Mi hijo Enmanuel me envió este fwd.....Paliativos para el stress

1. Drink More Juice / Ingiera más vitamina C
Researchers at the University of Alabama fed rats 200 milligrams of vitamin C twice a day and found that it nearly stopped the secretion of stress hormones. If it relaxes a rat, why not you? Two 8-ounce glasses of orange juice daily gives you the vitamin C you need.

2. Put a Green Dot on Your Phone / Respire hondo antes de tomar una llamada
This is your secret reminder to take one deep breath before you answer a call, says Susan Siegel, of the Program on Integrative Medicine at the University of North Carolina school of medicine. Not only will you feel better, but you'll sound more confident.

3. Spend Quality Time with a Canine / Disfrute de la compañía de su mascota canina
Yours or someone else's. According to research at the State University of New York at Buffalo , being around a pet provides more stress relief than being around a two-legged companion. As if we needed a study to determine that.

4. Go to Starbucks—with Your Coworkers / Tome café en compañia de sus colegas
Researchers at the University of Bristol in England discovered that when stressed-out men consumed caffeine by themselves, they remained nervous and jittery. But when anxious men caffeine-loaded as part of a group, their feelings of stress subsided.

5. Shake It Out / Sacuda las manos
When you're facing that big-money putt, shake out your fingers, relieving the tension in your forearms, hands, and wrists and shifting your focus to the only thing you can control: your preshot routine. You won't think about making—or missing—the shot, says Alan Goldberg, Ed.D., a sports-psychology consultant in Amherst , Massachusetts .

6. Listen to Music at Work / Trabaje con música de fondo
And make it the blandest playlist you can create. According to a study at Pennsylvania 's Wilkes University , Mozart lowers your stress levels at work, while also reducing the risk of the common cold. We knew Celine Dion had a purpose.
