Do you ever just feel…off? I know I certainly do at times. When things just don’t seem to be jiving right. When I just don’t feel like myself.

I know everyone says to drink water. But seriously, I’ve noticed when I’m feeling off or foggy headed if I drink a big glass of water it seems to really help. Sometimes I think I’m just a little dehydrated and that’s causing me to feel foggy-headed. Water helps support the cardiovascular system from getting dehydrated, therefore your heart isn’t having to do as much work if you’re staying good, and hydrated.
In case you didn’t already know, I love to write. I don’t do it near as often as I’d like #momlife. But when I take the time to sit down and just write…man, it’s incredibly therapeutic.
Take your Vitamins
I have found when I keep up and stay on track with taking my daily vitamins, I not only physically feel better, but mentally feel more alert. Here’s what I’ve found works for me:
Bottled Sunshine by Truvani: Vitamin D to help maintain healthy bones by making calcium more easily absorbed in your body. It also helps regulate moods and fights depression.
Mary Ruth’s Vitamin C: Vitamin C provides a strong antioxidant and promotes white blood cells which is important in boosting immunity. Also helps fight memory loss.
Life 9 Probiotic by Young Living: Probiotics help with a healthy gut. So much depends on the condition of your gut, it’s amazing when you really delve into the research.
Get Some Air
This probably seems like an obvious one, but how many times have you seen or heard this and actually done it? Stepping out and getting a big breath of fresh air can boosts happiness and energize the mind and body.
As you well know, I’m an avid oiler, and I always have some kind of essential oil on hand. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries for mental and physical wellness. I’ve found a handful of oils that really “speak” to me and help me feel balanced and calm. These are a few of my favorites to use, all Young Living single or blended oils.
- Northern Lights Black Spruce
- Sacred Mountain
My number one, most important thing I can do when I feel off, is pray. A lot of times it turns more into a meditation of a verse in scripture or a couple lines of prayer I repeat over and over. But I’ve found the best thing I can do to help me feel balanced is to speak to the One who created me and knows my inner most being; mind, heart, and soul.
Those are my 6 tips to staying focused when everything seems a little out of focus. But I think what’s most important is to find what works best for you. What do you like to do to stay centered?
