It is common to face stress at any point due to emotional or physical tension. With fast pace of life and materialistic mode of living finding time to limit or ease the tension is a cause of concern. Stress is a natural feeling of not being able to cope up with busy schedules or actions demanding certain role in a specified time frame. The demands may arise from work, relationships, financial pressures, emotional hazards, or anything that poses a significant challenge to a person’s well-being resulting in stress.
At times, stress can be a motivator and can push an individual to achieve a desired target and prepares the body to face challenging risks. But, stimulation of too many stressors at a single time can become harmful and give birth to diseases over a period of time. The body is flooded with hormones to prepare it from inadvertent danger during stress. But uncontrolled stress can lead to an increase in blood pressure, heart rate, and decrease in immunity level with heightened breathing.
Taking too much stress over prolonged period can have an adverse effect on your physical and mental well-being. How to manage it? The first most significant step is to do regular exercise. The second is nutritious food. Consumption of lukewarm milk with honey is a crucial stress buster. Honey has anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant and anti-fungal properties while milk is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin D, calcium, protein and lactic acid. Milk with honey helps relax our nerves and heart rate along with limiting stress. If you have difficulty sleeping, mix some honey with lukewarm milk for a better, relaxed sleep at night. So, it is advisable to drink a healthy mixture of milk with honey one hour prior to sleeping. A good sleep reduces stress hormones in the body and a regular, balanced sleep increases your concentration by keeping you energised and maintaining your physical and psychological well-being.
