Have you ever compromised your wellbeing for someone or something else, such as a family member or job? Have you ever juggled so many tasks at once that you found yourself unable to complete them? Did these activities lead to irritability or even physical pain?
This is called “bad stress”. This type of stress is detrimental. Long-term stress has a significant impact on your mental and physical health, as well as your brain make up. However, self-care can be the best preventative medicine in some cases. A small investment in yourself now saves a great deal of time and effort correcting issues later in life. Did you know that simply having a peace of mind significantly impacts your overall health? Relaxation helps to prevent the risk of chronic stress and protects you from damaging your health in the long run.
Some of the benefits of de-stressing include:
- Improved physical and mental health
- Decreased anger and irritability
- Improved memory, focus, and other brain functions
- Increased energy
Some ways of de-stressing include:
- Breathing deeply
- Getting enough sleep
- Listening to music
- Being creative
Deep breathing relieves body tension and gives you extra oxygen. Getting enough sleep boosts your mood and sharpens your mind. Listening to music lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and decreases levels of stress hormones. Being creative is proven to lessen anxiety and relieve tension in the body.
If you find yourself struggling with these activities, feel free to browse my Serenity Shop or bath products in my Etsy store (https://www.etsy.com/shop/aromareveal) where I have handmade soaps and bath bombs. I also offer a four-piece skincare set made from natural products. Each of my products are created to encourage inner peace and to unveil your serenity.
Unveiling your serenity is at the heart of Aroma Reveal, and I’d like to explain why it is so essential to our wellbeing.
Serenity is often hidden behind the stress and worries of everyday life. However, it is a valuable component that manages stress levels and is a crucial part of keeping yourself whole. Therefore, we must make it necessary to consider serenity a top priority. Though we may not always have the time to do so, it is important to reduce stress factors whenever possible. We should all be seeking a state of serenity throughout each day.
Some reasons to strive for serenity include:
- Normalized blood pressure.
- Mental wellbeing.
- Decelerated aging.
- Decreased risk for heart disease.
- Decreased depression and anxiety.
Serenity is the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. It is my goal to alleviate the feelings of stress, depression, and anxiety.
For my boxes, I carefully choose items that will reduce stress and bring a sense of calmness and peace, avoiding the unnecessary state of emotional strain, ensuring that you take full advantage of the above benefits.
My monthly boxes are centered around aromas due to the strong correlation between aromatherapy and serenity. My curated self-care boxes are intended as an escape from day-to-day stressors to encourage you to unveil your serenity.
We may recognize self-care as a trend taking over social media. We often see lovely photos of beautifully drawn baths and face mask selfies, but do we really understand the importance and true acts of self-care?
In honor of our first post, we would like to offer you a brief explanation of the practice and benefits of self-care. It is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve your health. It is also an active role in protecting your well-being and happiness. Both are essential to our overall longevity and productivity. Some of the effects of self-care include productivity, a strengthened immune system, as well as an increase in energy and happiness. These are only some of the wonderful benefits that result from self-care.
Though these benefits sound ideal, we often worry that we do not have the time or budget for such activities. However, it does not have to be expensive or time consuming. Most importantly, do not treat self-care as a luxury or a reward, but rather as an essential.
Self-care practices are quite budget-friendly and efficient. Reading, journaling and aromatherapy, for example, are some popular options. These options are inexpensive and can be easily and efficiently used with items you already own. Simply taking fifteen minutes to read a blog can destress your brain and encourage positive thinking. With journaling, you can write down your thoughts and feelings for the day and get everything out of your head to ease your mind. With aromatherapy, you simply focus on scents to stimulate your mind and body. In fact, aromatherapy is one of the most therapeutic practices to partake in, and it acts as the inspiration for our subscription boxes.
Aroma Reveal is centered around your serenity and peace. Each subscription box is carefully curated, inspired by aromatherapy and skincare. Aroma Reveal is our way of sharing our passion for scents and beauty and our care for your well-being.
