Did you know that the first week of every August is “National Simplify Your Life Week?” It’s a time for you to focus on the areas in your life that could use a little decluttering mentally and physically.
However, this practice of removing clutter from your life can be done at any time - not just August. Between arranging more time for self care to cleaning out that cabinet of expired medication, we have the perfect tips for you to help simplify and create less stress in your life.
1. Make Time For Yourself
It’s okay to say, “no.” If you have been feeling stressed lately and need to thin out your overly booked schedule, make room by rescheduling plans with friends or family. Don’t feel obligated to say yes to your coworkers for happy hour. Instead, do what makes you feel recharged by either reading a book, getting a massage or taking a long bath.
If that still doesn’t help the stress melt off, try our Calm Mood relief oil that helps to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, worry, nervous tension, irritability, and any overwhelming feelings of everyday life without drowsy or sluggish side effects.
2. Prepare For The Next Day
If you have a busy week ahead of you, try and plan things out before you go to bed. Whether that is packing your lunch the night before, picking out your clothes, planning your workout or even making a to-do list of things you need to get done the next day. By planning, you’re setting yourself up for a day full of less stress because you’re on top of things.
Plus, because you prepared, you might be able to get a few more minutes of shut eye.
3. Have A Consistent Bedtime
Did you know that by going to bed at the same time every night, it makes it easier to fall asleep? It can also make you happier, smarter, and overall healthier. By going to bed at the same time, it helps with your brain’s circadian performance the next day, allowing you to be more productive and process more information.
If you are still struggling to fall asleep, try our roll-on sleep aid. It works wonders when you’re trying to get to sleep, and you will wake feeling refreshed.
4. Ditch The Expired Meds
If you were to open your medicine cabinet, would you find medication that is at least a few years expired? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us.
However, expired medical products can be less effective or risky due to a change in chemical composition or a decrease in strength. Certain expired medications are at risk of bacterial growth and sub-potent antibiotics can fail to treat infections, leading to more serious illnesses and antibiotic resistance.
So, take the time to dispose of the icky old meds and replace them with clean, organic medicine like our products. We promise you will feel happier not only from the organization but also from putting clean substances in your body.
5. Get Organized and Stay Focused
Whether that is making a schedule of your meetings, events, and other obligations. Write it down, use an app, whatever you need to do to get it out in front of you. Don’t stop there. Now, write down the goals you want to accomplish for the week and rate them from the highest priority to the lowest. By seeing what tasks you need to complete, you can organize and manage your time more efficiently.
Still having a hard time focusing? Try our natural brain performance enhancer that helps you naturally enhance your brain power and improves your cognitive ability.
There you have it! We hope these tips help jump start your journey to declutter, get organized and find the mental fortitude to go about the rest of the year with new habits that promote less stress.
