Most of us spend our lives running to and fro, having
meetings, meeting deadlines, and doing tons of stuff
that leaves us stressed and frazzled at the end of the
day. Stress can be horrible for our health; it keeps us
from sleeping, zaps our energy, makes us look and feel
older, and can even lead to various diseases and
disorders. That’s why it’s important to take time out of
your hectic day to relax. One of the best ways to do
this is with herbal remedies. Just drink a tea or take a
natural supplement to help you feel calm and relaxed.
There are a lot of remedies for stress out there; here
are some of the most effective:
* Kava kava. This herb has not only been used for
stress relief and relaxation, but also for easing
anxiety and curing insomnia. The effects are considered
to be similar to the prescription drug valium, but
generally without the “mental fog” feeling. Since the
effects are so potent, you should be careful what you do
after taking it until you know how it affects you.
* Lavender. Many people rely on lavender and
other essential oils to soothe crying, fussy babies.
These oils have the same calming effect on adults as
well. You can massage them into your skin, put them in a
bath, or just rub a small amount on your temples for a
soothing and relaxing effect.
* Valerian. This is one of the most widely
used herbs for curing insomnia. It calms the nervous
system, making you feel calm and relaxed instead of
stressed. In addition, since it helps you get a great
night’s sleep, you’ll feel more refreshed and ready to
face the next day.
* Reishi. This is a great supplement to take
if you find your stress is caused by a constantly racing
mind. This herb produces a calm, clear mind and helps
cure anxiety without making you feel sleepy or sedated.
It can also help you sleep if you have trouble “turning
off” your brain at night.
With many prescriptions and over the counter
medications, you can see an effect almost immediately.
However, most herbal supplements require longer periods
of time to notice the full effect. If taken properly and
with patience, these remedies can provide a natural and
effective alternative to drugs with fewer side effects.
You should also talk to your doctor before starting any
herbal supplement because they may have drug
Hopefully one or more of these remedies will help you to
calm down and lead a more relaxing and peaceful life.
