After a few weeks of highs, looking forward to our team, the Philadelphia Eagles, bringing home the Lombardi trophy, it’s easy to find yourself in a slump following all of the excitement. I often find that after looking forward to something for so long, enjoying the fun ride along the way, there is this period of feeling down immediately following. Do you guys ever feel like that?
Fear not, I have a solution to keeping spirits up and continuing to ride that wave of excitement to the next big thing! How, you ask…yep, you guessed it-OILS! My go-to when I’m not feeling my happiest is geranium. They don’t call it the great balancer for nothing! Geranium is known to balance hormones. When something major happens (like your team winning the super bowl!) your endorphins sky rocket. After the excitement wears off it’s natural to feel a bit off balance. Applying a few drops of geranium on your wrist or behind your ears can instantly uplift mimicking that feeling of sheer bliss that is experienced in life’s greatest events. Smelling it’s scent can signal the brain’s limbic system to release chemicals to recreate positive emotions and make you happy!
My family is die hard when it comes to the eagles-we bleed green! Many of us waited a lifetime for a championship win. That moment finally came and we literally could not be happier. All across the region you could feel the joy people had during this time. It was palpable. It’s amazing a football team could evoke such positivity in a community especially considering all else going on in the world today.
The natural high that accompanies such events is amazing. When that feeling wears off, don’t forget there are ways to naturally keep that feeling alive. In addition to essential oils, there are many ways to accomplish this. The day after the Eagles parade of champions, I have to admit, I was feeling a little down. I was exhausted from the week’s events-from the days leading up to the big game, high hopes held for an Eagles victory to the big game itself, culminating with a massive celebration in the city of brotherly love to honor our team, newly crowned WORLD CHAMPIONS and family life and working in between. I knew I had to do something in order to pick myself up. I had plans to travel south to spend time with my mother in law who had been away for weeks and just returned home with a new puppy. While the thought of traveling after a long week and a long work week ahead felt daunting, I knew it was as what I needed. I packed up the car and the kids early Saturday morning and headed to the beach and I am so happy I did! Even in the wintertime, there is something magical about being by the ocean. A quick walk on the beach, breathing in that moist salty air, hearing the ocean waves crashing on the shore, I felt happy. That, coupled with the ones I love (and puppy kisses!) no better way to keep that winning feeling going.
If you are ever feeling low, post big event or otherwise, all you need is a little fresh air, family, and oils!! That’s love!
