Home Remedies for Emotional changes (anxiety, depression)

Chamomile Tea

Brew and steep a chamomile tea bag in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Chamomile contains antioxidants that may promote sleep and reduce anxiety.

Lavender Essential Oil

Add 2-3 drops in a diffuser or sprinkle a few drops on your pillow. Lavender is believed to promote relaxation and better sleep.

Warm Baths

Fill a tub with warm water. Add Epsom salts or a few drops of essential oil (like lavender) for added relaxation. Warm baths can soothe muscle tension.

Journaling

Write about daily experiences, feelings, or thoughts. Journaling allows for emotional release and self-reflection.

Sunlight

Aim for at least 20-30 minutes of direct sunlight exposure daily. Sunlight helps increase serotonin levels in the brain.

Herbal Teas

Consider teas like Lemon balm, passionflower, or peppermint. These teas have calming and mood-enhancing properties.

Deep Breathing Exercises

Inhale deeply through the nose for a count of 4, hold for 4, exhale through the mouth for a count of 4. This activates the parasympathetic nervous system.

Physical Activity

Engage in activities like walking, jogging, or yoga for at least 30 minutes daily. Exercise releases endorphins, neurotransmitters that produce feelings of well-being.

Meditation

Start with just 5 minutes daily, focusing on your breath. Meditation reduces stress and promotes emotional health.

Listening to Music

Choose calming tunes or personal favorites. Music has the potential to elevate mood and reduce anxiety.

Gardening

Engage in simple gardening tasks. The therapeutic act of gardening allows for a connection to nature.

Crafting/Art

Engage in activities like drawing, painting, or knitting. Art offers a means of expression and distraction from negative feelings.

Reading

Dive into uplifting literature or fiction. Reading offers escapism and triggers the imagination.

Grounding Techniques

Use the 5-4-3-2-1 method: Identify 5 things you can see, 4 you can touch, 3 you can hear, 2 you can smell, and 1 you can taste. This diverts attention from anxiety.

Positive Affirmations

Repeating positive and uplifting statements to oneself can shift negative thought patterns.

Aromatherapy

Use scents like rose, bergamot, or sandalwood. These can be diffused or inhaled directly to promote a sense of well-being.

Social Connection

Talk to a loved one or friend, even if it's just a brief chat. Social connections can be a powerful way to combat feelings of isolation.

Sleep

Ensure you're getting a proper night's sleep. Establishing a routine and ensuring 7-9 hours of sleep can significantly impact emotional well-being.

Limit Caffeine and Sugar

Reduce intake, as both can cause mood swings or increase anxiety in some people. Switch to herbal teas or water and eat more whole foods.
