Stress. We all get stressed sometimes, and it’s not always a bad thing. When we’re stressed, the brain releases the hormones adrenaline and cortisol, which can spur us into action.
Too much stress is where we run into trouble. It can actually cause a decrease in productivity. It can lead to mental health issues like anxiety and depression, but it also affects physical health by causing problems with sleep, digestive issues, headaches, and weight gain.
In order to stay healthy during the winter, we need to keep our stress in check. Stress Away is a relaxing blend of Lime, Vanilla, Copaiba, Lavender, and Cedarwood.
I like to diffuse Stress Away on crazy days, but if I need a quick fix, I’ll put a couple of drops in my hand, rub my palms together, cup them over my nose, and just breathe. You can also add them to bath salts and soak for awhile. With two very young boys, I have lots of insanity at my house, and I need those moments to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the journey.
