Unfortunately, the stress of college doesn’t ever dissipate, even after graduating. I’ve been done with school for about a year and I am still learning to handle my daily stress. Someone recommended Bach flower remedies to me to help with stress management, in addition to my efforts with being active, hanging out with friends, and occasionally taking an aspirin. Bach flower remedies are diluted flower material that are believed to contain healing properties.
I was a little skeptical of Bach flower remedies at first, but after adding them to my daily eating habits, I’m happy to say I’ve felt a difference. The remedies come in small bottles and can be found at any natural health foods store. Just use the dropper to add a few drops to your water, juice, or tea.
Here are some remedies that could significantly help you if you’re feeling stressed from classes, work, relationships, or even grief:
Try this remedy for feelings of hopelessness and despair. Feeling hopeless is a common feeling after graduation, especially if finding a job has become your full-time job if you aren’t already offered one.
This remedy is a good one for those who struggle with depression. I don’t think there was ever a time in my college life where I didn’t know at least a few other students dealing with depression.
3. Star of Bethlehem
If you’re dealing with the loss of someone close to you, this one is a great choice. It also helps for dealing with traumatic events or crises.
If you’re someone who tends to blame themselves for everything, Pine is the remedy to consider. Being plagued by guilt or the mistakes of others adds a lot of unnecessary stress.
Whether you’re starting a new job, beginning a marriage, or transitioning into some other significant life event, Walnut can help you feel a little more relaxed about your choices if you tend to be easily influenced by the opinions of others.
