Stress affects us all. Stress is everywhere. You may notice the symptoms when trying to get your kids to spend less time on their phone, during busy times at work, when trying to manage your finances, or when coping with a challenging relationship. While a little stress is acceptable, and at times actually beneficial, too much stress can wear you down and make you sick, both mentally and physically. You can become easily agitated, frustrated, and moody, feel overwhelmed, and have difficulty relaxing and quieting your mind. This in turn can lead to physical symptoms of insomnia, upset stomach, low energy and feeling generally run-down leaving yourself susceptible to other ailments.
Stress is a part of life. The best thing you can do is to try and prevent stress overload and the health consequences that come with it. A great help in such times is a relaxing cup of tea, particularly a cup of Stress Less with its expert blend of herbs to help you back on an even keel. Also perfect for the end of day wind-down, or to have just before bed, this tea will keep your mind at ease, and feel your body relax.
If you or a loved one is feeling overwhelmed by stress, please talk to your doctor.
