21 Holiday Stress Busters
Go Easy on the Gingerbread Men
Here's the catch-22: the more stressed you get, the more you crave seasonal coffee drinks and crunchy gingerbread cookies. But the more gingerbread cookies you have in your system, the more stressed you get. Because when you are stressed and have low levels of serotonin, your brain produces cravings for sugar and simple carbohydrates, which primes the beta-endorphin system to want more and more. So go easy on Gingey!
