5 Remèdes Naturels Contre le Stress - La Boite à Grains

We've only just come out of summer, and vacations already seem a long way off... With the arrival of autumn, a general drop in energy can be felt, with the added bonus this year of the stress of the ongoing pandemic, which brings with it complicated and uncertain organizations that generate physical and mental fatigue. Add to this the imminent arrival of the cold season and the changeover to winter time, and you've got another layer on top..4, 5

We can improve our lifestyle by paying attention to iron deficiencies, particularly in women. If we look at our diet, autumn brings an abundance of harvests, with their wealth of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. It's important to have a good supply of proteins and fewer fast sugars, for a healthy, energizing diet..4, 5

Sleep, for its part, offers us an anti-fatigue strategy for complete recovery, both physical and psychological. To avoid irritants, it would be a good idea to review bedding, lighting and sleep rhythms.

If our lifestyle is tiring, we can ask ourselves about our physical activity, stress, consumption of stimulants, pressure at work, etc..4, 5

Stress comes in many forms

Symptoms of fatigue, sleep disturbance, functional pain and a drop in blood sugar levels are all signs that can give us cause for concern..4, 5

Control generates stress

When we set ourselves high standards and take everything to heart, constantly thinking about it, always being in control and in command, then it's more than an overload of tasks to perform, it's how we interpret and react to them that leads to exhaustion. Lack of flexibility and letting go. When we fail to solve a certain number of problems, our organism remains constantly on alert and becomes exhausted..4, 5

Self-confidence and emotions

Far from being a fair assessment of who we are or what we can achieve, self-confidence is a state of mind, which varies, and therefore also conceals certain emotions such as hypersensitivity, depression, shame, fear, etc..4, 5

Rather than masking the effect of stress, it's better to pinpoint its sources, uncover stress factors and the way we deal with them, and identify what we can control and what is beyond our control.

Making room for letting go

  • Embrace your emotions
  • Taking a step back
  • Staying in the present
  • Accepting generosity
  • Making wishes come true
  • Sharing pleasure 2, 4, 5
  • Believe in your potential, identify negative beliefs
  • Setting goals, accepting failure and working on your communication skills make it possible to reverse the tendency to control.

What's more, you can benefit from a number of approaches, such as relaxation and/or meditation, sports, art, martial arts and so on.

5 natural remedies for stress : GABA and vitamin B6

The GABA is a widespread chemical messenger in the brain. It is the main central nervous system inhibitory neurotransmitter naturally produced by the body. Its function is to decrease nerve activity in the neurons to which it binds. Some researchers believe that GABA also plays a role in the ability to control fear and/or anxiety, which manifests itself as neuronal overexcitation. The vitamin B6 is a precursor of GABA. Together, they help promote temporary relaxation.6
