Stress Buster

A stress buster for me is taking a walk and talking to Jesus. He listens and I know I can lay all my burdens of life with Him and I know He can do what is for my best with what I tell Him. My connection with Him takes out the stress of life knowing He doesn't ask me to do anything that isn't for my health or my well being. That makes me happy and free knowing I can let go and Let God control my life,

Jin Shin Jyutsu for Weight Loss

I started Jin Shin Jyutsu, a Japanese form of hands-on healing, because I was fascinated by its effects on my mood and energy.
After two weeks of daily practice (10 minutes or so), I noticed I had lost around 3 kgs or so. This was when I started taking Jin Shin Jyutsu even more seriously. It can be a great help for almost any psychological and/or physical issue and is a beautiful art as well.

Completely relax in the bath with deep breathing and a book

Simple breathing exercises in the bath helps me to unwind after a long day. I draw a nice warm bath, light some candles, add some epsom salts for my exercised muscles, and just close my eyes and focus on my breath. You could call it meditation if that doesn't stress you out as to whether you are doing it right. My main goal is just to let go of all my thoughts and just "be in the bath." After I feel completely relaxed, I dry my hands off on a washcloth and read a book until I'm ready to get out.

I spend about 15 mins in prayer/meditation then I boot up my laptop, spread my throw on the lvg rm rug and find at least 1 short SP video that I can do b4 I shower. I don't even drink coffee 1st thing anymore. Now that really amazes my hubby!

Meditate before you go workout

Do you want to work out, but you've decided your not in a good mood to go, or are tired now, or have no one to go with? Wahhhh...I'm sure we've all been there at some point. This is a way I get over it and find inner motivation.

The Secret of meditation

As counter-intuitive as it sounds, the secret to successful meditation is to meditate without having any expectation whatsoever for anything. To simply sit, in the now, and peacefully work at nothing, no thoughts. Being gentle with yourself dovetails into having no expectation. Let thoughts and dramas pass.

You will find that, over time, you are more calm and generally happier. Remember, no expectation of success. It creates arbitrary ego based goals.

An Old But Wise Mantra

You may have seen this many times, but have you ever tried it? Suggestion: The first thing to say to yourself when you open your eyes in the morning, and the last thing you say before going to sleep... "Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better." Say it, think it, believe it.

(Quote from Émile Coué de Chatâigneraie.)

Visualize Success

I use visualization to help me. When I see something about someone that I admire I visualize myself obtaining it (defined armes, strong core, etc). I also research it to determine what path is best to obtain my goals and visualize myself on various points of the path. It works!

Castor oil packs & relaxing music

I do a castor oil pack nightly at bedtime. While doing them I turn on a relaxing playlist on my iPod. I wake up feel rejuvinated. I'm also pretty alert during the day.

Chime Time

To keep from eating mindlessly, I've set my cell phone alarm to chime at three critical times during the day. When it chimes, I stop whatever I'm doing and silently recite one of my goals or give myself a pep talk. It has saved my from junking out more than once.

LETTING GO OF THE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

Meditation is a great release! The more I listen to
meditation music opposed to music with lyrics and a
fast rhymtic beat, it is easier to let go of negative emotions
and breathe! It is so cleansing!

Try mindfulness

I use mindfulness meditation to help me step away from negativity and look at it more objectively. It's helped a lot to control frustration and to stay on track.

Snack time as Tea time

Snack does not mean grab & gulp. Get a teapot and set a proper place with tea cup. Set out an allowable snack, sit, rest, pray, meditate and nibble.
