If you find yourself doing the same routine day after day, never remembering what you did the day before, having nothing to look forward to, living your life – but never enjoying it or anything in it… you are probably living your life and the relationships in it on autopilot.
The really devastating part about living life on autopilot, especially when it comes to your relationships, is that you don’t even know that you’re doing it half the time. You’re just living your life, wishing for more, but not really sure if there is more or how to get it. While many people live out their entire lives on autopilot (which is truly sad), the way to have truly rewarding and successful lives and relationships is to be totally aware and adaptable when it comes to life.
So, how do you do that?
1. Stop and smell the roses (literally).
Take time to notice all the little things around you that you always use to look at when you were 6!
Or better, try aromatherapy! At home or in the office, there’s a scent for every mood and emotion.
Scents for productivity
When life gets busy, chances are you may be overlooking one of the easiest ways to set a productive mood: with scent. If you need more focus, or simply want to stimulate your mind, eucalyptus is the one to go for.
Experience the invigorating and refreshing scent peppermint, paired with its therapeutic benefits. This pure essential oil will add zest and energy to any environment.
Scents for stress relief
There are even home fragrances designed to help you recentre during times of high stress.
When life feels like a hectic mess and you need to unwind, there are fragrances perfect to scent your home, such as lavender, chamomile or ylang ylang. Ylang Ylang not only smells great, but it will lower your stress levels too.
This floral scent is known traditionally to help promote happy dreaming and is a bedtime essential oil that pairs well with Lavender. High grade Ylang Ylang aroma, sourced from the coast of Madagascar. Vitruvi Ylang Ylang is an exotic essential oil that creates a floral oasis in any space.
2. Think about your short and long-term goals.
Do you still have those? And if so – have you forgotten them? Re-write that list and start working on accomplishing your next short-term goal.
3. Remember your relationship?
When was the last time you did something new with him/her? When was the last time you even wanted to? Start thinking about your relationship and stop just “being in it”.
