The U of I Extension Program knows that April is Stress Awareness Month, and they are doing their part to help residents relieve their stress.
Lisa Peterson is a Nutrition and Wellness Educator for the Extension. Peterson says stress eating can be a real problem and to combat that, she recommends prepping meals a week in advance.
Peterson says instead of eating the stress away, taking a walk is a healthier alternative.
Peterson appeared as a guest on the NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show.
