3 Top Tips for Stress-relief

Anxiety-relief, Stress/Anger Management sessions are available in Birchington & Whitstable, Kent and Harley Street, London W1.

If you have been put off meditation in the past, I would prefer you read the following with an open mind.  In fact, I would prefer you to think of the following technique as a stress relief strategy.  Meditation isn’t just about slowing the brainwaves, it is conclusively proven to boost your energy and vitality significantly.  Hormones re-balance, mood improves and relationships improve.  Whilst quietening the mind for a few minutes each day, you will be able to look back at the cumulative benefits in surprising ways.   Occasionally a moment of bliss, an inspiration or a higher state of consciousness becomes available to you.  Higher states of consciousness simply feel like freedom…freedom from the mind’s usual identity, nagging fears and concerns.

Tip 1.  Releasing negative emotions:  Deep relaxation is possible for everyone.  Become aware of any uncomfortable feelings in your body.   Sit calmly with them in a state of acceptance as you allow them to release.  All emotions that feel uncomfortable are caused by disruptions in your energy system that you have the power to release.   If you just sit still with an intention to allow the emotion to pass… it will.

Tip 2.  Yoga Breath:  Take Three conscious breaths. Allow yourself to focus on your breath and just notice inhaling and exhaling through the nose.  Inhale…pause and exhale.  For the first three breaths, push your breath all the way out.   The breath out stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax.

Tip 3.   Taoist Meditation Technique:   This is a fun Taoist technique that I personally use a lot.  Direct your focus back into the centre of your brain as if looking out through that space between your eyebrows.  Imagine you are a little Buddha sitting crossed-legged on a bed of cushions in the centre of your brain behind your eyebrows.  This stimulates the pineal gland, responsible for higher states of conscious.  If thoughts intrude, repeat a mantra such as ‘release and let go’.

The body can only take so much tension and stress before the body gives you a warning.  There are now hundreds of scientifically documented benefits, too numerous to mention here, that recommend meditation to support and maintain vibrant health and wellbeing.

Testimony from David Lynch:  “It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within.  This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness” And this level is deep within us all.”

12 Tips for Awesome Energy

12 Tips to Power Your Awesome Energy Lifestyle

1.  Find a new hobby that includes exercise.   Search for some form of exercise that you look forward to.  Experiment until you find a few things that you enjoy.  My personal favourites are:  Dancing, Classes in Body Balance, Yoga, Body Pump.   Swimming, cycling, badminton, playing outdoor games with kids: football, trampoline, shuttle ball.

2. Choose foods that feel energising.   Before you choose something, stop, pause consider….  tune into your intuition….

3. Stop obsessing about food and find a new focus to absorb you.

4.  Cut back on ‘mindless’ eating by choosing to only eat whilst sitting down in a relaxed setting.  Savour your food by appreciating the taste, texture, smell, touch and experience.

5. Eating a little of what you fancy might work for you.    Just keep in mind ‘processed’ sugary or fatty foods are going to drain your energy.   Remember in Tip 2 – Think BEFORE you eat – “is this going to energise me?”  Little and often is preferable to huge meals that crash your energy.

6. Every time you give into a habit you are making it stronger. Ask the question:” is this food helping me to create positive habits?” If the answer is no – ask yourself, “do I really need this?”

7. Get creative. Experiment with one brand new recipe each week, have fun with your food.  Include a little protein with each meal to stop your sugar levels, energy and moods crashing. I create 3 new recipes each week by receiving a box of salad ingredients with recipes from Abel & Co.

8. Stop eating when 3/4 full.  Get comfortable with leaving food on your plate.

9. As a guide, aim to eat 2-3 balanced meals with 2 smaller protein or fruit snacks. Make those meals more delicious by savouring each mouthful, deliberately and with complete mindfulness.

10. TV with adverts contain commercials that persuade you to eat junk and it is hypnotising you.  Advertisers know this, that is why they spend millions on adverts during peak viewing.  Instead spend the evening with something or someone you love – your family, pet, hobby, exercise, a good film (free from adverts) a new project, course or an uplifting book…with healthy happy feelings.  Take a look at my new book: 9 Simple Steps for Happiness, with quotes, quick tips and easy fun processes that help you to be a Healthier, Happier You!

11.  Prepare for sleep:  Keep a Journal to log your progress:  1.  Get on paper anything you are anxious about in order to clear your mind.  2.  Write three things you wish to achieve the following day.  3.  Write 3 things you appreciate about you, your partner, each child, parent and anyone who is upsetting you. This will have the effect of percolating over night with a more positive feeling.

12. Listen to a relaxation meditation as you drift off to sleep to soothe you into deep peaceful blissful sleep. I record bespoke hypnosis for many clients to aid sleep and deep relaxation.

Why Stress Less?

5 Reasons to Stress Less

Mindfulness is the latest skill to combat stress, that helps you to become more aware, to make sure you don’t let stressful thoughts run away with you.

1. Relaxing boosts your memory and helps you to make better decisions.  Studies have shown that prolonged stress kills brain cells in the hippocampus, impairing memory and decisions. Stress is now found to increase proteins in the brain linked to Alzheimers.

2. Relaxing eases acne.  It’s a vicious cycle: You’re stressed about that presentation at work, so you break out, and then you’re stressed about the breakout!  Stress increases sebum that can clog the pores in acne prone skin.

3. Relaxing keeps you safe from depression. The prolonged presence of the stress hormone cortisol can reduce levels of serotonin and dopamine triggering depression.

For tuition on Stress relief and Stress Management, book a private session to begin a relaxation practice that suits your personality and lifestyle: EFTMeditation, Mindfulness activities and  Relaxation recordings.

4. Relaxation improves your mood and relationship happiness.  You will feel less snappy, more chilled and in control of your choices with greater ease.

5. Stress makes you fat around your tummy.  Stress causes your body to produce cortisol which gets converted into fat if you do not exercise it off.

If you are needing some stress relief and stress management help, get in touch.  Suzi sees private clients one-to-one in Kent and London W1.

3 Quick Tips to Energise your Life

Vibrant Energy Lifestyle

Choose one of your favourite tips to energise your life:

1. Declutter your mind by listing three things you plan to achieve the following day.  Everything else, list under the headings ‘ To Delegate’ or ‘Universe’.

2. Breakthrough procrastination by breaking down large projects into small manageable parts and associating pleasure with anything you don’t want to do.

3. Get very clear about why you want to do something because these are your motivators.  To avoid inner conflict, make sure your desires are aligned with your values and beliefs.  

4.  Only have three tasks on your to-do list to inspire a feeling of ease and look forward to the satisfaction of achievement/accomplishment of finishing and completing these three tasks.

5.  Buy a present for someone (it can be anything little) and really savour the GIVING. Science has proven white blood cells increase when you give – so giving really is receiving with a boosted immune system for YOU too!

6. Take more oxygen into your whole body by breathing deeper into your diaphram instead of shallow breathing into your chest. Oxygen is energy – so BREATH mindfully and deeply. Accompany your breathing with some stretching or other exercise and you will be giving yourself a boost of endorphins that will give you that vibrant energy lifestyle!

7. Go for a ‘mindful’ walk – which means leaving your worries behind.  Each step you take can be mindful, deliberate and free.

8. Release stress by deliberately caring more about your energy and less about perfection.  You can reach for excellence when your energy is lined up with food feelings.  If you are feeling conflicted or overwhelmed, get help with short cut strategies to release stress, fatigue and increase vibrant energy.  In addition, make sure you are eating a selection of fruits, vegetables and superfoods, as well as a few of your favourite treats. If you are looking for easier ways to create a healthier, happier more fulfilled you – find out how by calling Suzi on 07836 635233 or email suzi@rapid-health.co.uk.
