The holiday season is here along with a winter storm sweeping across Southern California which is intensifying my strong desire to be home. This time of year I usually love to be out with friends, family and see all the lights and magic of the holidays but lately my comfy spot is at home. I have spent the Thanksgiving week in a total refresh and it’s been exactly what I needed. My hope is some of this will help you when you need a holiday break.
Checking in and listening to my emotions didn’t always come easy to me but it’s become a real priority this year. I may be late to the game on this but I have experienced the link between stress and my physical health. After several months of an unstable and toxic work environment that was out of my control, I saw the toll it took on my overall well-being including energy level and inner peace. When one area is suffering, I’m out of balance and need time for a wellness tune up.
What works for me…pure essential oils!
Essential oils have been a lifesaver for me. When I breathe in an oil, I experience an immediate shift in energy and mood. Stress Away, Peppermint and Orange essential oils keep me grounded and centered. Which was so needed this year due to work madness.
It’s so simple and effective and usually just a drop of oil is all it takes to refresh. I put a drop of oil in my palm, rub hands together and then rub my hands down the back of my neck, shoulders and lastly cup my palms near my nose to inhale the peace. The oils renew my spirit and bring that feeling of peace I always get from sitting on the sand and watching the waves. Learn more about my oil journey and reach out with questions…they do work!
Finding ways to bring the feeling of inner peace and joy from the ocean to our home is the very essence of Urban Beach Baby and essential oils do this for me.
The little things work for me, simple shifts in my daily habits and time for myself have made all the difference. What works for you?
