We all know the burden of carrying around a lifetime of stress can negatively impact our mood but did you know that stress can actually take a toll on your well being? Stress can cause headaches, restlessness, fatigue, anxiety, and have a negative impact on your overall health. While some triggers that typically stress us out are able to be avoided completely, it can be hard to de-stress when most of the triggers in our lives like work and relationships, aren’t able to be avoided.
Most of us have to deal with stress every day, that is just a fact of life. That doesn’t mean that we have to let it take over, there are many ways to counteract the negative stressors in your life. Incorporating some relaxing time into your daily life and taking advantage of products that have a calming effect can help you to de-stress and stop the negative impact the burden of stress is having on you.
Aromatherapy- Scent can trigger a memory quickly and strong, probably more so than any other of our senses. The smell of lighter fluid brings me back to my dad cooking on the hibachi grill, he was very liberal with the stuff when cooking for us. I can not smell the stuff without thinking about those ghetto barbecues we would have back in the day. I have a bottle of perfume that my grandmother used to wear and whenever I spray it in the air, I get a warm feeling, kind of like she is there with me. My mood improves right away and these things have made me a firm believer in aromatherapy. The power of smell is quite amazing.
