5 Teas to Help Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Everyone has to deal with stress and anxiety to some extent now and then. While there are varying degrees that people can experience, depending on the individual and the specific underlying circumstances, there are a few main triggers that often lead to the typical levels of stress and anxiety that many people face.

A few of the top factors that can lead to stress and anxiety include financial problems, work dissatisfaction, poor health, and personal relationship issues. Additionally, any major life change – from happy events like a wedding or a promotion to devastating ones like a death in the family or loss of a job – can cause stress and anxiety.
