3 Ways to Really Relax

186

Being busy is a good thing: it means we are occupied and productive. However, being too busy can be a bad thing. All that productiveness can soon disappear because we start to get stressed and burnt out, potentially becoming very unwell both physically and mentally. Depression, anxiety, heart problems, type II diabetes, weight loss or weight gain, heart problems, ulcers, and much more can all be associated with working too hard and not taking enough time to relax. 

For some, relaxation is difficult to achieve. When there is so much going on it can be hard to truly switch the mind off, and you might even feel guilty for not being at work or doing something other than sitting still. Yet once you do learn to relax, you’ll see just how much better your life can be. 

Use Essential Oils 

Many people find it hard to get started when it comes to relaxation. They know they can do all kinds of things such as read a book, have a warm bath, take up a hobby, or even simply sit and mediate. Yet making a start seems impossible. 

This is where essential oils and natural oils can come in handy. Using oils including rose, peppermint, lavender, chamomile, and CBD oils from theviolettacompany.com can all help to create an atmosphere of relaxation which will allow you to enjoy the experience of doing something other than work. In other words, it will help to set the scene. 

You can use essential oils in many ways including:

  • In a tea
  • As a pill in supplement form
  • In a warm bath
  • On your pillow
  • In a diffuser 
  • As a candle 
  • During a massage 

No matter what choice you make as to the type of oil and how you use it, you will find that relaxation is much easier. 

Exercise 

Surely exercise means moving about a lot and not sitting still and relaxing? It’s true that the best exercise is going to involve increasing your heart rate and moving about, but it’s also true that this can — for some — be relaxing. This is because although your body is moving around, your mind is taking a break from all the stress that you are normally dealing with. 

If you’re having a hard day, taking some time out to go to an exercise class, to go out and cycle, to go for a run or even a brisk walk around the block, will help you. Your mind can re-set, and by the time you are done, you might even have come up with a solution to help you be less stressed in general. 

You will also feel good after exercise. When the heart rate is increased, your body releases endorphins. These chemicals are natural mood enhancers, making you feel happy and even more at peace. 

Breathing Exercises 

If you don’t have a lot of spare time and can’t spend too much time getting relaxed because of all the things you have to do, you can try breathing exercises

When you are feeling stressed and are not relaxed, you will find that your breathing becomes a lot faster. Rapid breathing means you won’t be bringing in as much oxygen as you need, and you will often find your mind is foggy and that productivity is lower. Plus, you’ll feel uncomfortable and stressed. 

Spend just 10 minutes slowing your breathing and carrying out specially designed breathing exercises, and you will be amazed at the difference it makes.

Of course, these are good ways to relax. But I would like to add CBD oil to this list. Take a look at the site https://blessedcbd.co.uk and you will be able to learn about high-quality CBD oil that helps to completely relax the nervous system and relieve stress.
