I was having a conversation with one of my clients last week about teas. Specifically, teas that relief anxiety symptoms.
But before I start talking, remember to consult your doctor before ingesting anything that may help you. 😊
Also, remember that I’m not a doctor and I’m not suggesting nor recommending anything. I’m just sharing information that may help.
As you may be aware, anxiety can prevent you from having a restful night's sleep. Some people ingest Benadryl to help them sleep but they wake up tired and sluggish.
Tea works to help you relax and sleep well without the sluggish side effects. And it’s food!
Tea is truly calming and relaxing.
Tea can help you, your mind and muscles relax along with a short five-minute meditation. You can also grab a cup of your tea, read a bit of your book and let your mattress support you. Ahhhh...
You can also dip your finger in your favorite essential oil blend (lavender & copaiba) and massage your temples. These practices can truly help with severe and chronic anxiety.
Always do your own research, just because it’s food, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with side effects. Think dairy, gluten and corn just to name a few.
Here are some of the teas we talked about:
· Passion Flower
· Lemon Balm
· Green Tea
· Rose Tea
· St. John Wort
Ginger can also help with the nausea and stomach pain associated with being overly anxious.
One of the most important things to remember when experiencing anxiety is to know that it will pass.
Here are 4 tips:
1. Physically remove yourself from the emotional space.
2. If you find yourself sitting, stand up and move.
3. If you’re driving, stop the car at a safe place and walk, shake that shit off!
4. If you’re at work, go to the bathroom.
Wherever you’re at, MOVE that energy!
If you can't physically move, pick an object in the space your in and say what it is aloud. Example: I see a ball, it's round, it's blue and yellow, it's small, it is 5 feet away from me.... and breathe. Breathe deeply and fully.
All is Energy.
Emotions are Energy too!
You got this!
