Habits and routines

 

Habits or routines are funny things. We can sometimes think they are unhelpful. And yet without the daily practise of playing a musical instrument for example we cannot hope to realise the full potential of ourselves or of the instrument. It’s the same with meditation. Once a week is better than nothing but for true mastery of our minds we must meditate daily. And that’s where the value of a routine becomes evident. When we meditate at the same time and in the same place each day we get supported by this. So develop a routine or a habit that will help you gain greater insight and understanding.

 

Tired Woman's Tonic

My Tired Woman’s Tonic!

 

That’s right.

If you are stressed, tired and/or in poor health these 3 techniques, my Tired Woman’s Tonic, take less than 5 minutes a day. They are JUST what you need.

 

Tired Woman’s Tonic:

1.  Brain Tapping
This technique is used on crash victims in some countries as it stops someone going into shock. It will improve brain function and activate your innate healing wisdom.


2.
 Abdominal Breathing

I first learned this in yoga classes 40 years ago. It will relax and energise you.


3.
 Gratitude Practice

My Dad often suggested that I “count my blessings”. Gratitude can lift our mood and change our vibration so that miracles can pop into our day. Give it a try!!

You too can get back to living a life of purpose and enchantment.

One technique is to repeat words or suggestions in your mind to relax and reduce muscle tension. For example, you may imagine a peaceful setting and then focus on controlled, relaxing breathing, slowing your heart rate, or feeling different physical sensations, such as relaxing each arm or leg one by one.

Another technique is to focus on slowly tensing and then relaxing each muscle group. This helps you focus on the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. You become more aware of physical sensations.

One method of progressive muscle relaxation is to start by tensing and relaxing the muscles in your toes and progressively working your way up to your neck and head. You can also start with your head and neck and work down to your toes. Tense your muscles for at least five seconds and then relax for 30 seconds, and repeat.

Visualisation is another relaxation technique. You form mental images to take a journey to a peaceful, calming place or situation.

During visualisation, try to use as many senses as you can, including smell, sight, sound and touch. If you imagine relaxing at the ocean, for instance, think about the smell of salt water, the sound of crashing waves and the warmth of the sun on your body. You may want to close your eyes, sit in a quiet spot and loosen any tight clothing.

Relaxation is the next ingredient in our healthy, happy life recipe.

Our bodies respond to stress in predictable ways – the fight or flight response. When the stress is gone the body automatically returns to a balanced, resting state. However for some people who experience prolonged stress, the body does not fully return to this balanced state. Instead, the fight or flight response continues to work “overtime” which can result in negative consequences to their health.

Relaxation helps to quieten the body’s response to stress. It can prevent some of the “wear and tear” that comes from prolonged fight-or-flight reactions. Unfortunately the relaxation response is not automatic. It’s a skill that needs to be learned and practiced.

Next time we’ll look at some of the ways we can go about this.
