Calm in a Busy World
For instance, some of us may use comfort eating as a way to feel more safe and secure. If uncontrolled, it can spiral into a weight issue that adversely affects our health. Excessive smoking and drinking are also common habitual behaviors that people fall into to manage daily stress. The negative effects of these are well documented. On the other hand, some of us may exercise and get active to destress, but some people may take this to the extreme and over-exercise, which ironically raises the stress hormone, cortisol, with its own ill effects. It’s all about balance.
Finding that balance is what helps to sustain calm in the busy world we live in. And it’s not as hard to attain as you think! As with most things, you get what you focus on. If you turn your attention toward restructuring your life and rebalancing, then inevitably, you will succeed!
Supplements and plant remedies can also prove invaluable. Bear in mind that a multitude of natural, plant remedies have been used worldwide for centuries. We in the West are just now rediscovering the power of plants for health and healing, with great benefit.
