It’s widely recognised that wedding planning is a joyful, exciting and stressful time and wedding stress is probably going to affect you! There’s a huge amount of pressure for everything to be ‘perfect’ and for those suffering with anxiety, that pressure is felt even more intensely – above and beyond the usual stresses. As well as worrying about the ‘perfect day’, anxiety sufferers may find themselves over-worrying and over-analysing.
Am I the only bride-to-be that feels like this?
I can’t tell anybody – what if they think I have cold feet?
It’s supposed to be the happiest time of my life – why do I feel so over whelmed?
If you’re experiencing feelings of anxiety, there are things you can try to bring down your wedding stress worry levels:
Make a list and stick to it, even if it feels daunting. Avoiding your to-do list can increase anxiety levels later on when you’re under time pressures
Accept – and ask – for help from family, friends and bridesmaids. A supportive voice and extra pair of hands can help to calm those excessive worries
Choose the type of wedding you are comfortable with and don’t feel pressured to meet others expectations.
Keep it simple, and try not to over-complicate your day. The smallest details can become triggers to obsess over, e.g. rather than fancy hand-made invites, why not opt for ready printed invitations?
Try a traditional herbal remedy for the relief of symptoms of mild anxiety
For the first time in the UK, there is now a new option to relieve the symptoms of mild anxiety with uniquely prepared, pharmaceutical quality lavender oil – in a one-a-day capsule.
The results of over 15 clinical trials have shown that a daily capsule of the uniquely prepared lavender oil can relieve the symptoms of anxiety, with benefits notable in just one to two weeks[i], and the benefits are comparable to commonly used anti-anxiety medications[. One study found that symptoms in 70% of those taking the lavender oil capsules were rated as ‘much’ or ‘very much’ improved when reassessed by researchers at the end of treatment.
The anxiety relieving effects of this uniquely prepared, pharmaceutical quality lavender oil are now available for the first time in the UK, only in new Kalms Lavender One-A-Day Capsules.
Kalms Lavender One-A-Day Capsules is a traditional herbal medicinal product used for the temporary relief of the symptoms of mild anxiety such as stress and nervousness, exclusively based on long standing use as a traditional herbal remedy. Always read the label.
