    OK we get it, “self-love” sounds cheesy. We’re not trying to be a self-help book, but self-love is actually super important. It’s not just for new-age hippies–it’s for everyone! In western culture, we’re taught to be very hard on ourselves. We strive for perfection, and when we fall short, it can be hard not to be super critical. But there’s bad news–perfectionism can literally hurt you. Perfectionists have higher rates of chronic pain and issues like fibromyalgia. Being self-critical is also strongly related to high levels of stress, which tends to lead to chronic illness. So here’s some herbs that will help you take care of your body and mind.

In Western medicine, we give names like “anxiety” and “insomnia” to problems related to racing thoughts and overthinking.
