BRING YOUR LIFE INTO BALANCE
Do you multitask in order to free up time for a mini break, and then feel like you need a holiday when you return?
Maybe you get up before dawn to have some alone time or stay up late even though you need to get up early the next morning.
At the start of the day do you focus on accomplishing certain tasks?
As you try to catch up do unexpected things arise and you lose focus, then the end of the day your list of tasks seems longer?
You can’t please everyone, instead, take care of yourself first and foremost. It’s important to know your truth and be able to take a stand on what you need to do to be true to yourself.
When you feel a great amount of stress and demands, it’s almost impossible to make time for what you need or want in your life. This is why setting boundaries is so important.
If you keep your boundaries strong, they will protect you and take care of you no matter how difficult or challenging your life can become.
Set realistic expectations with yourself that allow for unexpected delays. If you think something will take one and a half hours to do, give yourself two.
When we meditate regularly, and reduce our stress levels, our hormones balance out and we feel less reactive, less defensive and more balanced.
Meditation also triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, which enables us to rest and recover from stress.
Yoga helps us to focus on the present moment. When we bring our awareness to the breath, we deepen our concentration and improve our coordination and ability to balance. When we become more present then we also become more adaptable, and much less reactive. Living fully in the present moment is empowering.
Yoga supports a life of balance, flexibility and change. As well as offering a range of mind and body remedies that will support you in balancing your life. Not only is yoga a means of meditation and exercise, but it has other benefits too.
Studies have found that a consistent yoga practice improved depression and boosts serotonin levels, the feel-good hormone. Researchers have found that eight weeks of daily yoga significantly improved sleep quality for people who suffered from sleeping disorders.
Even if you only practice yoga once in a while, the benefits will come to you.
That which you dream of, is that which you can achieve.
I suggest downloading the 1 giant mind app onto your phone and give it a try. The app is free and easy to use. Good luck!
