I think it’s safe to assume that everyone, at some point, feels the weight of stress in his or her life. Whether it’s kids, school, work, or some other demand, stress is an expected part of life.
Stress is rarely something that can be avoided, and thankfully, it isn’t always a bad thing. Stress can motivate and stretch us. It can push us to achieve more and go further. These changes can be good when they are properly balanced with other things in life.
On the other hand, though, the stress that weighs us down and remains long-term can negatively affect our well-being. It’s this kind of stress that we want to learn to deal with in a healthy manner.
Seeing how I’m the kind of person who can easily become stressed when I take on too much or don’t have enough pleasurable activities scheduled into my week, I have learned a few tricks to help me cope in a healthy way with negative stress when it arrives.
One of the most helpful things I’ve found for stress management is to use essential oils.
Before I knew much about essential oils, I wrote them off as only working to help some people feel relaxed. However, now that I’ve researched and studied them more, I’m not only convinced that science shows how effective they are at relaxing the body and mind, but I have first-hand experience with it as well.
I’m over on the Herbal Academy blog today sharing some great essential oil blends that you can use in a personal essential oil inhaler in order to get some quick and easy stress relief when you need it. Plus, learn about their newest herbal course specifically about stress. It’s so good!!
