How do you React when Stressed?
What can you do when you find you are tired, stressed and becoming more and more irritable with those around you? When you know that work pressures are the cause of your stress or the children are keeping you up at night do you know what is needed to bring you back onto that even keel.
Why is it, that when we are irritable we take it out on those around us. We are less able to communicate in our usual controlled, well meaning manner, we are more likely to get upset from the small things that are happening around us.
If health is a long line and we are somewhere along that line between poor health and optimum health, how can we learn to control our reactions in order to stay more healthy, or is it the case that our health determines our reactions at that moment.
We know that a healthy body and mind will allow us to cope much better with life around us. We know that to remain healthy in body and mind we must give ourselves all that we need to maintain optimum health.
Our bodies need:
- vitamins and minerals
Our mind also needs nourishment, vitamins and minerals, sleep and exercise.
By learning more about exercising our mind we can learn how control our thoughts in order to remain calm in difficult situations, remain stress free even when tired, and use our mind to reduce our feelings of anxiousness, stress and irritability. By understanding our reactions and where they are coming from we are able to consider changing them in order to optimise our health.
Homeopathy can also help us with our reactions during specific times in our life. Here are some homeopathic remedies that can help reduce stress and irritability depending on our reactions, when and how they are happening and their cause. You can see how the remedies each have differences that help match them to your own temperament. Often just one dose of 30c will help you feel more at peace with the world.

“Last Friday I took my son to dyslexia tutoring.
What happened there blew my mind. There was mild and then growing and growing distraction that would have affected just about everyone.
Toy tables were nearby, people were milling around and talking and one and then two people came and sat at his table and were talking and he stayed almost completely focused.
It was insane to watch him do this.”
