No matter what we do in our lives, you can’t run from stress. Whether at work, driving in the car, or especially with family!
With the holidays upon us, we are going to need something to help us ease our pain and drugs is not the answer. Of course, the best way to ward off stress is to breathe deep.
Any time you are feeling stress, just take a moment to stop and check in with your breath. Stress comes when we either stop breathing regularly or from “short breathing”.
Short breathing is when you do not take breath all the way into your diaphragm and it only reaches your chest area. So make sure you check in with yourself every so often and see if you are breathing deep and also exhaling all of your oxygen.
Now, one great way of helping you to relieve stress is with aromatherapy and essential oils:
Rosemary Oil helps aide the liver and skin and can be very calming on the nerves.
Lavender Essential Oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent tonic for the nerves. Therefore, it helps in treating migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness and increases mental activity.
- Take 2 ounces of distilled or purified water (not tap water) and add 20 drops of lavender oil and 20 drops of rosemary oil into an essential oil spray bottle.
- Shake well
- You now have your own calming spray and can have it ready when the family is over for the holidays and they are driving you nuts!
