Fight Anxiety With Flowers It’s Beauty And Relaxation Powers!

Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), and their texture (touch).

Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus on our way of living.

Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs, and plants can play an essential role in taking the stress away from your life.

1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety

Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location, you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, but it’s also proven to promote a better night’s sleep

If you surround yourself with jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.

Sleep plays a vital role in our physical and mental well-being. If you lack sleep, you may have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems, and coping with change.

2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air

It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room, or bedroom to promote a calming ambiance and fight anxiety.

Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colorful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes but having brightly colored plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.

One Idea at a Time: Keeping Your Mind Sane In Times of Distress

anxiety heart health medical advice dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico california usa

I chose today to talk about “mental sanity” because lately, I have seen patients with many distress symptoms. They come to me complaining of headaches, left arm pain, extreme fatigue, hyperventilation, etc. After talking to them, exploring them, and auscultating them, their blood pressure is way high, and their EKG shows signs of severe anxiety.

So, be careful and control your stress and emotions because they could affect your heart. Remember: it is better to prevent than sorry,

Here is ONE IDEA AT A TIME: Get yourself a nice-calm hobby. Like gardening, carpentry, reading, painting, walking around your neighborhood, listening to music, or learning how to play an instrument (this one is so much fun). If you prefer an exciting hobby like speed cycling, consult your doctor before starting any exhausting exercising.

I hope I have helped you with this advice.

Forget about the frantic life and live day by day.

If you are affected by the insane excitement that work puts us through, slow down that frantic pace of life in the city and enjoy the relaxing-vibrant life in nature.

Mental Health: What You Say Matters

mental health motivation dra martha castro noriega tijuana

Usually, it’s said: “Pay attention to what people do, not to what they say”. Well, I am telling you, what people say, really matters. It can hurt others so much that they could wish to die, they could get very angry or even enraged and cause harm to others. Treating each other with kindness it seems forgotten in these times, or maybe it’s been like this always, for millennia; human condition? If someone is causing you to be angry and sad, getting away from that person might be the best solution, the healthier solution to take.

If someone is capable of hurting your kindest feelings and thoughts, that someone might not be the best person to be in your life. With time you will realize that you made the right decision by getting away from a harmful and maybe narcissistic persona.
