Daily meditation has helped me tremendously. I find that if I make it a regular part of my schedule I'm no longer grinding my teeth and I feel rested when I wake. If you are like me and don't know how to start there are some great apps for smartphones that guide beginners through meditation.
Do meditation for 20 minutes daily.Take deep breath when you feel stressed.It will help you to get good sleep and feel better.

I have a number of remedies for Anxiety and/or Stress, starting with my top recomendation and on.
1. Hypnosis/self hypnosis - this has been show to be the most benificial alternative remedy that doesn't involve medication, herbs, supplements ect. You can even hypnotize yourself and there are many programs out there on the internet for that.
2. Blue Vervain - a natural herb that is usually found as a tincture, has no adverse reactions known and promotes relaxation, due to the fact that it is a natural muscle relaxer. It only lasts a couple of hours and needs to be taken several times throughout the day, however. Some may not like the taste of it either, but is better when mixed with tea.
3. Kavaa - a natural muscle relaxer, the strongest I know out there and can be found in a variety of means (ie tea or pills, etc). However, it can cause insomnia and should only be taken in the morning. It can also cause memory lapses and decreased concentration or focus. It should not be taken every day, and only in intervals with at least a week off every month. The positive benifit is that it puts you in a very relaxed state, can take away muscle spasms, twitches, rashes and other stress related problems. I suggest Yogi Kavaa Stress Relief Tea with Kavaa.
Other Herbs for Anxiety/Stress:
Eat some peanuts infront of the mirror and smile. It works almost 80% of the time. Peanut has anti-stress factors.
Chamomile is known as nature’s safest and most effective sedatives. Chamomile has been proven to show good results in the combating of various illnesses and diseases as well as effectively helping to combat stress and depression by relaxing the muscles in the brain, chamomile can be used to defeat insomnia by relaxing the muscles and acting as a mild sedative. The muscle relaxing attributes also help to combat many other problems, including menstrual cramps. The essential oils that chamomile contains also help to heal skin irritations such as bites, stings and even burns and can help in the fight against acne.
Great stressbusters for me are:
-scented candles & my fave music (alone in the bedroom..some 'me' time)
-buying myself something pretty
-getting my hair or nails done
-writing in a journal (yes..i'm 28 and i still keep one)
