Your Daily Wellness Suggestion:
Every time you come to a stoplight (now known as your centering-light), use this time to practice centering yourself. Start with a couple of deep breaths. Center your mind by quieting it - tuning in to the present moment. Check-in with your body. Loosen up any areas which are tight. Check your mindset, make a perceptual switch if needed. And, Smile. :)
Start using your centering light today, it has potential to improve your health and well-being (especially if you get frequent red lights!). Sure beats getting frustrated with traffic!
I took this picture in Palm Beach, FL while there in May. The clouds lined up just right to create a straight line between light and dark. Nature is so amazing!
Knowing of the vastness of the Universe, why do we hang onto arguments and resentments, replaying them in our mind over and over again? Why do we allow the dislike from a handful of people effect our mood and self-esteem? Why do so many of us suffer alone in our struggles? Why do we have thoughts and fears focused on lack/scarcity?
THERE IS A WHOLE UNIVERSE BEYOND OUR DOORS! Being reminded of this, let's choose to shift our focus to the abundance and resources available to us. Let's step away from the negative (people, places and things) and step into a life that enhances our well-being.
There is a whole Universe beyond our doors! Let's tap into it's resources. Life is too short not to!
Let's rebel against a hectic lifestyle! Instead, let's slow down to enjoy life. Who's with me?!
Healthy habit suggestion:
Grab your calendar and block out times for you to do activities which will allow you to laugh and have fun. Laughter is the best medicine! All work and no play makes for a stress-filled, dull life.
You only get one body, one life. Make it your goal to enhance both. Life is too short not to!
Give yourself permission...
According to the Center of Disease Control, if you are experiencing stress on a consistent basis you are at a higher risk for developing life long health problems. Most chronic diseases are now being linked to stress. Do yourself (and your future self!) a favor and start making lifestyle changes to improve your enjoyment and longevity.
Stress-busters to start implementing into your daily routine:
Get outside! Connecting with nature relieves tension and increases calm feelings. Too busy to find a park? Even 5 minutes outside can improve your mood. Go outside during your lunch break rather than eating at your desk while you work. Breathe in the fresh air, feel the breeze and sun on your face and smile. :)
Breathe like a lion! Try this yoga breath to immediately relieve tension in your jaw, chest and face. Take a DEEP BREATH through your nose then stick your tongue out as far as possible toward your chin while exhaling with a loud prolonged 'ha' sound. Doing this a few times may even get you to laugh which leads me to the next stress buster:
Humor! A good belly laugh increases oxygen intake, decreases blood pressure and relaxes muscles. Create a Silly Brigade with your co-workers to see who can make the others laugh. Not only will this decrease your stress it may even improve productivity due to staff enjoyment at work.
