No time to relax?
Sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is just lie down and relax.
But if you stop now, you won’t find the energy to get up again, right? Residual fatigue may well be a symptom of the sneaky catnap, car snooze or veg out.
That’s why it may surprise you to know that using the right methods of relaxation and meditation can replenish your energy rather than zap it.
Bite size meditation
You don’t have to reach Nirvana to benefit from the ancient practice of meditation. Regular light sessions can also be highly beneficial to your wellbeing.
Even if it just for two minutes a day, clearing your mind of current thoughts and worries can be hugely beneficial to your physical health and self-perception.
Ongoing meditation has been proven to decrease brain cell volume in the Amygdala – the area responsible for producing anxiety, fear and stress.
- Step 1: Find a convenient and quiet spot such as your bedroom, your office, a park bench or even the car.
- Step 2: Breathe naturally and easily and feel each inhalation and exhalation.
- Step 3: Do your best to clear your mind and think of nothing. If you find thoughts and worries easily creeping back in, don’t beat yourself up. Effective meditation does take some practice.
Scent is a powerful mood changer and not to be underestimated in terms of its ability to refresh and relax the senses.
While some scent dispensers can knock you over with fragrance, a high quality diffuser filled with natural essential oils will lightly permeate the air.
The right scent can calm the atmosphere as well as lift the spirits. This can be especially wonderful in winter, when our natural lack of vitamin D can leave us feeling lethargic.
The endota spa Essential Oil Diffuser has been designed to gently diffuse beautiful scents into your space. For restorative relaxation, we recommend our endota spa essence of energy with peppermint, lemon peel and orange.
