Six ways to say so long to stress
From time to time everyone will feel stressed, so it is important to have coping mechanisms in place to ensure you don't feel down for long.
Here are six ways to say so long to stress.
To combat stress, the most important thing is to reverse the body's response to situations and breathing exercises are key to this. Take between five and ten deep breaths with your eyes closed. Breathe through the ribcage and exhale through the mouth. By the end of these exercises, you are bound to feel more relaxed.
One of the main causes of stress is not getting enough sleep, so if you find yourself experiencing anxiety on a regular basis you may be sleep deprived.
Set a regular bed time and try to get seven hours rest each night. After a couple of weeks your body will be in a routine and you should notice the benefits for your mood.
Physical activity is a brilliant way to combat stress, especially cardio exercise. Not only does this allow you to channel frustration and tire your body out so you can sleep easier, exercise releases endorphins, which boost mood. What's more, you are effectively replacing your negative thoughts with positive ones about how the activity is making you healthier.
This super drink contains L-theanine, which promotes relaxation and works to counteract the stimulating affects of caffeine. Therefore, instead of hyping the body up, which increases stress levels, it has a calming effect. Try drinking green tea in the morning and evening to frame your day with relaxation.
When we're stressed we carry a lot of it in our muscles, causing discomfort and augmenting feelings of anxiety. Massage can relieve this by releasing tension from the body.
Andrea Preston, massage expert and founder of The Treatment Room, explained: "All massage treatments are beneficial for those in high-stress jobs, particularly in the current climate, where the pressure is on more than ever.
"Taking one hour out for yourself, once a month, to invest in your own health and wellbeing, is highly recommended."
Containing lots of potassium, bananas are a great boost if you're feeling stressed or tired. Taking time out to enjoy this snack can also help you calm down.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
