5 Everyday Wellness Rituals
1. Journal at the begin of your day
Instead of reaching for your phone or other screen devices, why not reach for your favourite essential oil and journal? Take a deep inhalation straight from the bottle and note down anything that may be on your mind right from opening your eyes. It might be about a dream you had, stresses from the day before, something you are grateful for or even things you need to remember to do that day. The list is endless, but it is a great what to clear the mind & start the day on productively.
2. Create your desired atmosphere
The environment around you can have a huge impact on your mood. Never underestimate a good diffuser blend on a bad day. Whether it's after your journaling or while you're at work, pop 6-8 drops of your desired essential oil to create the perfect atmosphere for your day.
3. Nourish your mind, body & soul
Eat the rainbow, move your body & listen to your favourite song.
We know another foundation of good health is our ability to digest and detoxify, fill your body with nutrients and if needed you can assist the process with a DIY digestive blend or our Digestive Essential Oil Rollerball. Exercise is great for your body on so many levels from your organs, muscles to your brain. Grab your Energy Essential Oil Rollerball, apply to your wrists and go for a walk! Most importantly, listen to your favourite song. Music can have an incredible effect on your day - surround yourself with something fun, upbeat and mood enhancing.
4. Prioritise self-care
Sometimes self-care can be exaggerated. Self-care can simply be saying 'no', it can be calling a family member or friend, it can be sitting down to enjoy your morning coffee, it can be rolling on your favourite essential oil. Self-care doesn't need to be an excessive thing but it should be a daily thing.
5. Create & stick to a bedtime ritual
For most of us, a stressful day or a few sleepless nights are just a part of life, yet, we cant run on stress hormones forever. We need to recharge and repair our bodies through actively seeking relaxation and giving ourselves plenty of time for rest. Many essential oils help us to relax and drift off into a healing sleep. Choose your relaxing essential oil and diffuser for up to 30minutes before bed, minimise your screen time about an hour before bed and create a calm atmosphere around you.
