Did you notice that the title says “Symptoms of Stress” instead of “Stress”?
Does that mean, the herbs I am going to tell you are only effective for stress symptoms and not for the root cause of stress?
Yes! You guessed it right. We can only work on symptoms of stress using herbs. To work on the root cause, you need the right understanding of stress and smart approaches like time management, the concept of boundaries, priorities, healthy body and mind, etc.
Just to give you a clear idea, here is the definition of stress:
In Simple words, Stress is the body’s reaction to a challenge or demand. Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension.
Feeling frustrated, sad, tired, and angry are the negative impacts of stress, while excitement, motivation, etc. are positive sides of stress.
As stress is a very part of our existence, we cannot eliminate it completely, but we can manage it so it doesn’t harm our body/mind.
That’s why I told you that we cannot use herbs to deal with stress, but we can 100% deal with the SYMPTOMS.
Each and every product available in the market for stress management, stress relief or whatever the marketing strategy is, but that product is only working at the level of symptoms of STRESS.
If you understand this fact, you know that working on symptoms is always a temporary relief. But, it’s essential to manage the symptoms of stress as they can negatively impact your health in the long run.
Here are the Mangata Apothecary STRESS + SLEEP products that help you with instant stress relief.
