Simple Tools to Help with Happiness in Tough Situations
Essential Oils, River Stones and a Quiet Space
Happiness is just a breath away. With a strong self awareness a simple deep breath is very powerful. It can help us center ourselves quickly and nearly effortlessly. It’s so simple, but so hard to remember to do when we are nervous, afraid or stressed out. Do you freeze, become overly defensive, or panicked in situations that are uncomfortable or hurtful? In these moments we only have ourselves to tackle the situation. The following simple daily practice with essential oils, river stones and quietness can help you to remember to be at ease, strong and confident in uncomfortable situations.
Being at ease, calm, confident and strong comes from an inner knowing that nothing can be so difficult that it cannot be solved in an amicable, loving, and intelligent, non-aggressive manner. When you are happy, love your life and love yourself, you will be more able to transform fear, nervousness, and frustration into intelligent ways of dealing with the situation, immediately in the moment when it happens. The exercise below can help. When you are happy, you can handle anything in life better. Make it a habit to breath away mind chatter, and inhale calmness and happiness, so you can feel strong and empowered to not only tackle situations but also to make the best out them.
- Prepare a foot bath in a quiet place in your home
- Add two river stones
- Add one drop of essential oil (see below)
- Soak your feet and breath evenly for 15 minutes letting your thoughts wander, not thinking about your thoughts.
- Just breath and listen to the sounds of your home
Do this practice daily until you notice that uncomfortable situations are no longer creating inner turmoil.
So, now what essential oils should you choose for your foot bath? That is a bit trickier. But here are a few suggestions.
Lavender is always good to have on hand. It is best to use when you feel nervous and have a slight headache.
Bergamot is always uplifting. Use when you are unfocused, irritated, mentally and emotionally exhausted.
Cedar Wood is a beautiful oil to have on hand to become more grounded and present. Use it when you feel physically worn out, feel afraid and insecure.
These are just a few essential oils that can help you to induce happiness within you through dissipating fear, nervousness, and stress.
