Eat Nutrient-Rich Foods Especially Those High In Antioxidants
Having a healthy diet will help fight stress, mainly if you eat food with antioxidants like fruits and veggies. Our body uses up lots of nutrients when we feel stressed out. Eating healthy food will help combat stress naturally as it can provide an abundance of nutrients.
