All of us at some point or other in our lives encounter a moment of major tension when our personal performance can determine the direction our lives will take. It can be the day one takes an entrance exam, auditions for a part, or interviews for a job. When that occasion is pending the sense of tension and uneasiness can be so strong that it affects your ability to prepare well for the event. Some people can’t sleep at all the night before the event; others find themselves so “stressed out” as to be incapable of any further preparation or even just basic relaxation or meditation.
The power of essential oils proves to be especially beneficial in situations like this. Calming baths with lavender scented oil mixed in Epsom salts is an excellent prelude to a restful night. Soaking for as long as possible releases tension from muscles and deep breathing calms the mind.
One way to cope with the jitters and stress that comes with the anxiety pending a major test or presentation event is by giving yourself a chance to relax in a more comfortable atmosphere. You can relieve yourself from some of that stress by staying at a Motel 6 where you can take advantage of a Groupon promo code to get a good discount rate on a reservation for a room the night preceding the event. You can take advantage of Motel 6’s quality services and facilities to relieve your mind of any additional worries. Have a meal delivered to your room and listen to some calm music. Enjoy the relaxation that you get when you use a diffuser to fill the room air with an essential oil that relaxes both your mind and body, eliminating the stress that has built up during the days before the coming exam. Just as you took advantage of your Groupon coupon to enjoy the Motel 6 room at a discount of 20% try to discard worries about expenses, pre-test jitters and stress. Schedule a wake-up call and then lie down and get the rest that will enable you to perform your best.
By staying someplace away from your regular grind you give your mind an opportunity to escape the mundane thoughts and worries that can interfere with your ability to concentrate and perform your best. The next time you’re about to face a potentially major event that can affect your future, try taking a proactive step by dealing with the event on your own terms. Use the bounty of nature’s oils to put your mind at ease so that you can put your best foot forward when the time comes.
