Do You Need to Declutter?

When you have a women’s group, the range of topics you can discuss is endless.   Everyday issues and profound life questions are all potential discussion points for a group.   A women’s group can be powerful in helping members handle common everyday issues by offering other possibilities…different perspectives.

An everyday issue that lots of people face is how we deal with our space.    Are you happy with the way your space looks?   Do you twinge when you open a draw and can’t find what you want or you see a bunch of keys which you don’t have any idea where they belong.   Resistance is at it’s best here.    What if you were to work together as a group, helping each other start the decluttering process.

Aromatherapy and You

Aromatherapy is a way to improve the quality of everyday living on many levels; physical, emotional and spiritual. Everyone has emotional responses to certain scents. Pleasing scents have always had a beneficial effect upon well-being. 

The idea behind aromatherapy is to find the special scents, unique for each individual, that provide positive sensory feelings and emotions, and then, to introduce those scents into our everyday life to enhance our well-being. Essential oils impact us on all levels, some are relaxing, some invigorating, some lend themselves to romance or balance hormonal swings or improve memory, induce a meditative state and more.
