Sometimes slow breathing and counting to ten just do not help. Here are some foods (courtesy of EatThis.com) to keep in your drawer or backpack so when anxiety starts knockin', your brain can pull off the "be quiet and maybe it'll go away" trick.
1. DARK CHOCOLATE - A small square of dark chocolate can lower the stress hormones in humans. That being said, if you eat the entire bar in one sitting, we won't judge you. That's between you and your New Year's resolution.
2. STRAWBERRIES - Kinda ironic that strawberries shows up right below dark chocolate on this list, being that these two foods make for a great collabo. If you have allergies or are not a fan of strawberries, a substitute that is high in Vitamin C will also do the trick.
