Here are 5 simple ways to lessen your stress during times of great intensity…
1 – Lean into your flower essences. Right now, one I’ve been going to is Rescue Remedy. It’s the classic 5-flower blend to help you in times of stress. It is a blend of…
🌼 Clematis – Helps refocus you when you’re off in another world/ungrounded
🌼 Cherry Plum – Helps you surrender and trust that all will be OK when you’re in fear or feeling like you’re on the edge of a breakdown
🌼 Impatiens – Helps rebalance your patience and acceptance of yourself and others when you’re feeling irritated, tense, or of course, impatient
🌼 Rock Rose – Helps you find inner peace when you’re facing challenges, terror, panic, or any deeply intense emotion
🌼 Star of Bethlehem – Helps you soothe your soul after or during shock and trauma either from a past experience or recent one. Connects you to the spiritual realms.
2 – Find herbal allies that support nervous system rebalancing. I am *loving* this oat straw herbal infusion. Simply take some dried oat straw (see my herbalism IG bubble highlights), about 1-2 oz in a large mason jar and fill with hot water. Stir and let sit for a few hours to overnight and drink a few cups a day as needed. Oat straw is high in minerals like magnesium, potassium, vitamins C, K, and manganese. It helps you flow with life and bend without breaking.
3 – Journal it out *without* any judgement. Speak your truth, if not to the world, at least to yourself and journaling is a great way to release your emotional stress and tension in a healthy way. Feel free to burn or rip up your pages when you are done as a way to release.
4 – Get direct sunlight in your eyes – it helps regulate your sleep/wake cycles, increases your serotonin, boosts vitamin D, and overall is a mood lifter. Just being outside as much as possible right now is a benefit for all!
5 – Get your booty on the ground – earthing also increases your mood and helps you reduce inflammation in your body. Mother Earth loves to support us if we’re only willing to let her help us!
