Symptoms such as hot flushes and chronic worrying are red alerts that your body and brain are stuck in fight or flight mode.But how did you get there? We often blame our jobs or family life, but what’s on our plate can also turn up the tension.

 To reclaim that inner calm, cut your intake of these anxiety-boosting foods.

If you live from one hit to the next, those long blacks, cups of tea or slugs of energy drink could be taking their toll on your temperament. “Side effects of caffeine intake can include shakiness, heart palpitations, difficulty sleeping and anxiety,” Jared Brown, a poisons specialist from the NSW Poisons Information Centre, says. If you tend towards caffeine sensitivity (which you may have without knowing it), even one cup of coffee or tea can put you on edge.
