Essential oils are extremely popular these days. There is an oil available for just about every health issue out there. Many people are skeptical of what these oils can do. For the last several years, I have come to realize that medication can help in one area but harm another. Did you ever watch a commercial for medication and afterwards all the possible side effects are identified? The list goes on and on. I will do whatever I can to avoid taking medication (because of side effects and also addiction). Of course, any serious health issue must be addressed immediately by a medical professional. I am now learning about pure and natural essential oils, and I’ve started using them. I don’t know if it’s me and my belief in them (placebo effect) or if they really do work. I guess it’s all what you believe. I can honestly say, I believe they really do work for me. A few minor issues I’ve been experiencing lately have actually improved. I must say, I am feeling pretty good right now! I am always looking for natural ways to live a healthy lifestyle. Meditation (#1), exercise (walking for me), yoga (men can do this too :), a positive mindset, repeating affirmations, a healthy diet, lots of water and good rest, and giving up coffee, tea, and soda have all greatly improved my health, physically and mentally.
Life is like a puzzle. When all the pieces come together and everything makes sense, you will finally learn personal truth. There are only a few key pieces to the puzzle, but they are quite significant and life-changing. The most important piece to the puzzle is a positive mental attitude. This is what you believe about yourself, others, and life. Your life will be so much better when you keep your thoughts on the positive side. Although your beliefs, thoughts, and emotions impact your health and physical being tremendously, the other critical pieces are: a healthy diet, exercise, and sleep. What goes into the body should be nourishing and nutritious to keep the body functioning. You must move your body around to keep the positive energy flowing and of course rest to reenergize. The last piece to the puzzle is mindful meditation. Meditation helps you to quiet your mind, deal with your thoughts, and to become more “aware” of your inner most being. Meditation connects your inner power with the Creator/universe/God. This is when you listen to receive guidance, clarity, and direction for life.
