Taking action to create awareness of each sensory organ in situations of anxiety or stress, such as controlling one’s breathing, may help individuals reduce the pressure. Connecting with nature corresponds with one’s wellbeing emotionally and physically. Taking a step outside may lower thoughts of anger, fear, and stress, as well as reducing heart rate and muscle tension. Meditation has proven to be a powerful stress reliever by finding one’s focal point. Mastering proper control is a key to life.
- When we switch from short and shallow chest breathing to long and deep belly breathing, we activate our relaxation response which tells our body that we are safe and sound from any physical danger
- Research has shown that being in nature contributes to both our emotional wellbeing and our physical wellbeing
- Countless scientific studies have proven that meditation is a powerful antidote to stress
“While most of us know a yoga class, a good meditation session or a massage can do wonders in helping us to de-stress, the truth of the matter is it’s not always possible to find the time… as much as we promise ourselves we’ll definitely do it tomorrow.”
