Take a chill pill

Omega-3 fish oil can lower your stress levels

The new year brings hope for peace on earth, but if the activities of the year ahead are rattling your inner calm, omega-3 fish oil may help. In a recent study by Ohio State University in the US, a daily dose of 2 500mg cut anxiety by 20% in a group of stressed med students.

 

You can either take an omega-3 supplement or include walnuts, flax seeds, beans, fish and olive oil in your daily diet.
