Right now many of us are feeling the pressure of how our putting others first mindsets have taken our minds into places of mental overwhelm and bodies into physical exhaustion. Many of us are angry, frustrated, confused, and just done. We need a break or we will break.
Even though the self care practice I have put together is not the idea two week vacation many of us are craving right now, it is a way to break free from the mental and emotional workload we continue to place on ourselves.
Right now, as you read through this, practice it, give yourself a break to come out of the noise of overwhelm and into the stillness you deserve.
Incorporating doTERRA essential oils into my self care routine has elevated and personalized my sense of wellbeing. I recommend trying doTERRA essential oils and experiencing the natural benefits they offer those looking to build practices and routines of self care and wellbeing.
