We all know that stress is bad for us – but finding time to switch off and relax is not always easy. Research has shown that around half of us feel stressed every few days – with some feeling it every day.
Luckily, our summer holidays are just around the corner, promising long, lazy days enjoying the warmer weather. But sometimes, all the preparation of going on holiday (making sure that work will survive without you, packing everything you’ll need and dealing with travel logistics) can just add to our already-elevated stress levels.
“More intensely stressful situations can lead us to feel anxious or irritable,” explains medical herbalist Katie Pande. “This makes it difficult for us to switch off or sleep well and causes us to crave sugary foods.” While we all love to indulge in a gelato on holiday, we don’t need these kinds of feelings hanging over our trip.
Pukka’s 7-day Relax kit is the perfect way to keep calm and prep with ease for your holiday; or to pack as a travel wellness essential to help ease feelings of stress before you settle in. It contains natural botanical ingredients such as ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb that has a calming effect on the nervous system, and soothing oat flower, chamomile and fennel, which are shown to relieve stress-related digestive issues.
Enjoy a relaxing cup of tea before tackling your packing and pre-holiday to-do lists – then give yourself a well-deserved break that you can enjoy every moment of.
