When Running in Tensions, Avoid to Consume Sugar

Do you love to eat sweets or sugary food in the tension to reduce your stress by your favorite treat? Control and change this habit now because it reduces stress or not, but can increase your blood sugar level unexpectedly. Know below how!

When we are under stress or facing any tense situation, our body prepares for fight or flight. It builds up blood sugar to prepare you to flee as if any predator is right behind you. In this situation, if you take additional sugar to treat you for getting rid of tension, it can give you chronically very high levels of blood sugars. So next time, watch what to eat when stressed as some things can trigger your stress even more too, if not cared about.

Consume Refreshing Drink or Food: What to Drink and Eat in Tension?

Tea and coffee have been popular drinks when it comes to feeling refreshing and get relieved from a tension headache. Try something new that proves healthy too for you. For example: have a cup of green tea that works as an amazing antioxidant. Other best antioxidant eatables include walnuts, cloves, pinto beans, red beans, or berries like raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc. You can also go for any kind of soup that provides you the nutrition too.

Watch what you intake and take a diet involving the right food and drinks to help you in controlling your stress hormones.

What Not to Do in Tension: Say No to Coffee

Coffee is one of the most favorite choices when we feel tensed or lethargic. We take it as an energy source. But who said coffee gives energy? It’s just a psychological perception to trick your mind. Fruits and vegetables should be your option if you want to get rid of stress by supplementing energy to your body.

Try Your Inbuilt Tension Reliever

There is one natural stress reliever for which you don’t need to go anywhere and don’t need to spend a single penny. You are rich or poor, young or old, this works for all.

It is a brisk ‘walk’ which is one of the most effective natural ways to remove tension. Simultaneously it has several other health benefits too.

Here, going for a long or strenuous walk is not the motto. It is to engage your body and make your brain focused on a better thought process. It is like engaging a baby kid with a toy and feed food without letting him know that he is eating also.

Walking makes not only your body active but also your brain. It works faster than usual giving better solutions for problems. This way your brain starts doing energy consumption in walking and thinking productive, instead of just puzzling with the same song, “tensions are eating me, feeling sucked and helpless, why I am so depressed, this stress is taking me to dark”, and so on.

Myth about Walking

We think walking is a type of physical exercise only, which helps to maintain our outer body.

Unknown Fact about Walking

Walking is not for just tone down your body. A walk is beneficial for both physical and mental health.

Meditate to Reduce Tension and Stressful Tendencies

You have a first-level tension or higher-level depression, meditation is the sure-shot magic that works for every type of mental problem. Many medical research works have also proven this a scientifically tested cure for depression, tensions, and stressful tendencies.

Healthy Reminder about Meditation

Meditation is the master key to remove all kinds of mental diseases and disorders.

An Eye-opener about Practicing Meditation

As the word ‘meditation’ crosses our head, most of us start thinking of a monk sitting in that lotus style and chanting ‘Om’. You can say this ideal body language to practice meditation, but taking the same posture is not necessary to meditate.

The core essence of meditation lays in reaching the supreme quietness of mind; again this quietness does not mean you need to find a pin-drop silent place. Meditation means getting an utmost peaceful mental state where you can listen to your inner voice and take directions and guidance from yourself. It completely belongs to your within, your inner being. It doesn’t matter you are sitting, resting, or even walking.

If you don’t feel like following a system at a moment, you can also develop your own way and style of meditating and follow that to find peace where there is no tension to kill your happiness.

How to Meditate: A Simplest Technique

All you need to do is focus your attention on your recitation. You recite loud or silently, but your focus must be centered. You can repeat any positive phrase, mantra, or sentence like “Loving to be alive on this beautiful planet”, “I am going towards happiness”, “Feeling sheer bliss and peace all around me”, etc. Feel all the tensions, stress reasons, problems, negativity, and distracting thoughts floating around you like clouds.

Make daily meditation your habit to help ease anxiety. Research says about meditation a lot, suggesting it to be an altering agent for neural pathways of the brain. Make a profit from this heavenly technique of Mediation.

Grind Your Mind to Train Your Brain

It seems a new fashion called ‘brain training’ is set to bang on soon. If you practice the brain strengthening exercises through scientifically designed gaming apps or programs, you can make new, fresh neural pathways to percept the same situation in a different way. It improvises your reasoning ability and cognitive processing. It also helps to beat stress. It enhances your problem-solving approaches and helps to reduce mental tension.

Body Detoxification

Cleansing your body organs can be a joyous experience to perk up your mood. Relieving toxins from your body can be helpful to relieve stress in an amazing way that you never thought of. Move from colon to liver, and liver to others, and so on. This is a healthy way to maintain physical and mental fitness.

Change Your Surrounding

Altering the environment you are living in can also change your outlook. It doesn’t show any direct connection between your surroundings and tensions, yet it makes an impact on the way you feel.

Let your feelings take a fresh breathe to move on with a difference. No matter how small is this, but it brings variation in life.

Sometimes the same belongings and even that wall cling to your brain with repetitiveness. Let your brain get some refreshing vibes from the new stuff or settings around so that it can get some different outlooks and patterns.

If you want a tension-free mind, keep it healthy and refreshing in whatever way you can. Remember, every small effort that you put in is counted. Start from bringing the change in outer space to bring change within.

Sleep to Give Your Brain Relaxation from Tension

The morning mood decides half of the mood for rest of the day. So take a sound sleep so that you wake up in a lighter mood and feel less likely to think about stress.

Here, instead of quantity, seek quality in your sleep. Follow the early to bed and early to rise rule so that you get deeper and refreshing sleep.

Use this freshness to bring newness in your thought patterns for resolving the cause of your tensions.

Practice How to Relax

Learn to make your muscles patient so that you create a calm aura around. If taking too much tension in every small activity of life has become a continuous problem, it is high time to practice gaining relaxation. As it is not a one-day skill to learn, give about half an hour every day to learn how to feel relaxed within.

If you think it is just a wastage of time, take it as you are refueling yourself in 30 minutes for the rest of your day.

Learn to Relax This Way for Removing Tension

Think about it as a relaxed and calm mind owns the largest space to think productive, qualitative, and effective. Gain positivity from within to relax and calm down. Strengthen your belief that you can reach the utmost peace without letting the tensioning thoughts affect you.

Use Acupressure to reduce Mental Pressure

If avoiding mental pressure has become the toughest job of your life, use acupressure techniques to handle your stubborn tensions. Acupressure and acupuncture are two techniques that target some specific strategic points of our body that are connected to our internal system and organs. The major difference between both is- acupuncture is invasive.

If you have a professional to treat you, it can be a day-lifting experience to feel relieved from all your tensions and stress through some work on your magic points. If you don’t have it, you can rely on a mimic device that also helps to handle the pressure of tensions.

Add Yoga to Your Life from Veda

If you want to see a drastic change of uplifted mood, give space to Yoga in your life. It is a time-tested remedy to relieve stress. Who says nothing works in mental disorders or diseases, try yoga to cope with your tensions and see the dynamic effects.

You need harmony in life, improvement in health, calmness in mind, or no tension days, yoga works as the all-in-one remedy. It unties all the blockage knots and frees up your energy. The stretching gives you instant stress reduction. If you think getting spiritual is not your part of life, hold on. Take yoga as a part of your exercise routine to unclog your physical and mental health blockages.

Say a ‘Big No’ to Alcohol

Many find drinking alcohol the best way to forget or release tension, but really, can to forget your problem for some time solving a problem permanently? If no, then what one gets by drinking it? Better lever and healthy organs?

A Fact You Have been Turning Face from

If alcohol could be an ultimate remedy for stress, all the medical stores would have been selling their bottles in the stores. If alcohol would be a healthy drink to give relief from tensions, no media channel would have shown a disclaimer against it saying "alcohol causes cancer".

The Right Way of Dealing Stress: What to Do?

Stick to something that has no side effects so that you can rely on that in the long term. Make healthy foods your drug to manage stress. Sip energy drinks to be more active and prepared to sort out your tension causes. Face it instead of running by using forgetting formulas.

Breathe It Out!

If you think we breathe for inhaling oxygen only, you have been underestimating breathing power. The biggest plus point of breathing exercise is you can perform it anywhere.

You can breathe as deeper as you can for feeling aliveness and filling positive energy. Do this exercise as a competition from yourself that how long breaths you can take. Try to feel the live air in your abdomen.

Another breathing exercise is inhale-exhale. Cover your one nostril and fill the air through another nostril. Now cover another nostril and release the filled air through the first nostril. Do it alternatively and often with an empty stomach to realize the best effects.

Deep breathing fights the adverse effects of stress by maintaining the slowed-down heart rate and lowered blood pressure.

Assume the exhaling process as releasing tensions with carbon dioxide and say your stress bye-bye, Dark!

So next time when post-lunch sleeping tendencies start to rule your brain, take a siesta instead of getting a tension headache and see how wonderfully it helps to give you relief from midday stress.

Be Sporty and Play

Playing is totally irrelevant or unrelated for most of us in today’s trending professions. The working hours are too long these days and we find lesser time to involve in some outdoor activities. When we reach home, we have numerous other responsibilities and chores to perform.

In such a hectic professional life, the rigorous mental pressure at the work-desk and tangled relationships with lesser time in hand to relax, sometimes we feel frustrated and irritated for no reason.
