Feeling Tense?

Has life got you feeling a little tense lately?

Over the past few months, I have been running here, going there, doing this, doing that and at times I find myself wishing I were laying in a hammock on the beach, sipping some sangria. No where important to be with absolutely NOTHING to do but lay there and take in the salt water breeze.

Ya feel me?

Don't get me wrong, I love my life and I'm having a blast, even with my somewhat chaotic schedule. That's a little bit of life, right? However, when we find ourselves so caught up in the day-to-day that we can't find time to stop and smell the roses, so to speak, it can take quite a toll on our nervous system and in turn our bodies and energy.

The constant buzz of go, go , GO can be exhausting.

Imagine that you are being chased by zombies trying to eat you. Scary! - That gets rated pretty high on the stress chart, yes?

Now, imagine that you are in the car, driving to work, and you get stuck in traffic. Annoying but not as high on the stress chart as being chased by human eating zombies.

Did you know that your nervous system doesn't care what type of stressful situation you might be in? To your body, stress is stress and your sympathetic nervous system which controls your "fight or flight" responses can't distinguish any difference between zombies or traffic.

Crazy, right?

This means that even if you have been experiencing small amounts of tension on the stress scale, things that you may not consider to necessarily be high stress, your body is still reacting to high stress.

So how do we quickly calm our nervous systems so we can function, have more energy, and not feel so bogged down by the stress of everyday life?

A simple breathing meditation.

The power of breath is incredible and can relax the nervous system in a matter of seconds.

It is the fastest way to calm your body, relax you, and give you an extra boost of energy. Sound good?
