One of the biggest enemies of weight management is not getting enough sleep.
And one of the biggest enemies to not getting enough sleep is too much STRESS.
If you’re stressed out, anxious, worried, depressed, or your mind is running a million miles a minute, getting to sleep is not easy.

List of Foods to Fight Anxiety and Stress

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Berries
  • Walnuts
  • Salmon
  • Dark Leafy Greens
  • Mushrooms
  • Whole Grains
  • Seeds
  • Beans
  • Avocado

Of course, this is not a complete list but it is a great start to eating better choices for better health and less stress. You need whole food nutrients to help rest and repair your body to cope with the stress and anxiety of the day.

You may also supplement with certain herbs and vitamins because you aren’t perfect, and you can’t always eat everything on the list all of the time.

Natural whole foods are best, but when life gets you stressed out its good to know you have options that work! Don’t forget to practice relaxation, and don’t forget to get enough sleep. When you’re anxious about being unable to sleep, your body produces stress hormones that make it harder to let go of that anxiety.
