The big S word—STRESS--You can’t get away from feeling it, talking about it or hearing it constantly!
For many of us, stressful thoughts are on a constant audio doom loop—“I’m so stressed at work”, “my kids are under so much stress it’s stressing me out watching them” etc. We know from today’s science that most dis-ease processes originate from stress.
So the question is---how do we deal with STRESS? What are some helpful strategies and techniques that work for you?
We created a list in our Circle that included the following suggestions:
A daily practice of meditation calms the body and the mind and provides rest
Regular acupuncture sessions keeps the energy balanced in the body and provides grounding
A yoga practice combines meditation, movement and breathing to calm and center the body and mind
Regular exercise helps to “sweat the stress out”
Breathing consciously and correctly can instantly provide calm to the body
Massage and body work for relaxation and energy flow
Choosing optimistic thoughts instead of pessimistic ones can take your body to a better feeling place
Using specific essential oils and flower essences internally and externally
Learning how to “Let Go” with mindfulness techniques and affirmations
Dr. Wayne Dyer said, ”If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” His book “Change Your Thoughts-Change Your Life” is a must read!
