11. Chamomile Tea
It is well known that chamomile has a very subtle and soothing fragrance, which is clinically proven to have natural healing effects when applied on the skin. However, it can perform more than that. It has rich flavonoids to aid with digestion. Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties to protect the body from further infections. One of its flavonoids called luteolin helps in improving a plethora of health conditions. In fact, it acts as an anti-spasmodic and pain reliever. So, the next time you face that jittery moment or stress, just have few sips of chamomile tea to return to normal. To try the remedy, follow the steps given below:
- Step 1: Take two teaspoons of chamomile flowers and one bowl of water.
- Step 2: Boil the water for ten minutes; let it become warm.
- Step 3: Steep the mixture and then consume it.
How Does This Work?
Glycine, an amino acid in the urine can easily relieve the cramps and muscle spasms. It also contains proteins that can act as a natural muscle relaxant. Thanks to the flavonoid — luteolin and apigenin. The first gives benefits such as pain relief, reduction of fever and returning the body to normal condition. The second one acts as a sedative and reducing the symptoms of stress and anxiety.
Chamomile Tea Is Not Good, If:
- You have a history of being allergic to pollens, chrysanthemums, asters and other family members of Asteraceae.
- You are using cyclosporine or warfarin. They both have a narrow therapeutic index.
10. Handle Your Emotions Effectively
There can be situations where you may feel that the control is slipping out of your hand, but as the wise men say “In the case of adverse circumstances, say the words carefully” – in other words, handle the response perfectly. Management of stress is more about standing on your legs and taking control of the thoughts, emotions, schedule, and the environment. The best part will come when you deal with problems, or shall we say ‘challenges’? The best stress management can be described as those in which you can control a situation, immediate change of response and reaction if you have to, at the same time maintaining the self-dignity, prioritizing the relevant tasks and choosing the best time for relaxation.
