Natural Anxiety Remedies You Should Try
According to the CDC, one-fifth of all Americans have suffered from mental illness. From anxiety and depression to PTSD and panic attacks, the sad reality is that this number is likely to be much higher.
We’ve put together some great, effective natural anxiety remedies you can try at home. You never know… one of them could change your life.
Mindfulness meditation has been proven to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and panic almost instantly. Even better than this, it can maintain the reduction of symptoms, too. Meditation is free and easy to start doing. Check out our beginner’s guide to mindfulness to get some ideas of how to try it.
2. Sip yourself calm.
Green Tea contains an amino acid called L-theanine, a compound which has been proven to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and the physiological signs of stress. Aim to drink 2-4 cups per day for the most benefit.
3. Use lavender.
Lavender has been proven to promote a state of calm, which makes it the perfect essential oil for everyday stressors. Before bed, during stressful periods, or even during your meditation time, inhaling lavender oil will make you feel relaxed and calm. Our Pure Rest Oil Roller is perfect for popping in your purse and applying when you start to feel anxious.
4. Calm your nerves with Lemon Balm.
Lemon Balm is a nervine plant (naturally beneficial to the nervous system) that can be drunk as a tea or applied topically. The gorgeous smelling balm will promote a calmer, more relaxed feeling and help reduce the symptoms of anxiety.
5. Up your Vitamin C
Most people only think of Vitamin C as an immune-support supplement, but in fact, it’s been proven to support the production of progesterone, a hormone that induces a calming effect on the brain. Try adding a Vitamin C supplement or just an extra glass of OJ to your morning routine.
