How are you feeling at the moment? Good or rather all over the place and at the same time too much in your head?
Or maybe easily distracted and weirdly restless?
I sense that we all might feel less focused and a bit more “off center” than usual – and that we have a strong need for grounding energy right now. It’s actually no wonder when we look at the worldwide happenings and the season we’re in! That’s why I’m sharing five strategies from my daily life that have really helped me lately.

Focus on only a couple of things a day
Don’t do all at once. This is another of my “secrets” that really helps me to be productive in a mindful, effective way, that helps me feel more achieved at the end of the day as well as stay focused throughout the day.

Plus: If you like a lovely smell to accompany your practice, that also helps you calm down, ground and soothe your nervous system, try these essential oils:
I find diffusing the oils is an easy way to soak in the goodness. Please note: We all perceive and react to essential oils differently. Go with the smells that speak to you, and if you already have an oil that helps you ground and calm your mind, use that one.
