Thing #3 That I Love: Lavender

Scents are, and have always been, very impactful for me. I try my best to leave a bottle of lavender essence in my car and in my work bag. Lavender works wonders when my day gets surprisingly stressful. I’ve taught myself to stop and smell the lavender! For me, this really works. It definitely brings me back to the present moment and lets me get a little centered before dealing with the next issue at hand.
