|Everyday we find situations, people and encounters that seem to cause our bodies to tense and our breathing to shorten. It isn't always easy to see that we contribute to the stress which we experience.
Remember it is much easier to nip something in the bud then to deal with stress after it flowers into physical symptoms or a bad mood. If you get into a funk sometimes it can last for days and it's often hard to break free of it. When you can catch the negative moment beginning you have a great shot at stopping it from taking you down. I've found these helpful for myself as well as my clients:
1) If you feel a certain mood beginning (ie depression, anger, discouragement) try to do something physical such as go running, swim, or even clean. It's good to do something that will tune up your nervous and glandular system. Even if you don't feel like doing this, you will feel better after you do.
2) There are two breathing exercises from yoga that are very helpful to cultivate a neutral mind. One is called Alternate nostril breathing and the other is called Breath of Fire. You can learn these from a yoga class or video or feel free to e-mail me.
