TAKING A STEP BACK TO DECOMPRESS
We all have our busy seasons in life, whether that revolves around sports, school, holidays or work. When your schedule is so crammed, the constant busyness can leave us feeling depleted of energy left to do anything else. This is not only taxing on our mental health, but it can leak into our physical health as well if left unchecked.
SIGNS OF BURNOUT
Experiencing burnout can present itself a few different ways. Many people feel as if they have little to no motivation left, even to accomplish the smallest of tasks, like doing the dishes or taking out the trash for example. Another symptom of burnout is feeling emotionally overwhelmed and experiencing heightened levels of anxiety. Many people suffering from burnout will also find themselves battling with insomnia and have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. With so much on your plate, you might also feel exhausted all the time, no matter how much sleep you get, and you may find that you’re easily triggered by miniscule things. It’s important to notice the signs of burnout in yourself, and see it as a red flag that it’s time to pull back from other things to pour some attention back into yourself. Running yourself ragged is not a sustainable way to live your daily life, and you deserve to take a breather when needed.
SKINCARE AND WELLNESS TECHNIQUES TO TRY AT HOME
An easy way to help yourself feel better when you’re experiencing burnout is adding some simple self-care practices to your daily routine. Sometimes I get out of the habit of my evening skincare regimen. When I compare how I felt those weeks versus when I do my evening skincare regularly, I notice the simple act of taking care of my skin has a relaxing benefit on top of improving my skin quality. Try adding a little of the RENEW nighttime face oil to your evening skincare regimen, and see how you look and feel afterwards. The lavender in it helps calm the mind, and the anti-inflammatory properties in the lavender help soothe the skin.
MASSAGE AND BODY OIL BENEFITS
With so much stress on my plate last month, I found myself seeing the signs of burnout, and I took this as a sign to take a break for a day to melt away some of that anxiety and tension that had been building up in my body. I booked an appointment for a much-needed massage and brought my reHEMP body oil with me for some extra relaxation.
The REJUVENATE body oil contains 2000mg of CO2-extracted broad spectrum hemp, which helps regulate your skin’s inflammatory response, while the lavender and rosemary provide aromatherapy and improve circulation. As an added bonus, it also has organic reishi which not only provides powerful hydration, it also works against premature aging in the skin.
In honor of International Women’s Day this month, I chose to book the massage with another woman-owned small business owner, Daniela with Bliss Om Ayurveda and Wellness. I soon as I walked into her space at Casa Prana, I instantly began to feel more relaxed. She uses a popular ayurvedic treatment known as an abhyanga massage, which promotes wellness and balance, stress relief and healthy skin. She incorporated some Reiki at the end and had several large crystals under the table representing the different chakras. Rose Quartz is a great stone to use to connect with your heart chakra. For more info on how to get a free Rose Quartz, see below.
