Rest is productive. Say it again. Say it out loud. REST IS PRODUCTIVE. The society we live in often tells us otherwise. Do you take time for yourself each day to rest, to be still? Although cliché, the idea that "you can't pour from an empty cup" is completely valid. When we find ourselves in times of high stress, with a lot of activity and commitments, it is very easy to remove rest and replenishment from the to-do list. Remember, this is the time when we need it the most.
- How can you rest? What forms of rest and relaxation feel the best?
- How can you quiet your thoughts?
- Remember a time when you ignored the need for rest and quiet. What was the outcome of not taking care of yourself?
Today's treat is relax room and linen spray. I quite literally use this every night and love it. It is the same essential oil blend as the relax bath products I offer. Not only do I love the smell, but the aromatherapy will help you relax and sleep well.
Give the bottle a shake and spray a few drops in the center of the room or over your pillow case.
