Top 5 Crystals for Reducing Stress

Crystals to Reduce Stress

Chronic stress can lead to a whole host of health problems, but unfortunately, in our hectic modern-day lives, stress can be hard to avoid.

Thankfully, there are measures we can take to try and minimise our stress levels, and daily meditation and exercise, coupled with eating a whole foods, plant-based diet, can certainly help.

If you’ve been attuned to Reiki, then performing self-healing Reiki sessions regularly can also be really beneficial (or visiting your local Reiki practitioner) and using natures tools (such as essential oils and crystals) can help to restore tranquillity and balance to your mind, body and soul.

I work with crystals daily, and I find that wearing them on my body (as jewellery) is a wonderful way to connect with their energies, particularly during times of stress. I also enjoy holding them in my dominant hand and meditating with them often – paying close attention to how they’re making me feel.

If you’re experiencing chronic stress (or are going through a difficult time) my heart really goes out to you, and I hope that the crystals I’ve listed below will be helpful in supporting you.

Amethyst

Amethyst – A beautifully protective stone, which is ideal for calming the nerves, soothing and balancing the emotions and helping to reduce anger. Amethyst may also be beneficial for those experiencing post-traumatic stress, and people who have difficulty coping with change.

Sodalite – A wonderful crystal for calming anxiety as well as over-sensitivity and fear. This crystal is perfect for those with a tendency to worry and helps to encourage a clear and rational mind.

Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz  – A gorgeous crystal with grounding properties, which transmutes negative energies. It can be used to help improve mood, promoting a calm and balanced mind. This crystal is also ideal for bringing your awareness back to the present moment.

Lepidolite – A truly beautiful, calming crystal for easing stress and insomnia. It helps to bring about a peaceful state of mind and can be helpful for anyone experiencing big life changes, or for those who have issues with trust.
