Quite often you hear that stress is the primary
culprit in illness, in work related absences and
in overall discontentment. Hospitals have added
meditation and massage to their services for this
very reason. Below you’ll find tools that’ll relieve
stress 24/7 and at no charge.
Nature automatically has a comforting effect on
your psyche, so shift your attention to the outdoors.
Driving along an ocean’s shore evokes that sense
of calm. Digging in a garden dissolves stress quickly.
If you are unable to interact with live plants,
artificial plants, or even paintings that emulate
the same type of feeling can work.
Evaluate your home by standing for a moment in each
room and notice your feelings. Bright, vibrant colors
tend to keep you stimulated and active and are great
in rooms where you keep busy. Muted, subtle tones
soothe and relax. Your bedroom beckons consideration
for it is where you rest and refresh. Then there
is the congestion of things. It blocks energy flow
and creativity, and can not only cause physical
maladies, but emotional as well- clear up clutter
and lift your mood.
Meditation, prayer and music are all excellent de-stressors
and achieve inner and outer harmony. Meditation
specifically, eases you into a state of relaxed,
altered consciousness, bliss and oneness. Consistent
daily practice is recommended for immense and long
term benefits- though only five minutes a day can
still harvest excellent results.
