Meditating daily is one of the best things you can do for your body and mind. It provides relaxation, but also works out your brain.


Discover your feelings

Become emotionally literate. Label your feelings, rather than labeling people or situations.


Being connected 24/7

Being connected 24/7 isn’t really necessary. One of the simplest ways to restore a little serenity in the midst of a hectic week is to turn off the phone.

Unplug your land line after dinner, too. You’d be surprised how simply turning off the ringer can bring instant calm.


Be positive

Speaking negative things may put the other person down or even generate a negative vibe. Talking about positive things will not only generate a better vibe but also help you in having better conversations.


Set aside time to relax each day

Some people prefer to relax right before bed to help fall asleep. Others relax first thing in the morning to start the day refreshed and revitalized.

Consider if there are times in the day when your stress level is high or your energy is low. These can be ideal times to schedule in a brief relaxation session.


Relaxing energies

Being out in nature is relaxing for a reason. We have a symbiotic relationship with mother earth.

If you want tangible proof; be aware of your inner body while touching a tree.

Consciously let the muscles relax every time you feel them tighten, which might be all day long to start with. It is almost impossible to feel stressed if your muscles are relaxed.



Firm footing when giving a massage

When giving a massage, have the person receiving the massage lie on her belly on a firm, comfortable surface, such as a floor mat or firm bed. Make sure you can reach her whole back without straining your own.
