Three great instant fatigue fighters
The start of September spells back to work, back to school and back to that same old routine. After weeks of sunning yourself in the garden, diving back into the routine of work, school pick-ups, cooking, cleaning and everything else we’re expected to do can often lead to a lack of energy that even a good night’s sleep can’t shake off. But before you reach for that cup of coffee, try these natural fatigue fighters, perfect for women who just don’t have the time to wait for an energy boost.
Nobody expects you to whip out your yoga mat and spend hours perfecting your inner zen, but there are many on-the-go yoga positions that can give you that instant energy boost a busy woman needs. A particularly effective and speedy stance is the ‘spinal flex’. Here, you sit with legs crossed, whilst holding onto your calves or shins. Breathe in deeply and lift your chest forward and up. Continue breathing in and out as you move your chin to your chest. Continue this for three minutes, increasing the speed. This movement releases blocked energy in the spine and gives you an instantaneous ‘oomph’.
Eating a high-fibre breakfast sets you up for the rest of the day, as these slow-burning nutrients keep you full and ensure your body ticks over fatigue free. However, if you forgot to have a wholesome breakfast, it’s not too late to get an instant energy lift. Instead of reaching for chocolate or sweets, try a cereal bar instead, a banana or some nuts. Sugary foods do perk you up, but the lift is temporary and you’ll end up crashing on your computer 20 minutes later. A high-fibre treat picks you up and keeps you going.
Lack of energy can easily be cured by caffeine-free supplements. Packed with vitamins, Energiplex combats sleepiness with a mighty concoction of iron, zinc, and all the vitamins under the sun. This natural remedy kick-starts your body into action, as well as doing wonders for the rest of your body. Attentive and attractive, Energiplex is the perfect option for health-conscious individuals with a busy and active lifestyle.

- 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
