It may be strange to find an information page about relaxation on a website dedicated to fighting and removing cellulite - but when seen in context it is really not as strange as what it seems at first glance.

Although the human body is robust and has the ability to rejuvenate - it is also a frail system that needs to be looked at, and has a range of requirements that need to be met in order to function properly.
Stress is inherently good when present in quantities that spur us on to do better work, to perform better and to get on with life, but when the levels of stress and anxiety increase to a point where the body and psyche cannot cope, it starts to work against us, and becomes counter-productive.
To some extent, stress is dependant on the attitude we have towards life and how we live it - if you see an upset or problem as a challenge, you will be more likely to cope with it, whereas if you experience it as defeat or rejection you are in all probability suffering from stress to some degree.
To feel tired after a good day's work is natural and good, as this prepares us to enjoy our rest and sleep, but when too much stresses and strains are placed on the body you may be constantly tired, fatigued, irritable, jumpy, lethargic, depressed etc. (Do any of these symptoms sound kind of familiar?)
When you are over tensed and stressed, you stop breathing properly, and enough oxygen is not exchanged, and carbon dioxide and other gaseous wastes cannot be removed properly, the digestive system starts having problems and constipation or diarrhea can result.
Sleep disorders start to interfere with our periods of rest, and we cannot sleep properly and when this happens the body cannot rest, repair and heal itself.

The above exercise may sound a bit 'alternative' to some people, but believe it, this exercise works and after doing it every day for a week, you will feel the difference, and those around you will also notice it.
Sleeping is nature's way of making us relax and recharge our batteries, but then our sleep must be deep, relaxed and peaceful.
Taking sleeping pills is not a healthy habit, and if you do suffer from insomnia, then you could look at some more natural ways to help you sleep.
A cup of camomile tea at bedtime can help calm you, or a glass of hot milk, high in tryptophan can also help with inducing sleep. Some people like to add honey or molasses to the hot milk and even take calcium supplements to help promote peaceful sleep.
If you are finding that you continuously have the need to sleep, it would be a good idea to have a general check-up with your health practitioner to ensure that nothing is amiss, and then also consider the possibility of being in a state of depression, since continuous sleeping is one of the symptoms of a clinically depressed person.
