80% of people surveyed experience daily stress. If that’s you, here’s how to fight it:
First: Shop from home! University of Miami researchers found 8‑in‑10 people who browse catalogs or online stores feel less stressed, whether they buy something or not! Because it releases feel-good brain chemicals.
Another stress-reducer: Play solitaire, use a backgammon app, or do a Sudoku puzzle. Games distract and reset the mind, and are proven to reduce stress as much as exercise!
Finally, have a snack. If you haven’t eaten in a while, a dip in blood sugar can trigger anxiety. But Harvard researchers found a small snack can reduce stress and anxiety by 75%.
