Stress is an inevitable part of the daily grind in today’s busy world. You cope with life, working harder and faster only to realize you’ve come to a point where you feel exhausted and overwhelmed with your daily routine. Fatigue and burnout on a daily basis can cause difficulties in mood and rest. In the long run, these also become reasons for health issues such as coronary disease, increased cardiovascular risk, and other chronic diseases. Good news is, it’s never too late to start preventing or alleviating burnout and fatigue to become healthier. You just have to start today!

•    Manage stress and prevent daily exhaustion with mood enhancing food rich in tyrosine. Tyrosine is an amino acid responsible for the production of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine – brain chemicals that affect mood and enhance focus. The body can make tyrosine but under stress, it may not be able to produce enough. Tyrosine-rich food includes fish, chicken, turkey and dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. It can also be found in almonds, avocados, bananas, lima beans, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds. Magnesium is another natural stress management nutrient. It helps in balancing the cortisol – stress hormone. Add magnesium rich food such as Swiss chard, spinach, kale, salmon, mackerel, tuna, avocado, banana, nuts, and seeds to your daily diet to help you cope with stress.

•    Identify the causes of stress in your life. When you have a clearer understanding of what is causing your stress you are more likely to be able to develop an effective plan to tackle the issue.

 ***

•    Take a few minutes every day to rest your mind, whether it’s spending time away from distractions, going to bed early, trying yoga, meditation, or relaxation exercises. This can help you reduce stress and increase your immune functioning.

 ***

•    Build relationships. Relationships can help relieve stress because friends, family, and loved ones can listen, provide practical advice, a fresh perspective, or just be the support that you need at the moment.

 ***

•    Music is a great source of pleasure as it can relax your nerves, helping you focus and increase the body’s natural production of energy. It’s been proven that musical notes can actually put you in a state of happiness or bliss. Listen to inspiring and motivational music to boost your mood and help you focus.
