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.

Meditation - It only works if we do

 

Meditation helps us to create a happy, healthy and peaceful life that is good for ourselves and good for others. It calms and quietens our minds and helps us to be less reactive. But it only works if we do. In other words we have to put in the effort to start and then to establish a daily meditation practice. Once a week is better than nothing but it’s nowhere near enough if we want to truly master our minds. And of course it’s important to find the type of meditation that we’re comfortable with. My personal preference is Vipassana, however you might prefer a guided meditation, a mantra based practice or a visualisation practise.

So long as you’re consistent then the benefits will come. But there is one thing to beware of. Try not to crave after a particular type of outcome eg bliss, divine guidance, or anything else. You’re simply meditating and what comes is simply what comes.

 

 

10 tips for holiday health

Where did the year go?

 

where did the year go?

 

Suddenly it is nearly Christmas, and the end of the year is here. So we thought we’d share our Holiday Tips with you.

 

10 Tips for Holiday Health

Tip 1: Drink plenty of water

Water is essential to the health of our cells. Get into a good routine during the holidays so that this can be continued once work resumes.


Tip 2: Do the Brain Tapping (Cortices technique) twice daily

You want to be just as fresh on your holidays as you are at work. So don’t let this simple routine disappear once the holidays start. See our Brain Tapping instructions.


Tip 3: Get plenty of rest

Allow a few days at the start of the holiday to go at a slower pace. Holidays are a great time to catch up on some extra sleep.


Tip 4: Eat plenty of salads and fruit

The warmer weather makes it so easy to eat healthily. And this will encourage losing any of the weight you may have gained over the colder months.


Tip 5: Do more exercise than you normally do

Daily exercise of 30 minutes will slow down your rate of aging, according to new research. Extra fitness is good insurance for your return to work.


Tip 6: Cut down the alcohol

Ensure you have two alcohol-free days (AFDs). Remember that alcohol is very dehydrating and hence tends to age us more quickly. Too much is also disastrous for our brain.


Tip 7: Spend quality time with friends and family

Depending on how busy you’ve been you may have neglected some important relationships. Now is the time to reconnect. If the relationship is challenging, spend some time thinking about the best approach.

Meeting our emotional needs is the key to good health. Another key is accepting the choices other people make.


Tip 8: Listen to your body

Remember that as we are self-healing whatever is happening right now in your physical body is your body’s attempt to keep you healthy. While it can be a nuisance to be having symptoms of pain, etc, listen to what your body is telling you.

Is there something that you haven’t dealt with?
What can you do right now to improve this condition?

Tip 9: Do something to exercise the mind

Crosswords, Sudoku, brain teasers etc are great for the mind. What activities do you enjoy that keep you mentally alert? Make time for them.


Tip 10: Connect to Spirit/God/Universe

Spend time thinking about your life in relation to the bigger picture. Are you clear about your life’s purpose? What could you be doing in the next 12 months to feel more connected to something greater than yourself?

Enjoy the holiday period!

Make the most of the time so that you return to work 
fit and re-energised.
And finally, HAVE LOTS OF FUN.
After all, you are on holidays!

 

Wishing you a peaceful and loving Christmas and holiday period.

Much love,
Kathleen and Ian

Meditation Tip

before you start meditation

 

Before you start to meditate it can help if you take a few slow, steady, deep breaths with your eyes closed. This will help calm your mind and ground you for your meditation. Breathe in and out through your nostrils and just be aware of the depth and speed of your breath – slowly does it for the best results.

 

 

It takes time

 

Meditation Tip

 

Meditation takes time

 

Be realistic with the amount of time you set aside for daily meditation. Meditation is neither a torture test nor a marathon. It’s okay to start with 10 minutes each day and then slowly build up to whatever length of time feels comfortable for you. Remember that you are re-training your brain and that this takes time, persistence and patience.
