Diffuse The Stress Away & Keep The Sharpness Close
Under any circumstance, your diffuser will always be your best friend. Essential oils like peppermint, lavender, and rosemary are incredible for stimulating the brain by increasing your ability to be attentive and sharp when handling multiple tasks at a time or solving complex problems. At the start of your day, place up to ten drops of pure essential oils - or your choice of essential oil blends - inside your diffuser, and let it run for about two hours intermittently as you go about your day. Working from home suddenly got a lot better, didn’t it?
Whenever you feel like your focus and concentration levels are fading away, don’t be afraid to take a small, mindful break. Take ten minutes to practice some breathing exercises to decrease your stress levels, recharge your energy, and boost your brainpower. Place no more than one drop of rosemary essential oil at the center of your palm, and rub your hands together. Make a cupping gesture over your nose and inhale deeply three times in a row. Repeat as necessary!
Stimulating the Senses
Working from home doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some self-care while you’re at it. Roll on essential oil perfumes that contain rosemary, cedarwood, peppermint, and frankincense like Mental Clarity and Focus Driver which are packed with memory-enhancing essential oils that help create a crip sense of alertness and concentration. Feel free to apply some perfume as many times as you wish throughout your day; especially when you feel like you need an extra boost!
