Stress is everywhere at the moment. When you are nervous, suffering from panic attacks, stress or depression, there are relatively simple changes that you can make in life to improve the situation. I'm not talking about certain remedies or solutions to complex anxiety and depression, I'm talking about ways to get your physical body to get the best results and look at your performance.
Healthy mind is equal to health and vice versa. You are more likely to feel better after relaxing your mind and you are more likely to feel better spiritually and emotionally after spending time looking after your body. There are some simple steps you can take to improve your physical well-being.
Below we will review some of the methods. Of course, you should always consult your doctor before making any major lifestyle changes.
Your body needs more than fifty essential nutrients to cope with stress. They mainly come from these four categories:
- Vitamin A (retinol), B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, E, K (this is not an exhaustive list).
- Essential fatty acids (especially linoleic acid omega-6)
- Essential amino acids (eg tryptophan, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, ontwikkelinin, valine, leucine, isoleucine)
- mineral, for example, Chrome, iodine, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, sulfur (this is not an exhaustive list).
And as it is not enough to score, the body also needs adequate antioxidants (which can help prevent cancer and promote longevity), plant sterol (to prevent cholesterol and other actions ) and bioflavonoids (which are believed to help blood flow and increase vitamin c through cellular absorption).
You can spend a lot of time trying to extract a diet that contained all of the above and at the end it was probably more emphasis, anxiety and depression than you were when you started (and much worse!). But luckily, it's an easy way to make sure your diet gives the lion what you need.
Eat some fresh fruits (especially citrus) and veg daily, separate from eating high-fat foods or foods rich in simple carbohydrates. Drink a splash of red wine and try to develop a taste for green tea. And if you want sweet treatment, take a dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa fat.
Take a filling in cod liver oil every day. Or use flaxseed oil if you are a vegetarian.
Add plenty of vitamins and minerals daily.
Eat as much whole wheat, whole-grain, fresh, unfinished food as possible.
When we focus or feel anxious or little of our food quality tends to diminish. Sugar rich foods and simple carbohydrates like pizzas and pasta seem to be tempting. We also look at foods that give us short-term satisfaction like salty foods. We tend to eat faster, clogging our gastrointestinal tract and make us feel worse later. And of course, we can not disturb the preparation of all the healthy foods, so little nutrients and comfortable foods seem much more attractive.
It's at exactly this time you need to make an effort to eat better. Eating better will not immediately make us feel better. Broadly speaking, a good diet does not eliminate anxiety or depression or solve problems related to stress. But eating better can do one important role: it can make sure that we do not get worse at fast-food. Long-term, good diet will build us up so we can see life in a relaxed and controlled manner.
Alcohol, coffee, sugar and simple carbohydrates are the most harmful in terms of diet. It is also important to chew food and eat at a more slow, slow pace. Eating quickly causes dyspepsia and all sorts of unpleasant symptoms of asymptomatic bowel disease.
Apart from diet, there are other steps you can take to improve overall well-being. We can take measures to reduce our exposure to toxins by filtering water, taking time from the air from air pollution, using natural soaps and organic foods. Think about the number of chemicals around you and the release of electronic devices like mobile phones and computer displays.
Get used to using natural herbal oils, massage and exercise regularly. Workout may not help with anxiety and depression, it definitely reduces stress and contributes to relaxing sleep.
New hairdressing and changing clothes can go some way to improve your self-esteem and enable you to deal with more stringent questions of life.
One last word of the Council. Do not focus on yourself by trying to change your entire life at once.
Take a step by step and allow yourself to get used to it.
