On top of being a worry-wort, I also have pretty extreme social anxiety. It makes it very hard to meet and connect with new people. This is hard on me, especially considering I work from home, homeschool the kids, and I don't really know many people here in the NE Ohio area. I'm not the outgoing type that can just walk up to a random person and start talking. Shoot, I can't even call and order a pizza, because talking to people I don't know causes me great anxiety. It's silly and I know it, but it's just reality for me.
My anxiety also rears its ugly head even when dealing with people I know. I have a really difficult time picking up the phone and calling anyone, because I'm constantly worried about bothering anyone, or interrupting something important. That's likely the worrier in me coming out.
I'm just keeping it real, folks. I'm not perfect. I have issues. My anxiety and everything surrounding it is probably my biggest downfall, as it literally affects every single aspect of my life. Today, for example, I had a complete and total breakdown. I was ugly-crying, with tears falling all over and snot dripping out of my nose. Granted, I had a good reason. Someone I love very much hurt me in the worst way imaginable. But still, I can't help but think my anxiety somehow even played into that.
Don't get me wrong. I am not judging anyone who relies on prescribed medications to cope with their mental issues. For some people, it's the right answer. I just don't feel that I fall into that camp.
I tend to rely on natural remedies when stress and anxiety prove to be too much to handle. One of my favorite ways to relieve my stress? AnxioCalm from EuroPharma.
Here's more info about AnxioCalm and its benefits:
Anxiety affects everything we do. It makes us feel overwhelmed, destroys our ability to rest and sleep, harms our immunity, and stops us from experiencing joy. Unfortunately, prescription drugs for anxiety reduction often cause serious side effects. But there’s a better solution.
We all know that echinacea is good for colds, but there’s a unique species Echinacea angustifolia that can greatly reduce anxiety. This specialized, clinically-tested echinacea calms the jitters and fears that take a toll on your mental and physical health. It also matches the symptom relief of a prescription, but without side effects.
With this unique echinacea extract, you will:
- Reduce—or eliminate—anxiety
- Stop persistent worrying
- Eliminate unrealistic fears
- Reduce physical symptoms associated with stress
- Sleep better at night
- Feel more comfortable in social situations
- Meet challenges and daily obstacles with confidence
I have to admit, I was skeptical about how well this would work. I've taken a lot of different anxiety supplements, and while I have had pretty varied results, there's only been one thing that has ever truly helped in a remarkable way. Sadly, this natural remedy is not legal where I live, so I have been searching for other alternatives.
I have also noticed that I am sleeping more soundly. I don't toss and turn as much, and I wake up feeling rested and alert. Stress and anxiety are definitely easier to cope with after a good night's sleep!
But the thing I like the most about AnxioCalm is the fact that it has no weird side effects. I still feel like ME. I'm not experiencing a "foggy version" of reality, and I am still feeling all of my emotions. They're just easier to keep in check.
If you're looking for a safe, natural way to cope with feelings of stress and anxiety, definitely give AnxioCalm a try. I think you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was!
