6 Supplements to Support Your Mood While Working from Home


Companies all over the world switched to a remote-working environment a couple of years ago due to the pandemic (can you believe it’s been that long?), and for many workers, the adjustment took some getting used to. Parents were balancing work and remote learning for their kids, and young professionals were scrambling to find desks, monitors, and home office supplies. In the midst of it all, we came together, adapted, and reoriented ourselves into this new working world. Although we all settled into working from home as best as we could, that didn’t mean there weren’t challenges that came with it.

Whether you’re still working remotely or slowly familiarizing yourself with heading back into work every day, we could all benefit from something that promotes a normal stress and mood response as we take on our various everyday challenges. These 6 supplements from Himalaya can work together to help you face whatever your work or home environment throws at you. They all have their different advantages and leverage time-honored adaptogenic herbs to help bring you back to balance, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.


The Benefits of Organic Ashwagandha

It’s no surprise that many of us are looking for ways to manage our stress and mood, especially after the many transitions we’ve made over the course of the last couple of years.

For those who are looking to get a little more grounded, a little more mindful, and just want to feel a little less stressed overall, Ashwagandha is a time-honored adaptogenic herb that could help. Used in many of Himalaya’s supplements and stress and mood products, Ashwagandha has been used for centuries for stress and energy. You might be asking yourself, how can it calm me down and hype me up? Well, if you don’t know about adaptogens, you’re in for a treat!

Adaptogens have been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and have many health benefits, some of the most important including their ability to help the body adjust to physical, chemical, and biological stress while improving your mood in the process. They are history’s balancing herbs, and Ashwagandha is the most famous! They help your body’s ability to respond to areas that are out of balance.

For example, if you’re feeling exhausted, they will help support your energy levels. Conversely, if you need to wind down and de-stress, they can help your body support your nervous system. Ashwagandha is the main ingredient in many of our herbal supplements because of its adaptogenic abilities. It keeps you going on busy days and can help you relax.

Organic Ashwagandha is a clinically-studied extract that provides stress relief by supporting your adrenals and balancing cortisol, which helps to sustain your daily energy levels without needing caffeine. Avoid those afternoon jitters!


Get Up & GO 

Start looking forward to your alarm and give yourself the time you need to get your day going and the lasting energy to finish it. Clinically studied to restore energy levels, improve mood, and support normal cortisol and DHEA levels (which are both leading indicators of adrenal health), Hello® Energy was designed with you in mind.

Adaptogenic herbs like Ashwagandha, Amla, Haritaki, and Licorice combine in this powerful herbal supplement to help you greet the day with strength. When we can adapt to stress, we feel better about what’s causing it, regardless of what it is. Improving our health and well-being always starts from within. Cortisol (the hormone your adrenal gland releases) energizes you in the face of emergencies (critical and not-so critical), but too much of it is often bad for our bodies and causes an imbalance which can lead to weight gain, lower moods, and less energy. When we work from home, it can be easy to get overwhelmed by our to-do lists, both at work and around the house. Instead of crashing or getting exhausted by it, try Hello® Energy to help you tackle it.


Peace Out (With Intention)

Stress is often the culprit of other health issues and many of us don’t realize it. Stress caused at work, home, in school, with the kids, running errands (especially if there are car issues), and just simply “keeping up” are things that we can all agree contribute to our mental state. Consistent stress can lead to soreness, digestive issues, occasional sleeplessness, and so much more. Stress often cascades and it can begin to affect our internal clocks, immune systems, hormones, and cognitive functioning systems. No one wants or deserves to live with discomfort and imbalance, but we’re often too stressed to do anything about it! Say Hello to some Peace.

Hello® Peace from Himalaya leverages herbs like Ashwagandha, Turmeric, Saffron, and Chyavanprash to help you calm the frazzle and mental fry while helping you to take on your daily tasks with positivity and confidence. It can easily be incorporated into your daily routine morning, noon, or night. Because it contains adaptogenic herbs, getting back to zen won’t slow you down, but rather, it’ll give your body just what it needs to balance out and calm down.


Don’t Worry, Be Happy

If only it were that easy, right? Well, it can be! The most beautiful thing about life is that it will always bring unexpected surprises. Wouldn’t it be great if we could plan for it? While we’ll never truly know what tomorrow will bring, we can count on ourselves to find joy in it. There are many different ways to cope with stress, pressure, and sprinting through a busy day, but with adaptogens, we can run the marathon, not a daily race.

Hello® Joy has been clinically studied to support mood, support motivation, and put that pep back in your step even if the sun isn’t necessarily shining. The adaptogenic herbs in Hello® Joy— Ashwagandha, Amla, Bacopa, and Holy Basil—help cheer you up when you need it the most. They enhance your ability to come into balance in those moments where you must face the unexpected. When we’re not feeling our happiest, being balanced is key. Life is all about peaks and valleys, but when we’re feeling low, it’s easy to get sucked into cycles and it can be even harder to get out of them. Open the windows, take a deep breath of fresh air, and invite a little more joy into your day.


It’s Time to Relax (For Real)

Hello® Calm Mind from Himalaya has been clinically studied to help you relax while enhancing focus and concentration. When we’re spinning a million different plates at work and trying to ignore whatever distractions may be creeping up on us at home or in the office (especially if that office is at home), Hello® Calm Mind helps to bring you back to balance get back to the task at hand.
