A – sometimes taking some alone time where you sit with your thoughts, write stuff down, talk to yourself or even scream and shout can be very therapeutic….trust me it works. Remind yourself of everything that you’re thankful for, and why you do what you do …[you know your purpose in life]
B- while the idea of developing a regular meditation practice is not everyone’s cup of tea, doing some simple deep breathing for a couple of minutes a few times a day can work wonders… You literally focus on inhaling and exhaling, noticing how the breath feels as you inhale and exhale. Then try making your inhale & exhale last for 4 seconds each, you are guaranteed to feel clearer, calmer and more focused, thanks to the increased oxygen supply to your brain.
C – take a walk or exercise- take a ‘stress walk’ if you can- a brisk walk out in nature that starts out as a response to stress or anxiety will generally end up with you feeling energised and uplifted thanks to the increased oxygen circulating through your body and the beauty of nature.
D- there is something very therapeutic about taking the time to cleanse… cleansing is a simple but powerful age old ritual that when done mindfully, allows us to connect with our bodies. Make a point of allowing yourself the time to have a bath or shower using some beautifully scented shower gel, soap or bath salts. Take time to engage with every step of the process, the feel of the water on your skin, the fragrances and breathe.
