Stress has become a global pandemic of its own with the ongoing covid19 pandemic, endless chaos reported on the news, a crashing economy, and generalised job loss becoming a new standard of normal. Stress has quickly become a massive factor in everyone’s daily lives. Unfortunately, heightened stress levels can do a lot of damage to your mind and body, like a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, insomnia. And a list of other health issues can arise when the body is flooded with unprecedented levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
As a result, more individuals search for safe ways to destress with natural remedies. So, if you’re searching for a natural stress remedy, we have listed five of the most effective.
There are many different cannabis products, although choosing the right one isn’t nearly as challenging as you might assume. You have the option to grow your cannabis plant as well, and all you’ll need is a centurion pro trimmer, a grow light, a grow tent, a step-by-step beginners guide to growing, and of course, the right seeds. On the other hand, when choosing to buy your cannabis, stick to CBD full-spectrum oils or caps, Indica strains, and edibles that don’t contain too much THC.
Lavender is a lovely scented purple plant, and we can find lavender in numerous different products, from bath products to aerosol sprays and several others. However, when using lavender for stress, aromatherapy is best. You will need lavender-scented candles or a diffuser and lavender essential oil. Studies show that lavender can alleviate both stress and anxiety, while sleep improvements have also been noted.
For me, I have some beautiful lavender growing out on the rooftop that I can smell, enjoy and relax with when I’m feeling stressed.
Chamomile tea has been enjoyed throughout the ages to induce a peaceful night of sleep as a relaxing tea. However, with these benefits comes a direct reduction of stress, as relaxation is vital to alleviate stress. Chamomile tea is also completely safe, risks no side effects other than potential allergy reactions, which remains rare, and you can indulge in several cups a day if your stress levels are high with no concern of overdoing things.
Ashwagandha root supplements are incredibly effective at reducing stress and alleviating anxiety. However, the key is to use these supplements combined with a CBD capsule or oil to maximise the effects. In addition, the results will be gradual, as the remedy works best in cases of long-term use.
Exercise is the most natural remedy out there to aid stress, anxiety, and even depression. The effects of exercise promote the release of endorphins that help you feel happy, improving mood almost instantly. In addition, exercise will help balance and control the production of cortisol, reducing stress pretty quickly. And you don’t have to live at your local gym to enjoy these benefits, as a quick morning jog or an afternoon workout session is more than enough to reduce your stress and improve your mood.
While we aren’t offering medical advice, we’ve found that the above has worked for us and or others in reducing stress and helping you to relax. Best of luck!
