Chocolate

Hurrah! It boosts serotonin levels which helps you to relax. Aim for dark chocolate varieties that contain 70 per cent or more cocoa solids.

Protein-rich foods

Foods such as fish, chicken, turkey, lean meat, eggs and tofu can all help to boost levels of dopamine, a hormone that helps you focus and reduces cravings for sweet foods.

Sweet Potatoes

At times of stress your body just seems to crave carbs, but instead of going for fries, mash or plates of pasta, opt for sweet potatoes instead. As sweet potatoes are a low GI carb (meaning they release a slow steady source of energy) after you eat you won't have the depressing blood-sugar crash that a big baguette or plate of penne can cause.

Nuts

Nuts and seeds, contain healthy fats. Eating a handful of pistachios, walnuts, or almonds every day may help lower your cholesterol, reduce inflammation in the arteries of the heart, lower the risk of diabetes, and protect you against stress.

Fresh fruits and berries

Stress eats up water-soluble vitamins (the B group and C). Fresh fruits and berries, particularly blueberries, are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants that help reduce negative effects of stress on skin.
