ELLE (Canada) - - Body -

WWBD—what would Bey­oncé do?—is the ELLE Canada beauty team’s mantra. That’s why we’re ob­sessed with The 22-Day Rev­o­lu­tion Cook­book ($42.50, out Septem­ber 20) from her trainer, Marco Borges. A fol­low-up to the 2015 best­seller about his 22-day ve­gan diet, it fea­tures 150 new plant-based recipes. Per­sonal chef not in­cluded. Life can be a nail-biter. Ac­cord­ing to a 2010 Sta­tis­tics Canada study, al­most one in four adults say that most days are “ex­tremely” or “quite” stress­ful. (Women are slightly more likely than men to ad­mit to feel­ing over­whelmed.) Girls star Zosia Mamet has part­nered with Se­cret de­odor­ant to get us talk­ing about these anx­ieties. Here’s what she has learned. Don’t build your own stres. “I come from a fam­ily of wor­ri­ers; I’m an angsty hu­man. A friend told me ‘You can’t tell your­self to re­lax; you’re go­ing to stress your­self out more.’” dis­tract your­self. “For me, it’s go­ing for a run or horse­back rid­ing, do­ing yoga or play­ing with my dog, Moose.” some worry is gooD. “There are times when a voice in your head says ‘Maybe this isn’t a sit­u­a­tion you should be in.’ It’s about learn­ing how to de­ci­pher when we’re cre­at­ing stress and when it’s try­ing to tell us some­thing very real.” Make like Dory and for­get about it. “I was at an an­niver­sary party re­cently and there was a young kid who was so em­bar­rassed to dance. I just wanted to tell him ‘Dude, you’re miss­ing out. Every­thing you’re wor­ried about ... ev­ery­one’ s just think­ing about them­selves.’”
