Vital Nutrition’s Top Ten Stress Busting Ideas

Most of us live busy, hectic lifestyles, with little time to think about the impact this might have on our nutrition (or lack of it). Here’s Vital Nutrition’s top ten stress busting ideas…

  1. Drink green tea – a good source of l-theanine, to promote relaxing alpha wave brain activity
  2. Eat porridge for breakfast – a source of tryptophan, a serotonin pre-cursor
  3. Reduce your coffee intake (and don’t drink caffeine after 4pm)
  4. Have a little protein with each meal and snack
  5. Eat some almonds every day
  6. Eat up your greens – packed full of magnesium, an important adrenal supporting nutrient
  7. Eat every 3 to 4 hours
  8. Avoid white and refined carbohydrates
  9. Choose lower sugar fruit like apples, pears, plums & berries
  10. Take daily exercise – even if it is just a walk around the block at lunchtime

Make one small change today to help support your adrenal health and build your resilience to stress.
