CALM FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Let's face it, no matter how exciting it is, the holidays can be chaotic and overwhelming. Acknowledge the chaos and embrace a new tradition of tranquility. Despite the upcoming festivities being a special time to reconnect with family and friends, the new normal has left us stressed out. Find special moments even though things haven't gone as planned.
Before the holiday chaos starts and you are presented with a dizzying array of demands, schedule a bit of 'me' time every day. Take some time out for yourself; it could just be taking a bath, lighting a scented jar candle, doing something that will give you peace of mind. Give yourself the gift of relaxation without distractions; this will invigorate you, reduce anxiety, relieve your mind, and restore inner calm.
Get into the spirit of the holiday season, leaving out all of the pressure and noise associated with it. Aromas, like geranium, lavender, oak, and Patchouli, have proven to calm and soothe the mind.
