Scientifically proven: these 7 "high-efficiency rest methods" will let you restore energy in 10 minutes

I once read an interview with a female CEO. She said that she wakes up at 4 o'clock every day, goes to bed at 10 o'clock in the evening, rests for half an hour at noon, exercises for 45-60 minutes every day, and occasionally works until the early morning or overnight, which has been the case for 20 years.

She has basically achieved a double harvest in her family and career in her life. Her two sons have achieved good grades. One has been admitted to a key university, and the other has just received an admission notice from a prestigious Ivy League school in the United States this year.

I always think that these people have "special body", otherwise how could they only rest for 5 or 6 hours a day and still be full of energy? Most people live such a life and are already exhausted.

Later, I saw more and more articles after research on rest and sleep and found that some people are just like us in terms of physical strength, but they have one characteristic - they are good at taking breaks at just the right time.

Do you think you'll take a break in a clever way? A quick question for you: what do you do when you feel very tired?

Some people say they will make a cup of tea or coffee to refresh themselves. But this is not an effective way to rest.

Because of the stress of busy life and long hours of work, in addition to causing physical exhaustion to us, it also makes our brains feel tired.

Rest is not only for the body to rest, but also for the brain to rest.

Do you know how to rest your brain?

I found health experts have summed up the following 7 "efficient rest methods", as long as 10 minutes, you can restore your energy.

Method 1: Walk quickly

Shouldn't you try to avoid consuming your energy when you're tired?

In fact, there are two types of energy supplemented by rest: "physical" and "mental".

Most of our modern day-to-day activities are mental activities, usually mental rather than physical. So in this case, exercise is the best way to relieve fatigue.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes of brisk walking to generate a lot of energy, as muscle training helps pump blood from the lower extremities back to the heart, boosting cellular oxygenation and rejuvenating the brain.

Method 2: Watch some funny jokes

When we watch some funny jokes or shows, the brain secretes "endorphins", which are neurotransmitters related to emotional control, which can make us feel good and help relieve tension.

Therefore, when you are tired, you might as well try to find some funny shows and jokes to watch, and the fatigue will soon be swept away.

Method 3: Do what you are interested in

If you have some small hobbies in your daily life that can excite you, try taking a short time to focus on the things you like when you are tired. This will stimulate the brain's reward system, release the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, and let People feel refreshed.

Even if you stop and listen to a song or read a page of a novel, it will make you feel a lot better.

Method 4: Be in a daze and daydream

Research shows that daze is the easiest way to reduce stress. When the brain is in a daze and empty state, the cortex of the "complex problem solving area" will be more active.

Allowing ourselves to temporarily take a break from the busyness, to be in a daze, and to daydream to let go can be very helpful for our spiritual recovery.

Method 5: Find someone to chat

Chatting when you’re stuck, especially with people with high energy and more activity, can quickly help you get out of trouble.

The brain's nerves are very sensitive to sound conduction, so that's why we get emotional when listening to passionate music and feel down when we hear sad music.

In the same way, chat with someone who is energetic and loud, and your emotions can also be lifted and boosted by the other person.

Method 6: Talk to your loved one on the phone

Talking to someone you love, be it a family member, a partner or a close friend, can bring peace of mind.

Method 7: Get in touch with something you think is beautiful

The prefrontal cortex in the human brain is the area that controls negative emotions. The more active the frontal lobe, the more stable the mood will be.

Things like nature, art, music, all of which stimulate our sense of beauty, can act on our prefrontal cortex like a sedative to the brain.
