We are exposed to a large amount of stress nowadays. Stress doesn’t have to be caused only by negative, tragic or traumatic events. It can be also triggered by your daily tight schedule.
In such circumstances, you’re likely to experience nervousness and anxiety, even if there is nothing that caused such state. Then you will certainly feel the urge to relax somehow.
In order for you to calm down, you may want to take sedatives.

This may be bad for your health and provoke even bigger stress.
If you want to avoid these unpleasant things, try some of the herbal teas which can help you with this problem.
