I have lived with anxiety for at least half of my life. I have been paralyzed in fear lying in bed thinking someone was in my house. I have colour coded my closest and spaced out my hangers on a daily basis. I have spent hours in the morning trying to get my pony tail perfect, only to not get it perfect, getting frustrated and throwing a wood hand held mirror at my big bathroom mirror. I have spent endless nights lying in bed trying to fall asleep but my mind won't shut down. My mind would go through every scenario, every what if until I was in tears. I would check my door at least 3 or 4 times before bed to make sure it was locked. The list goes on....
13 years ago I made the decision to seek professional help. Between my Doctor and my Psychologist and trying almost every drug out there I finally found one that helped me reach a level of comfort. Normal? No, because what is normal? It is only half the recommended dose but it takes that edge off. Allows me to be comfortable instead of obsessively agonizing over how my clothes are hung in my closet or how many times I washed the counter. Although this helped significantly there was still something missing. I still found myself spiralling out of control with the what ifs. I was still looking at things so negatively and bad shit was always happening to me. It was like I woke up everyday expecting something else shitty to happen.
In the past 2 years I found the other half of the equation. Lifestyle and mindset. Working on bringing balance into my life, having a supportive community of people in my life and who have my back and working on shifting my mindset from negative to positive has been the game changer. Incorporating the Oola lifestyle, learning how to properly set and achieve goals and working with a Life Mastery Coach on changing the way I think about things, not only has made me a better person, but has helped my family and friends and strengthened my mental and physical health. I will always be grateful that these things came into my life.
Implementing Essential Oils has also benefited my health tremendously. I use Thieves on a daily basis to help maintain my overall health. Peace and Calming and German Chamomile help me wind down at night and get a good nights rest. Valor and Vetiver have helped me with my anxiety and OCD.

If you think you may be suffering from anxiety please go to speak to someone. It is not healthy to try and deal with it alone.
