From medicinal aids to mental exercises, there are lots of ways to gain stress relief. It’s very important that you pay attention to what your body is telling you, because it’s easy to get drawn into your job, home, or school activities and frustrations and not realize until afterwards that you’ve got a mega load of stress.

When you feel the stress building up in yourself one of the easiest ways to rid yourself of it is to stop and take a deep belly breath and exhale over the course of five seconds. This serves to halt whatever processes are making your mind overexcited and your body tense and gives you a chance to remember how relaxed is supposed to feel. Of course we don’t always notice in time to keep a lot of stress from building up.

Stress can cause all kinds of problems including fatigue, tension headaches, insomnia, and even ulcers and indigestion. Not to mention long term stressors can wear down your immune system and heart, which makes you sick, which gives you more stress and the cycle can be endless.

Fortunately, there are ways to relieve stress before or after you develop it. There are a range of herbal mixtures you can take to help relax your body and calm your mind. Try making up a hot tea with Chamomile, Lavender, and Catnip in it. These are herbs that you can grow in your garden with ease.

Taking vitamin supplements can support your body during times of stress. Vitamin A is good for the immune system, skin and eyes. A combination B vitamin pill with all of the B vitamins in it will be very effective against depression, fatigue and stress. It should include Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine, B12 and folic acid.
