How is your life treating you?

This last month has been challenging to say the least. You just think you are getting things a bit more organized and then you realize how much more you have to do. Now the decision is what should you do next? Nothing! Tackle a small job!! Work each day on keeping things more organized!!! This is on you. How are you going to move forward?

You can write another list with numbers according to their importance and assign them or you could put assignments on straws and have family members draw a straw and be responsible for getting that chore done. You could try putting projects that need to be done in a box and have family members draw an assignment. Problem is some assignments may be tougher than others.

Halloween went by in a flash and Thanksgiving is running to meet us. Black Friday is being toted every day. It almost makes you feel like you need to put on roller skates to keep up. Everyone is having sales and more sales.

I remember when we all started Christmas preparation, not before Halloween, but after Thanksgiving letting families enjoy Thanksgiving . The weather would be starting to change. Originally coming from Iowa, I remember Thanksgiving with snow. It was so exciting. Maybe the Holidays were hectic, and only the good things remain in my memory bank.

What about a time out day! ! Even half a day Time out from everything related to a schedule, errands, work, school etc. Only relaxing fun things can be done on that day. OK, we probably have to put a time limit on that or the whole family will rebel.

Here are some suggestions for you:

Make your home smell enchanting . Purchase a diffuser and some essential oils that makes you like relax, such as lavender. Then relax.

Find someone to watch your little ones for a morning or afternoon. You will then pay them back so they can take a time out day.

Think, do you want a bubble bath, or would you rather go to a yoga class? Do you want a massage to work the kinks out of your neck and shoulders. Don’t forget the guys here maybe they want a day out also.

Maybe you just want to take a nap without interruption, listen to some nice music or read a good book. Treat yourself to lunch out. Do something spontaneous without worrying about having to pick someone up, take someone to a doctor visit etc.

Think how refreshed you will feel and you can begin again with renewed energy and confidence.

Essential Oils, a journal would nice.

Considering giving essential oils a try? It is alot of fun and certainly benficial to some. It all depends on what you are hoping to achieve.

I began using essential oils very slowly and now I’m really excited about learning more. Knew absolutely little about essential oils. Now use a diffuser with lavender at night to help sleep better. Some nights it works absolutely wonderful for me, but on other nights doesn’t work at all. Why?

Does the difference lie in what kind of a day, I had? Lazy and relaxed or very hectic with lots of stress? A day where nothing gets done? I honestly don’t know but since I don’t have small children I can’t use that as a stressor.

No matter what I want to continue to work and learn about essential oils. Work with people who are trying essential oils to find out if they are getting any good benefits . So I have an essential oil journal that I hope will help us all determine how and what essential oils benefit us and even why.

Fall is a good time to begin using essential oils as there are many essential oils that smell lovely and this is such a fun time of year for scents.

Think about using this Essential Oil Journal and see what you can find out:

  • Name of essential oil
  • date started
  • How many times a day are you using the oil?
  • Benefit of essential oil to you or person using it.
Includes cover, 2 sheets for benefits of oil, and 2 sheet for blends.

Blogging and what is working?

Finding your niche!! Finding your niche!! Sounds like the start of a poem, but it isn’t as I am surely not able to compose a poem. Most of my thought processes have been put into finding my niche.

Are you having the same thoughts, what should be my niche and where should I go from here. All of a sudden you have this wonderful idea and think oh that would be a great niche. You think I will go right out there and do some research, and oh my goodness there are many blogs with the same idea you had.

So how do you find your niche. What are your ideas for finding your niche? Have you thought about all the things that you really are attracted to? What are your hobbies? Gardening, Landscaping, Woodworking, Writing, Art, and Sports. Maybe you are interested in politics, religion or television. What ever you determine is your niche or become really interested in, write on it. Focus on it.

When writing try to focus on one thing at a time. Do not jump around, but keep on target. You need a beginning, middle and an ending.

Life style is about the closest I can come to having a niche at this time. I can still pursue reflections on health, family, blogging and essential oils, under this umbrella.

Essential Oils, don’t forget to use them.

Essential oils can be used neat or put into blends, but you need to understand, which oils are capable of being used as stated above. Neat means the oil can be used alone. Blends are the oils which can be mixed together.

When using essential oils always remember less is more. Essential oils can be very powerful. It is very interesting to learn about them. When I read an essential oil article I am looking for how well the author can express themselves and how great their understanding of essential oils is.

I am certainly no expert but I am always trying to learn. Amazed when the light bulb goes off and I really get it.

Essential Oils can be an adventure for you. If you decide to try them, then be sure you don’t forget to use them. When someone tells me how anxious they are, how stressed they are, how much pain they are feeling, my suggestion is to try an essential oil. The biggest problem is the person keeps forgetting to use them. You at least a week to determine any benefit. Benefit good, you will want to continue with the essential oil.

Always consult with your medical professional if you have serious medical problems, or are pregnant.Do not use essential oils if you are pregnant. Don’t forget to include your mental health professional. Your health is very important and as we age we all realize how precious it is

Blogging!

Blogging remains such an interesting avenue of expression! One day you are full of ideas to write about and the next day you think, my brain is not functioning at all. It has taken a vacation.

The wonderful thing about blogging is you can keep creating and learning at the same time.

Suggestions for you to think about:

  • Niche: Do you have one? Does what you have chosen really reflect you and your expertise? Do some research and see what you can find out about yourself and what you know, what you have done and what you really enjoy. That is hard to do. Trying to narrow mine down.
  • Do something new? – write your blog, add pictures, even if you think it won’t look good. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
  • Do you use keywords? Read about them and start using them.
  • Do you add links?
  • Do you understand, the terminology, that everyone is using? Learn one new thing at a time. i.e. plr. I really did not know what plr meant until about a month ago.
  • If you are artistic, creative and understand graphics you have a leg up on many of us.
  • Enjoy and continue to learn.

Essential Oils, helping you to focus?

Updated 6/14/21

Problems focusing on your studies, your everyday work life or just every day life in general. Trivia comes into your mind when you start studying for a test. Trivia like, what video game can I play? Who is that cute guy or gal sitting at the table next to me.

Test time comes and your palms are sweaty, your mind is a blank. Try the following:

Develop a plan for studying. Make sure your notes from classes are adequate and you understand what you have written.

Key word here understand! If you do not understand how can you possibly prepare for a test? Tutor! May help.

Don’t skip classes and then wonder why the teacher is getting ready to flunk you.

What about trying an essential oil to help you with this problem.

There are several essential oils that may benefit you if you need to learn how to concentrate and focus.

Rosemary- steam distilled. May help to promote a sense of clarity. Cognition and remembrance can be better.

Ylang Ylang -floral sweet smell. Helps promote positive mind set.

Peppermint- can sniff directly from the bottle or diffuse. Helps with remembering.

Clarity Sage – has more of a herb aroma. May be calm and relaxing. Remember you don’t want to fall asleep.

Bergamot-mayhelp alleviate stress and anxiety. Not recommended for children under 5 years of age.

Many essential oils used in a diffuser provide a wonderful, steady aroma to enhance your ability to concentrate for a long period of time. This might just be what you need . Read essential oil instructions.

Some essential oils can be taken internally. DO NOT TAKE any essential oils internally without talking to a qualified professional. DO NOT give to children without talking to a qualified professional.

Always know what your essential oil might help you with. Be safe and read directions.

Tension, stress and anxiety!

Updated blog originally named Essential Oils can they relieve stress?

Essential Oils can they help relieve tension, stress, and that anxious feeling that is always hovering about your head like a black cloud? What a good question and of course the answer is up to you and how you feel about essential oils and whether or not you are up for learning about their benefits or maybe no benefit for you.

Think about the following as you move along here

essential oils and my health!

essential oils and understanding how to use!

We all have times where the above, tension, stress, and anxiety are prominent in our lives. How about right before that first big date, or when you are getting ready for a test, or the interview where you have to do a video first before anyone human will even talk with you. How about this one, you are going to take your driver’s test for the first time and all of a sudden your mind goes blank. Remember your wedding where everyone else was so tense and you just wanted everything to be over with.

The world of essential oils is here for you to venture into, to see if they might improve some of the above situations and help you

Here are a few essential oils that may help with your stress and tension:

Angelica Essential Oil – Has a calming aroma – You can diffuse it, dilute it or apply it directly to the skin. Helichrysum Essential Oil – Diffuse while doing homework. – Can diffuse it, directly inhale or apply topically Spearmint Essential Oil – Uplifts and calms. Can diffuse it, directly inhale or dilute and apply to the skin.

Sense of Rushing?

Does anyone else feel like there is a sense of rushing, rushing in the world, even in the blogging world? Everyone is pushing themselves to develop new ideas, designs, blogs, lists , calendars, to keep us all on our toes . I applaud those of you who are fantastic in these areas and hit the right buttons at the right time. No one can say there isn’t enough information out there to learn everything possible. The good, the not so good and the wonderful.

No one can say that bloggers are uncaring, don’t understand what you are going through, never had to work as hard as you do, never had to work a full time job, never had financial troubles , never had their feelings hurt, never had their writing criticized . The reason you can’t say they (bloggers) are uncaring is because it isn’t true and you know it, especially if you have researched any of your favorite, fantastic, fabulous, friendly, famous bloggers.

Right now stop that feeling of rushing, relax and take a step back.

Ask yourself just exactly you are trying to accomplish for yourself and your family:

Begin all over again with the organization thing.

Take one thing at a time, limit buying courses until you see what you have and what you really need?

Have you purchased anything related to organization, stress relief, taking things slowly while you reflect on what you are trying to do?

Hope this blog has helped you some and that you might find some benefit in following me.

What do you think the woman in your life would like for Christmas ? If you honestly don’t know maybe the following might help you.

Essential Oils – Young Living is my oil of choice and I have had some really good results with ten oils I use. The are also many other good selections available for those interested. There are differs that would make wonderful gifts.

Got my teeth cleaned last week. A procedure I just dread. The hygienist had a scent diffusing in the treatment room. It was not a heavy scent and I found I was so much calmer while getting my teeth cleaned, which believe me is not joy.

Young living essential oils make a wonderful fun with a small diffusers and some really relaxing scents. Perhaps a scent to remind you of walking along trails in hiking areas. What about the smell of ginger essential oil that reminds you of old fashioned gingerbread cookies. Christmas spirit essential oil has a nice citrus smell . Clove essential oil is great. It has such a nice smell and is often used in a nice blend to alleviate aches and pains experienced as we age.

Cold weather is fast approaching and things that leave a cozy, marvelously warm feeling a fabulous idea. Young living might fit the bill with some lovely scents, nice makeup, any of their cleaning products and we can not forget the relaxation items, such as bath salts.
