Natural Stress Relief Remedies

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 interactions.

Hopefully one or more of these remedies will help you to calm down and lead a more relaxing and peaceful life.
