Building a relaxed and stable emotional baseline is important for effectively managing and responding to life’s changes and challenges with ease. Cultivating a sense of inner peace and well-being is foundational while experiencing and recovering from stress so we can be more resilient, and have more joy in life. Mindfulness, diet, and supplements can work together to keep us steady.

Here are some key steps to building an emotional baseline:

  • Practice self-acceptance: Embrace your emotions, both positive and negative, without judgment. Recognize that emotions are temporary and don’t define you.
  • Develop resilience: Learn to bounce back from setbacks and challenges. Practice self-compassion and forgiveness.
  • Engage in self-care: Prioritize your physical and mental well-being by getting enough sleep, eating healthy food, exercising regularly, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation.

It seems to regulate serotonin levels in the brain, while providing protection for the brain and working as an anti-inflammatory. It has been studied for its gentle effectiveness in chronic pain, depression, eye support, hormone balance and weight loss.

  • Reduces stress and anxiety Saffron has been shown to reduce levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and promote relaxation.
