If you suffer from stress, you are definitely not alone! Stress is something almost everyone deals with. As a matter of fact, 70% of adults in the United States say they feel stress on a daily basis. Depending on your job, habits, and lifestyle choices, you may be experiencing more than the average person. I know firsthand how debilitating stress and anxiety can be. Before I started using these natural stress remedies below, I used to wake up every morning stressed out, wondering how and when I would find relief. These effective natural stress remedies have improved my life tremendously, allowing me to live a happier, more productive existence.
The month of April is nationally recognized as stress awareness months so I thought it was the perfect time to share the 4 most effective natural stress remedies to help you live an easier and more enjoyable life. Furthermore, if you use all 4 of these methods conjointly, you will achieve the best results (I use all 4 every day).
Natural Stress Remedies…
Exercise is by far one of my favorite natural stress remedies. Not only does it allow you to get fresh air and clear your mind, but the science shows exercise lowers a stress hormone called cortisol. The more cortisol you have in your body the more stressed you will feel.
Furthermore, exercise releases endorphins into the body which are natural chemicals that act as a painkiller to improve mood. Studies show people who exercise regularly are less likely to experience stress and depression.
I know you are probably busy with work, family, and other obligations. Whether it’s 15 minutes of walking around a city or park or an hour of heavyweight training, get out and get your movement in. I promise you will feel calmer and more focused when you are finished.
Supplements are another one of my favorite natural stress remedies. I find it helps my clients and I stay calm and relaxed during the most anxiety-provoking times. My favorite supplement to promote a calm mood is CBD. CBD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. As a relativity new remedy, based on experience, it is no surprise early clinical studies are showing CBD as a promising treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
Every morning I take 1 Priscotty Pure Nano CBD capsule and about 15 minutes later I feel calm and collected. Most of my customers find our CBD helps alleviate their stress, here are some of their experiences:
“I would definitely recommend the water-soluble CBD powder to anyone! I have been taking it for 3 weeks now and there is a big difference in my daily life. I sleep like a baby and have less anxiety. Soon I will be able to stop taking my anxiety pills!” – Evelyn Lam
“I’d recommend Priscotty Pure’s Nano CBD Capsules to anyone but especially to those suffering from anxiety. It has worked wonders for me and, I will continue taking them.” – Emily Regan

Meditation is a practice of mindfulness. It works by removing disorderly, negative, harmful thoughts from your mind and replacing them with calm, positive ones. A magnitude of research suggests that meditation can help you feel more balanced and tranquil by relieving anxiety.

4. Deep Breathing
Quick, short breaths are a common symptom of anxiety. This type of breathing actually increases your heart rate, makes you feel dizzy, and further increases your risk of a panic attack.
When you feel the anxiety setting in, try to be mindful of the way you are breathing. Slow your breathing down by deliberately taking deep breaths. This will help reduce anxiety by restoring normal breathing patterns.
