Why is it that when you feel tired, you can’t seem to relax and unwind? You find it hard to sleep. Stress builds up at work, and you never seem to get on top of it. You start to feel run down, suffer from headaches or low grade ‘flu, backache or general malaise. You’re too tired to go out, and that takes the joy out of life.
The stresses of our modern world place a lot of pressure on body and soul. It’s not just the fact that you feel out of control in the workplace, with too much to do, too little support, difficult colleagues or the boss from hell. It’s not just that you don’t feel fulfilled at work or at home. Or worry about how to pay your bills. These are just the obvious stressors in your life.
There are other factors at play as well.
Understanding how they affect you, and what you can do about them is the key to restoring your inner balance, and feeling relaxed and joyful again. Here are a few tips.
1. Move a little. We spend too much time sitting at a desk hunched over a computer screen. Get up every 30 minutes or so, have a stretch or take a short walk to the water cooler. Even a little exercise like this revives you.
2. While you’re at the water cooler, drink more water. Many people today are dehydrated. Water flushes the wastes and toxins from your system, which otherwise would build up and add unnecessary stress to your body.
3. That little trip to the water cooler does something else as well. It gets you away from your computer, if only for a few minutes. Smart phones, WiFi, as well as televisions and microwave ovens all generate electromagnetic (EMF) radiation, another source of stress. There are many products on the market now which protect you from EMF – EMF shields for your phone, pendants for your person.
4. Breathe! Your body relaxes every time you close your eyes, and every time you breathe out. So here’s a simple technique to release built up tension: Open your eyes, breathe in slowly; close your eyes and breathe out. Repeat 3 or 4 times until you feel relaxed and refreshed.
5. Sleep. Get 7 hours at the right time of night. The key hormones that repair, restore and rejuvenate you peak between 11:30pm and 2:30am, so make sure you’re sound asleep by 11:30pm so they can get to work for you. It’s also the best time for your brain to flush out the toxins and wastes of the day.
