Aromas to Improve Your Work Commute
Think your career is stressful and exhausting? Perhaps it's more than your workload that's causing you undue stress. If you have a lengthy commute to and from office, there's no question it can wreak havoc on your nerves. After all, most commuters spend a large fraction of their days sitting in slow-moving traffic with others who would also rather be elsewhere. This frustrating routine can even be more exhaustive than your work itself! Your nerves and patience are tested, and by time you reach your destination you find yourself on edge.
The good news is you can cope with your commute without getting trapped in an endless cycle of nervousness, anxiety and tension. Aromatherapy is a versatile way to improve your mood and help you relax and find balance.
Today I'll show you how to transform your commute from a dreadful activity into a pleasant and private moment to yourself. All you need is an essential oil diffuser and a few select essential oils and you can create customized fragrances to diffuse in your car that will help you find tranquility, joy, and opportunity to replenish your energy!
-YOUR RITUAL- Start every commute with a brief mantra to put you in correct frame of mind to enjoy ride. When you first get into your car and before you start your engine, take several deep breaths and say following:
"Today I feel totally in touch with myself. I am grounded and enjoy being here and in present. I am blessed with joy, love and peace."
Take a few more deep breaths. Visualize yourself integrating those words, breathing them in. Now turn engine on and enjoy ride!
-TO PREPARE YOUR BLENDS- In a 10 ml bottle, add your oils from recipes below. Use only pure and undiluted essential oils. These blends SHOULD NOT be used directly on skin. They are for diffusion only. Review instructions from your diffuser for appropriate dosage.
