Stress is everywhere. I see it every day in people from all walks of life. I actively concern myself each day with staying stress-free, no matter what. I have realized that my life can't be enjoyable with stress, so figuring out how to live stress-free has been crucial for me. Part of being stress-free is, of course, reducing stress factors that you have in your life. Another very important component in being stress-free, however, is one that people don't often take into consideration: food.
Researchers have been studying how food affects stress levels for some time now. Why don't we take a hint from their research and eat some anti-stress foods? I don't know about you, but I'd rather eat the right food than have a meltdown any day. Opt for organic and sustainably harvested fruits, nuts, veggies and fish for optimal health and environmental benefits.
