6 Stressipes from Elisa Zied, author of Younger Next Week.

What’s a Stressipe? Just what it sounds like. Recipes for dealing with stress! Here are six that dietitian Elisa Zied crafted for you in advance of her talk on Sep 18.

1. Anxious? Say yes to carbohydrate-rich foods throughout the day. Have small portions of produce, whole grains, beans, or low fat milk or yogurt every few hours to help your body make serotonin to help you stay calm and carry on.

2. No time for exercise? Take ten. For every hour you sit, take ten minutes to stand, stretch, take a short walk, or climb some stairs. Set an alarm as a reminder.

3. Do you eat when you’re not hungry? Nix the habit by taking 10. Go for a walk, call a friend, brush your teeth, read an article, or internet surf. Distracting yourself with something enjoyable and productive can help you redirect your mind to think about something besides food.

4. Can’t sleep? Clear your mind before you turn in. Keep a pen and pad—or even a journal—next to your bed and use them to track your before bed and middle of the night thoughts that enter your mind to help you settle before your slumber.

5. Eat mindlessly? Follow the food rule. To reduce nighttime or anytime noshing, especially when you’re not hungry, make it a rule to eat only while sitting down—preferably at a table.

6. Always pressed for time? To gain time in no time, track how you spend time for 24 hours. See when and how you’re wasting time and fill that time with more productive pursuits.
