3 ways to avoid stress even with a highly active life

See the source image

Stress is a physical and mental reaction, a consequence of changes in routine, whether positive, such as the birth of a child, or negative, such as losing a job. The body generates cortisol to protect itself from any danger.

This stress hormone is activated when survival is at risk and all thoughts that generate frustration, anger or nerves trigger its effects. In small doses, stress can be beneficial, for example, to take action in an accident or make a plan for our purposes.

The first step is to recognize the existence of stress and identify bad habits when dealing with it, for example:

  • Eat excessively
  • Smoke
  • Drink alcohol or use drugs
  • Sleeping too much or too little

These three techniques can be of great help to change your reaction to unpleasant situations and thoughts. You can practice them combined or choose one that suits your lifestyle.


Daily physical activity is the simplest way to combat unpleasant feelings, since the body releases hormones such as endorphin and serotonin that increase the state of well-being and reduce the feeling of emotional pain.

We recommend doing activities that you enjoy, it can be a specific sport or a simple 30-minute walk through the park; If your main excuse is “I don't have time,” try to exercise first thing in the morning, this way you will avoid commitments or setbacks that interfere with your habit.

2. Balanced diet

A balanced diet is important to maintain your physical and mental health. Eating habits and emotional well-being are directly related, think about it like this: your body - including your brain and nervous system - is a super machine that can do anything, its fuel is food, if you fill it with low-quality, poorly digestible products and inadequate, your system will fail.

Some foods with vitamins and relaxing properties are:

  • Dark chocolate, 40-50 grams reduces cortisol levels.
  • Oatmeal helps increase serotonin levels.
  • Chamomile, a chamomilla tea before bed for 8 weeks has proven effects.

3. Breathing

This technique can be done anywhere and is very simple:

  • Sit with your back straight but relaxed, place one hand on your stomach and the other on your heart.
  • Inhale slowly until you feel your stomach rise.
  • Hold your breath for 4 seconds.
  • Exhale slowly, feel your stomach empty.

The most important thing to maintain a stress-free life is to learn to accept changes and everything that we cannot modify. Learn more about our therapies and achieve well-being.
