Information on mental irritability

Mental irritability is very simply, feeling irritable. The most common cause for this in today's society is stress. Some things that can help relieve the symptoms are:

  1. Getting away from whatever is stressing you out. Sometimes though, this is not possible as most of us have to work, etc.
  2. A drink of chamomile tea before bedtime.
  3. Getting plenty of rest. If you have trouble sleeping, then try taking a natural sleep aid like valerian. It comes in capsules and does not leave you groggy in the morning nor does it have any bad side effects.
  4. Get a hobby or join the gym. Doing something you enjoy and exercise are key factors in releasing endorphins that make you feel good about your self and the world around you.
  5. Take a meditation class or a yoga class. These two practices are very good for taking away stress and finding a sense of inner calm and mental peace.
  6. Take an herbal supplement of Hawthorn. This herb is mainly used for blood pressure and heart disorders, but it promotes a sense of well being as well. It does not have any side effects if you do not have a blood pressure or heart disorder.
