Tip # 1. Morning Walk: Try to get up early, before anyone gets up and head outside for a walk. Make it a time for just you and the day. With the crisp, morning air, it can help to set the tone for day, clear the mind and cheer you up.
Tip # 2. Create calming aroma scent: Yes, I love essential oils. They don't get enough credit. Make sure you purchase essentials oils from a reputable supplier. Here are a few receipes for you to consider :
- 3 drops Mandarin
- 1 drop Rose
- 1 drop Lavender
- 10 drops Chamomile
- 5 drops Lavender
Bath: Same rule, you will need a carrier oil or the essential oils will stay at the top and not mix with your bath water.
Tip # 3. Clean the House: Sometimes clutter stresses us out. Do yourself a favour and hire a cleaning person to help you out and by mid-day, your home will be clean and orderly. Seriously, if your home is in order, it feels like your life is in order. Once completed, spray the home with Pure 100% Lavender Hydrosol, sit and enjoy.
Tip # 4. Leave the House: Don't feel like cleaning, feeling cranky, walking around with a frown on your forehead? Then leave the house, call up freinds, your mom or with who ever you can just spend a few hours wasting the afternoon. Relax, enjoy and go to a mall, lunch, get a pedicure, take a yoga class or hit the gym. My favourite is to drive up to Mont Saint Sauveur and enjoy an outdoor activity.
Tip # 5. Try a Diffuser: There are many methods to diffuse essential oils into a room. Of couse, the essential oil blend is the most fun to create as the natural aroma that fills the home is wonderful. If you don't know where to purchase a diffuser start with your local natural food store.
One more tip, try a spa couple day with your loved one, it is lots of fun!
