Aisha Chottani and Faheem Kaji were management consultants. They spent hours at length in meetings, matching deadlines and going through endless conversations. This took a toll on them. They were no strangers to meditation and often practiced the same. But their long hours did not allow them to stop and meditate to regain their calm and composure.They were aware of the stress relieving benefits of botanicals and adaptogens. Adaptogens, find similarities with meditation which stimulate alpha brainwaves which change your mindset and make it refreshed. This in turn reduces stress and increases mental clarity.
