I combat anxiety with Yoga, a variety of essential oils and a lot of prayer. Yes, I can combine all three and it is fine. lol. Yoga helps me to relax and tone. Essential oils help with a variety of things and Prayer because I believe. I love the balance and although I still have Anxiety, I know it is my own mind that deceives and tricks me into thinking the thoughts I have. I guess if I had experienced it since Childhood maybe I could do better but it only started about 5 years ago? From full blown Panic attacks to Anxiety with occasional panic attacks. So, I just do my thing and try to work through it. I love life but I hate Anxiety and Panic but it is a part of what I battle now so I use my Armor. Hugs and have a great day/night fellow bloggers/writers! I added one of my very own photos to share for a bit of happiness it brings to me and hopefully to you!
It has just been tough. Due to immunity issues I am still home bound for now. I have been doing Yoga, Prayer, meditation, essential oils, and just about anything to keep me off this stupid anxiety but it is really hard. Then, as usual, I over think things a 1,000 to a million times. haha. I am doing okay but just honestly, a tough one but I am still counting my blessings as I battle my mind.
With everything going on, I find my anxiety level is hard to manage at times even with Yoga, prayer and trying to listen to Calming Nature sounds. But I have started using a couple of new essential Oils along with a formula I made to help with pain, etc. I take frankincense and a few drops of Lavender and put it in a small container with about a 1/4 of a cup of liquid Coconut oil. I rub that on my lungs, sternum and back. (It does not take much at all) and it helps to calm and relax. I combine my methods and just wanted to share with anyone who might need that tip. Have a great day/night fellow bloggers and writers!
Well, I am trying the Frankincense oil mixed with a bit of Coconut soft oil on my stomach and Lavender by my earlobe for Anxiety. I love the other Oils I have used and they do work so well. I am hoping this will help. The recipe I made from Oils for my headache has really helped. I should have used that days ago when the headache started. So best wishes on this working and if it does I will try and let my fellow anxiety fellow peeps know! 🙂
I am not a real believer or I wasn’t in all of the “all natural” things you can use to get healthy and I also hate prescribed meds unless I have to take them. But then, after much prodding from a sister, I stepped into the Essential oil world a few years ago. It has been a game changer to say the least. There are so many things I have replaced even over the counter things with. I make my own pain relieving cream for back pain and body pain. I make my own for breathing and now I am trying out oils for relaxing and to help digestive. I am not saying anything is a cure all but they work as good as what I have bought over the counter and even some prescribed meds. So, just wanted to share this with all of you! Have a great one!
I always write about the things that help me with anxiety and I use them or do them at the times when I need them. Another benefit I have found has been essential oils. I use them quite often when I need relaxation. Many people use them from the bottle but I prefer to make a lotion of coconut oil that I melt and then add my essential oil. I melt the coconut oil and add my drops and stir. Then I freeze it back into a solid state and keep it in my bedroom. I use Lavender, Eucalyptus ( a blend of those two for calm) and there are many more than help to calm and relax. Or use them in your bath. Either way, I love them also and I find them very helpful. Have a great one everyone!:)
Cinnamon oil, Eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, lemon or lemongrass oil. Lavender & of course clove oil. Try them in a mix of scents you like by mixing in a bottle three parts water (small bottle) a tsp. or less of Vodka, a few drops of your favorite oils (listed above) and if you do not like the smell just try and do your best to deal with it because they kill off these viruses. You do not get the chemicals in these other room sprays and I am sick right now so I am going to make up some sprays I have not used in months. I use diffusers but not the sprays like I should. Give it a shot. It cannot hurt.
