It is the time of the year where colder weather and more stress towards the holidays pile up. That is always the time where I get my Essential Oils Handbook out that I got from a dear friend and start searching and trying different oils out for health benefits or when catching a cold.
I found this one helpful…..Eucalyptus and Sage act as an excellent remedy for coughs, chest congestion, and sinus infections. You can inhale the steam made with Eucalyptus and Sage in boiling water 2x a day.
Brown Rice Tortillas and Oatmeal at Costco are great for people who can’t eat Gluten. Gluten-free choices for autistic children and adults, read more….Autism as well as children and people with celiac disease read more…… Celiac disease. Look up websites for Gluten-free products. Most stores have Gluten-free products, if not online shopping is a way to get the choices. Look also for Gluten-free Shampoos, skin care and toothpaste. Adhesives have also Gluten, this is something people don’t think about it usually.
How about a mini-vacation at home every day? It seems like everybody I spoke to has some sort of stress in life and need some time off, time away, or a chance to “chill out” alone. You can take some time off each and every day, you only need to plan it and make some space in your schedule for it. It is essential for your overall well-being. Asking yourself what you like best in vacation, helps you to find the things you like to see, do and have at home to feel comfortable, happy and relaxed as well.
For me for example I like to see, coming in a hotel is: the nice little touches of having a cute prepared basket prepared with some samples of lotions and shampoos in the bathroom and the towels who are pretty and soft. I like to go swimming in the hotel pool, which is one of the sports I like best to relax. I love walking and exploring the new area and then go shopping for some kind of small cute things. Looking for gifts for my friends to bring home is another favored thing for me to do. I love great parks, gardens, museums or art galleries. In general nature is the best for me to relax, go back to the hotel take a power nap and get ready for a good dinner with nice ambiance and a good conversation with a great friend.
You can make it a habit to schedule some of your own favored things to see and do in your own home and neighborhood. Sometimes we need to be creative and resourceful to make our daily life more fun, relaxed and exciting . The tourist offices I found, is a good way to get inspired to find new nice places to see and go in your own backyard…..try something new, explore and experiment what you like best to see, do and have and translate it on a smaller scale to live your own mini-vacation daily.
I love my teas during the colder weather. There are so many great tastes and they have all kind of health benefits! Make it a habit to take a tea break! I admire this tradition in England about the Afternoon Tea. Which is your favorite tea?
