Combat Stress and Winter Blahs, Recipes for Health


Relaxation is as fundamental for good health as the food you eat. It is important not to neglect relaxation, regardless of how busy you are.

Attitude and emotion have a significant influence on our health. We live in a stressed out world—just driving to work or reading the newspaper can cause stress. And although we cannot always control what causes us stress, we can control how we deal with stress.

Be proactive. Reacting to stress typically causes more stress. Negative thoughts and worry accumulate in the body, which can lead to aches and pains, dysfunction, and premature aging. What to do? Let go of stress. Aromatherapy is an easy-to-use, at-home technique for stress relief. A few moments of daily Me Time will help you to be your best at all other times.
