It's time to reach for the oils. Repetitive thoughts can be very stressful: when the mind cannot rest, the body cannot rest. And not do we just lose sleep, but it can get blown into a full vicious cycle of more thoughts, less rest, culminating into physical issues. Pretty crazy.
One of the worst types of repetitive thoughts is: I should have said that. Have you experienced times when someone upsets or angers you, and hours later you wonder why you didn't say what you now realise you should have said. And what you think you should have said goes round and round in your head - because there is now no opportunity for you to get them off your chest, at that person? And the worse thing? The other person is totally oblivious, and going about her or his merry way. Aargghhs.
Don't Let the Dogs Get You Down
So, instead of allowing your brain to burn you out on these useless repetitive thoughts, get the Oils out and get yourself up! Use these Essential Oil blends in an Aromatherapy Inhaler or dilute in a Roller Bottle and apply away!
