In the last few months, many of us have started to return to work. Over the last year, many of us were able to work from the comfort of our own homes, which meant that we didn’t have to worry about the stress of going to work every day.
For some of us, returning to work has served as a much-needed break from staring at the same four walls that we have become well acquainted with over the last year. However, for some returning to work has only brought back feelings of stress and anxiety that we were able to push to the back of our minds for the best part of a year.
If you are someone that has noticed a drastic increase in your stress levels recently, you may not know what to do in order to deal with it. You may have forgotten all of your usual coping methods, which means that you are just going through the motions of trying to suppress any feelings that you may have and unfortunately, you may be fighting a losing battle. Some people turn to medication to deal with stress-related problems, but if you are someone that wants to go down a more natural route then you have found the right place. Here are 7 natural remedies for stress and how to take them.
Something that you may not have considered when trying to combat your stress is the powerful effects that lavender has on your body. Many stores such as Lush actually sell ranges dedicated to lavender, due to the fact that lavender naturally causes you to feel relaxed. We recommend investing in a lavender spray that you can put on your bedding and pillows, which you can then lie down in for a little downtime and stress relief.
If you are someone that is feeling a lot of stress right now and you are looking for a fast and natural solution, then we recommend that you try THC. These days you can actually find delta 8 for sale at most dispensaries and vendors. If you are not sure what delta 8 is, it is essentially the same as your typical THC plant and has the same effects, aside from the psychoactive effects. It is commonly smoked in a vape, which means you can conveniently have it whenever you feel like you are overwhelmed by stress and it is well known to give both physically and mentally relaxing effects.
If you are someone that wants to relieve stress but you do not necessarily want to put anything in your body, then why not try out some exercise. When you exercise your body releases something known as dopamines which can help to relieve any feelings of stress that you may be experiencing. Exercise is also a great way to vent any anger or frustration and get out any pent-up aggression that you may be feeling.
A very common practice that you may have noticed all around the world is when people have a stressful day, they like to unwind and sip some herbal tea. Herbal teas such as green tea, lavender tea, and even lemon tree have relaxing properties that help to break down any feelings of stress that you may be experiencing. You can actually purchase teas that are specifically designed to help relieve stress and they are also great for your body in general as herbal teas can encourage sleep and digestion, which we all need help with every now and again.
This may seem obvious, but one of the best ways that you can try and combat feelings of anxiety is through sleep. Something that you may know is that feeling exhausted can only increase feelings of anxiety and so naturally, making sure that you are well-rested can lessen these feelings of stress and can help your brain return to its normal function, which will allow you to rationalize your emotions much easier and work through any stress that you may be feeling. Plus, sleep is always good for your body so you may as well try to gain as much as you possibly can.
Sometimes your body can fall into feelings of stress because you are simply not getting the nutrients you need. This is your body’s natural defense mechanism and so if you feel as though you aren’t exactly being yourself. There are actually supplements that you can take that are specifically designed to help overcome anxiety, such as a lemon balm or Kava Kava, which is a psychoactive supplement that can help you relax and forget about any stressful day that you may have had. Even basic supplements such as omega 3 can help with your brain function, which will reduce feelings of anxiety.
If you are someone that constantly feels stress and you can not be without your morning coffee, then perhaps you should start looking at correlations. Though caffeine feels like a must-have for being able to complete your daily tasks, caffeine can actually make any feelings of stress that you are having much worse. Anxiety increases your heart rate, which is also an effect of being stressed. For this reason, you should try and cut down on coffee and look at more natural energy sources like fresh fruit and teas.
