48-Hour Rejuvenation: The At-Home Spa Getaway
The 3 Biggest Energy Drainers
These days, it's easy to get bogged down in bad news and bad habits. Relaxing and indulging in "me time"? Ah, the luxuries of yesteryear.
But taking time out to re-juice and rejuvenate has never been more important. "We're in the middle of a human energy crisis," says Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, author of From Fatigued to Fantastic, who blames lack of sleep, dehydration, and bad nutrition as the primary culprits. "We're in a constant state of high alert when we don't have to be."
To offset the stress from these manic times, Teitelbaum urges people to detach from news overload, get eight hours of sleep nightly, and take their vitamins (B-Complex and magnesium supplements, plus a daily multivitamin).
But in order to truly refresh your perspective and reinvigorate your energy levels, you're going to need a mind-body overhaul. For the next two days, forget your 30 unread e-mails, the looming office deadlines, and the fact that the dirty laundry keeps piling up. We've got your 48-hour at-home rejuvenation plan right here, all with the aim of re-booting your internal hard drive and jumpstarting a new outlook on life.
