Working out can temporarily make you forget the stress from the workplace and stimulate happy hormone as well as rejuvenate the body.
Good Food and Sleep
One of the best natural remedies from stress is to nourish your body with good food as well as having enough sleep. Your body will be able to handle the stress better and maybe prevent an illness that comes with it. When you are stress, the body craves carbohydrate, sugar, and food with high in fat more than usual therefore in order to reduce the cravings, perhaps try to pick the carbs that have more fibers such as corn, taro, potatoes instead of sago milk tea. Eating dark chocolate, fish with lots of omega 3 or avocado in the right amount can also significantly reduce stress as well.
A strong mind can help overcome stress by building confidence and encouraging yourself that “you can do it”, understand a life that nothing is certain, sustainable, and not attach to the past or worry about the future can make you leave behind the stress, gossip from colleagues or boss’ discouraging words. Mindfulness training by meditation can also help contribute to our mental strength and make us more conscious.
