Why Is It Important To Relax? 

We've established that the Sweet Oasis blend is great for helping you relax, and we know that relaxation is good, but what exactly are the benefits of regular relaxation? According to doctors and health science, relaxation can do many things to support a healthy mind and body, including: 

  • Decreasing your heart rate (which is typically elevated when you are stressed or anxious) 
  • Lowering your blood pressure and increasing blood flow throughout the body 
  • Decreasing feelings of anxiety, depression, and insomnia 
  • Relaxing your muscles and reducing tension
  • Boosting your energy and promoting better sleep patterns 
  • Providing a sense of calmness and confidence
  • Improving your coping abilities 
  • Reducing feelings of frustration or anger
  • Increasing your concentration 
  • Reducing feelings of fatigue or tiredness 

Relaxation is a state of being where you feel calm and able to manage your daily life or tasks. It does not necessarily mean not doing anything, as you may still have a racing and anxious mind while lying on the couch. By combining various relaxation techniques with natural products, such as the Sweet Oasis blend, you can more fully experience true relaxation and its benefits. 

Relaxation Techniques 

Okay, so we know that relaxation is good for us, but when we are in the middle of a stressful situation, sometimes it can be difficult to find something that actually helps us relax. Here are some basic and simple ways to help ease your mind, slow your breathing, and recenter your emotions: 

  • Breathing: Conscious and controlled breathing can help lower your heart rate, increase your oxygen intake, and relieve anxiety. Simply close your eyes and breathe in for a few counts, and out for a few counts. Repeat until you feel calm. 
  • Meditation: There are many different ways you can meditate. Try repeating positive and calming mantras to yourself, use proper posture, practice controlled breathing, and focus on positive thoughts. 
  • Yoga: Yoga combines proper breathing and posture with greater self-awareness. Even just 10 minutes of yoga can help relax your mind and increase your energy. 
  • Visualization: This technique involves you mentally envisioning a relaxing setting. By focusing on the details of the setting and how you feel if you were there, you can help remove stressful thoughts, and focus on simply calming your mind and body. 
  • Essential Oils: Naturally health-promoting products such as essential oils can help enhance the effects of relaxation, especially when combined with other relaxation techniques.
