Beep Beep Beep. There goes that alarm clock again. Can it possibly be morning already? It seems like you just went to bed! After the mad rush to shower, dress and get to work, you finally make it to your desk and you feel yourself start to nod off again. So you down your first cup of coffee, and maybe then another. Two hours later, the initial caffeine rush starts wearing off and you reach for another cup. By the time mid-afternoon rolls around, you’re ready to crawl under your desk and take a nap. Does this sound like you?
How do you keep yourself from falling asleep at work? Do you rely on coffee, sodas or energy drinks to get by? Have you even resorted to popping pills and supplements? Even if you’re getting a good night’s sleep, sometimes you’re just so stretched to the limit that your energy fails. Not only are you under deadlines at work, but there’s traffic to deal with, dinner to cook, lunches to pack, baseball practice and dance practice, grocery lists, laundry… the list never seems to end.
Where did the energy go?
Just about anyone can agree that our lives are entirely too busy nowadays. However, you can’t just stop living. The groceries still need to be bought, the house still needs to be cleaned and you still have to earn a living. Aside from inventing a way to add more hours to the day, how can you keep your energy levels up without relying on artificial ingredients? Mother Nature just might have what you’re looking for.
Essential Oils are distilled from the leaves, stems, roots and flowers of certain therapeutic plants and were discovered by the ancient Egyptians. Different plants have different properties, but here are four of the best essential oils to help you feel more energized and ready to take on the day: Lemon Oil, Orange Oil, Lime Oil and Grapefruit Oil. It’s not surprising that citrus scents are at the top of the list when it comes to aromas that make you feel pepped up. Just imagine how refreshing it is to drink a cold glass of lemonade or orange juice, or bite into a fresh grapefruit or piece of key lime pie. The effect those zesty flavors have on your mouth is the same effect they have on your mood and energy.
Since essential oils are highly concentrated and irritate skin upon direct contact, the best method for use is to use a diffuser. BalticEssentials.com has a collection of essential oil diffuser pendants that look just like an ordinary piece of jewelry; however, each pendant comes with a pad ready to receive a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Just insert the pad into the pendant and there you have it – natural instant energy on the go!
