1. Integrate adaptogens

A natural way to destress to live longer is by incorporating adaptogens into your lifestyle – plants that support your body’s ability to handle stress.

“They help build resistance to outside stressors by promoting hormonal balance,” explains Serena Poon CN, CHC, CHN, Celebrity Chef & Longevity Wellness Expert at Serena Loves.

According to Poon, adaptogens that help stress relief and balance include Tulsi (which is holy basil), ashwagandha, Rhodiola rosea, ginseng, jiaogulan, licorice root, and Schisandra.

6. Tune in to yourself

You know your body better than anyone else, which means you can pinpoint the causes of your stress as well as how to unwind in ways that work for you.

“One of the best ways to mitigate stress is to be able to understand your personal triggers and responses,” says Poon. “If you are entering a particularly busy time at work or you have a stressful family event that you know will cause you psychological stress, it’s important to have a toolbox of resources on hand to help you ease stress at the end of the day (or throughout the day).”

Some practices that Poon suggests include a warm bath at the end of the day, practicing yoga and/or meditation, exercise, or spending time with a good friend.
