Author: Linda Sinden Date Posted:10 August 2021
Do you worry or feel anxious, withdrawn or get angry in “meltdown”? This week we focus on 3 tips to help reduce or eliminate the need for meltdown. Read on!
Tip 1 - Meltdown indicates you are feeling under resourced
When feeling under-resourced Vata or Vata Pitta types will worry or feel anxious; Pitta types will get angry and Kapha types may feel overwhelmed, low in mood, unsupported and withdrawn. What is your go to when feeling under-resourced?
- Tip: Notice when you start to feel worried or anxious, angry, overwhelmed, low in mood, unsupported or withdrawn.Then stop, and ask yourself: What can I do right now to restore mental and emotional balance?
Tip 2 - When under-resourced Maharishi Ayurveda provides targeted herbs to help resource and balance you! They can make a real difference and often quite quickly.
- Vata types: Worry Free
Worry Free helps to calm the nervous system and give you the mental resources to sail through situations that could cause a meltdown. It contain Jatamansi (Muskroot), Greater Galangal (Aloe weed) and Ashwagandha.
- Pitta types: Pitta Rasayana
The herbal I find most helpful for soothing the intense fire of pitta which heats the blood giving rise to bouts of intensity, frustration and anger is MA3323 Pitta Rasayana - Ash Gourd Amla Paste. Helping to calm the mind and emotions, Pitta Rasayan naturally helps provide perspective and enhances compassion and contentment.
- Kapha types: Blissful Joy
Blissful Joy contains Arjuna Myrobalans traditionally used to help strengthen Sadhaka Pitta, which is responsible for balanced emotions, self-confidence, healthy desires, motivation and a feeling of fulfillment. Ashwagandha and Holy Basil assist the body's natural resistance to stressful situations and improve emotional stability.
Tip 3 - The epidemic of stress is now a serious concern for most people, families and workplaces.
Stress reduction or building stress resilience is no longer a good choice, it is a necessary choice.
- The best way I know to bring the pressure down and to maintain my resilience is to close my eyes, go within to a quiet, calm place where my body and mind gets a reset. 20 minutes later after my TMpractise I go about my dear revived, relaxed and happy.
