I FOUND THIS GREAT INFO ON WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO DE-STRESS AFTER WORK
not only for your sanity’s sake, but your health and your weight…
On-the-job stress may be unavoidable, but do your best to chill once you get home. According to a US study, stress causes us to crave sweets because sugar reduces the body’s level of stress hormones. It can also lead to pigging out in general: In another US study, subjects who felt the most stress ate twice as much as their less-overwhelmed counterparts.
Find your balance by turning off your mobile and computer – and make time for some relaxing activities once you’ve finished work. Taking a yoga class or simply walking around the block are great de-stressers. Calling your high-drama friend for the latest rundown of her train wreck of a life? Not so much.
