[ HERBAL SELF-CARE ] ~ from Herbco
There's no denying that we're living in uncertain, turbulent times. The world has changed for all of us in ways that has ramped up the Stress-O-Meter considerably – and it may be some time yet before we feel stable. This is especially true if family finances have been adversely impacted along the way, or if you’ve suffered the loss of a job altogether. You may find yourself worn thin from struggling with new software and applications as you work and create remotely, while filling the role of teacher, coach, chef and (oh, my!) the family hair stylist all at the same time. For those who live alone, it can be challenging to find new ways to feel connected.
Stress affects each of us differently, but long-term stress can easily manifest physically and mentally in even the most balanced of people. Digestion, sleep, mental clarity, mood and even the immune system can suffer over time. Fortunately, there are many ways to practice self-care while you continue to care for the world and the people around you. Mindfulness techniques such as yoga, meditation, journaling, gardening, breathing exercises and adhering to a healthy diet (and heck, eat a piece of chocolate cake now and then) can improve your emotional outlook and physical well-being significantly. Here we offer a few simple herbal formulations to help you nurture yourself.
