Simple Ways to Beat Stress and Improve Mental Alertness

A balanced diet and drinking enough water in a day can help you overcome stress that can manifest itself in symptoms like nail biting, excessive smoking, obesity and overeating.

With high pressure schedules and long working hours, stress is becoming inevitable. It is important to beat it the right way.
