Stress, tension and anxiety are common complaints these days. Everyone has to-do lists that never get finished, we have so much on our minds that our concentration suffers and we are constantly worrying. We don't get around to relaxing. But this has unpleasant consequences for our physical and mental health. Therefore, this blog contains 4 tips to completely unwind.

The importance of relaxation

Relaxation seems like a luxury and not something that is really important for our health. But it really is. If you are always stressed, your body is in survival mode: it wants to fight or flee. Your body produces stress hormones as a result, and these can cause high blood pressure, sleep problems and heart disease. Chronic stress can even undermine your immune system.

In addition, your mental well-being also suffers from stress. Stress is often associated with anxiety symptoms, concentration and memory problems, brain fog and depressive symptoms. Therefore, it is important to completely unwind from time to time. This can allow you to release tension, which has powerful positive effects on the body and mind. Regular really good relaxation can reduce the likelihood of chronic complaints. Relaxing also helps you unwind mentally. You can sleep better, enjoy what you do again and anxiety symptoms can also diminish. Are you stiff with tension? Then use the tips below to unwind.

Tips for unwinding

To bring more relaxation into your life, you can use relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation. But nature also has many soothing herbs that can help you find your inner peace more easily.

1. Yoga

A good way to learn how to relax is yoga. There are all kinds of different styles (Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, to name a few). It can be useful to read more about these styles first, to see which would suit you. During a yoga session, you do a number of postures, practising balance, strength and flexibility. At the same time, there is a focus on the breath. Through this focus on your body and breathing, you release your tension and stress. In addition, there is usually a focus on meditation, which can also help you completely unwind.

2. Meditation

Have you meditated before? If not, now is an excellent time to start. When it comes to meditation too, there are different ways you can do it. You can sit or lie down, but walking meditation is also possible. Many people think that meditation means that you stop thinking and it becomes quiet in your head. However, this is not the case. You distance yourself from your thoughts, notice them and let them go. You observe what is happening in your body and mind.When you stop going along with your thoughts, they naturally settle down. You can search books or the internet to find which form of meditation or mindfulness suits you best. Meditation is a proven technique to reduce stress and anxiety symptoms. So it is definitely worth a try.

3. Unwind with natural remedies

Nature also has a lot to offer if you are looking for rest and relaxation. Below are some herbs, which you can take in the form of capsules, a cup of tea or tinctures.


Valerian is one of the most well-known and widely used herbs, which can help with anxiety, stress and sleep problems. The way valerian works is that it increases levels of GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) in the brain. This neurotransmitter helps regulate feelings of anxiety and stress, allowing you to relax better. Valerian is available as a capsule or as a tea (in combination with CBD and other herbs).


Passionflower is another herb you can use when you want to completely unwind. This climbing plant originates from the southern US. Passionflower is suitable for anyone suffering from anxiety, tension and sleep problems. This herb also has a relaxing effect due to its alkaloids, which increase levels of GABA in the brain. Passionflower tea or extract (from Mystic Herbs or Fit Up) has a calming effect and can help improve your mood.

Blue Lotus

The beautiful, soothing Blue Lotus is a water lily, which grows naturally in Egypt. For centuries, people there have known of its calming powers. Possibly the effect of this plant is because it increases serotonin levels in the brain. Added to this, this plant can improve your mood, making you feel more cheerful. In higher doses, Blue Lotus has a mild hallucinogenic effect, so keep a close eye on the amount you take.

4. Aromatherapy

Those suffering from stress or agitation can also use aromatherapy. Scents have a lot of impact on our mood. That is why evaporating lovely fragrant oils can help us calm down. Put a burner next to your bed when you go to sleep, or near you when you meditate. Relaxing fragrances are Lavender, Jasmine, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Bergamot or Cedarwood. Choose a scent that relaxes you. You can put a few drops in a vaporiser or aroma burner or in your bath water.

As you can see, there are many ways to bring more relaxation into your life. Schedule regular time for rest, you will find that it do you good. And don't forget, there are many other ways to reduce anxiety and stress. Look in our shop, for instance, at CBD oil or microdosing truffles. These natural remedies are also suitable to use for stress, anxiety and sleep problems.
