Stress. That thing we all have and don’t want. We may all be stressed about different things but chances are we’re still stressed. Maybe it’s the kids, husband, finances, the car won’t start or the job you don’t like. Either way, there are ways to deal with stress naturally that are really working for me and I hope will work for you as well.
Ways to Deal with Stress Naturally
Stress isn’t always a bad thing. Simple things like changes to your routine from a new job, travel or even a new baby can all cause stress. Sometimes when dealing with stress, I find it really helps to step back and breathe deep. When I’m really busy and stressed out, I get so focused on my goals or the problem I need to deal with that it’s hard to be objective. The first step is to take a moment for you to evaluate and calm down. After you’ve done that, try a few of these ways to deal with stress naturally:
- Yoga or meditation. Yoga or meditation can be a great way to slow your heartbeat and get focus back. There are days I feel like my mind is going a million miles a second. Sitting cross legged on the floor with your eyes closed for a few minutes (or more) can help slow all that down.
- Soothe the senses. I’m very aware of scents so when I’m feeling very stressed, I try a candle scented with lavender essential oil or a lavender bubble bath or lavender linen spray.
- Try herbal teas like chamomile to relieve stress. I find that quiet time with a cup of chamomile tea and a scented candle can do wonders for my stress level. If you’re not a fan of chamomile tea, try green tea instead. Studies show it can help with anxiety.
- Aromatherapy. For a more channeled approach, try aromatherapy. I infuse lavender and rose an a diffuser to help when stress gets really bad.
- Exercise. It may not seem it but if you’re really stressed, a great way to relax is to pour yourself into a workout.
- Avoid stimulants. I know it seems like coffee would be a great choice when you’re stressed but you should really avoid foods like coffee, tea and chocolate when you’re stressed. Caffeine can make the problem worse.
- RESCUE Pastilles from Bach Original Flower Remedies provide natural stress relief. It’s a natural and homeopathic way to stress less, stay calm and be in control.
