Magical Teas to Conquer Stress

With how fast daily life has become, sometimes people forget they also need to rest, relax, and recharge. 

Stress is a common thing that everyone experiences. However, if it becomes frequent enough or severe enough, chronic stress can lead to serious health problems. If you experience chronic stress then you might eventually suffer from various heart diseases, Type 2 diabetes, or high blood pressure. Imagine, getting sick because you didn’t give yourself time to relax or do something you love during the week.

Now with the coronavirus pandemic added to the list of things that the public is worrying about, the need to unwind and relax is becoming more and more important for most people. Lucky for us, there are plenty of options to relax and relieve stress. You can do things that you love, such as exercising or listening to music, or you can take supplements in the form of capsules, tablets, oils, or teas.

Here is a list of teas you can try for relieving stress and anxiety:

Holy Basil 

The warm, sweet scent from holy basil tea can help you relieve stress from work. If you are having a bad day at work, you can apply this herb as an essential oil on your temples and let the scent do its magic.

BodyK offers a tea made from this incredible plant. The Holy Basil Tea provides the same benefits as the essential oil version. It will also help you sleep better, so that you can recharge for tomorrow.  

Ashwagandha

For thousands of years, ashwagandha, a plant native to India and North Africa, has been used to relieve stress and improve a person’s ability to concentrate. 

Ashwagandha works to reduce your cortisol levels, so that you can beat out stress. Cortisol is one of the hormones released by the adrenal gland, but it’s more commonly known as the stress hormone. Cortisol isn’t all bad as it supports many key functions in the body. 

Aside from helping you relieve stress, ashwagandha tea can also help control your blood sugar levels and reduce your risk of getting cancer. Body K’s Ashwagandha Tea can help you relieve stress and get to sleep soundly at night.

Valerian Root

We’ve all come home after a tiring day at work and been unable to get a healthy amount of sleep. One solution is BodyK’s Valerian Root Tea. This tea helps reduce the feelings of anxiety and stress, so that you can get a healthy night’s sleep. You can try this wonderful tea before going to bed or right after a tiring day at work. 

This herb is native to Europe and Asia, and has a strong, earthy scent caused by the compounds that are in its roots. These compounds are what provide the sedative benefits that will help lull you to sleep. 

Winning Against Stress

Stress is a normal part of life. Don’t let it overwhelm you! There are many ways to fight stress as long as you are mindful of it. Just by doing things you love, you can help yourself immensely.

To help fight stress, you can try herbs and supplements. Teas are a great option because you’re letting your senses indulge in the calming, wonderful scent and flavors of healthy herbs.
