With our fast-paced lives and innumerable commitments and responsibilities, it is perfectly normal to be tired or exhausted. Erratic schedules, high levels of stress and competitiveness can drain you out. However, if your weariness is spilling out on a daily basis and hampering your daily activities, you may want to do a self-check. There could be several reasons behind your fatigue, such as lack of sleep, weakened immune system, excessive alcohol intake, unhealthy diet, and emotional stress.
If you’re always feeling tired no matter how much you rest or sleep and everyday chores become a task for you, then you may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

Aromatherapy For Stamina & Energy
Aromatherapy is known to calm the mind and body. If you’re feeling a little bogged down, a sniff of certain smells can calm your body and mind and perk you up. Ayurveda says that inhaling certain smells can trigger and activate the hypothalamus—the area of the brain that relays messages to other parts of the body.
Chamomile, which is known for its mind-relaxing properties, helps activate the immune system, stimulate digestion and regulates the blood pressure. High in tyrosine, sesame oil increases the activity of serotonin in the brain, which is a mood booster and can bring about a positive change in your energy levels. Since the heart is the seed of consciousness and is connected to the mind, rubbing the chamomile-sesame oil blend in the heart area can calm the mind and bring balance to the whole body.
