed. Breathe through the ribcage and exhale through the mouth. By the end of these exercises, you are bound to feel more relaxed.
One of the main causes of stress is not getting enough sleep, so if you find yourself experiencing anxiety on a regular basis you may be sleep deprived.
Set a regular bed time and try to get seven hours rest each night. After a couple of weeks your body will be in a routine and you should notice the benefits for your mood.
Physical activity is a brilliant way to combat stress, especially cardio exercise. Not only does this allow you to channel frustration and tire your body out so you can sleep easier, exercise releases endorphins, which boost mood. What's more, you are effectively replacing your negative thoughts with positive ones about how the activity is making you healthier.
This super drink contains L-theanine, which promotes relaxation and works to counteract the stimulating affects of caffeine. Therefore, instead of hyping the body up, which increases stress levels, it has a calming effect. Try drinking green tea in the morning and evening to frame your day with relaxation.
When we're stressed we carry a lot of it in our muscles, causing discomfort and augmenting feelings of anxiety. Massage can relieve this by releasing tension from the body.
Andrea Preston, massage expert and founder of The Treatment Room, explained: "All massage treatments are beneficial for those in high-stress jobs, particularly in the current climate, where the pressure is on more than ever.
"Taking one hour out for yourself, once a month, to invest in your own health and wellbeing, is highly recommended."
Containing lots of potassium, bananas are a great boost if you're feeling stressed or tired. Taking time out to enjoy this snack can also help you calm down.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Anoni, Ashwagandha is a stress reliever and controls the production of stress-inducing hormones. High production of cortisol can compromise the production of progesterone. When Ashwagandha controls cortisol, it automatically stabilises progesterone production levels. Hope this helps :)
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello, As Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, there are numerous ways that it can help you depending on what time of day it is. Most people like to use Ashwagandha in the morning as it has some benefits when it comes to naturally reducing anxiety which could help throughout the day. However, others take it at night to help with sleep. If you are having difficulty sleeping, take it before bed. Otherwise, it does not matter at what time of day you take it as long as you are consistent from day to day.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Debbie, There is 340 mg of herb per capsule in our Ashwagandha. We usually recommend 2 capsules a day which are equivalent to 680mg. It is possible to take up to 1200mg daily, but only over short periods, so we prefer to stay well within the limits of safety, while still dosing enough to see the benefits. We always recommend to discuss taking the supplement with your GP before hand if you'd like to increase dosages. I hope this helps :)
