Creative Ways to Recharge Your Energy,
Relieve Stress & Restore Calm
Staying home day after day, coping with your family’s demands, working from home without stepping out, or being alone with only video calls for human interaction - the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns, and perhaps, losing loved ones has been tough on all of us. It’s easy to feel tired, stressed, and overwhelmed. Should you check the internet, you’ll find tons of pages offering different ways to let go of the stress, recharge your physical and mental energy, and restore calm. If you’re tired of reading about how to deep breath, exercise, read and listen to music, try these creative ideas instead.
Open Your Mind to the Healing Energy of the Universe
When you’re worried and anxious about scary situations, turn to the hidden forces of the universe for answers. Oracle and Tarot cards can provide responses to your questions about critical life-changing decisions you need to make. Or, allay your fears about an uncertain future. Oracle and Tarot cards are entirely distinct but can be used as complementary divination tools.
At the start of the session, you’ll draw an Oracle card to understand the underlying feeling of the situation. Next, you’ll draw Tarot cards for more in-depth advice and directions on what to do next. At the end of the session, a second Oracle card provides closure and rounds off the reading.
Rejuvenate with Aromatherapy
The sense of smell has a potent connection to your mind and psyche. Breathing in floral and citrus scents can calm your anxiety and restore feelings of calm and well-being. Combine with the healing properties of hemp oil, and you’ll have a compelling blend of ingredients that transform your mood. Now add the final touch - relaxing in a quiet room for 15 minutes with your eyes closed, doing absolutely nothing.
This three-dimensional approach has the power to soothe stress with an added benefit - pampering and nourishing your skin. Try a face mask with CBD oil for one of the most unusual and creative ways to recharge and relieve stress. And look great at the end of the session. It’s a win-win all the way.
Indulge and Feel Special
When you’re trying to cram hundreds of tasks into a single day, it’s hard to find the time to take care of your needs. Make it a point to do something special now and then, just for you - with none of the guilt. Spritz a little of your favorite perfume and walk around on air. Or, order that special book. Just, because! Or, dress up for dinner tonight, change out of the sweatpants, and put on some makeup and heels. Celebrate life with a nice dinner at home. Better yet? Make a friend feel special. Send them flowers or candy without waiting for a birthday or anniversary.
Laugh Your Anxiety Away
Whoever came up with the adage “laughter is the best medicine”knew what they were talking about. Add smiles and laughter in your life and lift up your mood instantly. Start the day with a happy Good Morning to your partner and read a cartoon strip or a joke before getting out of bed. Call up a close friend and share a funny story. You could also look for humorous videos on YouTube or sign up for a podcast by a well-known artist. Catching clips of stand-up funny comedians is also a great way to lighten up your day. Best of all? Spend time playing with a child or pet.
Recharging your energy, relaxing stress, and restoring calm can be done by adopting these creative techniques. You’ll soon feel your cares melting aware while building closer connections with loved ones.
