$$Bini, if you live in a state of constant stress, no herbal remedy
is going to do it for you, nor will 'stress management' if that means
anything else but slowing down. Learning to put the brakes on your
hectic scheduling, as well as addressing why you feel you have to
operate at such an unhealthy speed, is your cure. Or, if you have
issues inside that drive you at this pace, addressing them is the
Everyone is entitled to at least 2 hours to themselves a day. As
impossible as that might seem for some people, it's still the
minimun 'self' time one should allow. If you have to leave the house
to get it,(from your demanding family) do it. Go for an hour walk.
Visit a quiet corner of the library. Stay up an hour later at night
after everyone else goes to sleep. But don't work. Relax. Exercise
can do wonders, but not if you're doing it to build your body. You'd
do well with an exercise helps you unwind. Stretching, yoga, etc.
Just teaching yourself to flop on the couch and stay there for an
hour and think, or watch a movie, can work.
Your body gets used to high levels of stress hormones. It becomes a
way of living. To your detriment. Retraining yourself to untense and
move more deliberately will help you. Surprisingly, once you slow
down enough so you can feel when you need a small break, or nap, or
those two hours by yourself, you'll find you still get the same
amount of work done as you always did. You'll just do it at a
healthier pace. I'm speaking from experience on this one. I'm a
workaholic because I love being productive. But often, I fail to
remember that I need rest, and a relaxed frame of mind to be truly
productive. My personal test to see how I'm taking care of myself is
to flop on the bed or couch and stay there for a half hour. If I
can't sit still, or I'm actively planning my next task, that tells me
I haven't shifted my gears down. To banish 'stress' you have to have
REAL relaxing time.
Herbal supplements and teas can help build, purify, heal, etc. your
body, but they can't manage stress. They can only help you recover
after you slash the stress from your life.
