Stress is something that each of us experiences regularly. Whether due to career, relationships, money, health or another factor, everyone experiences stress. It is important to keep our mental wellbeing in check to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

Stress does not discriminate – it can impact your quality of life regardless of age, culture, race, financial status, education level, or religion.

One simple yet possibly effective natural mood boost is aromatherapy – the therapeutic use of essential oils. 

Essential oils are extracted from plants and contain active components with therapeutic effects. Evidence shows that various types of essential oils have a wide range of health benefits.

In scientific studies, the potential of lavender essential oil for prevention and even treatment of depression and anxiety symptoms was demonstrated. The molecules of essential oils may reach the brain and exert an effect through two distinctive pathways, namely, the olfactory system and the respiratory system.

After inhalation, the molecules of the essential oils would either act directly on the olfactory mucosa or pass into the respiratory tract. These two delivery pathways suggest different underlying mechanisms of action. Different sets of responses would be triggered, such as increased neurogenesis, regulation of hormonal levels, activation of different brain regions, and alteration in blood biochemistry, which would ultimately affect both mood and emotion.

Experience God!

In my opinion, the first and most important thing you can do is experience God’s unconditional love and acceptance. Routinely ask God to remind you of the truth of this verse.

“The Lord your God is with you,

the Mighty Warrior who saves.

He will take great delight in you;

in his love he will no longer rebuke you,

but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Be Active Every Day!
Regular physical activity is a key to health and longevity. Countless studies prove that being active every day not only improves your overall health, but also improves your resilience to stress. Regular physical activity improves your ability to adapt to and cope with life’s stressful moments. Physical activity reduces stress hormone levels while simultaneously stimulating the production of feel good chemicals called endorphins. The great thing is that physical activity doesn’t have to be in a gym. You can get the recommended 150 minutes of moderate activity per week through brisk walks, working in the garden, playing with your kids, or many other ways.

Permit Yourself to Unplug!

Thanks to mobile phones, the days of leaving work or school behind once you leave the building are over. Adults and teens are constantly connected to peers and colleagues, driven to keep tabs on friendships and social networking news, as well as respond to work messages. However, scientists warn that compulsively checking your smartphone may not be so smart and contributes to a rise in stress levels. Research has even shown that checking your email less frequently—three times daily instead of whenever you want—can reduce stress levels. Being “always on” may seem more productive initially, but it increases your stress and eventually causes a reduction in your performance.

Practicing digital discretion can help reduce your stress levels. Instead of immediately reaching for your phone when you wake up, spend your first waking hours reading a devotional, in prayer, or exercising. Consider establishing do not disturb times so you can disconnect from the constant pressure of your smartphone’s endless notifications. Live in the moment and engage in conversation with the actual people around you. By doing so, you may find you are less irritable and happier.

Get More Sleep!
Sleep is a vital, often neglected, part of your overall health. During sleep, your brain commits new information to memory, muscle growth and tissue repairs occur, hormones are created, and metabolism balanced. Despite these important functions that occur during sleep, the average person is sleeping less today partly because of stress levels and light from devices. Science proves that we need restful sleep to better manage stress. While sleeping requirements vary from person to person, most healthy adults need between seven and nine hours per night. Children and teens need more. Diffuse your favorite calming essential oil before and during sleep to help establish a restful environment. Some to consider include Serenity, Adaptiv, and Lavender. The Adaptiv system is my #1 go-to!
