Stress – how do you react to it?

Stress – how do you react to it?

Stress….we all experience it at time.
Do you know the signs of stress?

Have you had times when you feel very stressed? I’m pretty sure you have. We all go through stressful times in our lives.

Life has its ups and downs and we just have to find ways of how to deal with them. It can be “interesting” to watch our bodies physical effects on “difficult or stressful” days. Do you think about what your thoughts are at the time and your feelings?

It can sometimes be helpful to “check” your body awareness.

Here is what you can do:

1. Be aware of the times when you are stressed or overwhelmed; how does it make you feel? What happens in your body when you feel this way?

2. Then observe your anxiety reactions; where do you start to hold the tension, what physical effect has it?

3. Watch your own reactions; what do you do with the feelings that occurred in your body when the stressful or overwhelmed event occurred?

4. If your “stressful” event made you recall a past unpleasant event – how did your body react and how did this make you feel?

5. Think about a time when you where hurt, either physically, mentally or emotionally; take notice in what body parts that feels tight and where you have stored that tightness.

By observing yourself and your reaction, and your body – you will notice how your physical and emotional sides are connected; hence you will become more BODY AWARE.

So if you are feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed, take some time to take a deep slow breath and observe the tension leaving your body.

An evening of Love, Peace and Harmony

An evening of Love, Peace and Harmony

Aspire hosted a Free workshop last night – the 5th of February – A Universal Peace Solution.

I first met Nick, who presented the workshop, just a week before as he dropped in to Aspire Wellbeing. My intuition said straight away that I wanted to support him in his passion for spreading global peace and sharing the solution to it. His presentation goes through the science behind meditation – that when a large group of people unite, and create, coherent, heart based emotions, we can intentionally influence the field that sustain all life on the planet.

The presentation empower anyone who feels helpless in the world and presents evidence that shows we each possess the internal technology to create lasting change.

A few days before the event I took a chance to have a chat with Nick to get to know him a little better through doing a facebook live. See below.

Here is also a couple of photos from the night:

Do you keep a journal?

Do you keep a journal?

I love journalling and I also find it a beneficial thing for all my clients. Do you journal?

Keeping a daily journal has many positive benefits. Daily Journaling can help with personal growth and development. By regularly recording your thoughts you will gain insight into your behaviors and moods.

There is a lot of power in the written word but occasionally words are hard to find. You can then draw or make a collage that represents how you feel.

Here are some Journaling tips to get you started

1. Write about where you are in your life at this moment. Describe your living situation, your work, and your relationships. Are you right where you want to be?

2. For five to ten minutes just start writing in a “stream of consciousness” Don’t edit your thoughts or feelings and don’t correct your grammar. Don’t censor your thoughts.

3. Write down what you are grateful for (at least 3 things every day). This could also contain a daily list of things you appreciate. It can also contain quotes.

5. Take pictures of yourself and things you love. You can take pictures, draw colors or shapes or collage images. Learn to love and accept yourself just the way you are today.

6. Write down things about the weather and the nature around you and what you appreciate about it.

7. Write down what things you are doing today that is going to have a positive impact on your Wellbeing. What exercise you have done, meditation, healthy eating etc.

7. Maintain a log of successes. Write down your daily successes. They don’t have to be huge once. As you pay attention to your successes, small or big, your list of successes will grow and inspire you.

8. Write down your current favorite songs. Write down why you like them and what moods they trigger and how they make you feel.

9. If there’s something you are struggling with or an event that’s disturbing you, write about it in the third person. This will give you distance and provide a new perspective. Write down what you learned about yourself.

10. Develop your intuition. Write down questions or concerns then take a deep breath and listen for a response from your Higher Self. Let yourself write automatically. If you don’t get an answer right away, look for signs during the day.
