I am in my retirement years and I thought writing this blog would keep me busy but I went back to work in a different career because I feel the same way I did in my youth. I also like being around people and writing a blog doesn’t do that for me at all. Even though I like going to work, some mornings (usually Monday) I wake up listless and tired. When that happens, I have a routine I go through that may help you too.
First, drink a little fruit juice and take a bath or shower using the following essential oils – bergamot, basil, and peppermint. If you take a bath, use 3 drops of each and for a shower, use 1 drop of each on your towel. In the bath, lie back and breath deeply to inhale the revitalizing essential oil fragrance.
Next, do a few stretches – don’t do Billy Blanks’ boot camp. Just stretch each muscle group as well as you can and pay attention to each muscle group. The essential oil bath or shower will help with this because the oils stimulate circulation and also the respiratory, nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. Lastly, eat a breakfast of whole foods. Enjoy your day.
