Many of you know that my background is in psychology. I have two jobs - one of them teaching psychology classes at a local college, and the other working with people in the community who have mental health challenges and need assistance in daily functioning. With the latter job, a big focus of what I do is helping people find healthier ways to manage and cope with anxiety and stress.
Stress happens to all of us. There is a spectrum on our capability of handling stress - some people roll with the punches and daily hassles better than others. But regardless, we all have moments where life can feel very overwhelming. Kids get sick, cars break down, there are family tensions - all sorts of moments, both happy and sad, can knock us a little off balance.
The best ways to deal with stress are healthy ways - talking with a friend, getting out in nature, participating in a hobby. Techniques that heal our mind without causing any harm to ourselves or others. There is also a homeopathic product line that I've been using for over ten years called RESCUE
that brings natural stress relief and helps you stay calmer during difficult times. I first discovered RESCUE over ten years ago. My family was flying to Florida, and my youngest brother was experiencing significant anxiety over flying due to a traumatic experience he'd had some months earlier, flying in a thunderstorm over the Rocky Mountains. He was totally freaked out about stepping foot on a plane again, so my mom picked up RESCUE for him to try.
Non-habit forming, the ingredients include flower remedies for things like: courage and presence of mind, focus when ungrounded, patience with problems and people, balanced mind when losing control, and softening impact of shock. It immediately helped calm my brother, and after having a more positive flying experience, his anxiety lessened.
One thing I like about RESCUE is that it has no side effects. I am very sensitive to side effects, and have had some negative experiences. Because RESCUE is homeopathic, it works with my system and does not cause side effects like drowsiness. It just seems to gently take the edge off, and I feel mentally calmer.
When I was in the store picking up the Pastilles, which I have taken before, I noticed that they had a sleep liquid melts line. I decided to pick these up for Paul and I, since we both have trouble sleeping at times. I put them on the nightstand for the next time I was tossing and turning.
RESCUE sleep liquid melts include homeopathic ingredients to treat some of the same issues as the Pastilles, but also includes relief from repetitive thoughts, which is exactly what plagues me when I cannot sleep. They dissolve on the tongue, and I found the orange oil taste very pleasing. Paul and I both were very impressed with the sleep that we had after trying these. I am such a light sleeper, but felt like I slept deeper than usual, and awoke without the grogginess or headache that a sleeping pill might cause.
RESCUE is a brand that has been around for over 70 years. You can find it at places like CVS, Whole Foods, and Walgreens. It is used by millions worldwide, and I have found it to be an effective and healthy way to provide stress relief when you most need it.
