Calm Your Mind and Reduce Stress.
Have you ever wanted to know a quick and easy way to relax and feel good? Have you ever asked yourself, what can I do right now to feel better? Are you looking for a way to ground yourself to think more clearly?
From my experience working with many clients over the years and doing research on how the body and mind work. I discovered that people who get stressed easily have certain things in common. They experience stress automatically because they unconsciously react and focus on what they don’t want to have happen instead of what they do want to have happen in their life.
How Do You Calm the Mind and Reduce Stress?
Today more than ever, we need effective ways that can help us to reduce stress for mind body health. Many of us can turn on our stress response by our thoughts alone. This is because our primordial part of our brain known as the amygdala is triggered. Its job is to keep us alert for danger so that we can be safe. This part of the brain triggers the sympathetic nervous system and the fight and flight response, communicating to other parts of the brain and body to get ready for action.
Therefore, this ancient reptilian part of the brain that doesn’t know the difference between real danger like stumbling across a poisonous snake to hating your job, watching a scary movie, a critical comment from your boss, or running late and being stuck in traffic. All are equally threatening.
Creating Calm States of Being
To trigger the opposite effect, we can calm the mind and body in a matter of minutes. Creating a calm state will switch on the parasympathetic nervous system, which produces a natural relaxation response sending calming hormones throughout the body.
Our body is naturally equipped with everything we need to repair and heal, but it only works when we are in a calm and relaxed state of being. High levels of repetitive stress has a negative effect on the body, so I’m here today to share with you a simple a very effective way to calm your mind and reduce stress.
If you are wanting to take a quick break, recover after work, refresh and rejuvenate after a long hard day, or just be at peace throughout your day, then this will be perfect for you. What I want you to do right now, is listen to the video above and go through the relaxation process I’ve shared for you.
Let’s Get Started
Sit in a quiet, comfortable position and close your eyes.
Deeply relax all the muscles of your body.
Relaxing your toes, soles of your feet,
back of your body,
shoulders, arms hands, and fingers,
now your neck back of your head,
chest, stomach, abdomen.
Your whole body from your toes to the top of your head,
and your head to your toes, deeply relaxed.
Breathe through your nose.
Become aware of your breathing, flowing easily and effortlessly.
As you breathe out, say the word calm silently to yourself.
Breathe in and as you breathe out say calm,
breathe in and breathe out and say calm.
And continue breathing in and out saying calm.
Continue for 10 minutes breathing easily and naturally.
When you are finished, sit quietly a little longer with mindful awareness.
Practice this process regularly as it will help to condition your natural relaxation response. Creating homeostasis and a healthy mind and body.
