When you take the time to step away from your computer screen or phone or Television set, you have a chance to invest in your health and wellbeing.
Three things you can do to alleviate stress or pressure from home and work :
1. Remove your shoes and walk through the sand or grass, feel the texture against your skin, let your mind wander into connection between the softness ,graininess,coolness or heat that you can feel.
2. Sit on a hill, over looking a valley, or sit a fence or wall over looking the water, anywhere there is height ,so you can feel the power of the universe as you observe its beauty. Feel the breeze on your face as you place your hand on your heart to let the beat echo through the palm of your hand.
3. Lie down on the floor, feel the hardness under your body, then travel through your body start at your head and soften or relax each body part, this brings complete awareness into just how much tension we are carrying around in our bodies each day. As you move on to each area of the body take a deep breath using your nose , exhale just as much air as you inhale slowly.
All these things are simple but can help rewire your brain bringing you into the moment, helping to reverse tension, stress and the nagging voice in your head that create scenarios to overwhelm and depress you. Do one or more daily of these activities, this will indeed help you see with fresh eyes the beautiful world in which we live and help revitalise your passion for living.
