If you prefer the more thoughtful approach, keep a tin of these mild-flavored pastilles in your bag, desk drawer or glove compartment. They’re infused with the time-tested, stress-relieving Bach Rescue Remedy, a combination of flower essences designed to calm physical stress and quiet panicky thoughts. So whenever you feel your fight-or-flight adrenaline response kick in, pop a pastille and take a few deep, calming breaths — that’s often enough to bring your calming, parasympathetic nervous system online, and for you to get your wits about you. About $7 at your natural grocery or pharmacy, available in black currant or orange elderflower flavor. Read more about flower essences and how they work at www.bachflower.com.
