Write in your journal
Keeping a journal is one of the best ways to clear your mind. Feeling stressed? Write down your stresses and worries. Feeling sad? Write it down. Journaling will help you to get many of your negative emotions out. Sometimes, all we really need is to express how we feel in order to find a solution to our concerns.
You can also train your mind to look for the positive by keeping a gratitude journal. Before you go to sleep Sunday night, jot down five things you are grateful for and why. Try to apply this gratitude to your stresses. For example, if you are stressed about cleaning your house before your family comes to town this week, find ways to be grateful for having a safe home or for the chance you have to see family. Being grateful flips your mind into perceiving your stresses as positives instead of fears.
Before you write in your journal, apply 1−3 drops of Gratitude™ essential oil blend behind the ears, over the heart, on your wrists, the back of your neck, and the base of your spine to promote a feeling of peace.
