5 Easy Ways To Freshen Up Your Day*

5 Easy Ways To Freshen Up Your Day*

Heat can be tiring; it can make you disoriented, sleepy, concentrating on something might seem impossible…But let me tell you there is hope to get back your energy! Follow my 5 tips and I guarantee you will feel better immediately; here is the answer to how to have more energy during the day:


1, Quick Shower


Have a short shower with a fresh, tingly shower gel (my favourite is Bodhi & Birch’s Mint Thé, because it has an amazing scent, leaves my skin silky smooth and it’s natural) use lukewarm water and eventually make it as cool as you can tolerate. The minty scent has an immediate refreshing effect, and the low temperature water speeds up your blood circulation.

3, Wet Towel


When there’s no A/C and the heat is unbearable, a wet towel can be your savior. Dampen a towel with cold water, and put it on the back of your neck-shoulder area for a short period of time, then wrap it around your wrist then ankles. As the blood in your veins passes next to the cool towel, it cools down making your whole system feel a bit better, and definitely more fresh.


4, Hot Mint Tea


Tea has wonderful effect on our bodies, especially herbal teas, such as mint. Hot mint tea is one of the most popular drinks in the Middle-East (I’ve had plenty while living in Dubai), they love it for it’s refreshing taste and it’s cooling effect. Yes, you’ve read it right; the hot tea has a proven cooling effect due to the raised body temperature and the increased sweating it causes. Read more about it here!

Aromatherapy invigorates body & soul.

What scents should you look for?; eucalyptus for cooling, lemon for all round energizing, peppermint for improved concentration.
