Manage Stress and Take Steps Towards a Healthier & Happier Life.
April is stress awareness month, which provides an opportunity to recognize the importance of managing stress and taking steps towards a healthier, happier life.
Stress is an extremely common emotion faced by millions of people around the world. Fortunately, there are many strategies and activities that we can use to manage our stress levels, including exercise, meditation, and healthy eating. In this post, we’ll explore some of the best tips to help reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
Move Your Body
Exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. No, we aren’t just quoting the Legally Blonde movie – prioritizing physical activity a few times a week is a great way to minimize the physical effects of stress. After your workout, be sure to refuel your body with one of our new energizing smoothies, Acai Berry Lit or Island Surge. Our new Beyond Energy Supplement is made with natural caffeine to enhance physical and mental performance and reduce fatigue and stress.
Practice Mindful Meditation
Mindful meditation can help you unwind and focus on the present moment, which can help ease stress and support calmness. Unwind and relax with our powerful juice, Pepper + Poise. Our Pepper + Poise juice is rich in antioxidants that may reduce stress and inflammation, which is just what you need before meditating.
Spend Time in Nature
Being outside in nature can have an extremely calming effect. Try going for a short walk or sitting in a green space to clear your mind. Bonus points if you take one of our bottled juices with you on the go.
Grab a Smoothie with a Friend
Socializing not only lessons feelings of loneliness but increases your sense of happiness and well-being. For your next friendship date, meet up at your nearest Beyond Juicery + Eatery to grab our new Cosmic Dream Bowl. Its acai sorbet, peanut butter and chocolate chips make it the perfect afternoon sweet treat. Plus, chocolate is known to have stress-reducing benefits with several studies linking chocolate to lower levels of cortisol.
Adjust Your Eating Habits
What we eat can have a direct impact on how we feel. Certain foods can enhance your body’s ability to handle stress, including those packed with essential nutrients to boost your mental state. In addition to a balanced healthy diet, try incorporating berries, dark leafy greens, nuts, avocados and bananas – each packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to keep your mind and body healthy.
