A Nutritionist, a Psychologist, and an Acupuncturist on Ways to Reduce Stress

With a busy and full life, stress is somewhat inevitable. Thankfully, with the right tools, you can find many different ways to reduce stress, whether you have 15 minutes to spare or are working toward more long-term goals. It comes down to making small changes for your physical, emotional, and mental health. But don't take our word for it. We tapped a registered dietitian, a licensed clinical psychologist, and an acupuncturist to find a myriad of ways to reduce stress stemming from every self-care discipline.

Registered dietitian and CEO of The Better Nutrition Program Ashley Koff suggests turning specific foods to turn off the body's stress response. According to her, you'll want to load up on foods packed with magnesium like cashews, almonds, and dark leafy greens.

Melanie Greenberg, PhD, author of The Stress-Proof Brain, recommends directing your energy to parts of a stressful situation that you can control and developing mindfulness practices that work best for you.

Finally, acupuncturist, herbalist, and founder of Vie Healing Mona Dan finds that acupuncture can help both the body and the mind relax thanks to its effect on the nervous system. Ahead, each wellness expert explains how to reduce stress no matter how much time you have.
