"[When asked what surprised him most about humanity]: Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” - Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama hit this nail right on the head, didn’t he? It is so eye-opening to think about all of the decisions that we make that aren’t in line with what our priorities should be. Like decisions that conflict between money and health. We all want to be healthy physically, mentally, and financially. But, to be financially healthy we can easily work way too hard and create stress. Stress is really bad for us! It can age our bodies, leave us mentally exhausted, detract from having meaningful relationships, and even make us more prone to diseases. It’s easy to accidentally create a stressful life in our busy, modern world. Maybe we should take note of this wise quote and figure out how to simplify our lives and focus on lower stress versus piling on more and more work in order to buy things that we don’t really need.
Aromatherapy is a proven method to combat stress. It’s just one tool in the arsenal to put health where it should be on your list of priorities: at the top!
HERE’S WHAT’S BOOMING THIS WEEK!
Super Bowl 50 took place yesterday, and the Denver Broncos toppled the Carolina Panthers 24-10. Here are the 5 most remarkable (according to us) and BOOMING things that happened during the game:
1. Broncos’ linebacker Von Miller was named MVP with two (that’s right, two!) forced fumbles that both led to touchdowns. It’s great to see a defensive player get some glory in a game where quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers tend to shine the most.
