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.”

Why Meditate?

2015-03-12-07.40.38Why Meditate?  Meditation is not only for improving health, it will enhance your ability to feel more calm and confident.

The secret is to limit yourself to no more than one or two 10-15 minutes each day.  Set your phone timer or choose a guided meditation.  By restricting the time you do it, it will make you want to do it for longer.  Instead you can make it your special treat – a blissful ‘you time’ of tranquility and inner peace.

Science has proven that even a few minutes practice each day re-trains your hormones out of the ‘exhausting’ stress response. The cumulative benefits of mindfulness and meditation are now being used for peak performance throughout the world.

Your body is either in a state of ‘stress’, or ‘healing’ – never both!   So if you want all the amazing benefits of meditation, give me a call now.  07836 635233

 

3 simple tips to replace anxiety with intuition

Here are my simple tips to replace anxiety with intuition

What is Intuition?   Your intuition is a kind of sixth sense, or gut instict, which will guide you towards things that help you to learn and grow along a successful path.  Whatever deeper purpose you have chosen to experience and contribute on Planet Earth, will become available to you and unfold.  As well as having access to the brain’s intuition based on all your experiences, you have access to a vast ocean of spiritual intuition beyond the logical or emotional ‘beta’ brainwave mind.

What is Anxiety and how is it a problem for you?  Anxiety is understood to be “false fear appearing real”.  In other words, it is an ‘imagined’ fear that we make up in our mind, based on past experiences and project them into the future.  Anxiety is therefore  an ‘imagined concern’ about something that hasn’t yet happened and might never happen.  It IS a problem for you because fear wakes up your ‘amygdala’ activating fear and aggression, so you lose a calm, capable perspective.

Negative effects of Anxiety   Anxiety blocks performance by reducing inner calm, creativity and concentration.  Anxiety shuts down your intuition as your intellect can be manipulated by fear.

Replacing anxiety with intuition

  1. Letting go of the past and future is the first step to moving away from anxiety.
  2. Replace anxiety provoking questions for calm, capable, confidence creating questions.  For example, instead of “what if I fail, or I’m useless/not good enough?”  replace with “I am enough, I’m fine, I can give it a go, or I’m improving”
  3. Practice being mindful in the ‘now’ by reserving 5-20 mins of time for meditation practice.  Mindfulness is even easier to slot into your day because it simply relies on your ability to take 50 or so conscious breaths throughout the day.

Benefits of Meditation is a practice of slowing down your brainwaves from beta to alpha, so that you have the space to STOP – PAUSE – LISTEN…to an inner stillness with greater access to your intuition.  Some meditation styles meditate on a question.  This is Quality ‘you’ time – and as you focus on your breath, word or phrase, question or imagery, you will be accessing a calm space of hightened intuition.   If this is new for you, your thoughts might speed up at first but within a few days, at the most a week with daily practice of two twenty minute sessions, you will be surprised and delighted with measurable progress.   Not only will you have reserves of vibrant energy available, you will have more in control of stress, anger and depression with hundreds of scientifically validated benefits that enhance contentment, inner peace and happiness.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your thoughts, body and feelings in present moment awareness. In other words, accessing the ‘Power of Now’.

WHEN TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP  If you feel stuck with anxious thoughts that spoil your inner peace, relationship happiness or confidence, there are great techniques available that can replace fear based beliefs or post traumatic stress symptoms.

10 Tips to Boost Positivity

 “A Miracle is a shift in perspective”  Marianne Williamson

Changing just one negative belief to a positive belief can change your life”.     How do you think your life would improve if you believed ‘everything will turn out for the best’.   You may know someone who has the ability to turn any problem into a solution, any crisis or setback into an opportunity for reflection, greater awareness and even greater achievement, inner peace and happiness.   “All problems are problems of the imagination and all solutions are solutions of the imagination.” Christopher Howard

1. Mindfulness:  The following is an exercise that gives you power over your moods with control over your reactions.  If this is entirely new to you, have a little contest with your friends/colleagues, or just yourself:  The rules:  A whole day with no moaning, whinging, criticising, complaining.  No blaming, defending or excuses – Just enjoy with curiosity a ‘relaxing’ and very ‘interesting’ awareness.   Could be amusing?   Let me know how you get on…

2. Playful    When was the last time you played?  As a child?  Last year?   What would happen if you spent a whole day taking life much less seriously.  Try it and see.     There is a lovely little family saying: “those who play together, stay together.”  If you are a parent:  you will be giving your kids the best gift if you devote some time to play with them – it helps to find something that you can genuinely enjoy too.

3. Nature  Research published in 2013 in the journal Global Environmental Change, found that people are significantly happier in natural environments.   Look for ways to get out doors in the coming week – notice how much better you feel.

4. Chocolate  Swiss researchers found that eating 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate every day for two weeks reduced stress hormones, including cortisol, in people who were highly stressed.  If your weight is healthy and you have a friendly relationship with food, a little of what you fancy can be the perfect antidote to lifting your mood.

5. Music & Dance   Studies  in the Journal of Positive Psychology, reported students who listened to “happy” music, experienced elevations in mood.  Why do you think the shops and restaurants play music?  You can also lift your mood whilst dancing.  This is one of my personal favourites.

6. Happiness Notebook    Studies have found a strong correlation between feeling thankful and happiness.  This single task has been found to ease depression.   Choose anything you can genuinely be thankful for,  as research has proven that in as little as 21 days this habit will positively affect your mood.   An attitude of gratitude is one of the key ingredients to increasing happy feeling hormones.

7. Take 10 ~Are you Feeling irritable? It could be a sign of sleep deprivation, or stressful habits.    Just 15 minutes of meditation will improve your mood.

8. Volunteer/Helping Others  Researchers from the University of Exeter found that volunteering and helping others can boost happiness, ease depression and create fulfilment.   People feel healthier and happier when they are making a positive difference.  Self worth also improves.

9. Brighter Side    Looking at the ‘sunny’ side of a situation can change everything. It’s your perspective that predicts whether you will be a happy or a lonely bitter person.

10. Start something new – begin something/anything – just do something different!  When I feel overwhelmed – I declutter an area, my bag, or drawer. I might clean out my car or declutter my filing on my computer or clear my desk in my office. This method always gives me a boost of energy.

Always be learning something new – browse through U-Tube, begin a new fitness or dance class, a new book, discover a new hobby by trying a few things that trigger your interest.  Turn off the TV – GET ACTIVE experimenting with activities that interest you.
