Win a Rescue Remedy hamper worth £60 + How to stop feeling fearful

How to stop feeling fearful + win a Rescue Remedy hamper worth £60

Right now plenty of young people will be feeling fearful about the future. They may be anxious about starting university, nervous about their career or worried about not making new friends.

I know I experienced all three of the above when I packed up my things and headed off to the South West of England to start my new life as a university student many moons ago but things didn’t exactly go to plan when I dropped out after just one month (see below).

Back then university ‘care packages’ weren’t a thing but I think they’re a brilliant idea, especially if they’re filled with items to help get you through testing moments. For this very reason, I’m thrilled to team up with Rescue Remedy to give you the chance to win a hamper of goodies worth £60.

Designed to provide support in times of emotional demand, the original Rescue Remedy is a blend of five different flower essences discovered by Dr Bach in the 1930s. The products can be used to help keep you calm or stay focused during stressful situations such as a move to unfamiliar surroundings.

The good news is this competition isn’t only open to students. Anyone – including empty nesters or those going through stressful times – can enter the draw!

Win a Rescue Remedy Hamper worth £60

One lucky winner will receive the following:

  • RESCUE® Pastilles (Orange & Elderflower and Blackcurrant) worth £6.45
  • RESCUE PLUS® Lozenges worth £3.99
  • RESCUE REMEDY® 10ml dropper worth £8.49
  • RESCUE REMEDY® 20ml dropper worth £10.99
  • RESCUE REMEDY® 7ml spray worth £7.99
  • RESCUE REMEDY® 20ml spray worth £11.49
  • RESCUE® Night 20ml spray worth £10.99

To enter simply tell us what is stressing you out at the moment and why the prize will help. For a second entry simply like and share our Facebook post.

The winner’s name will be drawn out of a hat at 8pm (GMT) on September 16 2018.

Good luck!

Terms and conditions apply. The competition is only open to UK residents.

Life after dropping out of university

I always knew I wanted to become a journalist – a job I’ve been fortunate to do for the past 18 years. Only, my careers adviser had other ideas.

“Everyone wants to be a reporter,” he insisted. “The industry is too hard. You’re better off doing a media studies degree, not journalism. It’ll give you more choice.”

Being young and impressionable I accepted his advice but by week three of university I felt awkward, alone and on a course that held little appeal. Deep down I knew I’d made the wrong decision.

Weeping and trembling with fear, I called my dear mother from the phone box  – we didn’t have mobiles back then – and apologised for letting her down. I felt like a worthless ‘drop out’ but my mum was brilliant and not upset in the slightest.  The weight on my shoulders instantly lifted.

In the months that followed I contacted numerous consumer magazines and newspapers for work experience but they knocked me back time and time again. The reason? Oversubscription.

I pasted every single rejection letter into a scrapbook.

Was I disheartened?


Was that careers adviser right?


The competition was fierce but deep down I knew I wanted to be a reporter. I didn’t give up.

I then contacted my local newspaper. The editor called me in for a ‘work experience’ before eventually offering me a part-time job. My life changed in an instant.

During that gap year, I cut my teeth on local news stories. I then secured a place on an accredited journalism degree course at a different university and the rest, as they say, is history.

Even so, I’ll never forget the fear that consumed me when I made that initial call home. Or how I beat myself up for thinking I was a complete and utter failure. I felt lost. I had no idea how my life would pan out. And I even remember standing in the street looking at an elderly couple thinking: “I wish I was their age and retired.”

Yes… I was THAT concerned.

So how do you stop feeling fearful about the future?

The  lessons I’ve since learned are:

1. Take one day at a time and avoid thinking too far ahead or worrying about a situation that might not unfold *This is far easier said than done*
2. Talk to someone if you’re feeling uncertain, low or unhappy. It’s cliche but a problem shared is a problem halved.  Check out the websites of Mind and Young Minds which are filled with lots of helpful advice.
3. Always listen to your gut instinct and have confidence in it. It is, in my experience, always right.
4. Follow your dreams and never give up. You can DO it.  *It took me three attempts to pass my driving test!*

    Next week is the anniversary of my daughters sudden death, the stress and tension always rises leading up to that dreadful day my whole world fell apart and does so every year. It has only been 5 years now since she died but I dread the anniversary every year and stress takes it’s toll on my health,my well being ,& sleep. I practise mindfulness to regain focus but sometimes even that is not enough during tough times.

    I’m trying to lose weight….you wouldn’t think that this would be a stressor maybe but I am always thinking about food and what I can’t have and even when I am trying realllllllllly hard, I’m not losing much if anything, so it’s really hard to keep motivated. I’m also an emotional eater so when there are other stressful things like being short-staffed at work, having horrible neighbours, and facing family issues, I struggle even more. I’m hoping that the rescue remedy would help keep me on track and refocus me. What a fabulous idea.

    I’ve been feeling especially stressed this year over a combination of a ‘0’ birthday and family members being diagnosed with various illnesses. Rescue remedy helped when I was in college and taking driving exams and first job interviews. To be honest I’d forgotten about it so thank you for reminding me! I’d definitely give it another go to see if it helps me feel a bit more grounded and less worried about the future.

    In July I had a crucial knee operation which was more severe than expected and in October my surgeon wants to do the other knee with the same technic, steel rods and stainless steel knee cap, I’m sure the results will be wonderful but the healing period is quite difficult as after the first operation I felt really ill for around 2 weeks, so part of me is dreading more surgery, I’m sure Rescue remedies would help me though.

    I have various stomach/ovary symptoms going on at the moment and I’m not sure what’s causing them. I’m a worrier at heart when it comes to my health so I’m always fearing the worst. It is constantly on my mind and beginning to rule my life. On top of that, I am also planning our wedding which is next year, and we all know that is a super stressful time!. I’m also in the process of planning a holiday to Thailand in November, so doing lots of research and itinerary planning for that. I also have a job interview coming up this Wednesday which I need to revise for, so I’m beginning to get stressed about that too! I think the prize will help because I’m quite an anxious person anyway, and I worry about silly things. I have recently undertook an 8 week mindfulness course so I can teach my clients it (my job requires me to teach CBT etc), so I’ve been doing this on myself too, so with the aid of this prize, hopefully I can calm myself without causing myself more health symptoms, as I am fully aware that anxiety can manifest in several ways! It’s scary how powerful the brain is, but it’s about getting those thoughts under control.

Nevertheless, to answer the question, I suffer with chronic pain (EDS) and am trying to run my own business as my illness doesn’t allow me a regular job. I stress and am really frustrated that I am not able to get enough hours worked to step up my business due to my illness and paying the bills is a bit of a struggle. My best friend always swears by Rescue Remedy, but I’ve never tried it.

    I’m stressed over money – what else?! Have had two unexpected big bills lately, one for a new car battery, and now the lock on my front door has decided to stop playing nice. I have to spend about a minute jiggling and turning the key very carefully to get in my house. So a locksmith will have to be called – and they aren’t cheap. Also, it’s the time of year my car insurance needs renewing so I’m anxious about having to go online to the various comparison sites and try to find the best deal! Why can’t life ever just run smoothly and be problem-free?

    It sounds so trivial compared to some of these stories. But I have moved home 3 times in 2yrs and will move again in 6 months; hopefully for the last time. Each move has resulted in sleepless nights, ,my blood pressure rises and I become short tempered and irritable. Stress and anxiety are such a bad thing and contributes to so many, illnesses; even death.

    Lots of things are stressing me out at the moment to be honest. But one of the things is my health, it is stressing me out because of the chronic fatigue and pain my illness causes, and I am starting university on Monday to study midwifery! I am looking forward to it but would love some help with the anxiety I feel regarding my health!

    I get phobic and anxiety about lots of things. When I was younger it was about natural disasters that I couldn’t control. Then as I learned to drive I developed an awful phoba of driving. I had many panic attacks and meltdowns. I used to chew the rescue remedy pastilles to calm me a bit. But breathing was how I copied eventually and quiet music on in the background. I became so anxious about crashing I avoided the car for 7 years. Until the last 2 years when I got back in it again and have slowly managed to beat it! But I still have the odd moment when I feel uncomfortable. I’m currently going through a career stress, I’ve just turned 27 and have no clue what to do with my life. I definitely have moments at work at the moment when I get very stressed out from the weight on my shoulders, would be really useful to have some rescue when I’m on break or having a general moment in life.

    Well my daughter has finally left her husband , So her & our 5 yr old granddaughter have had to live with us for the time being. What we thought would be short term seems to be getting longer…A 5 yr old can be so stressful for all the obvious reasons but, going from a quiet laid back home seems to have turned into stress city.
