Stress Relief For Her (and You)
Ever wonder why your girl deals with stress differently? Science has the reasons—we’ve got the solutions. Here’s how to beat stress for good.
DRINK TO YOUR HEALTH
We get it: After a stressful day, you want a drink—in fact, we believe that the occasional drink is a good thing. In excess, however, alcohol can wreak havoc on your health. First, it produces the byproduct acetate, which the body burns for energy rather than burning fat. It also lowers the amount of testosterone you produce and increases cortisol, a hormone that breaks down muscle. In moderation, though, booze won’t derail your training goals—check out three MF-approved cocktails below.
2 oz Peligroso Reposado Tequila
Diet ginger ale
11/4 oz Tanqueray London Dry Gin
1/4 oz lime juice
1 oz soda water
2 oz Ty Ku Coconut Sake
1 oz vodka
muddled mint for garnish
