OMG! yesterday was one of those days when stress hit me from everywhere right from when I woke up. We all have had days when we wake up with the million “to do” items on your mind. Yes, it was one of those days when I woke up with tons of anxiety and million things I needed to get done. Being busy focussing on my up coming classes, my husband Asad being busy at work including traveling for work, the kiddo feeling insecure about all these changes, I felt that my mind was stuck in a whirlwind.
Before the kiddo was born, I used to meditate every morning before starting my day. Now, if I can get 5 minutes to actually focus on my breath, I am happy.
Having woken up like that, I decided to not get going on my “to do” items. Instead, I decided to sit down for meditation. But before I did that, I applied some Frankincense on my temples and my ever favorite, Stress Away to my wrists and behind my ears. It totally calmed me down allowing me to meditate and take an inventory of my life and day.
I then sat for a bit which really helped my morning. I also added a few drops of Stress Away to my water before we went to Walden pond. It really helped me stay focused on my son and stay in the present moment. So, after I put him down his nap , I was able to leave the house (the baby sitter was there) and focus on the tasks at hand. I actually got a lot more done than what I would have if I had started my day with that level of anxiety and frenzy.
Every person needs to have a bottle of StressAway with them at all times. I carry it in my kit at all times. It is this great blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea and Lavender. It smells divine. Try some….
