Essential oils are known mood enhancers, get ready to uplift and energize your mind and body...
Isn't life like that? Sometimes you just feel 'out of sorts' or out of balance with yourself and your surroundings. Whether due to lack of sleep or a drive into busy downtown or just a day at work with no time for yourself, a bad mood can seem to come out of no where and grip you tightly when you're least expecting. It's best when you're feeling frustrated, angry or just feeling down to 'nip those thoughts and feelings in the bud' and keep them from taking over and gaining momentum within your day. Creating balance within your life requires some self-awareness, to evaluate how you're feeling during each part of your day, and then to respond accordingly. When you're feeling 'out of balance', it's really important to take a few minutes to re-invigorate, re-charge and re-evaluate how you're feeling before moving ahead in your day. Taking these precious few moments can help you to regain your sense of balance and begin anew to generate some 'good feeling thoughts' that carry momentum and help to sustain a better mood.
