Everyone has been told that they have to learn to release their emotions, but a vast majority of the general population doesn’t really understand how to go about doing so, or why it’s such an important aspect of life.
If everyone was happy all the time, emotional release wouldn’t be a problem. Happiness is something that automatically bubbles out of people. Other emotions are different. They can get bottled up inside of you, which causes tension. When you develop too much tension, you’ll have a difficult time sleeping, you might lose your appetite or start a process called emotional eating, many people get headaches and sore muscles, and you will find that you’re irritable. If you go to long without an emotional release, the pressure will continue to build up inside of you until one day you just explode.
You need to remember that you’re not the only person who is suffering from your pent up tension. Everyone you love knows you are feeling stressed and irritable, the more irritable you become, the more stressed they become. Eventually the relationship starts to suffer.
Learning how to release your emotions isn’t always easy. There are times when finding someone you can talk to, going for a long walk, or going on prescription medication simply isn’t an option. The good news is that as long as you have a stick or cone of home incense handy, you can use it as part an aromatherapy session that will help you relax, giving your mind and body a chance to purge itself of the pent up tension.
It will only take you a few aromatherapy sessions to realize just how much giving yourself a chance to release your pent up emotions improves your life. Not only will you feel better, both mentally and physically, but you’ll also notice that not carrying around a massive load of tension means you seldom overreact and that you’re better able to deal with the little problems that always crop up during the course of the day. You’ll be happier and pretty soon you’ll notice that the people close to you are happier as well.
Don’t assume that just because you work in an environment where lighting up a stick of home incense isn’t an option that you can’t use aromatherapy to help you escape the stress professional life brings on.
Tuck a few sticks of your favorite home incense into your computer bag. Whenever you feel yourself getting irritated by a co-worker or you think your boss is treating you unfairly, you can pull out the incense, hold it close to your nose, and breathe in the scent. Not only will it help you relax, but after you carry around a few stick of incense in your laptop bag long enough, material will absorb the smell.
