“Humans are social beings, and we are happier, and better, when connected to others.”
~ Paul Bloom
Being an introvert, I wasn’t really affected by the community lockdown when it started. It was fine with me just to stay at home and work from home.
I made a major shift in my career. My world started to get smaller as I was confined in the four corners of my room while conversing with people virtually.
It continued for several months.
Until one morning I woke up to find out things turned 180 degrees. I had that feeling of burnout.
Pondering on this situation, I realized the need to reach out to someone. I just had to physically meet somebody human.
I started meeting different sets of friends physically, following the safety protocols.
I had a brunch date with my friends from intermediate school.
We reconnected with nature. It was really a good feeling to breathe in fresh air, to listen to the chirping birds, to walk on the ground barefooted and enjoy feasting my eyes on the green plants and trees around me.
We laughed our hearts out as we talked about anything and everything under the sun. Each one has a very interesting life story to tell. Wow, it felt amazingly good.
“Man is, at one and at the same time, a solitary being and a social being.”
~ Albert Einstein
As if that were not enough, that afternoon, I had a home service massage. To me then, it was the most relaxing and soothing massage in my entire life.
Having the background of energy healing, the Masseuse helped me relax and release the tension from my thoughts, emotions and physical body.
That moment, I felt connected with myself as she guided me to talk to my body to normalize the blood components during the massage.
She used OLEIA Pure Oil for the massage. This is recommended for pregnant women and babies with super sensitive skin and is also used for skin irritation and body aches.
Hey, keep your eyebrows down. Of course, am not pregnant. I just felt like a grownup baby. I wanted to see how the unscented OLEIA Pure would soothe me. And it was not a letdown. It was likewise soothing, comforting and relaxing to my stiff muscles and joints.
Its anti-inflammatory blend of healthy olive oil, moringa seed oil, virgin coconut oil, pomegranate seed oil and other premium oils, synergistically formulated to allow fast transdermal delivery of healthy nutrients to the blood vessels and tissues of the body, really help the affected cells to recover faster.
I have recently had low blood hemoglobin count due to poor diet and lack of sleep. This made me pale-looking.
Voila! After the massage, my palms and feet started to turn pinkish.
It was a grace-filled day that I was able to reconnect with some of the important things and people – nature, my friends and myself.
