We are finding ourselves in anxious times right now. Some of us are anxious for our own health, the health of our loved ones and the vulnerable community. Some of us are anxious about our supply chain and being prepared. Some of us are anxious about "what's next", the lack of control we have, and the day to day unknown.
There are a number of ways to help calm the anxiety and cope and they include eating properly, staying hydrated, getting exercise, getting outside, (while social distancing of course), keeping busy doing things you love at home, catching up with family and friends via phone or FaceTime, meditation, yoga, breathing exercises and so much more.
Another thing you can look into is how homeopathy can help quell anxious feelings. Here is a short list of remedies that you may find helpful.
Aconite is useful for acute situations where we're overtaken with sudden and intense fear, especially of death. You can have heart palpitations, shortness of breath, flushed face and trembling.
Arsenicum Album is good for anxiety that is centred around health and well being of yourself and others. This person is often restless, chilly and is thirsty but can only manage small sips of water. When anxious, the person needing Arsenicum can be critical, grumpy and controlling. An interesting symptom to note is that burning pains (in the stomach, chest etc), will be relieved by applying heat which is unusual.
Calcarea Carbonica works well for those that are anxious when dreading disaster. Those needing Calcarea Carbonica crave stability and protection and struggle when things don't go according to plan. They are neat out of concern for contagion and a need for order. Anxiety can make them angry, indifferent or can make them withdraw.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
