Today, let's dive into the realm of magnesium—a vital element that can significantly impact your overall health, especially during exam season.
As we navigate through the pressures of exams, it's crucial to prioritise self-care. In a previous discussion, we explored the benefits of deep belly breathing. Now, let's shine a light on the important role magnesium plays in promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
Magnesium is a powerhouse, contributing to over 300 different enzyme functions within the body. Its role in stress reduction is particularly significant, making it an essential component of overall wellbeing.
So, how can you harness the stress-busting benefits of magnesium?
Magnesium Baths for Tranquility 🛀
If you're fortunate enough to have a bathtub at home, consider incorporating magnesium into your bathing ritual. Simply add a couple of cups of magnesium flakes or Epsom salts to your bathwater. As you soak, the magnesium will be absorbed through your skin, working its magic to alleviate stress. For those without a bathtub, fear not—soaking your feet in a magnesium-infused foot bath for at least 30 minutes can provide similar benefits.
Aromatherapy Bliss with Lavender Oil 🌺
Enhance your magnesium-infused bath by adding a few drops of lavender oil. Lavender is renowned for its calming properties, and by breathing in the soothing aroma, you can further reduce stress levels. This aromatic experience is not only delightful and like your own spa experience at home, but it’s also a fantastic way to unwind before bedtime. Whether you choose to indulge in this ritual at night to help with sleep, or kickstart your morning with a calming magnesium-infused bath to calm any anxiety you may be feeling, this will be sure to make you feel more relaxed, calmer & more clear-headed.
Internal Magnesium for Deeper Support 💊
In addition to external applications, internal magnesium supplementation can be a game-changer. Consult with a Naturopath to determine the most suitable form and dosage for your unique needs.
