Home > Health Library > Ways To Reduce Stress
In addition to meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and breathing exercises, you might try these other ways to relieve stress.
Some people use herbal supplements such as valerian, kava, gingko, St. John's Wort, and chamomile to relieve stress symptoms such as anxiety and insomnia. But supplements like these can be sold with limited or no research on how well they work. Talk with your doctor if you are taking supplements, especially if you have another health condition.
Health Tools help you make wise health decisions or take action to improve your health.
