Quick Foolproof Ayurvedic Ways To Bust Stress Like A Boss

Updated on January 31, 2018

In this hustle-bustle of fast-paced, dynamic world, even looking after oneself has all been devoted to spending a fortune on pretentious treatments, but little do people are aware of the superpowers of Ayurveda. Ayurveda, is in fact, the fastest way to bust stress in no time. So, the next time you think of misspending those hard-earned bucks in the lavish, luxurious spa, think for a moment of spending it wisely now. Here's a list of quick stress-buster straight from the cheatsheet of Ayurveda to help you relieve yourself from stress in no time.

1. Equip your stress-buster kit with these 5 essential oils.

Abhyanga, or oil massaging on your body is one of the most effective ways of bidding farewell to stress. Aromas, too, help in easing up the anxiety. Here are a few you can add to your stress-busting armor.

a) Lavender: This balancing, soothing and normalizing oil is excellent for calming down the irritable Pittas. And the scent of the lavender is just perfect.

b) Geranium: This oil provides a means to ground one's senses. It is balancing, calming and uplifting at the same time.

c) Neroli: It boosts the mind with confidence and strength.

d) Chamomile: Its superpower is to strengthen the immune system.

e) Ylang Ylang: This calming and soothing oil reduces stress and negativity.

I could have listed more oils, but to save you the time and effort, these are the most preferred ones. Ayurveda, moreover, suggests specific oils for specific doshas.

2. A few more herbal supplements to your stress-buster kit.

Oils are surely a great way to cure stress, but herbals are also usually considered climbing the charts for the same. Here are a few:

a) Kava Kava: This sedative gives an immense sense of well being, and the best thing about this sedative is, it doesn't affect your mental health.

b) Ginseng: It is one of the most strong herbals. It helps to bring immunity to stress. Also, it is strictly advisable to not mix it with anti-depressants.

c) Passionflower: Helps in curing insomnia when one is prone to stress and nervousness.

d) Skullcap: A calming herb that helps to cure Pitta disorders like anger, envy etc.

3. Avoid using energy-vampire stimulants.

Stimulants which are rich in caffeine and sugars such as coffee, energy drinks etc. contains energy sapping constituents which are quite obvious good for you, but for a short period of time. Replace these energy vampire beverages with herbal tea, ginger, cinnamon or tulsi for an instant amount of energy. These are guaranteed long-term energy providers which causes zero harm to your body.

4. Believe it or not, sounds can be used as stress busters.

Sounds have a knack for calming or disrupting the mental processes of a human mind. Listening to various binaural sounds or the sounds of nature have a profound impact of soothing the mind in a matter of minutes. Hence, some people listen to music while they work so as to keep themselves away from all the negative distractions.

Various types of binaural sounds are also available on the Internet which can be specifically used for meditative purposes. You just have to schedule a few minutes for meditative introspection and notice the miracles unfold.

5. Puncture the stress with acupuncture.

The popular old-school technique has unleashed various miraculous powers for almost every health issue on the planet. For busting stress, simply pinch the point between your thumb and your forefinger for two minutes, and then gradually release it. Notice the difference... and you're welcome.

Acupuncture is still used worldwide as a panacea to the health problems. But like Ayurveda, it is still underestimated. There needs to be a calling for promoting its superpowers.

Do you have your own way of busting stress quickly? Feel free to share with us.
