We have all had days when we wake up and it feels like Monday morning, regardless of the day of the week. We just cannot seem to face the idea of the tasks ahead of us and, consequently, little or nothing is accomplished. Fortunately, Dr. Edward Bach included an antidote for this emotionally tired state in his 38 flower remedy healing system.

The flower essence of Hornbeam may be used for both chronic and acute cases of procrastination that stem from a weary state of mind, rather than from physical tiredness. Bach created this remedy “for those who believe that some part of mind or body needs to be strengthened before they can easily fulfill their work.” The key word here is “believe.”

Like the other remedies in the Bach system, Hornbeam adjusts your perspective, and this can make all the difference. A two-drop dose of Hornbeam provides a much-needed boost to prompt the most determined procrastinator to move forward.

Once the initial move is made, momentum begins and the task at hand seems less daunting. Let us say you need to get ready for work, but the dread of your daily routine makes it tough to get out of bed. Including Hornbeam in your morning ritual could have you singing in the shower and starting your day with a can- do attitude.

In fact, Hornbeam has been likened to a cool, revitalizing shower and is preferable to the false boost one can get from caffeine. It is also quite helpful when someone is recuperating from an illness and needs a tonic to restore the mental energy required to expedite the healing process.

In the same way, Hornbeam can be very useful when encouraging an uncooperative youngster to tackle a homework assignment or complete household chores.

This remedy has proven to work on lethargic animals as well. Although it can be challenging to determine the correct remedy for animals, Hornbeam would be the one to try when a dog shows an uncharacteristic lack of enthusiasm for his daily walk. The same would be indicated for a mother cat that seems too weary to care for her recently birthed litter.

It may be a stretch to consider, but plants sometimes need an energetic nudge and including Hornbeam in their water could provide that. Both indoor and outdoor gardeners can revitalize limp or weary looking plants or encourage seeds and bulbs to sprout and flower.

For any living thing that is or appears to be tired at the very thought of doing something, Hornbeam can restore inner vitality and a renewed sense of purpose.
