Ways to Naturally Reduce Stress

Stress is a common problem with most people. With all the problems of life such as work, personal problems, health issues and other responsibilities it is easy to get overwhelmed. Below is a list of natural ways to reduce stress and help you live calmer life.

1- Prioritize

As humans, we tend to take on more than we can handle. It is important to prioritize your life so you do not get overwhelmed. Life can require a lot from you but you do not have to run yourself ragged trying to complete everything at once.

Make a list of all the things that are required of you and number them according to importance. Then determine how much time to a lot to each task. Are there things on your list that you could eliminate? Are you spreading yourself too thin? Carefully review the items on your list and eliminate anything that is not necessary or beneficial.

2- Delegate

Once you have written your list of tasks, review it to see if there is anything you can delegate to someone else. Are there some tasks you could ask for help with?  For example, could you ask a family member to help you fold laundry? Could you ask for help on an assignment at work?  Delegating tasks is a great way to prevent being overwhelmed.

3- Use Essential Oils

Using essential oils can help you feel less stressed and have been utilized to help naturally induce a calmer atmosphere. Suggested practices for natural stress relief is to diffuse or topically apply essential oils such as lavender, rose or jasmine.

4- Breathing Exercises

Breathing is something that we all do, but how many of us are truly aware of how we are breathing. A helpful tip for reducing stress is to practice breathing exercises. There are many free youtube videos and internet resources you can watch to show you how to use breathing as a relaxation technique.

5- Spend Time with Loved Ones

A great way to reduce stress is to surround yourself with people you can enjoy life with.Spend time with people who encourage you, listen to you and make you laugh can help you heal when you feel like you’re at wit’s end. Call a friend, send a text or email.There is no shame in reaching out if you need a good friend’s company!

Get a Better Beard!

 

 

 

 

A masculine looking beard is a staple of manly appearance, but did you know that improper beard care can actually be a health hazard?

The Switzerland’s Hirslanden Clinic under the direction of Professor Andreas Gutzeit discovered that, “The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur.”  This study suggested that animal fur was actually cleaner than the average man’s beard.

Germs and bacteria can breed infection and disease so taking care of your beard is important.

White Naturals is proud to have a premium line of beard care products to help you have the best beard possible.

Tips for Better Sleep

Tips for Better Sleep

 

Sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes it can be hard to fall asleep and get the recommended eight hours of rest.  Below is a list of great tips to help you get better sleep.

Set a Sleep Schedule-

Our bodies get used to routines and setting a sleep schedule will help stimulate our body’s natural circadian rhythm to function properly. Setting a set bed time where you lay down at the same time every night will help you create healthy sleep patterns.

Avoid Electronics an Hour before Bed-

How many nights do we stay up way too late because we were scrolling through social media on our phones? A helpful tip to get more rest is to plug your phone up on the other side of the room before bed and leave it there until morning. This will limit the temptation to spend unnecessary time on social media and promote relaxation.

Dim the Lights in the Evening-

Our bodies naturally respond to light stimulation, so by dimming the lights a few hours before bed you send a signal to your brain that sleep is coming. This teaches your body to wind down and can help you fall asleep easier.  Natural light sources such as Himalayan salt lamps can provide a natural glow that will not keep you awake.  Using these in the evenings instead of traditional incandescent bulbs promotes wellness.

Drink an Herbal Tea-

There are many natural teas that can assist you in relaxing before bedtime. Teas such as chamomile and lavender mixed with honey have been used for centuries to promote calmness after a rough day.  Drinking a warm tea before bed is a great way to help you relax.

(Disclaimer- Do not start any herbal remedy without first speaking to your doctor. This is not a suggestion for medical care.)

Take a Warm Bath-

Heat is a natural muscle relaxant. Taking a warm bath before bed can help ease you into a more relaxed state. You can also add comforting elements such as bath soaks, essential oils or epsom salt into your bath water for extra pampering.

Listen to Calming Music-

Enjoying instrumental piano music or listening to your favorite band before bed can help you de-stress and fall asleep faster. A good practice is to listen to calming music for at least 15 minutes as you lay down for bed. This can help you unwind and fall asleep easier. There are also audio options created for inducing sleep such as guided imagery, biblical meditation or binaural beats.  

Create a Comforting Sleep Space-

Trying to fall asleep in a messy, chaotic space can inhibit your ability to rest. A helpful sleeping tip is to create a calming space that will allow you to drift into sleep easily.  You can do this by organizing your bedroom, having a comfortable mattress and pillow and also making sure your room is a nice, cool temperature.

 

At White Naturals, we are dedicated to making sure our clients can live their best life possible. We hope these tips help you find better, more restful sleep!

Reasons You Should Exfoliate Your Skin

Reasons to Exfoliate your Skin!

You don’t have to spend thousands on expensive skin care products or cosmetic procedures to get more youthful skin.  You can easily exfoliate your way to better looking skin! Below is a list of a few of the amazing benefits you can get from adding exfoliation to your beauty routine!

 

Look Younger!

 

When you exfoliate regularly, this helps to stimulate collagen, which is the main structural protein found in your skin.  Collagen helps to improve the skin’s texture and tightness. So, when you promote your skin’s collagen production by exfoliating, your skin can have a more youthful appearance.

Have a Healthier Lymphatic System!

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that transport a clear fluid called lymph.  It is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system. Exfoliating stimulates lymphatic drainage and promotes blood flow, which can help the body release built up lymph fluid. This helps the body remove toxins and promotes healthy blood flow.

Prevent Acne!

Acne breakouts are one of the last things anyone wants to deal with. It is not just a problem for teenagers, adults can get breakouts too.  A gentle exfoliant used daily can help cleanse your pores and prevent breakouts, no matter what your age is.

Improve Skin’s Moisture!

Dry skin can appear flakey and make you look older. Exfoliating can get rid of dead skin cells and allow healthier skin cells to replace them. Gently exfoliating your skin then applying a moisturizing, natural cream can renew even the driest of skin!

 

White Naturals is proud to offer a line of premium, natural exfoliating products such as our pink salt scrub, charcoal detox scrub and our 24K gold scrub!
