Let’s face it, as much as we want to be positive and cheery all the time, it’s difficult to maintain. As we’re only human, we too, will get tired and feel low once in a while. So what can we do to refresh ourselves and keep going? Well, here are a few things for you to do that can help with self-rejuvenation!
Did you know that breathing in different scents can help you with different conditions? Essential oils are all the rage now, and they’re pretty varied as well. Anything you can think of, it’s most likely there’s an essential oil for that. Tea tree for antibacterial purposes, lavender for relaxation and a good night’s rest, wild orange for refreshments and focus… plus it’s no harm that they smell really good too! You’ve just got to find your purpose and scent!
2) Meditation/Breathing Exercises
In fact, you can combine this one with aromatherapy! Simply diffuse your favourite scent, sit down at your favourite spot, and just breathe. You don’t even have to go into full-blown meditation – simple breathing exercises are known to have benefits as well. Your mind and body relaxes, and you learn to anchor yourself in the present moment, which is important! When this habit forms and you do it routinely, you’ll find yourself just having better energy!
Get up and get movin’! Many of us probably have a table-and-chair job, which requires long hours of sitting. That, my friends, is actually no good for you. So make it a point to get in some exercise – even light exercising such as brisk walking in the park and going swimming once a week is better than nothing. Once you get the hang of it, you can increase the frequency. And trust me, there’s nothing like early morning exercises to kickstart your day!
4) Sleep Well
Thanks to the era of technology, we also seem to be in the era of not sleeping well. There’s so much to do and explore on the internet, and not enough time, seemingly. Do yourself a favour and cut down on your screen time especially during the night before your bed time. A good night’s sleep is essential for your body to function optimally, and maybe you don’t feel it now, but lack of sleep can cause problems in the long run. Goodnight!
5) Eat & Drink What You Want
You don’t have to make tough choices all the time! When it comes to food and drink, you can choose what you want, as long as it’s in moderation. What’s your guilty pleasure? Chocolate? Cake? Perhaps some cool, refreshing de-alcoholised beer? Well, now you can pick up a Heineken® 0.0 to enjoy anytime, anywhere! A de-alcoholised beer that’s brewed with 100% natural ingredients and has only 53 calories per 250ml serving, Heineken® 0.0 is an excellent self-rejuvenation choice!
