Wednesday Wellness: De-stressing Superpowers

By Audra Bergman | In Inspiration, Wellness | on September 5, 2018

Chronic stress is widely understood to be harmful to us, and fast-paced lives can generate a LOT of it. What can we do? Last week, we discussed the many benefits of meditation- it’s like a superhero for a body under stress. Meditation not only focuses the mind, it helps us get out of the “flight or flight” mode induced by stress.

More and more of the world is catching onto this practice, and there are even classes and studios specifically for meditation. Here are some ideas and resources for getting started:

  1. Set your phone or another timer to go off at a time when you can get away by yourself for at least 5 minutes.

You don’t have to ‘sit’ for hours to have a positive effect. Five to ten minutes can make a huge difference in your stress levels.

2.  Find a place to sit comfortably.

This could be in a quiet room, or even outside in a scenic or quiet spot.

3. Set a timer, choose your focus, and sit still with relaxed attention. Setting a timer will relieve you from worrying about watching the clock.

A focus might be your breathing, watching water- like a stream, or it might even be a mantra (something you repeat over in your head to avoid other thoughts). An example of a mantra might be: I am calm, I am relaxed. There are also phone Apps with timers and guided meditations, like “Insight Timer”.

 

Meditation isn’t always easy, especially at first. Start with a few quiet moments to help relieve stress, and keep working on this superpower!
