What if you could change your life in under two minutes? It’d be great, who wouldn’t want to make that happen, right?
We can refocus, clarify, and de-stress our minds to be more meaningful and do just that. Wellness gurus share their expertise re-focusing with more meaningful results, and I want to share this wisdom with you. It begins with mindfulness and adding positive responses.
The mini meditation is easy to do anywhere. On the in breath, think ‘I am’ and on the the out breath think ‘at peace’. If other thoughts intrude, just dismiss them and return to the meditation and mantra. Re-focusing, keep repeating and return to the mantra whenever you need.
Do a burst of exercise, like 50 jumping jacks, followed by a minute of stretching. Doing fifty jumping jacks in a minute releases endorphins (feel-good hormones) and fights cortisol (stress hormone). Your mind also shifts its focus from the stressors and focuses on the exercise at hand. Move, stretch, do a yoga pose or qigong.
Remember to laugh. Laughter releases endorphins or “feel good” hormones. These hormones lead to feelings of euphoria, which aid in reducing stress and even decreasing pain.
Be curious, look with new eyes, feel the air on your skin, if you’re eating or drinking, notice the taste or texture.
Be mindful and cast your attention on new sense perceptions.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try listening to some calming music. Studies have found that playing relaxing music has a positive effect on the brain and body by lowering lower blood pressure and reducing your levels of cortisol, a hormone linked to stress. If music isn’t your thing, try listening to the sounds of rain falling or ocean waves.
Write it out. Sit down and write your thoughts out out as quickly as you think of them. It’s the equivalent of venting. Then rip the paper in as many pieces as you’d like, letting the negative energy out as you do so. Then throw it all away.
Take a moment and have a cup of tea. The ritual itself is comforting and calming. You might even let warm water run over your hands and let the stress go. It’s very relaxing.
In the office? Take a break and turn your attention to clouds outside, walking or looking out the window. Clouds change shape and move just like your thoughts, and every several minutes give you a new perspective.
Running late in traffic? Focus on what situations you can control, and accept what you can’t control. Then focus on remaining calm and practice acceptance.
It only takes two minutes of being present in a moment to create positive impact, more meaningful relationships and mindfulness moving forward.
Here’s to more bliss and less stress.
