Almost 85% of all American adults surveyed reported having some stress related issue. In these days of the pandemic, the issue only got worse. While we may take some comfort knowing that this happens to other people as well, the sheer number of people facing these issues is alarming. Sleep pattern and quality have significant role in breaking the stress induced cycle of fatigue. Certain foods play similar role and can provide an energy boost which also serve as a relief when feeling stresses.
- Sleep quality can have an effect on your mood and can cause you stress as well, as less sleep usually equals more stress.
- Try to limit the amount of highly processed food you take in and also add water and green tea to your diet to aid with relaxation.
- Try to create some time for you and shut off the outside world so that you don’t always have to be on and instead can learn to relax and enjoy your free time.
