It’s the holidays! And for many people, it’s that time when special anxiety sets in. Everyone and the media are talking about joy and laughter but there is commercialization providing a good dose of enticement to over spend or spend just for the sake of spending. There is an ad that would have you believe that band aids make great fun stocking stuffers for kids. Do they? Often times, loved ones are missed which opens up the wound of grief. Frustration, low morale or even anger can sit dangerously close to the surface– because you worry about the dinner or presents being “right” or you even forgot to get someone a present or you didn’t have enough money and time or you’re obligated to be around someone you’d rather not be around or the dog pulled down the Christmas tree or you’re really tired. You secretly would just like to order Chinese take-out for once. Or even keep things super casual and simple. But wouldn’t that be breaking some unspoken law? Although you love your family and friends and it’s great to see them, maybe you would also somehow greatly appreciate having a little peace and quiet to contemplate the true meaning of Christmas for a change and what you desire for the coming year. Calmly. How about being able to put your feet up and relax because you have to get up early to go to work the next day but you can’t bring yourself to set limits so that you do have some down time in the evening. Well, you can’t always get what you want. Whatever the source of anxiety, some MedEssential Oil blends can help you get through it all, quite pleasantly. Take a look:
