Too often, we forget how necessary it is to release negativity in order to rejuvenate our souls. We find ourselves caught up with work, school, our little ones, or keeping the household together, that we neglect our body’s natural need to unwind. Setting some time aside to relax is essential for leading a happy, healthy, and balanced life.
Try incorporating the following activities into your life to help reduce everyday stress and achieve a state of deep relaxation.
Take a deep breath...maybe a few. Following specific, yet simple breathing patterns can be beneficial for those days when you are feeling overwhelmed. Try counting or extending inhales or exhales. It will help you stay focused on things that matter and push you through tougher days. This technique is convenient, as it can be done anywhere and at any time.
When done correctly, this practice can help you feel completely at ease. Meditation aids in clearing the mind and brings about emotional stability. Sometimes it means sitting in silence, repeating a mantra, or just closing your eyes and de-cluttering your mental file-cabinet of thoughts. To experience a full immersion, you can light a candle, like our Plant Lady Candle by Let’s Put A Bird On It.
Go on a power walk by the sea or in the mountains, dance your booty off, head to your favorite spin studio. These are all beneficial activities for both the body and the mind. Constant rhythmic movements can help you cope with stress and anxiety among other things. If you're looking for some active wear, consider these cute yet comfy leggings from Spiritual Gangster or perhaps their "You Are The Universe" hoodie for a chilly climate.
Find a quiet spot to sit and use your own imagination and senses to create your own utopia. Picture yourself with your toes in the sand on a remote island or the smell of redwoods in an ethereal forest. Consistent practice of this relaxation technique will gradually grow your patience and abilities to face daily challenges.
