Overcoming Christmas Stress
It's so easy to get caught up in Christmas Stress. We seem to put ourselves under a lot of stress when we take on more than is humanly possible to achieve. Have you put yourself under a whole lot of additional pressure?? You know the scenario – too much to do in too little time! And the result is, instead of being a fun, family occasion, Christmas seems to lose its magic.
We all talk about stress, but what is it?
Well to start with its different for each of us. But we're stressed when we have to do something more that we're capable of doing - either because of lack of confidence, skills or time.
But how does "being stressed" feel like to you?
I've guessed this is what happens to you, because it happens to me too.
Anxious, irritable, perhaps even a little intolerant?
Under confident and unable to sleep?
The Bach Flower Remedies (perhaps you call them Essences) are a simple and natural way of healing and soothing unwanted (negative) feelings. And there are several remedies, that when mixed together, will sooth all your fears, worries and your irritability - and help you sleep too.
Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower Remedies can help with every one of these feelings.
Choosing the remedy that suits you best can be difficult. So, I’ve got some FREE Bach Flower Guides to help you choose for remedies.
I believe that the keystone of our personality and our happiness is confidence. If you don’t have much self-confidence, that’ll allows fears and anxieties to surface along with feelings of you ‘getting it wrong’. So, let’s start there.
Healing the stress
Larch is the self-confidence remedy. If you take it as I suggest, then after just 3 days you’ll begin to feel more confident – and you’ll start to look forward to that Christmas party you’re dreading!
Mimulus is one of the remedies for anxiety. If you know what you’re worried about (not enough money, having too much to do and not enough time, getting ‘the right’ presents etc?) If you know what you’re worried about, Mimulus will help.
Rock Rose (it’s in Rescue Remedy). Sometimes, when you’re anxious about having too much to do, you feel you cannot possible manage to get it all done, that’s the time when your anxiety can rise and you feel a little panicky. Rock Rose will give you the courage to get on with the day and is one of the reasons why Rescue Remedy is taken by millions, world-wide.
Impatiens. Have you noticed that when you’re anxious you become irritable? People who go so slowly when you’ve got so much to do, irritate you? (Impatiens is another remedy that’s in Rescue Remedy).
White Chestnut. Don’t you hate it when, even though you’re exhausted after a hectic day and you gratefully sink into your bed, your mind kicks off like a merry-go-round on full speed? The same thoughts keep going around and around; you go over the conversations of the day for no reason! And you just don’t seem to be able to stop them! White Chestnut will stop those thoughts and bring you a peaceful sleep.
(There are several manufacturers of Bach Flower Remedies and they all have different names their own particular brand of Rescue Remedy. But it is always made from the same 5 remedies. My brand of choice is Healing Herbs and their 'Rescue Remedy' is called 5 Flower. No matter which company makes it, it's all the same and it all works).
Rescue Remedy. As I mentioned millions of people take Rescue Remedy every day. It is a mix of 5 different remedies (2 of which I’ve mentioned above) and, if you feel anxious or panicky, this will help you.
As your anxiety and panic is healed and soothed, you’ll cope with the day better – but Rescue Remedy will not heal your lack of confidence – you need Larch do that! Although Rescue Remedy will reduce your anxiety and panicky feelings, it will not stop the merry-go-around of thoughts. You need White Chestnut to do that.
