How to Mitigate Stress

1. Eat Well

Food affects your mood and energy levels, so always eat a healthy diet with lots of vegetables and lean proteins. Avoid skipping meals, as doing so may cause fatigue and have a negative impact on your mood. Keep healthy, energy-boosting snacks on hand, such as nuts, fresh apples, or yogurt. Eat smaller amounts of good food frequently through the day rather than only eating a few bigger meals. That will help you avoid unhealthy foods and function better through the day.

2. Acupuncture for Anxiety
