Can Green Tea Relieve Stress and Anxiety?

Surprisingly, despite its caffeine content, green tea may be good for relaxation and stress relief. Here’s why.

When it comes to stress relief, you might not think a drink containing caffeine could be of benefit. Surprisingly, there’s one caffeine containing drink that may be effective for relaxation and stress reduction. The drink – green tea. Although green tea is thought to have a variety of health properties, it’s potential to promote relaxation has been less appreciated. Why should this healthy beverage be helpful for relaxation and stress reduction?

Green tea is rich in an amino acid known as gamma-ethylamino-L-glutamic acid, commonly known as L-theanine. One of the unique properties of L-theanine is its ability to induce relaxation and stress relief. Because it has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, it readily gains access to the central nervous system. Once there, it has the ability to alter the levels of key neurotransmitters associated with mood such as serotonin, GABA, and dopamine. L-theanine also been shown to directly promote production of alpha waves, the “gentle” brain waves associated with relaxation and stress reduction. For example, when you enter a meditative or state of extreme relaxation, your brain produces mainly alpha waves. L-theanine has also been shown to cause lowering of the blood pressure.

What about the activating effects of the caffeine in green tea? It appears that the soothing effects of L-theanine offset many of the activating properties of the caffeine in the tea, making green tea helpful for stress relief despite the presence of variable amounts of caffeine. Of course, the effects seen will vary with the type of green tea drank as well as the characteristics of the individual drinking the tea. Some green teas are much higher in caffeine than others, while some people are more sensitive to the effects of caffeine and may experience less stress relief from drinking it. Overall, it appears that, despite the presence of caffeine, most people feel more relaxed after a few cups of green tea.

Although it may seem smart to use decaffeinated green tea if you’re using green tea for stress relief, this isn’t necessarily the healthiest option. Although decaffeination doesn’t remove the theanine, it does remove many of the healthy catechins that make green tea so beneficial. If you want to decaffeinate green tea, do it naturally at home. To do this, pour hot water over the green tea leaves and allow it to remain for thirty seconds. Discard the water and use fresh, hot water to steep the leaves as usual. You’ll have removed eighty percent of the caffeine.

Green tea for relaxation and stress reduction can be a healthy alternative to prescription drugs for stress relief. Of course you’ll want to talk to your doctor before substituting green tea for any medications you’re currently taking. The next time you’re feeling a bit frazzled why not treat yourself to a soothing cup of hot green tea?

Pets and Stress Relief
Man's Best Friend May Be
Key To Wellness

The link between pets and stress relief has long been known. The role that animals (domesticated pets, specifically) can and do play in helping human beings achieve and maintain wellness in many areas of life is a very interesting field. Organizations such as Therapet in the USA or Therapeutic Pets of Canada (TPOC) are doing amazing things for people AND pets to help relieve all kinds of stress.

Why do people keep pets? They say that a dog is man's best friend because of the unconditional love that a dog will show towards its owner. The health-benefits-related history between pets and stress relief is very extensive.

We have known for hundreds of years that pets provide a form of animal therapy to their keepers. The number of therapeutic jobs an animal is capable of fulfilling is quite amazing.

Through programs like "therapy dog training", animals provide assistance in extended care facilities to comfort the elderly; pet therapists are used to assist with grieving and loss; pet therapy is used in dealing with trauma situations; animals (horses) are used to help persons with physical disabilities improve their mobility; and most recently, I learned that dogs are used to help children who struggle with reading become better readers.

Whatever the use of pets as animal therapists, it seems an excellent way to help us human beings relieve stress and achieve wellness. In many different ways, pets and stress relief go hand in had or paw in hand, that is.

What About the Animals Themselves?

It's one thing for us to acknowledge the link between pets and stress relief, but animals can be a very large cause of stress as well. So often, we get pets as gifts or because we are overcome with a sense of social justice if an animal is being mistreated. We take on the responsibility of owning a pet without a real plan as to how we will fit this responsibility into our lives. What we thought was going to be animal therapy has now become an animal-ownership induced stress. The idea of pets and stress relief as a solution suddenly falls flat.

Or what if your pet becomes ill and you don't have the resources to take care of that pet. In my own life, I had a recent terrible experience with a pet that became very ill and didn't respond to any of the known treatments. No matter how much I spent and no matter how many vets I saw, the dog just got sicker and sicker. I felt so bad for that dog's suffering (our baby) that it caused me an immense amount of stress. That dog is now in a much better place and her suffering has ended, but I feel stressed out just thinking about the situation as I write this.

What about you? Have you watched the recent hit movie, Marley and me? Animals can be our greatest therapists but they can also pose a huge problem in our lives if they are not well-managed. The idea of pets and stress relief is not something that should be looked at lightly.

Take a Test about Pets and Stress Relief

If you don't already have an animal friend in your life, perhaps the following test about pets and stress relief will help you determine what role animals play or should play in your life.

What role do animals play in your life? Have you always had pets or is owning a pet a new experience? Do you have too many or too few pets in your life?

Would you say that the animal(s) in your life cause you stress? Is it good stress or bad stress?

If the stress is good, why is it good? Can you build on this good stress to achieve an even higher level of pet therapy for you and your family?

If the stress is bad, why is it bad? Can you change the situation to reduce the stress? Can you identify the problems. What can be done to solve them?

Do you feel that you do a good job of managing pets in your life so they are a help and not a burden?

Does your owning a pet cause extreme stress in the life of another person close to you? What can be done to solve this problem?

Have you ever bought a pet for someone else or help someone else acquire a pet? When choosing a pet, it is important to consider the needs of the animal and the future owner. If you are going to assist someone in getting a pet, it is important to ensure a good match. The link at the top of this page gives some excellent information on the needs of pets.
