Fear-Less

Posted by terrepruitt on October 23, 2019

I could have sworn I posted about this ages ago. I vaguely remember typing something up. I think the name had stopped me from posting about it in the past. Everyone I tell about it comments something to the effect, “Well, I’m not AFRAID.” So, I think the name is really off-putting. It could be some people might not equate being unable to fall asleep with “fear, anxiety, or panic”. I don’t know many people that want to admit feeling those things. And when we are unable to fall asleep we might not think of it as fear or anxiety or panic. Often times people just say they “can’t turn off their brain.” But to me that equates to anxiety. I am anxious that I didn’t get all that I wanted to get done that day. Or I am anxious about all that I have to do tomorrow. Anyway . . . I don’t like the name . . . I wish they would change it. I feel that they might get more people purchasing it if they gave it a different name. (But, really, I don’t know how many people DO purchase it, so that is a silly thought on my part!) I am talking about Fear-Less. It is a formula made from flowers from Flower Essence Services.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit, City of San Jose Exercise Classes, Cambrian Yoga & Cardio Dance, CYCD, Yin YogaThis formula is described as something that can be used for “any known condition that provokes fear or anxiety – such as public performance or travel”. The site goes onto say that it is good for times of panic and chaos. Also, that is can help children and pets. I really think they could add that it helps in simple situations like traffic or being unable to sleep. Traffic is annoying, to me, and this helps with that aggravation. Flower Essence Services also sells a sleep formula so that could be why they don’t promote this one as something that can help you sleep. I don’t like their sleep formula as much. I think Fear-Less works better for me.

Sometimes I just have a lot on my mind or I am not really that tired, but I know that I have to go to bed because I have to get up early the next morning. I just use a few squirts of this. Or sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and an idea pops into my head and I could easily just start to choreograph a dance or plan a routine, but I know I should just go back to sleep, so I just spray some of it in my mouth. You can take it orally or spray it on you or around you, like on your pillow and sheets.

There are many reasons one might want to simply want to feel a little more calm . . . this might be something that could help*. It works for me.

Do you have any remedies for trouble falling asleep?  Or any remedies to help you feel more calm?

CMA: (Instead of CYA)

Posted by terrepruitt on March 3, 2009

Hey, this is a blog, so I feel I am stating the obvious, but I also feel that I need to do so, so that we can be certain that you know what is going on here.  I am “talking out loud” and sharing information.  I will do research or supply information to help support the things I say on this blog, I will be responsible for what I say in my blogs, but in no way, shape or form, am I or my company to be held responsible for anything that happens that you might consider suing someone over.    I cannot be responsible for what other people say, what other people do, or what you say or do.   Be responsible, be respectful, and we can all get along just fine.

My blogs are “in the moment” meaning when I write them and when I post them that is when I mean them.  I could change my mind and I reserve the right to do so.  In fact, in some cases, I hope I do change my mind because that is what it is about; learning, changing, growing, etc.  So my opinions might change, they might not.  If they do, deal with it, I am under no obligation to explain myself (although knowing me, I probably will because I will be excited that I learned something new).

Comment “Policy”

Please post comments, but keep them nice.  If they are not nice, I won’t leave them/approve them.  Also, all comments posted are the views of their author and my allowing them to remain does not imply that I agree with their contents.

By posting a comment to my Blog you agree to the Comments Policy. If you do not agree with the Comments Policy please do not post comments.

As a reminder, by reading my blog you are demonstrating that you are aware of the above and understand that nothing on my blogs can be held against me.  Also, you might want to check back here every once in a while because I am new to blogging and I am sure that I will learn a lot along the way, so this is going to change. 

Thank you so much for your time.  I know life is really busy so I appreciate you reading this and stopping by my blog.
