Wellness: MIND RESET

Updated: Nov 12

FEELING STRESSED... a little (or a LOT) strung out these days?



You're definitely not alone. These are crazy times we find ourselves in. Global chaos aside (if that's even possible!), everyday pressure can come from any part of your life—work, relationships, errands, parenting, school. Especially in these uncertain times, we all could use a little boost in helping to better understand how to be content and how to better handle life's ups and downs.


Naturally, Young Living believes that essential oils are part of the solution! We love to use empowering essential oils and easy calming techniques to find balance in the many situations we find ourselves in every day. Find your best strategy with help from our favorite oils and tricks!

Before you jump into our tips, get a refresher on the best ways to use essential oils. Some of our easiest usage tips for topical and aromatic oils include:

  • Gently rubbing oil between your hands and taking deep breaths while cupping your hands close to your nose.

  • Applying oil to the nape of your neck or to pulse points, such as your wrists or temples.

  • Diffusing oil in your space, whether at home, in the office, or in the car.

  • Placing a few drops on a tissue or cloth and using for inhalation.

FEELING IRRITABLE?

Life doesn't always unfold as smoothly as we'd like. Hit every red light on your morning drive? Find a passive-aggressive email in your inbox? Tension with a loved one? Some days it feels like nothing is going right, and other days you simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Whatever the source of your frustration, take a pause to refocus and realign with a little help from God's precious gift of nature...


Excellent oil blends for irritability:

  • Forgiveness: Forgive yourself and others with a scent that invites you to release negative emotions.

  • Release: Let go of anger and frustration and promote balance with this rich, grounding aroma.

  • Stress Away: Unwind with this relaxing and comforting aroma.

FEELING STUCK?

Let's face it, some days you just don’t feel quite like yourself. Whether you know the cause—an unexpected breakup or unresolved argument—or you’re simply stuck in a rut, being proactive about your feelings can help you take control. Try some of the oils suggested below and speak with a trusted friend to work through your emotions.


Excellent oils & blends for feeling stuck:

  • Hope: Reconnect with feelings of strength and stability with this grounding aroma.

  • Sacred Mountain: Promote feelings of strength, renewed resolve, and grounding with this earthy aroma.

  • Tangerine or Grapefruit: Uplift your day with a bright, cheery aroma that creates a happy, contented mindset.

FEELING OVERWHELMED?

Between bills to pay, permission slips to sign, fridge to fill, and texts to respond to, it’s no surprise you sometimes feel like there are too many tabs open in your computer and in your mind (or am I the only one??). In the midst of the chaos, take a moment to center your life with these wonderful blends.


Excellent oil blends for feeling overwhelmed:

  • Grounding: Diffuse this scent to be able to better cope & keep negative emotions in check.

  • Peace & Calming II: Find your happy place with this gentle, relaxing and comforting aroma.

  • Transformation: Surround yourself with a scent that helps you replace negative beliefs with uplifting thoughts.


PRACTICAL TIPS

Use your favourite essential oil usage technique and try one (or several—or even all!) of the suggestions below:

  • FIRST: pray and invite your loving Father into the situation. He always, always has your best interests at heart.

  • Give yourself a 10-minute “time out” to wind down and refocus.

  • Take care of your basic needs. A quick nap or a healthy snack can do wonders when it comes to moodiness from lack of sleep or food.

  • Get away for a few minutes with a book break, nature walk, or simply listen to some uplifting or soothing music.

  • Focus on mindfulness and the present moment with a breathing exercise.

  • Write it out. Journal about your feelings, and create a gratitude list.

  • Ask a special someone for a hug.

  • Practice a positive affirmation: I am loving and forgiving, and I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthen's me!


Happy oiling!
