Ok we are heading in to week two of my cleanse. The first week was a breeze, the weekend was a little challenging. It was odd not having my typical Saturday night glass (or eight) of wine or a little dirty martini, extra olives. Somehow I made it through to Sunday and after my run I felt a little injury flare up so I decided to hop over to the RMT for a massage. It was so lovely and I am feeling much better but about halfway in to my massage I started feeling anxious about everything I still had to do. Now I suffer from anxiety and it’s not out of the ordinary for my heart to start racing or to feel like I’m on the brink of a breakdown (don’t worry it’s under control!) but it made me realize just how much we have to compartmentalize our day in this fast-paced world.
I finished my massage and had a cup of tea after but as every minute crept up, I kept feeling more and more anxious about all I had to do and I actually said to myself, “Ok time to stop relaxing. You need to finish your day.” It was an aha moment for me because I was shocked that I actually had to dead stop and get back to reality.
It’s a fact of life I guess, but it reminded me of why the little things mean so much in our day-to-day. I thought it was fitting to share this little story since I recently started using Pine-Sol around the house in this incredible lavender scent and it’s honestly added a little joy to my cleaning routine. If you follow me on Snapchat (un: lexniko) you know Lavender is my absolute favorite scent. I use it in my nebulator, I alway travel with lavender essential oils; I basically live for the smell!
I love using this new multi-surface cleaner around the entire house knowing that I am getting through tough stains, grease and grime, all with this refreshing new scent that’s soothing and smells so clean. It adds a bit of sparkle to a regime I strongly dislike and at the end of the day we have to make the most mundane of tasks enjoyable!
The new Pine-Sol Lavender, along with original and three more new scents is available nationwide so let me know if you try it out.
What’s your favorite scent?!
