Stress Relief

Relaxation is just as important as exercise in treating stress and burnout. If you can’t relax, at least take deep slow breaths to slow down your pulse rate. Go outside or open a window, inhale and take in large volumes of air, slowly filling the lungs, and then exhaling slowly. Do this several times at least once a day. Self hypnosis or self-talk is a good way of reaching your subconscious mind and can be used at any time of the day.

Lessen your workload wherever you can, and start and finish work at a specific time. Do not let anything get in the way of this resolve. Your body’s energy system is like the gas tank in your car; if you run out of energy, you start drawing on the “reserve” energy tank. People who have burnout are relying on their reserve energy and they need to coast or at least cruise nice and easy until they can fill up again. People who keep pushing themselves at full speed ahead might run out of energy again before they reach the gas station. You can help yourself cruise through stressful times with the following synergistic blend of relaxation oils.

BURNOUT RELAXATION
SYNERGISTIC BLEND

  • 8 drops sandalwood
  • 5 drops palma rosa
  • 9 drops lemon

Mix the essential oils together in these proportions and use them in one of the room methods or in a relaxing bath. You can also make up a massage oil using 5 drops of the blend in 1 teaspoon of almond oil, or liquid shea oil.
