Beat it: 3 keys to prevent stress and gain emotional balance


Learning to relax and approach situations in a way that does not overwhelm us is the best attitude. Faced with stress there are many things we can do. These three will help you tackle the problem from the bottom up, strengthening your attitude towards stressful situations and preparing your body to deal with it differently:


Self-confidence allows you to gain serenity and emotional balance.

  • The sense of fragility. Frailty is one of the qualities of human existence. Feeling fragile is often a trigger for tension and anxiety. The present is fleeting and therefore a stressful situation can also be temporary, turning into a soft caress or fleeting breath of wind that warns that we are alive. Accepting fragility makes us more authentic and reminds us of that necessary willingness to get back up again and again.
  • Believe in yourself. Trusting yourself means being fully aware that there are alternatives to discouragement and stress. Confidence gives that unique opportunity to “wake up” to a new life. In the same way that nature flows, man must feel accompanied by his own confidence to accept insecurity. If you face unpleasant situations with resentment, you will never find a way out of the labyrinth.


  • Vitamins group B. The body consumes more B vitamins when it is stressed. They are present in whole grains, nuts and green leafy vegetables (folic acid).
  • Vitamin C. When adrenaline levels rise, more vitamin C is required. It is found in oranges, lemons, kiwis, green leafy vegetables (especially raw), bell peppers, and tomatoes.
  • Vitamin E. It is another antioxidant that reduces the effects of free radicals that deplete the body. It is found in unroasted nuts, virgin olive oil, avocado, and sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
  • Magnesium. The magnesium acts as relaxing the nervous system. When its levels are low, the body releases stress- related hormones. Legumes, bananas and spinach are rich in magnesium.

Contact with nature helps strengthen physical and emotional health and improves the ability to cope with stress and hopelessness.


Three useful gestures to get rid of negative thoughts.

  • Boost optimism. Cultivating a good mood, laughter or smile are ways to relieve tension and restore balance. It is about learning to laugh at the interpretations that our mind makes of reality and exercising to look at the situation from another perspective.
  • Sing often. We should sing more, and it is that, when singing, the heart rate increases and stress decreases under the effect of the melody and the musical rhythm. Music acts on the heart through the vague nerve, which relates the timbre of the voice with emotions and communication with others. Humming a tune or repeating it like a mantra can have a yoga-like effect.
  • Visualize. The visualization of different natural scenes is an aid in recovering from stress. If these visual stimuli are accompanied by natural auditory stimuli, the recovery of mood is even greater and much more fruitful.
