Did you know that feeling stressed, anxious and depressed can cause physical illness like backache, headache, stiff neck, fatigue, weight gain/loss etc.???
Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act.
Hence, be mindful of what you think and talk about yourself and others.
Here are some simple and effective ways to get rid of stress and negative feelings instantly:
Try alternate nostril breathing. Sit in a comfortable place, hold the right thumb over the right nostril and inhale deeply through the left nostril. At the peak of inhalation, close off the left nostril with the ring finger, and then exhale through the right nostril. Carry on the same, few times until you feel relaxed.
BBFF technique gives you instant relaxation. Write about all the negative/stressful issues in your life in a piece of paper. Burn in fire /bury in earth/ flush in water or freeze it. Put the paper in a container of water and freeze it.
3.Declutter your home/office
Neuro scientists have found that working and living in a place that is messy all the time, creates stress in the mind. Hence, spend few minutes each day to clean your work station and home.
Visualise yourself being surrounded by Orange color or look at orange coloured things. It is a color that boosts your creativity and opens the mind. Inhale orange colour and exhale black color.
You may also look at flower/plant photographs as flowers are nature healers.
5.Forgive and forget
If you feel constantly negative or stressed then its possible that you are holding on to past that does not serve you anymore. Let go and forgive people that hurt you and also seek forgiveness from those you hurt. There is no great feeling in this world than forgiving and forgetting.
6.Let go of gossip and negative talks
Gossiping and talking negative about yourself or others brings down your stamina and pulls you to a lower energy level. Every day spend atleast one hour talking and thinking only about positive things. Challenge yourself to be 100% positive at this time. Then gradually increase it to 1 day a week. Positive thinking makes your mind, body and soul blissful and light.
