Stress Away with Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy Philippines- According to studies, it is believed that the leading cause of  diseases and illnesses by people can be traced back to stress. Those who have experienced much with it has a higher risk of getting sick of chronic health conditions. And it is obvious because it makes us really out of balance and it can affect a lot of areas in our life. Just like nowadays, people turn to Aromatherapy to at least reduce stress.

The three top stressors of our modern time are: Health, Money and Work

When we have poor health, it will be hard for us to function with the normal routines that we do.
Being sick is really annoying and the medication through our prescriptions could pile up our expenses. Of course, it will also relate to money. It can definitely consume our savings and we might not be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We will be overthinking on keeping ourselves to catch up with being healthy.

Another thing that could be a source of our stress is our job. The office politics, our fellow co-workers, the competition, the busy traffic when going to work, project deadlines, sales target, closing deals with prospective clients,  a lot of several factors interlinked with our day-to-day living and working can pull us down.

However, do note that there is something that we call a "Positive Stress". This happens when we try to overwork because we enjoy doing our job. We have so much drive and  it gives us much energy. Well, this is something we don't need essential oils.

Now there is also what we call "Normal Stress" in which our bodies react to what it is supposed to do in response to a particular situation. Like when we have to finish a project nearing its deadline.  Because of stress, we tend to forget to relax or take a break for food or we tend to move and think faster.

The worse type of stress is called "Distress" where it consumes our energy beyond its normal capacity and it has become a daily pressure on us, then it leads to some serious chronic conditions already. So this is the time that we can actually tap unto Aromatherapy.
