Natural remedies to calm the nerves
What is nervousness?
Definition of nervousness
Nervousness is a form of benign anxiety, which manifests itself by an “inner” state of excitement (emotional stress or irritability), and/or by an “outer” state of excitement (agitation and instability). . This reaction can often be exacerbated by daily stress and persistent feelings of anxiety.
Causes of nervousness
Nervousness can be triggered by various factors such as relational difficulties, a lack of time or rest, an overload of work, a temporary annoyance, an emotional shock, a lack of sleep or even an overconsumption of exciting substances. Managing the quantity and quality of these factors is crucial to maintaining emotional and physical balance.
A nervous breakdown can also be one of the symptoms of psychological disorders or a psychiatric illness such as depression, bipolar disorder or even schizophrenia, where stress and anxiety play a primordial role.

People suffering from nervous jitters may suffer from:
- memory and concentration problems

- sudden weight gain or loss
- sleep disorders (insomnia, sleep apnea, nocturnal awakenings, etc.)

Fortunately, there are natural remedies to calm the nerves naturally, and thus regain mental and physical well-being, as well as gentle serenity.
Natural remedies to calm the nerves
Consume foods rich in magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral essential for the proper functioning of the human body. By acting on the nervous system, it helps reduce stress, soothe nervous fatigue and find serenity. Magnesium also contributes to the activation of melatonin, the sleep-regulating hormone.
To guarantee a sufficient quantity of magnesium in your diet, it is therefore strongly recommended to consume naturally, on a daily basis, natural and organic foods rich in this mineral such as:
- Dark chocolate (organic and rich in magnesium)
- Brazil nut
- Whole grains
- Certain mineral waters that contain a good amount of magnesium
In addition to toning and refining the figure, sport is a real natural calming agent that helps relieve nervous tension and stress. By secreting hormones and neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, sport offers a feeling of well-being and thus promotes a state of relaxation and helps with relaxation.
Gentle physical activity of 30 minutes per day is therefore recommended to effectively combat nervousness, combat anxiety disorders and regain physical and mental well-being. This can be walking, cycling, swimming or yoga, which is known for its gentle practice and its ability to create serenity of mind.
Use essential oils
Essential oils are one of the natural remedies
the most effective for calming nervous breakdowns and relieving stress and its symptoms. In fact, certain essential oils have the effect of relieving any muscle pain or neuralgic pain.
To fully benefit from their benefits, these essential oils must preferably be organic and used in inhalation. Simply place two to four drops of oil in a diffuser, or, failing that, in a large bowl of boiling water. Inhaling the vapors will help soothe the nervous system and relieve anxiety.
