in your brain are your amygdala and hypothalamus, which moderate your
emotional and physiologic responses such as body temperature and
heart rate. They also go to the hippocampus, which is involved in memory
Because of this connection, scent is a potent tool for changing your
mood. Scent can relax you, stimulate your appetite, lift your
spirits, or calm you down.

of getting healing scents. Peppermint can relieve motion sickness;

of scent to take away your stress and heighten your experiences.

of a healing nature can help heal us when we come into contact with
it. That's why many people are using sound healing for managing their
stress, emotional ups and downs, and other ailments.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many of us try to
remember its core values of peace and compassion. One simple exercise
of sound and vibration for your heart chakra can help generate and/or

your chest. Let the sound come from your chest and clear any
stagnant energy there. Make the sound for as long as you can and
then take a breath when you need to. Use all of the air in your
chest before you take in more.
deeply saying "Ah" for at least a minute, but you can
do it for longer if it is comfortable for you.
This quick exercise will relieve your stress, open

exercise a step further and mentally send that love, compassion, and
peace to your friends, your family, your enemies, all the people of
the world, and even the earth.
