Breathing exercises can be very good for grounding you a little in stressful situations. But they also have a great effect during panic attacks. Try to concentrate on breathing in and out deeply and consciously. You can use the 4-7-8 breathing technique as a guide, in which you first breathe in through your nose for four seconds. Then hold your breath for seven seconds until you exhale for eight seconds. Make a kind of "whoosh" sound with your lips pressed together. Repeat this process four times, ideally twice a day.

Practices for mental strengthening

Women sit cross-legged on the floor and do yoga

Meditation can really help you to find your center and calm yourself down. To do this, sit in a quiet place, close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. One yoga mantra that is very popular is "So Ham", which means "I am". The mantra is not linked to any religion and can be combined well with inhaling and exhaling. If you are in a place where you cannot meditate, visualization is a good alternative. This involves closing your eyes and imagining a calming scene. This could be your favorite beach from your vacation or the forest from your last walk, for example. Feel the peace and relaxation of this moment. Another tip is to keep a diary in which you can record your day and your feelings. This will allow you to reflect on what is bothering you and how you can deal with it.

These medicinal plants can help you with anxiety in everyday life

Angelica supports the activity of all digestive glands and optimizes the absorption of nutrients. A liver that does not have to overburden itself with digestion and the absorption of nutrients has the capacity to take care of its other hundreds of metabolic processes. This relief of the digestive system means that the body is less 'strained' and has more strength and energy left over. You feel fit, healthy and vital. This is why it is said that the liver creates vital energy from food. Bitter makes the liver happy, heart and soul happy!

Very well known is Mugwort for its ability to promote fat digestion. It stimulates the liver to produce more bile and the pancreas to release more fat-splitting enzymes. This combination is still used in traditional cuisine today. Fatty roasts are therefore seasoned with dried mugwort - and it tastes great too!

Aurum brings light back into the system as the metal of the sun. It also helps with depressive moods, as darkness spreads through the system and melancholy gains the upper hand. Aurum strengthens the connection to the self, gives trust and confidence and thus helps to overcome the dark phase.

Nervous exhaustion is usually preceded by massive, prolonged stress. During this stress, the stores of B vitamins, iron, zinc and magnesium are depleted. Oat is the perfect plant to replenish those empty stores, as it contains everything the nervous system needs to function properly.

Hemp is relaxing. Whether mental or physical tension, cannabis reduces stress levels and relaxes. Recent studies have shown that cannabis acts in the brain where anxiety arises. It reduces this process and makes people more relaxed. Hemp can also have a euphoric effect. By reducing pain and anxiety, hemp causes enthusiasm to rise, which makes you happy and confident. Some even feel invincible and decide to make big changes.

Copper is the metal of Venus and Cuprum sulfuricum has antispasmodic properties. Voluntary and involuntary muscles relax, colic and muscle cramps subside. However, cramps can also be of emotional origin and associated with stress. Here too, Cuprum sulfuricum relaxes and brings lightness back into the system.

The effect of Kava-Kava is described as being similar to benzodiazipines. Its relaxing and anxiolytic effects on a physical and psychological level reduce anxiety and restlessness. However, no short-term results are to be expected. In the studies, kava kava had to be taken for about a week before the first effects could be felt. The maximum effect was reached after approx. 4 weeks. The great advantage of kava kava is that it works well but does not cause any dependency.
