What do you do when you are under stress? Are you marching straight to your fridge and grab a bar of oh so delicious chocolate? Or are you run straight to your cookie jar and wipe all of them?
Me? I eat a whole bowl of Ramen or a full plate of yang chou fried rice! Basically it's a free day for carbs!! Which is bad and i finally found a better way to calm myself down during the stress period, and it works to keep my figure as well :)
If you are a caffein slave like I am, go for a great coffee or a cup of award winning tea to fill the caffeine intake.
For coffee, i pick nespresso capsule.
I love to drink it cold. All i do is just putting 2 cubes of sugar, nespresso capsule and a good cold milk.
For the tea, nothing beats TWG! And the newly found tes - Shanghai Tisanes.
Oooh, purely indulgence.
I love to indulge myself with a good shower too. Something lavenderish really works to calm my nerves down and give me a good sleep at night.
I recommend acca kappa in lavender, the range available in Takashimaya level 3.
I am also taking a booster from Centrum STRESStabs,
