5 Ways to Enhance Your Life

Sometimes the mind likes to create the belief that life is boring. When we get stuck in the mind, which is task oriented and remembers facts, yes, life can be boring.

The mind likes to create a whole storyline of what life should be like...

For some people, it kind of goes like this:

"I go to work from 9-5 from Monday-Friday, I do my work that I'm assigned during these days. On the weekend I have chores to do: clean, grocery shop, cook, children events, ect."

Where is the fun? The relaxation? The laughter? Where is the YOU time?

I see that most of us get caught up in giving and doing everything for everyone except ourselves, and this cycle depletes us of having time and energy to explore and see the fun, beauty, and peace life has to offer! Enjoying life is really simple. It's just up to us to make the choice to create these experiences of fun, peace, and relaxation. Once we've made the decision, then we can truly apply and feel the benefits of these practices listed below. Remember, it's the little things in life that make life special.

5 Ways to Enhance and Recharge Your Life:

1. Take a Bath with Epson salt and 1-3 drops of your favorite essential oils.

Studies have shown that baths reduce stress because warm water increases the levels of serotonin (the happy chemical) thus allowing one to let go, feel nurtured and relaxed. To deepen the relaxation vibes of this treat you can add lavender, sweet orange, ylang ylang, or geranium. Be mindful to only add 1-3 drops, essential oils are very potent. (A highly reputable brand and one I personally love, is doterra)

Also, adding Epson salt relieves body pains and aches because it's high magnesium. Magnesium is one vitamin, along with potassium, that reduces muscle cramping. Essential oils that reduce body pains are wintergreen, lemon grass, rosemary, or grapefruit.

After a not so easy day at work this act of love can be your medicine.

2. Sit back and relax: Do a guided meditation
