Today Arlys Naturals, Aromatherapy Contessa joins the Natural Perfumer’s Guild, Suppliers and Associates for the “JOY” in January Blogging Event – a gift from the heart!
Winter is a time for stillness and calm (hibernation) so your body rhythm slows down – but it is only adjusting to its own internal clock.
For those who suffer with Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD this can be darn right difficult! What is SAD? It is a type of mood disorder/depression (along with other symptoms) that mainly appears during the winter months. It is often treated with light therapy, various medications, good nutrition and more. If you or someone you know experiences the dreaded dark days of winter, see about putting some “JOY” in your day with the use of uplifting essential oils and treating yourself a bit kinder.
Make yourself a GET OUT OF BED card and treat yourself to at least one thing daily you enjoy doing;
Listen to your favorite music or play an instrument;
Take a walk in the snow to breathe in fresh air and hopefully catch a few rays of sunshine;
Go watch a hockey game (I’m sure your local teams would welcome the support);
Eat a piece of dark chocolate daily (studies show its good for you in moderation);
Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea;
Read a funny book or watch a funny video;
Take a Vitamin D supplement daily;
Buy fresh colorful flowers for your room;
Wear bright colors;
Diffuse uplifting essential oils!
When you’re ready to get your “FUN” on, try this diffuser blend:
(A simple Diffuser Blend for optimism)
Mix essential oils and add to diffuser for inhalation.
Also a good blend to add to pocket travel diffusers.
