Naturopathy Tips to Reduce Your Anxiety Naturally
Eighty-four percent of the Indian labour force believes that they have experienced more stress and anxiety at work this year than in previous years. In India, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Keeping this theme in mind, let’s examine natural methods for preventing and reducing stress and anxiety.
All of us are aware that the long-term effects of stress and anxiety can be detrimental to our overall health and well-being. Our mind and body are compromised by anxiety and stress. They have internal effects on the body as well as external effects on our lifestyle, such as healthy eating, drinking, physical fitness, and sleep quality. In addition to headaches, mood swings, hair loss, and weight gain, many people experience internal body changes such as poor digestion, bloating, inflammation, and lowered immunity. Natural remedies can serve as a preventative healthcare modality and reduce stress and anxiety while boosting health and vitality.
Understanding Your Stress Reduces It!
There are four principal forms of stress:
Due to surgery, injury, exhaustion, pollution, hunger, substance abuse, and toxicity, your body experiences physical stress. In fact, any factor that interferes with your body’s normal and natural functions constitutes a source of physical stress.
Emotional factors are chiefly responsible for psychological stress. These include excessive anger or depression, harmful perceptions, high expectations, and being judgmental, among others. Other sources of stress include the need to control outcomes, information overload from the news/Internet, and anxiety brought on by excessive past and future ruminations.
Psychosocial stress can be caused by social challenges or stigma, any type of isolation, the loss of a loved one, financial difficulties, or social bullying.
Create and Maintain Balance in Your Body
- Consume seasonal, fresh, nutrient-dense foods
- Chew slowly; savour the flavour, aroma, texture, and feel of each meal.
- Get sufficient quality sleep
- Incorporate physical activity into your life, such as yoga, dancing, walking, and hiking
- Lavender aromatherapy oils and sprays are calming and balancing.
- Eliminate caffeine and drink chamomile, dandelion, or an anti-inflammatory turmeric latte to improve digestion and calm overworked nerves.
- Include nutritional supplements, such as Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and Iodine. Anxiety and stress are known to deplete essential minerals such as calcium, zinc, and magnesium, so it is best to take extra precautions during these times.
- Adapt to eastern remedies such as naturopathy, massage, and acupuncture.
- Stabilise your blood sugar to reduce your appetite.
- Maintain your gut health.
- Manage Your Thoughts
