Happy January 4th everyone!!
As stated in the previous post, each month for 2016 will have a specific focus in order to #LiveIntentionally ! This month is all about wellness.
For January week 1 – It’s all about Mental Wellness
Mental Wellness is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
With this definition, I will share tips each day this week that will help reduce the stresses of life and will help you work productively.
Today is all about breathing
Breathing is one of the quickest easiest ways to relax, release stress and gain clarity to become more productive.
“Slow, deep breaths can help lower blood pressure and heart rate . For the fancy noses out there, try pranayama breathing, a yogic method that involves breathing through one nostril at a time to relieve anxiety. The technique’s supposed to work the same way as acupuncture, balancing the mind and body (and possibly eliminating the need for a tissue).”
Try this today and share your experience. Remember, every tip ties back to Living Intentionally. When we take the time to just breathe, we give ourselves to enjoy more things in the moment. We open ourselves up to give our best selves and because of this, we will do things with intent that will cause our lives to blossom!
Breathing opens yourself to God’s blessings.
Job 33:4“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Recognize the breath God has given you and live intently, on purpose and on fire for what HE has for your life!
