Why we are more Overwhelmed Now

Why we are more stressed now than ever before!

Quality of life has suffered. Health has been affected. The rate of change has accelerated. Productivity can be jeopardized. We are “running” faster than ever and do not feel like we can ever catch up! Personal and professional support is draining away.

Quieting the Mind – Slowing Mental Chatter

  1. Quieting the Mind – Slowing Mental Chatter

Easier said than done. It all begins with the breath. Relaxing the body, deeply, leads to a more quiet mind and reduces the distractions of fear, anxiety, and a body experiencing stress. Eastern philosophies ask to focus the mind a calming word/picture/concept (of a “higher ideal”) but this can require discipline and can be difficult for the Western (ADD) mental process. Zen can work because you can keep your eyes open and focus a natural beauty such as: waves on the beach, a stream flowing by, a candle (or fire) burning, or the breeze gently blowing the tops of grasses or trees. For people willing to “work” harder to learn to quiet the mind, you can repeat a mantra which is a word, or phrase, or higher ideal. The words: “Peace,” “Love,” and “Calm” can work well. Or, try using an image of a flower or a pleasant “Mandala” to focus and calm your mind. A powerful tool, which is worth trying, is to repeat “I AM” phrases as you breathe slowly. An example: I am at peace with myself and fully relaxed, or I am loved, or I am blessed…

Relaxing the Body – Connecting with Body

  1. Relaxing the Body – Connecting with Body

Relaxing the body can be key to connecting with your body, quieting your mind, improving your focus (and enhancing productivity,) and connecting to the “source.” Using a “Western” based relaxation technique such as Autogenic Training Phrases can be a good place to start because it uses the mind (instead of trying to still the mind) to focus on the body and to relax the various parts which normally may be holding on to stress. By reducing this stress and relaxing your body you can quiet your mind and then connect with the core of your body to find greater calmness, comfort, and your “heart based” soul/spirit.

Being Present – letting go of distraction

  1. Being Present – letting go of distraction

If you are caught up in the fears and anxiety regarding the “Future” (and the Unknown) or living with the grief, sadness, anger, or shame from an experience of the “Past” then you are not fully “Present” and able to live in Joy. It is difficult to put the fear of the Future or upset from the Past out of your consciousness, however, it is a skill that you can develop AND it will improve your life to know how to do so.

 

Staying within Your Breath – Sharing Breath with all Living Things

  1. Staying within Your Breath – Sharing Breath with all Living Things

Breathing is essential! It is also the key to controlling stress and creating positive meditation.

Every breath allows millions of atoms into your body that you SHARE with ancestors like: Buddha, Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, John Travolta and others including Moses - Charlton Heston (please, find this funny.)…  Yes, they are one with you and shared these same atoms as they walked this earth. Every living organism shares these atoms, in their own way, and this makes us “One” with all living creatures. Connection at this level is “real” and bonding. Slow diaphragmatic can be learned and used as a focusing tool and to promote higher consciousness. Doing this correctly can save you wear and tear. With regular practice and consciousness, it will help with both “grounding” and positive energy healing.
