Why Do You Feel So Tired? 7 Things to Make You Feel More Relaxed

By Ana Clara Otoni

Exercise and MeditateEvery morning is the same thing: 5 more minutes. You don’t want to be late for work again, but you’ve been so tired. It could be stress, your job, your children, the food you eat, the lack of exercise, sleep or even a hormonal imbalance.

What is the best thing to do? Listen to your body.

Perhaps you have blood circulation problems.

Here’s a quick check-list to help you to identify signals from your body:  

  • Fatigue
  • Digestive issues
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Memory loss and difficulty concentrating
  • Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
  • Swelling in the feet, ankles, and legs
  • Joint and muscle cramping
  • Changes in skin color
  • Ulcers in the legs or feet
  • Varicose veins

Now, if you were able to mark at least one item of the list: congratulations! Most people don’t even notice how they feel.

Being connected with the body is very important.
How important? Let’s say: survival important.

Now that you know how you feel. How can you heal your body?
Well, first things first.

Did you know that almost 74% of all blood vessels in our body are micro-vessels? If stretched out in one continuous path, they would amass more than 74,000 miles.

Good blood circulation is the key for a healthy nervous system

Blood Flow

The circulation of our blood is the engine that keeps us going. The heart pumps blood through the main arteries, but it relies on the additional power of the autonomous pumping motion of the microvessels. It is these very small vessels that reach the most remote parts of our body.

How does your heart sound?

Without adequate oxygen and nutrients and the efficient removal of waste products, your cells cannot metabolize correctly, less energy is manufactured in cells and the intracellular space becomes acidic.


How to prevent and treat poor blood flow and fatigue?

Eat healthy foods

FoodFoods rich in vitamin E, B, and iron can improve your blood circulation. Examples: Germ oil and other nut oils are a good source of vitamin E.

While leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale are great sources of vitamin B.

Dark leafy greens and red meat in moderate quantity are a great source of iron. Prefer organic and fresh foods. Try to support local farmers by shopping on open farmers markets. When in Orange County, check the agenda of open farmers markets in your city. In Buena Park, the open farmers market happens on Saturdays.

Eating foods rich in vitamin E, B, and iron can improve your blood circulation. Prefer organic and fresh foods from local farmers.

Exercise and Meditate

StretchWhen you move your body, you help your blood flow and release fun chemicals like serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine.

That’s because when the body experiences stress, blood vessels constrict. Meditation is a good way to manage your stress. It can also improve your blood circulation. If you think it might be too hard, start with a baby step, by simply paying attention to your respiration. Breathing in and out. You can also try meditations app.

Exercise helps your blood flow and release good chemicals to your brain. Meditation has a similar effect, also helping to release stress. Combine both practices for a healthier life.

Chiropractic Care

Back MassageA recent study published by the Journal of Human Hypertension shows that chiropractic adjustments were better in lowering blood pressure than two medications combined. People with early-stage high blood pressure were specifically adjusted (first and second neck vertebra) and had significantly lowered their blood pressure, according to the study.

Chiropractic Care helps to keep the spine aligned, which protects the central nervous system. When the spinal column is in its proper alignment, the entire body is in balance.

Massage

MassageMassage helps not only with stress management, but it also helps improve circulation through the lymphatic and cardiovascular systems.

When your muscles are manipulated effectively by a professional, your body releases chemicals called endorphins that make you feel good. Have you tried to combine a massage with aromatherapy? Essential oils are made of concentrated plant extracts that can stimulate your sense of smell or have medicinal effects when absorbed.

Massage helps improve circulation and release good chemicals to your system. When combined with aromatherapy, a massage has a stronger effect on your overall wellness.

Bemer Therapy

BemerThis advanced technology works with bio-feedback that addresses all the individual needs of the body in a low frequency to ensure there are no side-effects. Bemer has documented it's effect as they impact: microcirculation, strengthening the immune system, stabilizing the oxidative balance, increasing ATP and a lot more.

Bemer Therapy was designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes.

Fluid intake

WaterBlood has a very high water content.

Keeping your body well-hydrated is an easy way to maintain or improve your circulation and immunity system.

Drinking water keeps your body well-hydrated and leads nutrients to your cells.

Stopping smoking

Smoke causes blood vessels to constrict, decreasing the amount of blood that is able to flow through those vessels. Getting rid of this habit will also enhance your palate and respiratory system.

Smoking is bad for your lungs and overall health. The nicotine raises your blood pressure and heart rate, narrows your arteries and hardens their walls, and makes your blood more likely to clot.

In a summary, here are the seven things you can do to feel more relaxed and avoid high-blood pressure circulation: eat healthy food, exercise and meditate, invest in chiropractic care, get a massage, incorporate Bemer Therapy to your routine, drink water, and stop smoking.
