How Does One Build Resilience?
As I reflect upon my childhood, I remember having to do so many things without the support of my parents. If I wanted or needed to do it, I just had to figure a way to do it, without relying on them. That is not to say that they were not good parents but times were different then.  These days, parents are constantly running their children from one activity to another, and kids get chauffeured to school, with few exceptions who walk or catch the bus. In fact, there are Walk to School programs to encourage children to walk to school.  How many people worry about rain in case they get a little bet wet?  I do realise that it is a different world today and, with distances being covered and safety issues, parents want to make sure their children get to school safely. The point is not really about walking in the rain or the heat- it is about persevering and pushing through things, without making excuses or giving up.
My memories:

As time goes on, knowledge changes so we need to keep up with the latest knowledge if we are going to get the maximum benefit from our oils. Later, in this post, I will discuss how you can start taking responsibility for your wellness.
When I first came upon essential oils, it was when my older children were teenagers and, later, as a representative for Le Reve. (preceding post Part 1) At that time, essential oils were starting to appear in large department stores and oil burners were flying out the stores' doors. My first bottle of essential oil was Rosemary and that was 21 years ago, for the princely sum of $37 at Myer. We had quite a collection of oil burners at home. So that's what I used and, in all honesty, the effects were immediately noticeable on me. Later, with Le Reve at my fingertips, I had quite a collection of oils in my pretty box…
Best Ways To Use Essential Oils

Best Ways to Use Essential OilsThe basic building blocks of aromatherapy are essential oils.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.  Source:
My first encounter with aromatherapy was when one of my daughters was doing VCE and I bought Rosemary oil to aid her studying.  At the same time, I was burning the candle at both ends and took time off as I was suffering from chronic fatigue. It was so debilitating that I could just sleep most of the day and still feel exhausted. I would wash the breakfast dishes and could hardly get through the chore without crashing on the…

What are 5 Health Habits You Can't Live Without?
Many chronic diseases are caused by lifestyle issues. People tend not to exercise as much as they should, they allow themselves to become overweight, and they eat unhealthy foods that lead to things like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and strokes.
The problem with lifestyle issues is that they are difficult to turn around. Many people try to change their lifestyle all at once, which is extremely difficult to accomplish.
 As a result, they often give up all of their healthy habits and resort to the usual negative health habits that they had been doing before they attempted a healthy lifestyle. 
Sometimes it just takes a few days or a few weeks of trying to live healthy before the individual becomes overwhelmed and stops living healthy. They stop exercising and go back to eating processed foods and junk foods.
This is why it is better to change your health habits one habit at a time so that you don’t become overwhelmed and …
