DAY 1: GOOD MORNING!
Set the tone for your entire day by creating a 1-2 minute ritual to do right when you get out of bed. Keep a bottle of Peppermint and Wild Orange on your bed stand or in your bathroom. Every morning, put a drop of each in your palms, rub them together and inhale 2-3 times.
As you do this, think about something or someone you appreciate or are thankful for or maybe you have an intention that you like to recite to yourself. What if your mornings are a whirlwind trying to get everyone out the door and the whole idea of trying to think of something just seems stressful? I've got you covered - jot down a few things on a piece of paper that always make you smile and keep that next to your oils.
Give it a shot, I'm willing to bet that you’ll feel happy, energized and ready for whatever the day has in store. You might even notice that those things that tend to annoy you or push your buttons might not bother you so much anymore.
