Sometimes trying to relax can be stressful. You don’t have the chance to break out a yoga mat at the office and you can't take a quick nap when you’re driving. But there is an easy way to unwind that is allowed almost everywhere. Next time you need to de-stress, you might consider reaching for the refrigerator door. There are lots of foods that can help you relax and chill. Who knew stress eating could actually be productive?
Of all the relaxation techniques available, this is by far the most tasty. Fresh fruits, crunchy veggies, and even some seafood contains nutrients that can help improve your mood and unwind. Avocados also rate pretty high on the chill-out scale, which is all the more reason to order a side of guacamole. (Not that I needed any reasons to eat more avocados).
Sure, a three-martini lunch might help you forget all of the office woes, but it would probably have a negative effect on your afternoon productivity. So when you’re overworked and debating what to eat for lunch, incorporating a few of these foods may help you regain some chill. At the very least, they’re tasty enough to put you in a better mood for a little while.
