The Best Scents for Relaxation and Sleep

Scent has the power to get your attention (consider the cinnamon bun stand at the mall) and affect your actions (ever move in close to your partner when he’s wearing your favorite cologne?). It can also be a great tool to get better sleep. These five olfactory options can help enhance your slumber. Lavender Long thought to contain a calming fragrance, this plant has been used to quell anxiety and agitation for ages. Its scent may slow down the nervous system, which relaxes the body and mind to improve sleep quality. Incorporating the scent into a relaxing massage by using a lavender-infused massage oil may have even more pronounced sleep-promoting effects. Vanilla This fragrance is famous for being a potent relaxer. In fact, people who smelled vanilla while completing a stress test had more stable heart rates and better blood pressure readings than those who took the stress test in an unscented room. Valerian It’s well known for its anxiety-reducing effects when taken orally. But the scent of valerian may further aid in helping you sleep: Rats who sniffed the pungent herb fell asleep faster and slept longer than those who didn’t. (Truth be told, valerian’s odor is reported to be less-than-fresh smelling. In the study with rats, the fragrance of roses gave a similar, though not quite as impactful, outcome. So if you can’t stand the smell of valerian, try the smell of roses!) Jasmine With delicate white petals, this flower’s sweet smell packs a surprising sleep punch. People who inhaled the scent while they slept experienced greater sleep efficiency, less movement during slumber, and overall better quality sleep. Surprisingly, its effects were even more powerful than those of lavender! Any scent you love Simply put, any fragrance that makes you happy can promote sleep. Your olfactory system is directly linked to the emotional center in your brain—so when you sniff something that brings back a good memory (like pumpkin pie) or makes you feel excited and full of anticipation (such as the smell of sunscreen), your body releases feel-good, relaxing chemicals that can set the stage for great sleep. Once you’ve found your sleep-enhancing scent, bring it into your bedroom. Buying a fragrant candle is an easy way to add fragrance to your space (just be sure to blow it out before your head hits the pillow!). You could also put a few drops of essential oil into a spray bottle with water and gently mist your pillow before bed, or sprinkle a few drops of scent onto a cloth or handkerchief and tuck it under your pillow. Sweet dreams!

Yoga Moves That Quiet the Brain and Relax the Body

Get bored easily? Try a setup with a wide variety of furniture. Instead of two small sofas facing one another (as in the traditional layout), situate two chairs across from a chaise longue. Place two stools across from a single large sofa to complete a square layout. While it seems like white kitchens have been… Mindy always gives great interviews, but a recent New York Times interview stood out; here are some fun quotes:
Originally, all photography was monochrome, or black-and-white. Even after color film was readily available, black-and-white photography continued to dominate for decades, due to its lower cost and its “classic” photo graphic look.
While many of us start our days with a bowl of cereal, Swift puts a little more effort into her mornings, making buckwheat pancakes topped with ham, Parm, and a fried egg, she tells Bon Appetit. She also downs a glass of OJ every day. There’s a reason that yogis always seem so upbeat and well rested: Practicing sun salutations, downward dogs, and other poses can be a great, natural way to improve sleep. And you don’t have to be a pro to benefit. People with insomnia who do yoga daily for at least eight weeks fall asleep faster and get more sleep at night. Yoga may also be able to help if work, relationship, or other angst is keeping you awake long past bedtime. In fact, over 85 percent of people who practice yoga say that it cuts down on stress. So what are you waiting for? Pull out a yoga mat, grab a water bottle, and stretch and bend your way to better sleep with these moves. Your Brain Isn’t as Sharp. When you wake up throughout the night, your cognitive ability (how fast you can think) and your attention span suffer as much as if you barely slept at all. This helps explain why driving when tired is so dangerous—you can’t react as quickly as you normally would to things like a car suddenly breaking in front of you. You Can’t Remember Things. When sleep isn’t continuous, it’s much harder to learn new skills and make new memories. This also goes for things that you learned the day before a bad night of sleep—your brain needs a long stretch of sleep to commit what you recently learned to memory. It’s not the total amount of sleep that’s important, it’s that the time asleep wasn’t regularly interrupted. Amyloid proteins, which are linked to Alzheimer’s disease, get removed from your brain when you get a good night’s sleep. But when people regularly have nights of interrupted sleep, brain imaging shows a buildup of those proteins. Waking up throughout the night makes you a lot crankier the next day, unsurprisingly. Being roused from sleep just a few times each night is enough to increase the chances of developing depression. There are lots of reasons why you might spend a restless night waking up every few hours, checking the clock, and feeling disappointed that it’s still nowhere near morning. Maybe there’s a new baby who has to be fed regularly, a sick dog who needs frequent trips to the backyard, neighbors who have rocking parties, or just a racing brain that makes staying asleep tough. Whatever the cause, you’re bound to wake up tired the next morning. But that’s not all. There are a few other ways that waking up often throughout the night affects your physical and mental health.

Loving You Sunny

Too much stress can undermine a good night’s sleep. And poor sleep can lead to even more stress, which can lead to more trouble sleeping the next night, creating a vicious cycle. Over time, that pattern can lead to a higher risk of heart disease, depression, and even dental problems (thanks to clenching and grinding the teeth at night). So what can you do about it? Start by taking control of your stress, especially as bedtime draws near. Here are some ways to calm your mind and prepare for sleep. Sample Some Calming Scents Aromatherapy is one strategy that you can try. Simply breathing in the scent of lavender can instantly ease anxiety and help you feel calmer. Slather on some lavender-scented lotion, put essential oils in a diffuser, or put a few drops into the water that you use to wash your face in the evening. Listen to Soothing Tunes Music has a powerful ability to counteract the body’s stress response by slowing the pulse, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the amount of stress hormones that are being pumped out. While slow, classical tunes are relaxing for many people, traditional music isn’t the only path to relaxation. Nature sounds, like rippling water, might be even more effective. Write in a Journal If a racing mind is keeping you up at night, the answer could simply be getting it all out of your head. One tangible way to do that: Spill it onto paper. Write down what happened during the day, what’s on your mind—whatever feels right to you. Make it easy by keeping a pen and notebook on your nightstand. Need a little help getting started? Consider a journal with prompts to inspire your writing. Do Some Yoga Whether you take an hour out of your day to visit a studio and take a class or just pull out a yoga mat in your living room to do some quick poses before bed, yoga can be a great way to relax your body and your mind. From its gentle stretches to its vigorous flows, yoga incorporates breathing exercises and meditative practices that help to reverse anxiety and get you ready for slumber.

Post Format: Gallery

Just as you switch over your closet when the temperature dips, a change in seasons is a good time to switch up your goals, motivations, and even the colors you wear. The energy still radiating from the fall equinox, as well as the energy from the recent full moon in Aries, may make you feel like whatever goals, dreams, and priorities you manifested in the summer just aren't working this fall. If you feel confused, conflicted, or unsure of next steps this month, one great way to make a powerful change is to change up the colors you're wearing. Use this guide to find out what color your body is craving, and how to use it to maximize and manifest your goals and dreams! —The Horoscope.com editors. In “healing” speak, the chakras represent the seven energy centers of the body. Running from the bottom of the tailbone up to the crown of the head, these seven spots are especially key for harnessing our full potential. That’s because our life force energy (some might call it “spirit”) runs through these cosmic portals, “powering up” different organs and, in turn, ruling different areas of our lives. Optimum wellbeing is the result of all seven chakras spinning at full speed, while blockages in any area can lead to dis-ease—often showing as emotional issues first, going on to manifest as physical ailments if not addressed. So, how to get your chakras spinning at top velocity? Since each chakra is represented by a different color, the color of your outfit can help “charge up” the energy center that needs a boost. It's a genius practice that, as a New York transplant who has most definitely adopted the local tradition of mainly wearing black, isn’t always the easiest to follow. That's why I often wear just a touch of the chakra power color I need—a canary-yellow bra, a green crystal pendant, hot pink socks.... There’s a total guide to the chakra system in my book, Material Girl, Mystical World, but check out the below tips on how to find the color that will make you feel—and radiate—amazing vibes!

10 Things Men Find Unattractive About Women

According to this article, these are the things men find unattractive about us women, written by a woman. You don’t need to read it because I break it all down, baby. On Makeup:
Keep it natural. Men don’t want to go in for a kiss and come out looking like they just joined the circus. Remember, foundation is supposed to be invisible to others and blend in with your skin. Stay away from glittery or shimmering eye makeup and NEVER use clumpy mascara. Minimal makeup is sexier.
What Carolyn Says: Yes, foundation is supposed to blend and clumpy mascara is no ones friend, but if I want to wear glitter and shimmery eye makeup, I’m gonna wear the fuck out of it. If I want to wear bright red lipstick and you have this fear of looking like a clown after kissing me? Honey, that’s your problem, not mine. On Hair:
While a fancy hairstyle may be ok for a glamorous night out, men prefer natural-looking hair. It’s more attractive to look at and feels nicer to touch when it’s free of gels or sticky products.
What Carolyn Says: Well, I have naturally curly hair so don’t fucking touch it. And when I have my Men Preferred Natural Looking Hair, I am 90 percent of the time, not a fan. It’s half curly, half frizzy, and pretty heinous to look at so I’m gonna go ahead and do my hair. I don’t like my hair all natural, I don’t give a shit if you do. On Shaving:
For the love of all that’s smooth — please shave. Men associate hair with testosterone and testicles so they don’t want to see it on a woman. Men like touching soft skin so say bye bye to the fuzz and make sure you use moisturizers and lotions to keep your skin smooth. It will send the message that you care about your hygiene.
What Carolyn Says: I can’t stop laughing at this. I can’t. I shave dem pits pretty much every three days. I don’t like armpit hair. I’m a pretty sweaty person so having armpit hair makes me sweat more. But if you want to wave your armpit hair like you just don’t care, you do you. Other than that, I am 1000 percent too lazy to keep up with shaving. Shaving is annoying. Men don’t have to shave, why the fuck do I? Right, because society! In the winter, I shave my legs maybe once every three months. Lady, I live in basically the tundra so I gotta keep warm. If you think I’m wearing anything but pants in the winter, you have another thing coming. In the summer, I shave my legs when I can start feeling the wind all up that bidniz. But because I’ve been #blessed with blonde hair, I don’t shave that often. When it comes to my body, I will go ahead and do what I please. AS EVERYONE SHOULD. And just because I don’t wax every fucking part of my body everyday to resemble a toddler doesn’t mean I don’t care about my hygiene. Fuck you.
 
On Dental Hygiene:
Let’s face it ladies — men look at our mouths. Bad breath and discoloured teeth are unattractive to the opposite sex. Cut down on the coffee or red wine. Use whitening toothpaste or strips to brighten your smile and ALWAYS carry gum or breath helpers in your purse. You never know when that kiss may be coming.
What Carolyn Says: I don’t drink coffee or red wine but if I did, I probably wouldn’t give it up just to find myself a suitable mate. I basically never have gum or breath helpers (...tic tacs?) in my purse. So if my guy kisses me and notices that my mouth wasn’t just dentist approved, will he be forever repulsed by me? Well if that’s the case, he is clearly way too high maintenance for me and can go suck a dick. DON’T FORGET THE BREATH MINTS.
 
On Alcohol:
Sure, a man likes to hang with a woman who knows how to have a good time but know when enough is enough. No man wants to see a woman puking in the bar bathroom or falling down on the dance floor.
What Carolyn Says: If you peruse my Facebook page, you will find that this isn’t true. I’ve puked in every bar in Edmonton. I’ve fallen down on every dance floor in Edmonton. I still have a husband, PRAISE JESUS M I RITE?! On Negativity:
Men like happy, positive women. So don’t complain about the lack of service at a restaurant or how long you had to wait in a line. Show your upbeat personality.
What Carolyn Says: Um. No. But thanks. Imma ‘splain to you when I’m not happy about something. I am not a robot. I am a human person who complains about shit. And you’re going to hear about it. And guess what! I want to know what grinds your gears! Because humans! But I’m a woman so I guess I’ll just keep my goddamn mouth shout. I AM CURRENTLY SO UPBEAT, HAPPY, AND POSITIVE ABOUT STANDING OUTSIDE IN -40 DEGREE WEATHER BECAUSE WE ARE WAITING IN LINE TO GET INTO THIS PIECE OF SHIT CLUB. IS IT OKAY THAT MY HAIR IS DONE UP BY USING PRODUCT? PLEASE APPROVE THIS. I AM A WOMAN SO I PROBABLY NEED VALIDATION. On Swearing:
Men like ladies with a little class so dropping the f-bomb in every sentence is a turn-off and does not show how sophisticated you really are.
What Carolyn Says: Fuck you, you fucking fuck. On Nagging:
No one wants to be told over and over again that they are doing something wrong. Choose your battles ladies. If they leave the toilet seat up, quietly put it down. If they don’t shave for a couple of days, deal with it. Let him hog the remote control once in awhile. Remember, there are probably things they don’t like about you too.
What Carolyn Says: THEN TELL ME? This is how relationships work. By speaking to each other. But letting it all fester and fester will INEVITABLY lead to you blowing the fuck up over something so minuscule. Sure, you don’t have to nag, but if you AREN’T GETTING THE FUCKING PICTURE HOW IS THAT MY FUCKING PROBLEM. On Being Needy:
Don’t ever drop your girlfriends and family for a man. Being too dependent on your man to make you happy is a turnoff. Expecting him to change to meet your needs is also very unattractive. They want to be loved for who they are.
What Carolyn Says: Preach. Finally, something we agree on. OH WAIT, except that you contradicted EVERYTHING you just mentioned above. “Expecting him to change to meet your needs is also very unattractive.” But it’s okay that we have to change ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING about our personalities and daily grooming routines for him? Don’t wear too much makeup, don’t do your hair all fancy all the time, shave everything, cut out certain things to make your teeth nice, don’t wear too much perfume, don’t drink excessively, be a robot, don’t fucking swear, no nagging up in this bitch, don’t be needy. But ABOVE ALL ELSE, don’t forget to ~*~be yourself~*~. If you want me to love my man just the way he is, then he can sure as fuck love me the way I am.
