Raise your hand if you’ve felt colossal stress this past year. What if we remedy it? We propose you a few ways to spoil yourself between trips without asking you to visit a therapeutic island. The goal is to recharge your internal batteries.

Our battery indicator has remained in a worrying red color for a few months now. We have lost or gained too much weight. We have become irritable. It’s become harder to fall asleep but that’s enough!

We need to recover energy, so our next tips will help you find ways to regain pleasure and health with priority to feel good before your next trip.

  1. Spend time in a much more than a hotel

Hydrotherapy equipment, a physiotherapist two hundred meters from the room, yoga sessions at sunset, breakfasts with fresh fruit and happy chicken eggs, the sound of birds flying over a fig tree when waking up, a treadmill with an antigravity air chamber for get rid of the weight of our joints are some of the amenities offered at these hotels even in some cities.

Think about the services and amenities that best match your plan to rest and choose an accommodation that suits your needs such as hotels, apartments, rural houses and historic buildings. The tricky thing is having to choose just one.

  1. Vitamin D and lots of sunlight

It is activated when the skin comes into contact with ultraviolet rays and is a great ally of our immune system. A minimum of fifteen minutes a day of sunlight is recommended. It is the dose that the cells of our body need to perform their functions, including lymphocytes, the army that is responsible for protecting our body from possible infections.

Like everything, success lies in balance so remember to apply sunscreen fifteen minutes before lying in the sun, to enjoy that delicious and beneficial tickle all over your body.

  1. Anti-stress treatments

Travelers have been choosing destinations for three centuries to restore their mental and physical health. To give yourself a truce. To take care of yourself and practice responsible hedonism. In order to achieve this between trips and truly spoil yourself what a lot of people do is seek the professional services of beauty salons such as MV Beauty Art where you can truly treat yourself, your skin and your well-being.

  1. Relaxation

Drive without traffic jams, escape from the screaming and find delicious spaces where there are no crowds or queues. Terraces at the foot of the sea where we can drink a beer and take a bath are part of the dreamy relaxation. Strolling around. Silence the clock. Boycott the tyranny of the smartphone. Here you command.

  1. Thalassotherapy, aloe vera, sports

Many companies choose as a destination a place where to organize an anti-stress cure for their employees. There are many evils derived from the current rhythm of life and a place by the sea acts as a medium to recovering. Here are some plans to relax near the sea:

– Float in the sea, rub your feet against the sand, let yourself be enveloped by the iodized breeze.
– Try a moisturizer made from aloe vera.
– Taste the restaurants that practice gastronomy based on local, fresh, seasonal products.
– Rediscover the sounds of nature. Goodbye, city noises. Hello, seagulls, waves, fruit trees swaying in the wind.
– Make a hydrothermal circuit.
– Walk leisurely along a path.
– Discovering that sport clears the mind and releases tension.
– Find yourself again. Listen to yourself.

Safe, Natural Remedies For Common Ailments

When we get sick, our first instinct is to go to the doctor for advice. We trust that they have the skills and medications to correct whatever is wrong with us. 

Unfortunately, though, that’s not always the case. Many people wind up going to a local defective drugs and devices attorney because their physician prescribes them medication that actually harms their bodies. 

So what’s the solution? For many, it’s choosing safe, natural remedies instead. It turns out that there are already proven compounds out there in nature that can address the symptoms and causes of most diseases. What’s more, because they’re mostly just regular foods and herbs, they’re almost always safe (so long as you consume them in small quantities). 

Let’s take a look at some natural remedies for common health issues. 

Lavender For Anxiety

If you have anxiety, physicians will usually prescribe you drugs that change your brain’s chemistry. These can work in the short-term, but they’re a quick fix and don’t actually deal with the underlying issue. What’s more, some of them are unsafe or even addictive, making it possible to develop dependencies. 

Fortunately, lavender is not like this. This purple flower is natural and emits a scent which helps to calm the mind considerably. People who take lavender regularly report feeling happier and healthier as a result. Just pop some drops of essential oil in your diffuser or bring freshly cut lavender into your home. 

Ginger For Nausea

Do you ever feel a little nauseous? If so, you might want to try ginger. 

Ginger is a bit of a superstar in the wellness field. Research suggests that it can do everything from protect our DNA to reduce migraines. It also contains compounds that help to soothe the receptors in the gut that cause nausea. 

If ginger doesn’t work, you can also try peppermint. Again, this herb helps to settle the stomach and improve the muscle tone of the bowel walls. 

Apple Cider Vinegar For Acid Reflux

Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid leaks out of the top of the stomach and begins to damage the surrounding esophagus. Long-term, it can lead to some nasty conditions, including Barrett’s disease and cancer.

Acid reflux is mostly the result of poor diet. If you eat too much sugar, meat and fat, and not enough fiber, your stomach acids will bubble over, causing you pain. 

To deal with this, you can use apple cider vinegar. It stimulates the digestive juices, preparing them for the food that you are about to eat. By itself, it doesn’t taste good, but it is extremely effective. 

Prunes For Constipation

Prunes contain a special type of fiber called metamucil. When eaten as part of a whole prune, this fiber bulks up in the gut, providing it with a greater surface area on which to push. This, in turns, makes it easier to move stools out of the colon, helping you go to the bathroom. 

Just sprinkle six to ten dried prunes on your breakfast in the morning and then wait for the magic to happen.
