Feeling Stressed?

Women's Day Magazine has 10-Second Stress Busters
---15 in all. Check them out!

The first is my favorite:

Drink Tea
Black tea has been shown to have an effect on stress hormone levels in the body. Researchers in England have found that people who drink black tea de-stress more quickly than those drinking a fake tea substitute. Tea contains catechins, polyphenols, flavonoids and amino acids that affect your brain's neurotransmitters and ultimately reduce blood levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
I drink tea all the time, especially black tea, and it is always so comforting.

What do you do when feeling stressed?
