Sweet Drinks Ease Office Stress

Stressed at the Office? Study Says a Sweet Drink Could Help

It seems a spoonful of sugar really does help the medicine go down. A recent study found sugary beverages can help ease tension at work and make employees less argumentative. The findings note sugar in drinks like sweet tea give employees an energy surge that allows their brains to control impulses and prevent them from reacting too quickly in stressful situations. These findings are contrary to sugar's rep for causing a sugar rush roller coaster that could make people snap or act spontaneously.

So, while sugary drinks aren't the healthiest option for your waistline, they could help your mental health and stability in the office, and may even be a smart choice before a stressful meeting. Have you ever sipped stress away?
