Eliminate stress and fear to give yourself a fighting chance at a more fulfilling life.
Jim Carrey once said, " ...Depression is your body saying f*ck you, I don’t want to be this character anymore, I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world. It’s too much for me...", or something along those lines. In my opinion, most of us are anxious and/or depressed and not enough of us are admitting it. There is currently not enough attention being given to the growing number of people who are experiencing depression and anxiety due to current global events or just due to extra bullsh*t being piled on to everyone's personal lives. This social distancing and face masking dancery is messing with our innate needs as social creatures. It has taken away the crutches we've had as humans to find joy and some type of happiness amidst the oppression. The Earth is saying enough is enough, I want to heal. We now have no choice but to look at the mess we've been a part of creating, as a collective and individually, accept it, offer it compassion, and heal it. Ultimately, our Creator has the final say and has provided us with remedy: It's time to heal.
For those of us who are reluctant to take pharmaceutical drugs for this mental health crisis, I've compiled a list of herbs that help with mild depression and anxiety. Nothing against pharmaceuticals because they are needed at times. However, they act more as bandaids and due to the additives/ side effects, I decided to look for balancing, natural and earth cultivated medicines that get to the root of the issue. Always CONSULT with your healthcare provider. PSA: Before you put anything in your mouth or give to someone else, do your research. Ask questions and stay skeptical. Thank you for reading this!
