Pics of the week: 40
I worked on Tuesday then did the grocery shopping. Riveting.
My working day on Thursday was made a million times more pleasant as I'd been kindly sent a few samples from the 'Scent to Instantly De-Stress' range from Neom Organics to try; a de-stressing mist which you spritz above your head, a roll-on which you roll onto your pulse points (wrists, temples and behind the ears), and a shower gel. I forgot to use the shower gel in the morning, but I used the roll-on and spray throughout the day and felt so refreshed. Both contain lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood essential oils and reminded me of the essential oils mix that my mum made for me to help me concentrate for my GCSEs. To say I've had difficulty concentrating recently is an understatement; and I wasn't magically cured by the scents, but they did help to calm my racing mind slightly and made me focus for a minute or two on the smells and nostalgia of the examination hall, if nothing else. In fact, I suppose they just distracted me even more from the task at hand, but it was a welcome distraction. Neom have just launched an online wellbeing magazine which I am going to make sure I peep at from time to time as they're into mindfulness too. Has this been a buzzword for a long time, by the way, am I only just noticing that it's everyyywhere and seems to relate to everyyyything?
I hope you've had a good week; this week is my last at my current job. I have a week off for appointments/ settling in sessions at Joseph's new nursery and then I start my new position! Eeek! x
