Stress Busters

“If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity,
I would  have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension.
And if you didn’t  ask me, I’d still have to say it.” George F. Burns

A burst of brightness!

I’ve been pondering how tension, stress & strain can build-up in our bodies and impact us in so many ways.

What are your signals that you’re becoming worn out from the stresses of life, and of caring for others?

 

A few ideas on releasing tension:

Decide on two times in a day that you will PAUSE and breathe more deeply.  Making sure your ‘Buddha belly’ rises and falls is one way to tell you’re taking nice full breaths

Write down two things you’re grateful for in life

Write a mini love-note to yourself!

Share an affirmation for someone out loud. Speaking positive words lift the spirits and often makes us smile. Did it work yet? 🙂

Give yourself a hand massage with your favourite lotion

Put some lavender oil or dried lavender near your bed while winding down before sleep. Lavender helps the relaxation process and smells great

Put on some lively music and dance away the hard parts of the day. Shaking your arms and legs to let go of negative energy can be a great thing to try too

Last but absolutely not least: Thank yourself for something wonderful that you bring to the world
