Everyone deserves PEACE, LOVE, and JOY...
A Daily Stress Management Practice Will Greatly Enhance Your Life
Building a daily stress management practice can greatly improve the quality of our life and the lives of those around us. You can't depend on those around you to bring you peace, love and joy. BUT you can depend on yourself and your daily stress management practices to do just that! Just as you care for your body daily your mental/emotional self needs attention and there is no age limit on this.
If you are caring for children, your time is especially precious and so is the mental/ emotional health of you and the children. Teaching children is best accomplished by doing the practices with them. As they see you "zone out" they will learn to do it for themselves and love it.
Studies show great improvements in behavior, learning and attitude for all ages when daily stress management plans are incorporated into a lifestyle practice.
Start with a plan. There are many ways I like to destress so in my planner I have a list that I can check off daily. I do not do everything on my list each day, but I do somethings each day and I do each one at least weekly. I set my timer, so I stay on track. I have grown this practice from 15 minutes daily to 1 hour daily. If I do not get to it each day, I am generous to forgive myself. By using this list, I do get them in almost daily. It is such a powerful tool for your mental/emotional health that once you experience its benefits your will only want more.
Recommended Daily Stress Management Practices
Connect to your higher source through prayer and meditation. Prayer is asking for what you need, and meditation is quieting your mind to hear. Do both for 5 to 10 minutes daily. Once you get used to this you will WANT MORE time. The rewards of peace and enlightenment are great.
Exercise is necessary to reduce stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Blood Type O's & B's need more vigorous exercise at least 6 times a week for 40 minutes to reduce adrenaline. Blood Type A & AB's benefit from stretching exercises like yoga or Pilates as well as walking at least 4 times a week for 40 minutes to reduce cortisol.
Keeping a journal is beneficial as it allows our brains to better organize. Most all modern geniuses like Albert Einstein have kept a journal so the question is; do all geniuses journal OR where they geniuses because they kept a journal? Regardless it is a powerful practice. I bought my six-year-old granddaughter a journal which she uses every day for any and all of her creations and she loves to share it with me.
Breathing exercises remind us how to breathe throughout the day. Breathing exercises can stop a panic attack dead in its tracks. Find one on YouTube that you like and put that into your morning routine.
