Natural Remedies for Stress & Anxiety

Written by Kris Dano

Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at one time or another. The basic difference between stress and anxiety is that stress is a spontaneous reaction to a situation. In contrast, anxiety can be defined as a reaction to stress. Stress can cause difficulty in sleeping, feeling of pressure, depression, and others if not tackled on time. In comparison, anxiety can cause fear or apprehension, which can be very mild or even severe at times.

Today’s lifestyles and ways of living are the major cause of stress in most people. They encounter it almost every day, and it can hamper their thought process, mindset, focus, and intellect. Dealing with stress and anxiety can be traumatic, but don’t worry, it is treatable. While some people aid themselves with medication, others cure it with natural remedies.

Here are a few Natural Remedies that Can Alleviate Stress and Anxiety effectively:

  1. Exercise 

Exercise is one of the most important things you can do to reduce stress hormones arising in any situation.

It is a great way of burning anxious energy, and researchers as well brace this method. The benefits of exercise are at their peak when the physical activities during exercise are performed daily. As it is beneficial for not just your physical health; it’s also good for mental well being. Studies also manifest that exercise can help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and mitigate the effects of stress.

Seeing the positive effects of exercises in combating stress, psychologists are now studying- ‘how a 10-minute walk can relieve anxiety, stress, and, even depression.’ Some studies have concluded that exercise can work quickly in elevating the depressed mood of people prone to stress. Although the effects may be temporary, they show that a simple physical activity can relieve stress and anxiety for several minutes and even hours. 

  1. Interacting With Animals

It is experienced by a myriad of people and even shown by studies that interacting with animals can be a perfect remedy for a stressful day. The majority of pet owners are clear about the fact that their pet is a reason for their immediate joys. Sharing their lives with animals, such people are less prone to the symptoms causing stress and anxiety. Many pets, including dogs and cats, can lower stress, anxiety and counter depression. Moreover, a pet can also help in the healthy aging process of its owners by bringing joy to life, boosting vitality.

Interacting with animals is one of the best ways to treat stress. It has been found in studies too that people who have a pet experience the greatest health gain. A pet does not mean that it has to be a dog or cat. Even watching fish in the aquarium can help in reducing stress and relieve anxiety.

  1. Practicing Meditation

Meditation is a proven method to tackle stress and anxiety for thousands of years. Earlier, considered as a way to understand the deeper meaning of the sacred and mystical forces of life, meditation nowadays is beneficial in fighting many illnesses that are incurable by other means. For this reason, meditation is often used for relaxation and relieving both stress and anxiety. Many types of meditation are practiced today by people of all ages, that include mindfulness, spiritual, focused, mantra, and even yoga is a type of meditation.

Meditation, if practiced daily for as few as 10 minutes, can help in greatly reducing the level of stress and decrease anxiety to achieve a sense of peace and relaxation. Meditation is also considered a type of complementary medicine, which can build a profound state of relaxation and bring serenity to mind.

It has many health benefits like:

  • Reducing Stress
  • Controlling Anxiety
  • Promoting emotional health and mental stability
  • Bringing serenity to the mind
  • Improving sleep cycle
  • Helping in maintaining blood pressure
  1. Listening To Music

In stressful times, listening to music can make you feel elated. Music is a proven method that is known to build concentration and improve focus. It can be utilized to regulate mood, bringing calmness, serenity, and reducing impulsive behaviors.

It has been long proven that listening to soothing music not only can improve mental health. But, it can also boost physical health. Scientifically speaking, music helps keep our minds sharp and builds awareness, particularly in our senescence. Anyone can use music in day to day life to achieve stress benefits and counter anxiety.

This an eight on eight spring tackle football team composed of energetic 9,10 & 11year olds. The Coaches William Bell and Bobby Candidate are very passionate about their players, often offering assistance to the parents who can’t afford the fees.
