Change… without change there could not be growth, like the seed which becomes a tree, the caterpillar which becomes the butterfly, we too as creatures of gaia must sometimes step above our comfort and evolve into what we are meant to be…… Ourselves!
Too often coaches, books, shows, mentors, they use techniques and speeches from their own inspirational heroes, they try to model their systems instead of making their own, I will not be sorry for who i am, i invite people outside their comfort zones, i am who i am, i say what i feel, hear, see and will continue to do so until my last breath!
Each and every one of you in this world can be whoever you wish to be, but being yourself is the only way you will grow, so change the pattern, change from being the sheep and become the shepherd, yes, there will be wolves but over come the fear, and rise above!
Believe in yourself!
Our time is now to stand and shine and be who we are meant to be….
Stress and anxiety have become common issues in our fast-paced lives. This has lead to a rise in stress-related health issues, negatively impacting both our mental and physical health. Stress and anxiety can be attributed to a lack of sleep, increasing lifestyle commitments and work pressures.
Aromatherapy has been used since ancient times to promote feelings of calm and relaxation. Inhaling and topically applying pure essential oils can help to alleviate stress, insomnia or depression. This natural solution works by stimulating areas of the brain that are responsible for our emotions. Combined with practicing mindfulness, essential oils can effectively help to release negative emotions, calm the mind and reduce stress.
Here are a few of the essential oils for stress and anxiety.
1. Lavender Essential Oil
One of the most common essential oils for relaxation is Lavender. Lavender essential oil is a must have if you regularly experience stress and anxiety. It has been proven to restore the nervous system by lowering blood pressure and heart rate. It can help to calm the nerves, appease restlessness and improve sleep quality. Use a lavender rollerball to apply to your temples and wrists, or combine with a carrier for a relaxing massage oil.
2. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Extracted from the Indonesian Cananga tree, Ylang Ylang essential oil promotes feelings of comfort and joy. It simultaneously reduces heart rate, improves your mood and promotes relaxation. Inhaling Ylang Ylang can help release negative emotions, reducing stress and acting as a natural anxiety and depression remedy.
3. Bergamot Essential Oil
Bergamot essential oil is produced from the peel of the aromatic citrus fruit. It is often used in traditional Chinese medicine to enhance the flow of energy, fight bacterial infections and support digestive health. It is an effective antidepressant due to its mood enhancing qualities, promoting feelings of joy, freshness and energy. Bergamot essential oil improves blood circulation, stimulates hormonal secretions and digestive health, bringing balance to the body.
4. Clary Sage Essential Oil
With a beautiful earthy smell, Clary Sage is effective in calming stress and anxiety. The oil acts as an antidepressant by promoting feelings of wellbeing and inner peace. Clary Sage is also known to act as a great hormone balancer and help reduce symptoms of PMS. Apply directly to feet or pulse points to help balance hormones. Alternatively combine with a few drops of chamomile to enjoy in a hot bath.
5. Basil Essential Oil
One of the lesser known essential oils, Basil is one of the best essential oils to reduce anxiety and enhance mood. Considered the queen of herbs in India, it is revered and treated as sacred due to its highly beneficial properties. Basil essential oil has a calming effect on the nervous system, reducing anxiety, fatigue, mental strain and depression. It also acts as a natural stimulant, promoting peace and clarity of mind. Add a few drops to your diffuser and enjoy the soothing and relaxing aroma.
