It is a truth universally acknowledged that most moms are ready to strangle someone by eight in the morning, dads on the verge of losing their composure, people going to work in a sleepy haze and sour mood. And this is only the beginning of a day that is yet to get unbearably cramped and busy on any given day of the year.
We are hopelessly entangled in an endless loop of a fast-moving life. Besides, trading our peace of mind for unattainable luxury and comfort. While an idol’s mind is a devil’s playground, an overactive one is a cause of stress and exhaustion. You are possibly hitting all your goals but is your hectic schedule bringing you any happiness? Are you content with your lifestyle?

Ancient Chinese Medicine is not a deal of the past. It remains a popular treatment method for detox and body purification. Chinese medication is a culmination of natural herbs, massages, and therapies for healing and wellness.
If you are on a journey to self-healing, we suggest you look into a few of these popular remedies to heal your worries away.
- Acupuncturing- aka micro-needling. It involves inserting tiny needles on the superficial layer of skin and muscles at various acupuncture points on the body. The idea is to stimulate the central nervous system into releasing chemicals. These biochemicals then stimulate the body’s natural healing ability.
- Cupping Therapy- We talked about this one above. The glass bulbs are warmed to remove oxygen and then placed on the skin to create a vacuum, which raises the skin in tiny bumps. A sharp jade stone comes in handy for scraping the treatment area, allowing the toxic blood to flow out.
- Consume Traditional Herbs
Earth carries minerals and energy to calm your nerves. Herbs come from the same ground and plants and have a plethora of nutrients to erase mineral deficiencies. Herbs are the stem, leaves, root, or seeds. They are dried and consumed either directly or as power. You can ingest them for inward purification and can even apply them as a slave to heal injuries. The popular ayurvedic herbs include ginseng, cinnamon, turmeric, licorice, and rhubarb.
The practice of meditation is a thousand years old. But how does aimlessly sitting in the quiet be beneficial when you can wrap up a million other things during that time? Meditation is effective in reducing stress, anxiety and improving focus. It aims to quieten your thoughts and get rid of all negative energies. The single-minded focus on natural surrounding calms down the blood pressure and lower stress levels. Boosts serotonin production to uplift your mood and mental wellness.
