Mood Management

Standard

Sometimes changing your current emotional state is not easy. You may be feeling depressed, anxious, fearful, stressed out, any number of negative emotions that adversely affect your mind and body. That’s when you might need some external assistance to get to your “happy” place. The quickest way to change a bad mood to a good one is through the olfactory system. Smell triggers emotions and memory. A smell associated with a happy event is the fastest and easiest way to elevate your mood. If you don’t have those scents on hand, or in my case where my HAPPY smell is gingerbread and I don’t want to eat mindlessly or have tempting gingerbread around, other basic scents will also work universally to elevate your mood.
The most common mood elevating oils / scents are Citrus oils.

I utilize a blend of essential oils. These oils diffused in a room or directly applied to the soles of my feet, help me combat depression, anxiety, anger, and help me change my frame of mind to one of happiness and contentment which are much more conducive to productivity and success.

About leisatwatkins

In May 2011, I hit an all time low in my life and an all time high in my weight. I was 199 pounds and the idea of hitting 200 scared me. I had tried every known diet, HCG, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, the grapefruit diet. I'd even tried Phen-phen when I was younger and Dexatrim before that. While I'd lose a little weight, I would always gain it back and then more. I knew the yo-yo dieting was not healthy for my body and it was definitely wreaking havoc on my mental wellness. I didn't know what to do and I was looking into taking drastic surgical measures to lose weight. That's when a friend of mine told me his story about losing over 200 pounds without pills, surgery, or starving himself. Not only did he lose the weight, but he kept it off. What did I have to lose? I asked him to share the secret with me. Now, only six short months later, I weigh 140 lbs and am working on losing 5 more. That will put me back to my weight that I was in HS, college, and before I had children. And I've done it with my friend's help as my Health Coach, without starving or even exercising, although I love to walk everyday. I haven't felt hungry at all in this process. How many "diets" can say that? I feel fantastic! I've felt great since the first week on this program. Let me be very clear about this. This is NOT a diet. This is not something you do for a little while, lose the weight, then go back to your old eating habits. This program is a life changing plan to help you eat healthier, make food choices that are tailored to your body, and bring you to a state of optimal physical health. If like me, you are tired of diets that don't work, then let me show you a life style plan that does.
