Beat Stress and Sleep Issues Naturally Posted on 1 Feb 19:25

The sun is starting to last a little longer in to the afternoon, but February is often a tough month when it comes to a good sleep and a good mood.

Keeping up regular Vitamin D is essential as sunlight is still minimal across the UK even as we inch closer to Spring, but for more individual concerns natural heath can again save the day.

Sleeping Better

Cherry Night from Viridian is a nutritional nightcap of ingredients including Cherries, Dates, Glycine and magnesium. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance, the nervous system, normal muscle function, normal psychological function and the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.

A 150 gram tub is available on online and in-store for £24.95, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

 


Something else to try if drifting off calmly is proving difficult might be the Sweet Dreams Roller Ball from Tisserand. With relaxing ingredients such as organic lavender, bergamot and ylang-ylang, all you need to do is gently glide the smooth ball over your pulse points a little while before you tuck up.

Sweet Dreams is available online and in-store for £5.50


Thinking Clearly

‘Brain fog’ is a common side-effect of a busy life and can often indicate less than optimal circulation of blood around the body. Ginkgo Biloba is a plant found in China often found to improve circulation to the brain and improve clarity of mind and general mood.


Nature’s Aid provide 90 capsules of Ginkgo Biloba that is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, available from our online shop or in-store in Hitchin for just £9.95.

Take a Moment

With the world changing in so many ways every day, it’s so vital to take a moment for ourselves. Taking a breather, listening to our bodies, and cultivating a sense of calm are just as important as proper nutrition.

Meditation is a popular tool for many people to take a moment and reduce stress. Good places to get advice on a new meditation habit include apps such as Headspace or Calm, meditation teacher Tara Brach, or quickly search for local meditation groups online for a more social experience!
