Day 5 – Wellness Bootcamp While at Home

2020_06 WBH Day 5_PinDuring this time of uncertainty and change, we have the opportunity to build and practice our skills at managing stress! In our experience, we don’t just naturally get better at managing stress as we get older — it requires intention and practice!

Providentially, we have an amazing tool to help us manage stress: Stress Away essential oil blend. It’s aptly named.

  1. Put Stress Away in your pocket, set a timer, and do an “Oil Intervention” every waking hour!
  2. Practice interrupting negative thought patterns and introducing a positive thought. Focusing on your breath is a strategy to do that.

While using your Stress Away essential oil blend, you can say an affirmation or meditate on a scripture verse!

  • Affirmation: I breathe out stress and breathe in peace [or light or love...]. My mind focuses on positive thoughts with grace and ease. I let go of worried thoughts and contemplate positive possibilities!
  • Scripture: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” ~ Psalm 51:10 (ESV)

I like to diffuse Stress Away by itself — put 6-8 drops in one of the ultrasonic diffusers!
