If you suffer from stress or related conditions such as anxiety and depression, you certainly aren’t alone.

These are two of the most common illnesses in the world, but fear not; there are many natural ways you ease your stress. Spending more time in nature, yoga and CBD products all harness the power of nature to heal and balance our bodies.

Over the past decade, numerous studies have revealed that yoga has the ability to significantly lower levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Thus, this ancient practice is used in everything from cancer therapy, to substance abuse recovery, eating disorder recovery, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and even recovery from breast cancer.

Researchers believe that stress relief comes from three major sources: the yogic asanas or poses (which involve intense coordination between body and mind), controlled breathing (which lowers the heart and breathing rates) and mindfulness (yoga is often accompanied by meditation, which aims to keep us “in the present moment”).

Mindfulness is one of the most powerful ways we can stop stress in its tracks, because it allows us to escape the frequent ruminations about the past or worry about our future. When we keep the mind in the here and now, we are able to breathe better, focus more, and create a mental state that is incompatible with panic attacks and general anxiety.

YOGA AND CBD FOR STRESS

CBD is increasingly being used to battle stress, owing to its ability to react directly with cell receptors, including serotonin and dopamine receptors. It is vital not to confuse CBD with THC (the cannabinoid responsible for the ‘high effect’ of marijuana). While THC can have many benefits, CBD offers numerous positive effects for its users while leaving their mental state mostly unchanged.

CBD is often taken as an oil but also used topically to treat skin conditions and inflammation, or even consumed in sweets like gummies. It is just one of the many naturally occurring compounds found in all cannabis plants. Because of how CBD interacts with serotonin and dopamine receptors in the brain and nervous system, more of these neurotransmitters can flow through the body, resulting in a greater sense of calm and wellbeing.

 

A MULTI-LAYER APPROACH TO BATTLING STRESS

If you think you may have anxiety or depression, it is important to check in with a doctor. Working alongside your therapist or other health professional, you can take many approaches to  battling these conditions.

It is important to tackle stress from a multi-layered perspective, too. Holistic activities , Tai Chi, mindfulness meditation, and time spent in nature have proven to be a useful complementary therapy for anxiety and other stress-related conditions. CBD, an almost miraculous supplement made from natural hemp, can be an important part of our anti-stress toolkit too.

Whatever approach you take, if you make time to care for yourself and your wellbeing then every other part of your life will seem a little bit easier.

As a Reiki Practitioner I do regular reiki self healing and meditation on myself in the comfort of my own little home.  Sometimes I feel I  get too comfortable in my own surrounding that I forget that there is a world out there full of things to learn and people to meet.  So I decided I would try a new thing this week which was Tai Chi.

I found a little class in a church not to far from me and took my mum along to check it out.  We were greeted with a warm welcome by many of the women in the class, who said to us “don’t worry if you cant follow it, its took us years to learn and we still muck it up, but its a wonderful class”  So with those words I felt relaxed and welcome and was looking forward to the class.

The lady taking the class was also a Reiki Teacher and this came across in her class, almost immediately I could feel the energy in the room and it  was such a wonderful calming energy.   The teacher came over to me in the break to ask if I had taken a class before, which I had not.  She said I looked so peaceful and really flowed with the movements so I told her I was also a Reiki Practitioner and this class seemed perfect for  me to keep on developing my energy.

So needless to say I will be back again next week, If its good enough for Bruce Lee its good enough for me.
