Overcome the post-holiday let-down with Dr. Bach's Flower Remedies

Feeling let-down after Christmas is pretty normal. When you've spent weeks preparing for the big event and looking forward to seeing far-away family, having it suddenly be over leaves a big hole.

Plus, you may be feeling a bit lonely if loved ones have been here and now they're gone again.

Feel5ive just to help me get back on track. Then I make myself get busy with house cleaning, catching up on projects, and setting some goals for the coming year.  

All that takes some focus and concentration, which means I don't have time to feel sorry that I can't keep my kids at home for the rest of their lives.

If your feelings are a little more extreme - as in true distress because you can't be with them and assuring yourself of their safety at all times - you might want to try the Bach Flower Essence Chicory.

First read about how Chicory can help you, then go to Feel Bach! to place your order.

How to stop smoking in 2014

Is one of your New Year's resolutions a promise to yourself to stop smoking? It's a very good idea -

Chemical products flood the market, but if you have an aversion to pharmaceuticals and worry as much about their side effects as you do about smoking, I have good news - FeelBach! has a flower essence blend to help you keep that resolution.

Quit Smoking is the FeelBach! blend that will gently re-balance your energies and allow you to keep your resolve to stop. 
both for health and financial reasons - but of course it isn't easy. You might need a little help.

The thing is, smoking is not just an addiction to nicotine. Nor is it just a habit. If you're like many others, smoking is a part of "who you are." You identify yourself as a smoker – you may even smoke as a form of standing up for "who you are" against those who say you "must not."  Changing our own ideas of who we are can be a wrenching emotional experience.

Quit Smoking will help you overcome all three of these reasons why you smoke. And at only $7.95 per bottle - it's much more cost effective than a therapist!

If you dread the Christmas season…

While some are eagerly shopping, baking and decorating, others are dreading every bit of it. "Bah-humbug" is their motto.

If that's you, why not turn it around - take control of the situation so you can enjoy the season.

First, determine what it is you dread. Sit down with yourself and really think about it. Then make changes.

If you take on too many projects, decide which ones you don't enjoy and drop them! Say no to anything that doesn't bring you joy.

If money is the problem, remember that the season is about good will – you don't HAVE to spend a lot of money to spread that around. So don't over extend. Give gifts of your time and attention instead.

If you're going to face people who always bring you down, stop and feel sorry for them. The reason they're bringing you down is that they aren't so happy themselves. Then either decide not to spend time with them, determine to ignore them, or get bold and call them at their game.

If you're lonely, look around you. Someone else is lonely too, so reach out.

Meanwhile, do some things to lift your own spirits. Get outside and take a brisk walk - the exercise is energizing and clears your head. Turn on music you love and sing along at the top of your lungs. Even better, get up and dance while you sing - you'll be amazed at how good that feels.

Schedule time with a favorite friend for shopping and lunch. Set aside some one-on-one time with kids, parents, spouse, or anyone else who is important to you.

Sit down and make a list of things you're thankful for. Taking time to give thanks each day gives you a better attitude and helps kick the Law of Attraction into action to bring more of those good things into your life. Decide now to turn your focus to the good things in your life.

If your self-examination revealed some emotional issues you need to deal with, go to Feel Bach! and take the questionnaire. Then get the Bach flower essences blend that's indicated and remember to take it.

You deserve to feel good - and to enjoy the Holiday Season just as much as anyone else. It's not selfish - because the better you feel, the better the people who love you will feel. 

So get busy - do something for you today.

It's the Holiday Season - is it marred by a damaged relationship?

Sometimes the best relationships can be marred by some small misunderstanding or disagreement. If not nipped in the bud, it can escalate - just get larger and larger until you find yourself in a place you don't want to be.  

It could be with a child, a spouse, or even a parent. One of you becomes angry, the other reacts with more anger, and it just keeps going back and forth.
The first step in healing is to get your own feelings under control, so your own reactions can change. That change will often cause a positive change in the other person.

The first thing you need to do is really examine your own feelings. Look at yourself as you think others might be seeing you. Do they see a person who is controlling, one who can't let anyone else be right, or maybe one who is afraid of change? Then think about what feelings you have that are contributing to that image.

Then go to the questionnaire at FeelBachand be completely honest filling it out - even if it feels painful to face truths about your own behavior. Remember, this isn't being broadcast to the world - this is you talking with you.

When you see what blend is recommended for you, take a look at the individual essences and read what they'll do for you.

Then, if you're committed to healing the relationship, get your blend and let it begin working on your energies - so the next time you feel attacked by that other person you can respond from a better place. You should soon see that your changed reactions will cause a better reaction from them - and it should get better and better until your relationship is back on a track of love and understanding.

Relationships with those we love are too precious to let them fall by the wayside when there are simple ways to save them.
