Health expert Kathy Vasilipolous shares with Neos Kosmos her top five tips to reducing stress and boosting energy.
1. Drink two litres of water a day - our body is 70 per cent water so we need to keep rehydrated.
2. Eat breakfast every morning between 7.00 am and 9.00 am - bodies respond better to routine and during this time are more receptive to taking in vital nutrients.
3. Bed by 11.00 pm - your body recovers and repairs itself when you are asleep so make sure it's lights out by 11.00 pm. The occassional late night won't harm but don't make a habit of it.
4. Exercise for 30 minutes three times a week - regular exercise stimulates the production of endorphins and seratonin which means that more exercise equals reduced stress.
5. Get out in nature - relax and calm yourself from your fast-paced life with a long walk in the park or a walk along the beach. Fill your lungs with fresh air as you unwind with nature.
