We all suffer from the effects of stress at some point in our lives and as we approach the festive season that can increase even more for some. Small and large business owners, parents, those on a low wage and people on their own to name but a few, all suffer and it affects more than you may realize.
Staying in a state of high alert and stress is so damaging to our bodies, not just mentally but physically too. Making time for relaxation is so important and even more so at busier times. It gives your body and mind the chance to return to its restful state, lowering blood pressure, boosting immunity and repairing the body.
When you allow this simple practice into your life you will notice some amazing changes! You will feel better, productivity increases, things will seem easier, your relationships improve and you will feel happier.
For some, you may be able to make space daily for this. Simple things like taking 30 mins for a nice bath or reading a chapter of a book in a quiet space, lighting a candle and just watching the flame as you focus on your breathing all create a place of relaxation and give that much needed break.
Alternatively, if you need help to do this then you can visit me for an Access Bars session. In just a one hour session, it helps you to relax and is scientifically proven to slow your brain waves down. It provides that much needed 'reset' to the mind. If you are a business owner this could be a really amazing way to help not only yourself but also your employees.
How can you take time to relax today?
