4 Natural Remedies for Anxiety

teaThere are times when you are going to get anxious. Life just has too many unplanned events for a totally smooth ride. When anxiety comes, though, control does not have to be lost, and it does not need to turn into a complete meltdown if you have an anxiety disorder.

Instead of doing nothing and letting the anxiety grow, there are several natural remedies that you can take to help you relax. While some will work faster than others, they certainly are worth finding out which one will benefit you the most.

1. Chamomile Tea

A cup of Chamomile tea has been known for a long time to be able to help people relax. It can calm anxiety and prevent panic attacks. It is also good for insomnia, and can help with other things, such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammation, cramps, the flu, migraines, and more.

2. Green Tea

This power-packed common drink has the benefit of reducing blood pressure and yet it enables you to stay alert. Tests showed that anxiety-prone people were calmer and yet still focused. The key was to take about 200 milligrams of L-theanine beforehand, which is the calming agent in green tea.

3. Valerian Root

When you need some sleep, the herbal supplement valerian is a sedative. In Germany, it has been approved as a sleep aid. It is best taken in a capsule form before you go to bed – but not earlier. Some people like to get even more sedative power by taking it with chamomile or lemon balm.

4. Exercise

When you are getting anxious, a good workout is one excellent way to cope with it. It can help you with anxiety and depression. Since anxiety is often connected to being ill or having poor health, getting in good shape can eliminate that problem, as well as helping you feel good.
