All humans have different stress triggers and different ways to cope with stress. The most common stress triggers are performance pressure, financial worries or the double burden job and family. Furthermore, deadline pressure, leisure obligations and high expectations of oneself are typical stress triggers.
Effects of stress triggers
Some effects of stress are irritability, exhaustion, and lack of resilience as well as sleep disturbances. Too much stress unbalances the mental balance. But, it is not necessary to use sedatives. A good amount of healthy sleep and several effective natural remedies have a calming effect on your nerves, too.
- Oat: Oat is nervine and the anti-stress-plant, per se. Furthermore, it improves sleep and amongst others, it contains a lot of iron and B-vitamins (hence nervine). Enjoy oat in your breakfast cereal, eat good old porridge, drink a cup of oat-tea, take a relaxing bath in a bath with added oat, make a poultice with oat, take herbal or homeopathic drops; there are countless ways to take advantage of the youngest of all types of grain.
- Coffee: Coffee is component of several homeopathic combination medicines. Here, the coffee plant is used for symptoms caused by consummation of caffeine containing beverages like sleeplessness, unrest, dizziness and nervousness.
- Rose root: Rose root originates from the arctic heights of Siberia. Like oat, rose root is adaptogenic, too. Rose root has a nerve-strengthening effect and cares for serenity. Furthermore, it increases the physical and mental performance and alleviates exhaustion and tiredness.
- Valerian: Valerian probably is the most well-known “tranquilizer”. It is helpful when suffering under sleeplessness, unrest, irritability and anxiety. Furthermore, valerian is used with cramps and pain. Its fast relaxing and calming effect also cares for a physical and mental balance. Stress releasers are naturally prevented.
