3. A conversation with yourself
It may seem a bit odd to some people, but talking to yourself can actually help you relax. Talking to yourself about your situation and suggesting various solutions can have a calming effect and help you think more clearly. It’s important under these circumstances to reassure yourself and remind yourself that you will work through your problems and things will work out for the better.
The food industry doesn’t do us any favors by promoting highly-processed, sugary food and making it so readily available anywhere they can think of. Keeping stress under control is much easier with the benefit of a healthy diet that avoids the kinds of snack foods and beverages most often found in vending machines and fast food restaurants. Make an effort to arrange for your own snacks ahead of time and include things like fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Water or even flavored sparkling water is a much better choice when compared to soda and other sweetened drinks when you are thirsty.
