I totally understand you because I don't like coffee either! although I like to have a cup of natural tea before going to bed as it relaxes me and induces my sleep (I have trouble sleeping)
I think that you don't necessarily need to look for some substance to relax, you should avoid at all costs coffee, tea, cigarettes, drugs or any other typical substance that people usually use to relax.
First of all try to relax your mind a bit and organize better over time as we feel stressed when we have many things to do and we feel that we do not have enough time to do it, so first organize yourself, have a schedule, release loads, If you start something, finish it so you do not have to wait for the next day.
Second, look for other activities to relax, I particularly relax DANCING, so dancing a bit with someone or even dancing alone at home will be enough to relieve stress, because when dancing I do not think about problems, on the contrary I forget of them so I really recommend you put your favorite music and do it.
If you are one of those people who are not very good dancers try to do a little exercise at home, or in the gym, many people work to do physical activities to relax or practice some sport, soccer, baseball, dance, tennis among others. .... even swimming, you can go swimming in the pool one day and with that you will feel more relaxed.
At night, take a bath with hot water, put on music and relax, take a bath without pressure and do not think about work, debts, or pending that you have, just relax and you will be able to sleep peacefully.
Watch a movie or series that distract you and that you like a lot, that can also help you relax if you are one of those people who prefer to stay at home at home.
And if this is within your means at least once a month, pay for some massages, and you will feel much more relieved !!
That's what I do to get rid of stress, I hope it works for you!
Rest is a better relief from stress. Whenever we're feeling stressed, our bodies are talking to us to take a leave from whatever it is that we are doing and have some rest. If you listen to your body and give it the appropriate rest, you would certainly feel refreshed and ok. But if you refuse to listen to your body and give it the rest that it requires, the stress starts accumulating and before you would know it, you're already held captive it.
Accumulation of stress most times lead to depression. So always listen to your body and give it the appropriate rest whenever It demands it. Rest is the best antidote for stress
So many things:
Meditation. Working out. Going for a nature walk. Taking a long warm bath. Going to the spa for a massage... the list can go on.
As drugs are coffee and tea, by not consuming them for a day you experience a kind of abstinence syndrome.
I used to drink coffee and tea, I had to drink them every day or I felt bad.
Until I started doing exercises and stopped using them completely.
My life is less stressed now.
Ahh also helped me a lot to reduce my stress levels give leave my work and start creating business by myself.
The daily rhythm can lead to a stressful situation that then leads to other more serious problems. Some simple preparations such as the infusions and smoothies that we present below, can help you relax and relieve daily exhaustion.
I will leave you 10 drinks that I consume
Many people believe that a Martini will free them from stress, but the opposite happens. Alcohol changes the way the body copes with stress by decreasing cortisol, the hormone it releases to respond to stress, and then the feeling of tension is prolonged.
1. A glass of milk
Some people drink a glass of warm milk before going to bed because they think it relaxes them. And they are not wrong, scientists support this theory through the evidence thrown by medical studies about its anti-stress effect.
Milk is very effective in restoring balance and restoring cognitive abilities that are endangered by stress, such as memory, especially in people exposed to a very hectic life.
2. Green tea
L theanine is an amino acid found in green tea
4. Drink water
Drinking a glass of natural water reduces stress levels, because dehydration is a factor that promotes tension. In addition, by ingesting this fluid the body manufactures endorphins, which produces a feeling of well-being
5. kiwi Smoothie
Prepare a smoothie with water and kiwi. This fruit improves mood and combats stress.
Its high content of vitamin C helps activate a series of enzymes in the body that improve the levels of physical and mental energy.
6. cherry juice
Delicious and powerful against fatigue and tension. People who drink 2 glasses of cherry a day, benefit from better sleep and a good rest after a day in contact with high levels of stress. Apparently, they can rest, on average, up to 40 more minutes.
7. Avocado Smoothie
It is rich in potassium, 60% more than bananas. Because of this, it has been shown to help reduce stress related to high blood pressure
It improves overall health, and your laboratory is studying its effectiveness in depression, dyspnea and fatigue.
Those that work for me are avocado and cherries.
