Do you ever feel like there is never enough time in the day to complete your to-do list? Times can seem overwhelming when you’re constantly trying to “juggle” everything life throws your way! If this is true, rest assured you are not alone. By putting ourselves in a positive, balanced and healthy lifestyle, we can achieve a less stressful lifestyle. How exactly can you change your habits to live a more positive, balanced and healthy lifestyle?
Starting the Day Right: To start, save about 15-20 minutes every morning for a quite meditation session. You can also start your day stress-free from the very beginning by waking up 15 minutes earlier to tackle a few small tasks!
Planning Ahead is Never a Bad Idea: Having a written agenda for the day can improve organizational skills and productivity. Planning a day or two ahead will help you stay focused and truly stick to what needs to be done. It can also help you schedule meetings or dates without the hassle of going through a stack of sticky notes.
Some “Me” Time: A little bit of “Me” time can go a long way. This short but effective amount of time can allow you to simply relax, think and review… the perfect time to schedule your day and remain focused. Never underestimate the power of private quiet time.
Keeping it Positive: Try to make it a serious commitment to yourself and only focus on positive outcomes and solutions.
Nature Can Be Great Therapy: Take advantage of Aromatherapy and everything Mother Nature has to offer. For instance, essential oils have been proven to help balance and create an uplifting feeling through Aromatherapy. Citrus oils such as grapefruit and orange can naturally lift up your spirits! If you are feeling the need to clear your mind, try Clary Sage or Rosemary. Both oils reduce mental “chatter” and support effective decision making and stronger focus.
