Stress can be defined as a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. However, stress should not be confused with depression. Even though, both conditions can be treated medically (and can produce successful results to a great extent) – they are triggered by different causes. Thus, they require different remedies. Follow our simple tips that may help in learning how to reduce your stress levels:
Avoid Caffeine & Nicotine:
Avoid caffeine and nicotine. Or, at least, reduce your consumption of these elements when you’re feeling stressed. This is because caffeine and nicotine are stimulants – they will increase your level of stress rather than lower it. Aim for plain water, herbal teas or natural fruit juices instead to keep yourself hydrated. Hence making you able to cope better with stress.
