When someone asked you “how’s life”, do you answer with either “busy” or “stressed”? Between soldiering on, going hard or going home and “making sweat your best accessory’ (yes I got this from a fitness blog), valuing time to stop, reflect, contemplate and connect has fallen by the wayside in todays frantic society.

Relaxing to many means a glass of wine, a netflix binge or scrolling through Facebook. Whilst these things might help you put on a chastity belt to the outside world they are still stimulating the mind so there are no physiological effects that one’s health and sanity can actually benefit from.

For many relaxing feels like laziness, restoring peace is infested with feelings of guilt and connecting to yourself (for many) sounds like a luxury only hippy’s indulge in.

Did you know that many people find it hard to lose weight, not because they have no will power but because their bodies are in a chronically stressed state!!! This stress creates hormone imbalances leading to an outcome of a near impossibility in shifting that weight!!

In today’s podcast we’ll be sharing:

  • Why valuing stillness or relaxing is crucial to your health and/or  healing
  • How to create more fulfilment in your life
  • How some of your habits can be destructive rather than constructive

Balance is the new black because everyone looks good when they feel relaxed, refreshed and connected to the heart of life. It’s time we start to value down time and understand the universal laws of balance.
This podcast will also share a few ways how to find your way to discovering the ancient art of stillness, contemplation and actually feeling life.
Mastering this art can help you in all areas of your life.

Some of the best ways to regain equilibrium, balance and really benefit from the physiology of relaxation are:

  •  Take some time out to meditate
  • Restorative Yoga or Yin Yoga
  • Take a long warm bath, whilst enjoying the aroma of your favourite essential oils or meditating
  • Take a decent holiday where you can relax, unwind and let go of the mind chatter
  • See a professional who can help you work through
  • Enjoy some  gardening
  • Limit stimulants such as sugar, coffee (caffein in general) and alcohol
