Destressing is what I would like to rant about this day.
Hello there my friend!
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
How are you? Are you alright?
I hope and pray with all my heart and soul that you are alright! I truly truly do because if you are on the internet reading about stress chances are you may not be alright.
If you are not alright, I pray that I will be able to help you in some small, or big, way to move yourself to a better place.
The other day I read some ridiculous article on 20 Scientifically-Backed Ways to Destress Right Now.
The reason I call it ridiculous is because of the 'Scientifically-Backed' jargon in the title of the article.
Seriously, writers ought to be ashamed of themselves when they use those kind of terms because it gives the illusion that it is all fact. It's not fact necessarily all the time, and it is just a trap to get you to believe some stuff that quite honestly may not be true.
I digress, my apologies, and so early in the post too.
If you really want to destress the most important thing you can do besides eat a box of yummy chocolates is to quiet your mind so that you can see the reality of your safety.
The reality of your safety is that no matter what happens you will be alright. BAM!
That is the ticket right there; to know deep down in your soul that you will be alright no matter what happens.
Stress so often causes us to think that we will not be alright because our mind is racing and racing with the worry of the absolute worst possible outcome, which never ever ever ever comes to pass. Okay, so a little exaggeration on the never ever but you get my meaning, don't you?
Destressing is actually a body and mind process. This procedure includes sitting quietly concentrating on the breath, which brings the racing mind to a halt, and cultivates a focus of the mind on the body.
When anyone learns to sit in this quietness regularly, and for periods of five to thirty minutes, he or she will know what it feels like to be calm, destressed, and safe.
If an individual practices this often, he or she can and will be destressed anytime and anywhere.
The racing mind of worry is just faith that the worst will happen, and this is a very detrimental habit.
This hurtful habit can be replaced with practice of the very opposite, which is a calm mind and body.
Practice makes progress, and progress creates near perfection.
If you don't know how to quiet your mind try this meditation video I created and just focus on and listen to the sounds.
That's my rant!
