Calming Crystals For Stress And Anxiety
Whether you’re struggling with daily responsibilities and expectations, dealing with a difficult situation or going through major life changes, it can be really challenging to stay calm and keep stress and anxiety at bay. Nowadays, anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health concerns in the world. An increasing number of people are opting for natural and holistic remedies and therapies to help them address the underlying cause of their anxiety. This is where turning to soothing crystals can bring you much needed support. Crystals vibrate at their own healing frequencies that contribute to bringing your mind, body and spirit into balance.
Meditate with your crystal or just sit with it and relax for as long as you need. You can place it under your pillow at night or keep it on your night stand. And why not carry it in your pocket or wear it as jewellery so its gentle vibes envelop you all throughout the day.
Here are a few of my personal favourite stones to help relieve anxiety and stress, and restore your sense of calm.
