It’s 2022, and it’s impossible to escape stress. Only we can learn better ways to manage our stress. Our quality of life is directly affected by managing stress and anxiety.
Eastern medicine and practices place more emphasis on avoiding diseases than curing them. It is good to create a daily routine that includes natural healing remedies. Herbal teas are a great option for this purpose. It is a simple, low-cost investment to your daily health and wellness by introducing certain herbs, botanicals, and flowers at teatime.
I have found a handful of teas and botanicals that have shown results over the past decade I spent researching them and studying their health benefits. This is supported both by scientific research and traditional medicine. You are encouraged to try any or all of these:
- Chamomile Tea is a proven natural remedy for insomnia. This tea is said to calm the mind and help you fall asleep. It’s 100% caffeine-free, so it can be enjoyed if you feel the need to unwind and slow down. Chamomile tea is a tea that almost anyone can enjoy at any hour of the day.
- Lavender Tea Inhaling the scent of lavender tea can relax our senses. The vagus nerve does all healing. Lavender can reboot your nervous system, which can soothe the vagus nerve. This can also activate our natural healing potential. Adults can also feel less anxious and depressed by drinking lavender tea.
- Spearmint has been called a miracle herb for women. It is known to improve hormone health. Our hormones play an important role in our anxiety and stress management. Women with PCOS should drink 1-2 cups of spearmint-infused tea to regulate their menstrual cycles.
- White Tea – This tea has the highest level of antioxidants globally. White tea can help us reverse the signs of ageing and combat bodily stress. It’s also used to create anti-aging skin products. White tea contains low levels of caffeine. White tea is a good choice if you are missing your caffeine from drinking herbal teas. White tea has a mild taste, and good quality white tea will be sweetened with honeydew to make it easy for everyone to enjoy.
- Matcha Green Tea is more than a trendy drink. Matcha Green Tea is the only superfood of tea. Matcha has been enjoyed for more than 100 years in Japan and China, and it has only recently become popular in India. Studies show that Matcha’s high level of polyphenols helps fight cancer-causing free radicals. Matcha has been shown to improve gut health, directly impacting our mental health. Matcha contains five times as much L-theanine as regular green tea. L-theanine, an amino acid that improves mental focus and cognitive processing, is known to improve brain reactions in stressful situations. Matcha is high-caffeine, so it should be consumed in moderation.
We all love tea, and no doubt it can be a great mood uplifter! But there’s more on offer in the world of teas, and I hope you will try a few of the ones listed here.
