Are you Wired and Tired? Learn How To Get Rest and Relaxation Quickly

blog post draft (2) 7-6

There are some fun and sensible ways to rest and recoup when you are feeling overtired and wired.

It is possible to be as wired as you are tired. If you feel like you are barely staying above water, or that you’re feeling more and more high-strung lately, it’s time to learn how to get rest and relaxation. Staying stressed and exhausted is like stretching a rubber band—it might be able to stretch pretty far, but at some point, it will snap if it isn’t given a reprieve. Give yourself a reprieve by following these tips:

  1. Aromatherapy – The sense of smell is very closely linked to both memory and emotion in the brain. Certain smells can trigger the brain to slow down and relax. If you are running a million miles a minute and are finding it difficult to just take some time to relax, you can definitely benefit from aromatherapy. What scents work best will vary from person to person, but the scent of chamomile, lavender, or vanilla are often used to induce a feeling of relaxation and contentment. An easy way to start with aromatherapy is to find a candle or diffuser in a scent that calms your mind, and to burn it while reading, taking a bath, or meditating.
  1. Backyard Camping – Why not have a little get away in your very own backyard? You don’t have to pack up everything you own, but you can still enjoy the outdoors and sleep under the stars. Camping has always been a great way to commune with nature and to remind ourselves of the simple pleasures, but if there are no good camping spots where you live, you don’t have to go without this relaxing and rejuvenating pursuit. Pitch a tent in your backyard, have a fire, roast marshmallows, and get to know the sights and sounds of your own neighborhood.
  1. Gardening – Growing something is one of the most satisfying hobbies that you can develop, and one of the easiest, even if you only have a small window ledge to fill with plants. There is something uniquely calming about taking care of a plant, weeding it, getting your hands dirty, watering something, and watching it grow. If you are looking for a hobby that is as relaxing as it is energizing, starting a garden should be at the top of your list.

Follow these tips and you’ll be rested and relaxed in no time!
