Ten easy ways to catch your breath and get back on track
Stress overload! Stress impacts your health and wellness. Have you ever been in a situation where you have so many things/jobs on the go at once that even if one small aspect of life shifts, everything else appears to tumble down almost in slow motion? Have you also noticed that the last small detail is not usually a huge life changing moment? More likely it is just the final straw to an already full stress bucket, the proverbial “straw that breaks the camel’s back”! The timing of the melt down is yet another raw nerve it is never at the most convenient time or place.
Everyone knows that if you have a job to get done, you give it to a busy person, because they will ensure that it gets done. Unfortunately, it is the busy people who are also the ones that often forget to say that little word…’No’. They feel compelled to take on more and more tasks until the overload becomes a heavy burden. The busy person is also most likely to be a perfectionist and one who is unlikely to delegate, because let’s face it that is why they get the extra jobs in the first place.
It is important to nurture yourself, to ensure that your stress load is manageable and does not cause you a debt that has to be repaid by your compromised health. The world will give you a constant source of extra stuff to do, like the tide it can be never ending, however like the tide you have to be attuned to the flow of life and nature.
Learn to be aware of your body’s many signals to slow down, to take a breath, use techniques and symbols that give you back the remote control of your life, so that you can use the pause button and regain your life energy and health.
Ten tops tips to pause, de-stress and energise: –
- Learn to say no, when no is appropriate.
- Enjoy a hot bath, each evening use candles for light and add an essential oil that nurtures and soothes. Totally relax and unwind, maybe set this time for mediation.
- Place a photo of your best holiday snap at your work station, when you are feeling overloaded, pause and look at that photo, remember the fun time it was and reconnect with that feeling, then recommence your work.
- When finding yourself feeling really angry or pent up, stop! Move one step backward and one step to the side, now count to ten and then consider the issue again.
- Give yourself permission to not always be perfect, do your best on the day.
- Have regular massage, yoga or kinesiology sessions to reduce stress build up.
- Enjoy a 10-minute stroll in the sunshine each day.
- Allocate time to relax and unwind with friends and family.
- Use colour to uplift and inspire.
- Smell the roses not just see the roses.
