Walking and Smelling for Senior Citizen Wellness

When I walk, I take an essential oil sniffer with me (2 or 3 drops on a tissue). I am a certified aromatherapist/trainer for essential oils and I use my sense of smell with essential oils to provide me with the therapeutic benefits of relaxation, increased energy, and pain relief.

Walking gives me the benefits of increased energy, boosts my mood, provides relief from arthritis and helps increase my focus.

Do you know that there is recent research, which indicates walking helps our cognitive abilities?

Have you heard that loss of smell may indicate a decline in cognition?

When you have a moment, listen to my podcast on why smelling and walking is a good thing for senior citizens. Then make some ‘free’ time for yourself to move your body by using the videos below.
