If you walk around with your shoulders in your ears, your physical stress is chronic. It is a physical reaction of stress to feel the stiffness in your neck and the tight shoulders. Massage feels good but as soon as you let your mind start thinking those stressful thoughts, the discomfort returns with a vengeance. One of the herbs that helps to keep your emotions in tact and loosens up the shoulders is L-Theanine. It is best taken over the day to prevent the problems in the first place but two capsules can make a significant difference within 20 minutes and if it is a truly bad day, every four hours is probably a requirement.
Most people get used to the way their body feels and think that stress is a normal part of everyday life. What they really are experiencing is chronic adrenal fatigue. Using supplements to help repair and pamper your adrenals and using heat and relaxation techniques is a must before your body gets sick and knocks you down to get the rest you need. Even children can use the chewable formula to help keep them under control. And yes, children do stress out because they are not capable of doing some of the physical and mental things the older children or adults can do. They also pick up on the stress their household is under. If there is a significant amount of arguments around their space, they take it in like a sponge. Sometimes the hyperactive behavior is best dealt with by calming the parent which kinesthetically calms the child. Just like in the airplane if the oxygen mask were to be of need. Take care of your mask first, then attend to those around you. Things that make you say hmm!
