The Huffington Post Canada talked to Canadian fitness and yoga expert and former WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus, on how yoga helps her zone out.

HuffPost: How do you suggest taking a break from the stresses of the holidays?

Trish Stratus: During a stressful or busy day, I take five minutes out of my day to do a yoga pose. Legs to the Sky pose is a favourite. Lay down with on the ground with your legs up a wall so you are in an L-shape. Relax your arms, shoulders and back gently into the ground. Stay in this pose for at least five minutes. This is a calming pose that can be done anytime and anywhere.

I also ensure I take five minutes between meals to eat a whole-grain snack and keep my energy levels up. Whole-grain snacks help your body produce increased levels of serotonin, which improves your mood and produces a calming feeling. It also controls the production of the stress hormone cortisol. Now you can see why we call carbs comfort foods!
