Minimizing Anxiety with Helpful Food Ideas

Anxiety is no doubt all about that feeling of worry and nervousness -- more than likely in anticipation of some event that will be unpleasant and troublesome. The first thing that came to mind of what can cause anxiety in some people would simply be Monday. Monday for many can represent not only the start of a work week, but one that can be the start of another work week filled with dread, anxiety and worry. 

But, in the spirit of good health and wellbeing, food can play a role in alleviating that anxiety. It is well known for example that chicken soup is good for minimizing your cold symptoms and ginger is not only anti-inflammatory, but also is a treatment for gastrointestinal issues. So, in using those previous examples, there must be helpful foods that can help with minimizing anxiety too. True, when someone is going through an anxious spell, food may be the last thing to think about in their moment of need! 

But, food can help with minimizing anxiety and water definitely helps. For starters, maintaining good hydration helps with improving the digestion process, lubricating our joints, and maintaining our body's temperature. Also, as noted in an article about the importance of water and your health, "A mere 2% drop in our body's water supply can trigger signs of dehydration: fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing on smaller print, such as a computer screen. Mild dehydration is also one of the most common causes of daytime fatigue. An estimated seventy-five percent of Americans have mild, chronic dehydration!"

Other foods to help with alleviating anxiety include fresh fruits and vegetables, avoiding sugar (as in processed foods that contain a lot of sugar typically) and caffeine.
