Here may be several reasons why you may need to lift your mood, you may feel low in energy, lack motivation or feel easily fatigued. The best chance of overcoming this is by first being in control of your health.
Drinking herbal teas can help you de-stress and reduce your low mood. Here are a few recommendations and a brief description of what effect they have on your body.
Lemongrass improves blood circulation which ultimately clears up your skin by treating oily textures. It’s also great for reducing anxiety and stress, as well as promoting sleep. The lemongrass aroma can also be used to freshen the air and uplift your mood.
Valerian can help improve your sleep and reduces stress and anxiety. It also has hormonal benefits, through menstrual relief and the reduction of menopause symptoms.
Ginger tea can be made by slicing pieces of ginger and adding them to boiling water. Full of nutrients and vitamins, ginger is also the perfect herbal tea for relaxing the body and mind.
Saffron influences the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, which gives off a feel-good signal, resulting in a happier state. It has been shown to be beneficial for mood swings associated with PMS and those who feel like day to day activities are a chore.
We’ve landed ourselves in the centre of a love affair with turmeric. Its known best as an anti-inflammatory aid, but turmeric also helps improve wellbeing and mood as it influences both serotonin and dopamine – the feel-good hormones.
It’s important to remember that these teas will not be the single answer to your ailments. Always seek advice from a qualified herbal therapist.
