Let’s uncover why lemon can make a difference when working with numbers both for good bookkeeping and in tracking for success.

but it is also beneficial to aid in mental clarity and focus. Diffusion of lemon is a detoxifier and a deodorizer so use it to keep your workspace air and energy clean and clear. Add a few more oils to your mix such as lavender or bergamot, to reduce stress and bring balance.

and respect myself for who I am and what I can do. I am blessed with mental clarity. It is easy
for me to integrate all that is going on around me.

Interesting tidbits: Ancient Egyptians used lemon on fish and meat to avoid food
poisoning. Lemons were introduced to Europe by crusaders during the early middle ages. When
the aroma of lemon essential oil is diffused into the air in office buildings, it is believed to
improve worker focus and reduce error.”

Daylight Savings Time on March 12 marks the coming of Spring. We leap forward loosing one hour of sleep and gain the much-anticipated additional daylight. But with the change our bodies must also adjust. Sleep can be a challenge until our bodies regulate. Using the following tools can be extremely helpful during this time of transition.

Meditation –  Whether you are a stressed executive, the over-scheduled mother or the creative genius we all need a time to learn to be quiet and block out the incessant chatter and slow down with a quiet mind, even if only for a few minutes at a time.

If you are having trouble doing this on your own, you may want to try Short Meditations for Busy People. This CD helps you to quiet your mind to gain a place of peacefulness.
