Turns out you could do with some Chamomile. You're the best kind of stressed. You can tell that you feel stressed and it comes in waves. This is the sort of stress we were biologically designed to feel. It's famously referred to as the flight or fight response. It gives us the energy to get what needs to be done, done. But it does tend to put us off our food and it can make life tiring when it becomes a pattern. What's important is that you use a class of herbs called relaxants, like Chamomile. Chamomile can seem pretty unassuming but it packs a punch when you take it the right way. Not only does it help relax a jangly nervous system it also settles an upset tummy! The trick is to use 2-3 tea bags for a medicinal dose. And to drink this strong tea 2-3 times a day at least. But do be wary of this if you're pregnant or breastfeeding as it can get too strong for you (a weaker preparation of just one tea bag is best).
