Learning to put yourself first
Posted on May 18 2020
With the latest technology at our fingertips and an endless stream of social media apps it has never been easier to connect with others. However, in this world that is focused around building and maintaining connections with others it is all too easy to forget about number one and not put aside time for yourself. Especially when this “me time” is essential for boosting wellbeing.
Why should you take time out for yourself?
Terrifyingly, if you are not putting aside regular time for yourself you are putting your mental and physical health at risk. A lack of down time in your lifestyle can lead to mental fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and depression while also putting you at higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and even premature death.
Whereas, the benefits of establishing time for yourself both mentally and physically are immense.
Studies have shown that taking time for yourself will refresh and re-energize your body. This private time also boosts mental strength: not only will it eradicate stress and increase happiness levels; it also wards off depression.
How can you take care of yourself?
As you can see, more “me time” really does make you a better person inside and out!
But what should this “me time” entail? Your first prerogative should be taking care of yourself. Whether that be through reading your favourite book by candle light or indulging in your bath time routine – Pharaoh’s products will ensure the experience is luxurious.
Pharaoh products put your wellbeing first and foremost
Pharaoh products are all naturally sourced: they do not contain any harsh chemicals, sulphates or parabens but instead are made up essential oils.
More and more studies are showing how chemicals, sulphates and parabens will strip your body of its natural oils and also, terrifyingly, can increase your risk to diseases like cancer. Unfortunately, many manufacturers still choose to use these substances, for the simple reason that it costs less money as preservatives allow the products to stay fresher for longer. But by doing so they are risking the health of their clientele. By using Pharaoh products, you can rest assure that the products you are using in your “me time” do not contain any harmful substances.
Instead, their products are made up of all-natural essential oils that are extracted from the most aromatic part of plants. As well as smelling delicious, by using these products you will experience a whole range of benefits.
First and foremost, essential oils offer medicinal advantages. Known for their use in aromatherapy, inhaling the aromas from the essential oils can stimulate your limbic system which in turn can improve your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. Many essential oils can also work as antiseptics, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics and antivirals and have been known to work wonders as remedies for acne, muscle soreness and sore throats. For example, just ten drops of peppermint essential oil can ease muscle soreness, a drop of tea tree oil on a spot will cause it to shrivel in a matter of hours while a spray of rose water can instantly relieve inflamed skin
But the benefits of essential oils do not stop at relieving physical ailments – they are just as effective mentally. Studies have shown that the mere smell of essential oils can reduce anxiety and stress levels. The scents of lavender, chamomile and neroli have all caused reductions in anxiety and insomnia while applying peppermint and lavender oil to the temple has been shown to reduce headache pain.
