The Art of Relaxing

Chill out dude! - the art of relaxing

Why it’s so important to relax.

Life can feel a little crazy and overwhelming at times and with over 2 million Australian’s suffering from anxiety in any given year, it’s so important we do all we can to reduce our stress levels and take time out to nurture and protect our mental health and wellbeing.

Stress can cause us to have headaches, indigestion, sweaty palms, a racing heart, shallow breathing, feel irritable, nervous, depressed; the list goes on.

Taking time out to relax each day helps keep our stress levels down, helps us get a better night’s sleep, helps improve our mood, memory and concentration and helps us lead an overall happier life.

Relaxing is easy, right? But how do I do it again?

Taking some time out to relax everyday seems simple, but when life starts to get in the way we can end up forgetting or foregoing.

There are many things we can do in our day to help us relax.

Why not try going for a walk, learn yoga or meditation, watch a movie or enjoy your favourite show, take a warm bath, listen to some quiet music or read a book.

10 minutes to relaxation central!

Daily meditation can help make us more resilient to stress.

10 minutes is all you need do the following breathing and mindfulness exercises to help relax and stay on top of stress and anxiety.

Take a comfortable position, making sure your spine is straight and have your hands resting comfortably on your lap or beside you. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.

Inhale for four counts, hold for two and then exhale for four counts. Repeat the process ten times.

Relax into your normal breathing rhythm and focus on where you feel your breath the most. Whether in your chest, stomach, nostrils or above your lip; keep your mind focussed on the breath and focus on the sensations of the breath.

You will notice thoughts come into your mind. Acknowledge these thoughts, take note of each one, smile and let them float by like clouds as you bring your attention back to your breath.

Your thoughts will keep coming in, again acknowledge and take note of each one and then let them pass as you again bring your awareness back to your breath.

Continue the meditation for 10 minutes or as long as you have, then wriggle your fingers and toes and smile as you open your eyes. You’ve just competed a wonderful mindfulness meditation.

LIVE BRIGHT, SMILE BRIGHT!
