With daylight savings time ending this weekend and days getting shorter, it is that time again to break out my nebulizer. Last year was the worst I felt in years, seasonal depression hit hard and It took till February to find true solution. That was my nebulizer which puts negative ions into the air, you may be asking what that does so let me explain it’s magic.
Negative ions are not seen by the naked eye but can be felt. When we are near large bodies of water or even in the shower, these atoms are released. They cause us to feel relaxed and at peace, but most of all helps our mood. To do this it relieves stress and anxiety and from that you have more energy to do things that fuel you. As an added bonus it also boosts your immune system and purifies the air. But that is just the techy-science side of it.
The best part of it is I can diffuse oils to set the mood or add a boost to my productivity. No matter what I am doing, even sleep, I can make it more effective with my favorite essential oils diffused.
This one is on often, I love the blend of citrus, rose and jasmine together. There is something really enchanting about diffusing this oil and having a self care night. It just feels right (especially with some reading socks and a glass of wine or cup of tea).
As a nature lover I had to get his oil. It feels like you brought in a forest into your space. With pine needle, balsam fir, sage and cedar wood in the mix; it really covers many of the tree types here in Ontario. This one will be on when I am feeling extra festive or just need to relax.
My go-to for deep restful sleep. The holidays get me restless so on evenings that are followed by a day off this will be on the go. Getting that deep sleep really is key to get through the craziness. On other days it helps for sore muscles ( when applied to the skin) and numerous other things.
Seasonal depression can hit any of us, with the holidays we just want to get through it all. If you have a chance to try out a nebulizer or oils even, let us know in the comments. I love hearing about your journey too!
