It’s easy to be swept up in these Fall changes and to forget to find time to relax! Maybe you’ve started school and become overwhelmed with deadlines, or maybe you’re readjusting after sending your own children off to school. Whether you’re a new employee learning the ropes or just dealing with the stress of a familiar job, becoming absorbed with work and responsibilities is inevitable in the Fall!
Finding time to take a break can be difficult, but there are simple ways to add some relaxation to a busy day. Sometimes pausing for just a brief moment to take a breath can relieve stress! Or, work some calming aromatherapy into your day. Scents like lavender are commonly used in aromatherapy for their stress-relieving effects. Typically, products with lavender scent use essential oil distilled from the plant; this natural oil has a wide variety of health benefits, not the least of which includes its calming effect on the nervous system. Lavender’s sedative effect on the nervous system is helpful for sleep disorders and anxiety. These relaxing benefits also make it a popular choice for other therapies, like acupuncture and massage!
1. Before going to a stressful work meeting, massage your hands with some lavender Natural Aloe Lotion. Your hands are covered in pressure points; massaging them, particularly the palm of your hand and the space between your thumb and index finger helps alleviate stress. Try it!
2. After a long day, treat yourself to a warm bath. Slip in a bag of Natural Chamomile Lavender Tub Tea, and let the lavender buds and rose petals infuse the water to make a natural and calming haven after a stressful day.
3. Moisturize the sensitive skin under your eyes with our All Natural Gentle Eye Serum. In addition to lavender essential oil, this beeswax spread also includes chia seed and coconut oils. Apply in the morning or before going to bed, and let the natural lavender and beeswax keep your skin feeling fresh.
Fall brings with it many changes, and it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of adjusting to the new season. Take a moment to relax. Share with us how you find ways to relax during a busy day!
