Stress, chaos, busy, kids screaming, husbands arguing, work piling up, chaos everywhere, bad mood, winter blues, off day, sad, anxious, need to just chill, tense, being pulled in a million directions, mood swings, “that time fo the month”, new things, new people, crowds, …. Anyone relate to any of these?! If you’re living in the NOW, in reality… everyone should be checking at least one of these things off.
I had an “off morning” yesterday. I found myself losing my temper with my kids & my hubby. My neck & shoulders were all tense. I was blaming others. I was miserable. I was tired. I was moving through my morning based on other peoples agendas, not my own (hello social media & email). I’m sharing because its reality. I’m sharing because when you catch yourself (or someone else calls you out) on this, you can shift it!
I’ve been really paying attention to me lately & when I’m living my day based on my choice & values. Or if I’m going about my day according to what other people want from me or what I think they want. Or if I’m reacting (negatively) to someone, something. By paying attention to these things (tense shoulders, headache, shrink back, lose my temper, flushed face…) I can take a minute & shift my thoughts, shift my mood, shift my intention, shift my day.
SO - how the heck does that work? The simple answer… what can you do for 3 min that makes you smile & relax? You may need more time, but what simple thing(s) can you do to increase your “happy”, to “get you back on track to your path”?
For me it’s 3 things:
SWEAT IT OUT
ESSENTIAL OILS … (grounding blend & wild orange in particular)
This is what it looks like …. I step away as soon as I can from everyone! I turn the music up (somthing I can sing to - horribly or dance too!).
I take a drop of Balance & Wild Orange Essential Oils into my hands, rub my hands together, & just breathe it in! Then I rub the rest or add a another drop to my pulse points.
I fit in a workout ASAP or at least run the stairs in my house!
YOUR TURN … what things can shift your mood quick?
