It’s been a couple days since we moved the clocks back 1 hour for the end of daylight savings time. That extra hour of sleep was great on Saturday night going into Sunday – but how’s it going now a few days later?
How are your body, mind and mood dealing with less light each day? There is something about the sun going down at 5:30 makes me sleepy by 7. I would love to end my day at 7, but that’s not going to happen!
So what’s my solution?
This is another time that a well chosen Aromatherapy Candle can help you out. Aromatherapy works by using your sense of smell to affect your mind to stimulate the body to produce certain chemicals and hormones. It can be very effective and won’t give you that nervous feeling from using too much caffeine.
While there are many scents to choose from and some differences of opinion – here are some of the more popular choices.
- Amber – Increased Mental Focus, Concentration and Creativity
- Basil – Increases Energy and Concentration, Helps Fight Fatigue
- Eucalyptus – Provides Energy and Helps Fight the Common Cold, Sinus and Headaches
- Peppermint – Increases Energy and Concentration with Lower Stress
So here’s to some extra energy and hopes you don’t spend the entire winter hibernating. And on the bright side – only 124 days until daylight savings time returns.
