The pace of life, whether you are a mum or not, is fast. We’ve always got to be here or there, meet this or that deadline, or keep on top of the daily to do list. It drives our adrenaline to rush; to keep up with this constant pressure, and it can do us harm in the long run. It is important to find things that can ground us, relax us and make us stop and breathe. Feel the wind brush atop our skin, hear the world around and listen to what our body needs as well.
I have 5 things that I do when the world (and my heart sometimes) is racing….
1. I walk
I get out somewhere green, usually with this guy and I walk and be present. I look up, I listen, I breathe and I feel every part of my body relax, especially my mind
2. I use my oils
When things are really chaotic I reach for my essential oils. Balance is a common choice. It contains blue chamomile, spruce, ho wood and blue tansy; all grounding essential oils in their perfect ratios to slow your heartbeat, switch off the noise in your mind and bring life back to balance.
I can talk to you about other oil options in a free Wellness Consult or my oils for emotions course. Drop me a message if you’re interested in finding out more.
3. I exercise
This is a must for my mental wellness. If I don’t get my heart beating every day I suffer for it in my mood, self-esteem and energy. There are so many obstacles and excuses that get in the way of regular exercise when you are a parent, but you just have to get up and MOVE! Pinterest is a great tool to find workouts you can do at home with however many minutes you can get your hands free, even if it is just 10! Here is my pinterest board of top choices!
Happy Thoughts and Much Love 😊
