A few weeks ago we mentioned a world full of stimuli and problems can stress us a lot! 96% of people say they have been stressed during last year and 42% have it on a recurring basis. In our February blog we promised to address this fact again to give you ideas and solutions to the stress you may be experiencing.

The first technique that doctors recommend is exercise, whatever you want and enjoy! A classic! Isn’t it? Being physically fit has great and very positive effects on stress control. Some of us will need “to sweat the shirt”, so running or other aerobic activities will be the most suitable for us; on the other hand, other people will do better with “less energy” sports, such as yoga. You can see in our social networks that we are big fans of yoga! Find a type of physical activity that suits you and practice it!

Second, the diet. It must be adequate, balanced, healthy … remember the importance of fresh and seasonal products and, if they are Km0, better. A proper diet develops the immune system and provides us with key nutrients. At #Greenvita you can find a healthy kitchen in all our restaurants but it’s also important to eat healthy at home; this is the reason why we showed you products such as kale or quinoa, which are already classics, now, in many homes.

The third tool we want to present is systemic desensitization, words that can be frightening, but that allows us to control stress levels in an extraordinary way. How do we apply it? With Jacobson’s progressive relaxation, which is a process of contraction-relaxation in different parts of the body. So, for example, you start by pressing specific muscles for a few seconds (they can be, for example, those of the hand or arm) to relax them then, repeating the process with all the limbs, back, or neck. We encourage you to find out about this technique and apply it … you will see the great benefits it brings to your day-to-day life!

And… it happened again! I’ve run out of space on this month’s blog again … so the stress inoculation technique, breath control, or mental relaxation … will have to wait for another day.

Until he arrives, you know, from #Greenvita we remember our motto: eat well, live well!

In our blogs and newsletters we have dedicated lots of pages to tell you how important it is to choose healthy food and carry out healthy activities to improve your life but … nothing matters if a ‘perfect quinoa cooker’ eats his creation fast and leaning against the washing machine.

The healthy ingredients we always discover you, the most respectful cooking techniques, the healthiest combinations and dishes and, of course, all the physical activities we always talk about, are essential to be healthy… but, without any doubt, the environment in which we integrate these activities is essential too. Can you imagine a yoga session in the middle of the Passeig de Gràcia metro tunnel? Difficult, right?

Environment is a key element in our well-being and health. It is easy to understand that it is not the same to live in the middle of the countryside, with minimal pollutants, than in one of the most crowded and polluted cities in the world. But, although the macroenvironment plays a key role, so does what we could call ‘microenvironment’, that is, the closest environment: for example, where we eat (kitchen, living room, dining room…), how it is configured and decorated (chairs, tables …) and, also, with who we share our meals.

An organized environment helps our mood and reduces stress. (We will cover this topic in future blogs and newsletters!). For this reason, you will see that we take care of spaces with natural light, with plants that improve our mood and with natural products in our decoration.

Once we have a pleasant environment, we must find ‘our time’. It is useless to sit down and enjoy a magical environment if we only have 3 minutes to eat. Eating is one of the most important acts we do during the day and we must dedicate the time it deserves. And finally, something better than sharing a meal with someone? One looks for a better environment and dedicates more time to a meal if it has to be shared with someone special. Find that special person and enjoy.

And remember, eat well to live well!
