Stressed who me? No, I am a massage therapist. I teach yoga and meditation. I teach people how to relax. RELAX!!! So easy to say and so hard to do. YES. I am stressed. The guy in front of me making me late for work. My kids...another time.
We are all living in a time of fast time. Quick, quick, quick, let us do more, spend more, worry more and fill our day. One more email to check, one more tweet to send. One more person to text.
One day I was teaching a yoga class and someone asked my husband, who was also in the class, if I ever got stressed. He laughed out loud. Then quickly regained his composure and said...oh never. After his nose stopped growing, I continued the class. I teach this and I forget or don't think or don't take time.
We need to STOP. We need to REMEMBER.
We need to breathe....slow down and BREATHE.
Let's all try to slow down and maybe we can slow down the rotation of the world to slow time. We need to take time to enjoy our brief time on this wonderful planet.
When I have asked relatives who were elderly and close to passing what they regretted, many have said they wished they had spent more time having FUN. They wished they had taken more time to walk in the woods, hug their kids and grandkids, taken more time to travel, dance and laugh.
Their time was over. Our time is now. We must all remember to take the time. We need to have NO regrets.
Let's stop and take deep healing belly breaths.
1.As you inhale send the air deep into your lungs and make your belly go out. This is belly breathing. It fills up the lungs.
2.Take three deep breathes and feel the energy surging through your body.
3.Close your eyes and feel this healing energy circling and calming your systems.
We can do this one breath and one walk in the woods at a time.
If you are feeling stressed and need some time to yourself, contact me to schedule a massage and to learn more breathing techniques. I would love to help you destress. If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live? Also, check out the class schedule on my site. I offer meditation, drumming and yoga classes.
