I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that on any given day I feel completely overwhelmed. When I’m working I feel like I’m short-changing my kids and when I’m playing with my kids I’m thinking of the deadline that I’m missing. Oh yeah, then let’s throw in trying to help my mom deal with my dad who has Alzheimers, finding the best therapies for my son with special needs, cleaning the house, cooking meals and spending a little time with my fiancée. My brain sometimes feels like a pressure cooker that’s about to explode.
There’s really not much that I can do to ease the tension, but I recently learned that Vicks VapoRub can actually help relieve headaches. I had never even considered using it for anything other than relieving my kids’ cough! So now, I escape to my bedroom (and yes sometimes even sit in the car), put a little on my temples and forehead and it almost immediately starts reducing the pain and pressure. The aroma helps calm me down as well. Who knew??!
