As we plan and prepare for the upcoming holiday season, many of us are left feeling impatient, cranky and stressed. Stress often leads to sleeplessness—when our heads hit the pillow, our minds continue to think about the next day’s to-do list, keeping us awake until the early hours of the morning. “Stress and sleep issues go hand-in-hand. Too much stress can make us anxious and tense, thus leading to sleep problems,” says Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(NA), an American homeopath, author and mother of three.
In this short video, Joette recommends five homeopathic single medicines, including Coffea cruda and Ignatia amara, to help you resolve both your stress and sleep issues. Unlike traditional over-the-counter sleep medications, these singles are non-habit forming and do not leave you feeling groggy, so you’re able to focus on your checklist during the day, while still getting a good night’s rest.
