Dreading the Holidays? Here Are Some Tips to Help You Enjoy Them & Recover!

Being around family isn’t easy. Some people love it, some people hate it and others just do it because they’re supposed to. If it’s a torture to you, we want to give you an idea for recovering from it that you’ll love. And if you’d like to enjoy it, we’ve got some tips to share there too.

Have a better holiday than the years before and come out feeling good about it. Here’s how:

Remember the truth: This time is temporary and this is your family. You didn’t choose them, but here they are. Love the good inside them and don’t waste your time arguing. You’re not likely to change anyone’s opinions so don’t bother. If they need to think or act differently that’s their own growth to go through. They’ll grow much faster if you sit back and love them.

Simple Conversation: Avoid talking about major issues, family grudges, politics and personal choices. Talk about simple things like music, the books you’re reading, family vacations or the latest movies. And if the complex topics arise, refer to the last point. Don’t waste your time trying to prove something to anyone. It’s always a dead end or painful experience.

Find Kindness: Look for ways to be kind. Compliment people. Listen carefully and attentively to the other person. (If you’re not bothering to argue or convince them of anything, this should be easy to do, and good practice for your communication skills!) Take it further and look for opportunities to tell people why you appreciate them and what you admire about them. This is sure to up-level the mood in the air.

Recover: It’s no easy task handling family. When you’re done, you want to go home, fall on the couch and put your feet up. So do it. But upgrade the experience. All that effort and conversation (and avoiding arguments) can make you tense and tired. So make sure you have a couple bottles of our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, because this will calm your muscles, nerves and mood down so fast. Run a hot shower and spritz a couple sprays into the steam. Get in and just stand there. Breathe. Aromatherapy at this level will work wonders for you. And when you’re done – relax. Put on a movie, read a book or go to bed. You’ve done well.

The holidays are a perfect time for us to be better people. It’s not easy and definitely takes practice, but you can do it. And when you’re done exercising this muscle, you get sweet relief.

From all of us at Eurospa Aromatics, have a beautiful holiday.

Find Relief from Anxiety at Home Fast and Naturally!

Find Relief from Anxiety at Home Fast and Naturally!

Do You Experience Panic Attacks? Find Relief from Anxiety at Home Fast and Naturally!Anxiety is a problem that plagues a majority of the population but that doesn’t mean it should stay.
Prescription medications can have damaging side affects and aren’t always effective.  What you need are a few easy ways to find relief from your anxiety at home fast and naturally.  You deserve it.

Worst Case Scenario
Many times we get anxious because we are seeing a dramatized version of reality.  We fear the worst. So imagine the worst case scenario, in all of it’s fright and think of what you would do. It’s likely that in the worst realistic scenario, you are still fed, still have a place to sleep (even if it’s a friend’s couch) and even the friend who let you use it.  This leads me to the next point…

Yes, this word is thrown around like a trend, but the truth is, it’s vital.  Be thankful for those friends that are there for you no matter what, even if you can think of just one. Be thankful for every bite of food, for every smile you encounter, for every breath you take effortlessly….  Rest in that gratitude and then DO something with it.

Get Activated
You’ve imagined the worst, found gratitude for what really is, and now it’s time to be activated. Breathe deeply.  Get the oxygen flowing to all corners of your brain; that’s when it functions the best. Get outside and touch nature. Breathe deep.  Run. Stretch. Dance. Laugh. Find what feels good and do LOTS of it.

Feel Good
Do things that make you feel good. It’s not narcissistic and selfish; it’s pure self love. How can you give to others if you are empty? Pamper yourself.  Of course, we recommend our Eucalyptus Oil Shower Mist for a day at the spa, or just for a relaxation night at home.  Turn off the TV and social media and just rest.  Find a book.  Journal.  Draw. Close your eyes and see all the beauty unfolding in your life.

Pass It On
The best way to keep your newly re-activated positive mood is to pass it on to others. This time, you be the one to share a smile or encouraging word. The moment you feel better, be contagious about it! You’ll be amazed to see how much your own sense of peace grows and gets stronger!

Your inner health is as important as your outer health.  At Eurospa, we are committed to quality in our products that allow you the possibility for both. So, today, let the stress go and take care of yourself. You matter. That’s why we are here!
