Stress and Your Success
Are you one of many busy women in business, who feel fatigued, pain and tension in muscles, experience inflammation, headaches, anxiety, disordered sleep, feelings of overwhelm, being unable to cope and difficulty thinking and/ or making decisions?
This is so common! Have you considered that you may be experiencing some of the side effects of prolonged stress?
Have you thought about how this situation is affecting not only the success of your business but also your quality of life?
In a state of prolonged stress, your body’s stress responses do not switch off, leaving you feeling unwell physically, mentally and emotionally.
This takes away from your ability to function at your best and maintain the energy and vitality needed to succeed in your business and enjoy life.
Over time this continual wear and tear on your body can contribute to the diseases of modern life such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and even some degenerate diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s’.
It’s time to STOP and smell the coffee; at least take a break and savour the aroma and taste of your coffee as you decide to take some inspired action to prioritise stress management as a necessary daily activity. After all, you would not choose to put off monitoring your sales, your budget, customer service, marketing and so on!
How Aromatherapy Relieves Stress
After an aromatherapy treatment you feel the stress and tension melt from your body, pain and inflammation is reduced, you regain focus and clarity and experience an increase in energy and vitality.
The combination of the aroma of the essential oils and the techniques used in aromatherapy can calm the nervous system, balance the endocrine system and stimulate the immune system, allowing your stress responses to switch off so that you can deeply recover.
Research and indeed my own experience in clinic shows that essential oils can change mood, behaviour and motivation.
To keep your stress levels under control, you can use some simple and effective aromatic self-care techniques daily and incorporate regular aromatherapy massage into your monthly routine.
