Full relaxation: how to find peace of mind
How to find peace of mind
The energy that wildlife can give us is hard to overestimate. Accept these gifts with gratitude: look at the sea surface, listen to the sound of waves, finger sand and touch your palm to the rough surface of the rocks. Find a couple of minutes and carefully examine the flower: how perfectly harmonious its nature created! Stand next to the trunk of a centenary tree, touch its bark - and feel your own roots and the strength that you can get from the earth. Do not be shy, hug a tree, touch your forehead to the trunk, “recharge” with its energy and serenity.
Creativity is the best way to meet “other” oneself - one who sincerely loves life, knows how and is not afraid to express her feelings, knows her strengths and weaknesses. Dancing, singing, playing musical instruments, embroidery, drawing - all this helps to find peace of mind, but only on condition that you do it with joy, and not by duty. Pay attention to such a way of creative expression as calligraphy. The art of beautiful writing is not in a hurry, it helps to learn concentration, contemplation, "inner look", achieve balance. Creating hieroglyphs, you will come to a special state: you will feel the energy of the brush, the magic of the gesture with which it touches the paper and embodies the strength and grace of the line. Each stroke, each point has its own meaning, and you reflect in them your feelings and thoughts - and the beauty of every moment of your life. This is the way to peace of mind and balance.
Breathe deeper for harmony and peace of mind
Stress, haste, a high pace of life - and our connection with our own body is becoming weaker. It seems that there is nothing difficult in breathing correctly: what could be more natural? But from fatigue and anxiety, we often and shallowly breathe, we get less oxygen. Special breathing techniques will help you relax and deal with stress.
- Try diaphragmatic breathing: place your palm on your stomach, take a slow breath and exhale - the hand should rise and fall. Can you maintain this rhythm? Now take a deep breath and exhale so that the exhalation is longer than the inhalation: you will feel warmth and heaviness in the arms and legs. Help the body become soft: relax the muscles of the face, especially the forehead, “release” the lower jaw.
- Full breathing allows you to use the entire volume of the lungs. Exhale completely, while inhaling, pull out the upper abdomen, then gradually expand the chest, at the end of the inhale raise your shoulders (the stomach will retract). With an exhale, lower your shoulders and relax your stomach. Focus on the rhythm: note the inhale and exhale, feel how the body responds to it.
- Asana “shavasana”, which ends every yoga lesson, is a wonderful method of deep relaxation: it is obtained by everyone without exception and helps to truly relax. For proper shavasana, lie on the floor, close your eyes. Your consciousness remains active - you observe the process of relaxation “from the side”. Take a deep breath and exhale, begin to relax the muscles, gradually shifting your attention from top to bottom: face, neck, shoulders, arms, stomach, lower back, hips, ankles, feet. Move your attention all over your body, if you are distracted, gently return yourself to the present moment. You can stay in the “shavasana” for 10-20 minutes: leave the asana slowly, calmly, with a deep breath. So you can find health and peace of mind.

Joy of communication
Summer meetings with friends are a special pleasure. If in the cold season you agreed to sit somewhere, first check the schedule for a long time, then meticulously choose a cafe, and at the last moment you are ready to change your mind, then the height of summer is a completely different matter! Spontaneous meetings are like a small celebration: you do not have time to look around when you are sitting with friends on a shady veranda, and an endlessly long evening is ahead. Drinks with ice, tanned legs and a bright manicure, and you can not do without dessert, and most importantly, talk about everything in the world. After all, a girlfriend is exactly the person with whom we are “on the same wavelength”, who knows you well, who can give advice or an honest answer on time and do without criticism. With whom you can laugh heartily, it’s stupid to joke, or suddenly frankly tell something that takes your breath away. Yes, a good relationship requires attention: the balance between “taking” and “giving” is important, but the result is worth it. “Hello, hello! I missed. Meet me? ”
Moments of loneliness
The life of a modern woman is full of events, meetings, deeds, conversations. In the maelstrom of daily worries, she does not have time to think about herself, about her desires and be alone. Meanwhile, this is extremely important - for the restoration of mental strength and energy "reboot". Take the time! Go alone for a walk (in the city - to the park, in the country - to the nearest forest or to the river bank) - to where there are few people. Do not rush, do not run, do not think about business, problems, purchases. Turn off the phone. Stop, look at the sky, at the nature around. Listen to yourself, to your feelings. Feel the peace and peace of mind.

Nervous tension is relieved by Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Tchaikovsky's Sentimental Waltz, Chopin's Lullaby, and Vivaldi's Seasons.

Tasty moments of life
Today, everyone lives at high speeds and increasingly complain that they are only 24 hours away. The irony of our time: modern technologies are designed to save our time, and we use this time to solve even more problems, do even more things ... The bottom line is that the pace of life is accelerating, and we feel total fatigue, irritation and emotional discomfort. That’s why it is so important from time to time to say to yourself: “Slow down!” Stop, observe the surrounding world and organize your own holiday.
Go to the cottage. Set the table on the terrace. Take out the beautiful dishes. Make a refreshing cocktail for light snacks. Play with ice cubes in a glass. Focus on what's happening here and now. Take a look around. Feel yourself a part of this world. Hear the wind rustling with leaves and the bees buzzing busily. Take a deep breath of the air: it has a floral aroma, an odor of earth. See how beautifully the sun is refracted by the decanter. Admire the fruit on the table. Bite a peach, chew it slowly, catching all the nuances of taste. Mmm ... It turns out that for happiness, and the truth is, not so much is needed.
Give yourself the word that at least once a month you will arrange “lazy dinners” for yourself and your loved ones. On this day you will cook something new, unusual. Take care of the serving. And at this time, none of you will stop flipping through social networks, watching TV or mentally solving everyday problems. Let the whole world (at least a little) wait!
Calm and good mood
A few rules of peace of mind. Most importantly, try to think about the good. Do not wind yourself up, do not sort out negative moments in your memory, do not succumb to negative emotions. Thoughts are material: thinking about the bad, we ourselves are programming for trouble. Even if failures happen, try to find something with a plus sign (experience is already good!), And ask yourself: “In a month, will this problem excite me as much?” And most importantly: in a month will it still be a problem? ” If not, maybe now you should not spend your emotions and energy on it? Peace of mind is directly related to a good mood. Proven fact: a child of 6 years old smiles and laughs on average 300 times a day. An adult person (even the one about whom it is customary to speak of an optimist and the soul of a company) smiles only 15-30 times a day. Smile more often! Just like that: your reflection, the sun, passers-by ... And also learn to be grateful. Many things can disturb you: the weather, relationships with colleagues, the transition period of the child, an extra couple of kilograms ... And you try to say "thank you" for the good that you have. Attentive husband, comfortable home, despite the teenage riot, beloved child. From the global, go to the little things: “It's great that I bought a skirt yesterday, it suits me very much, and in the evening I will have an hour for my favorite series, and we are waiting for guests on weekends ...” Do you feel how the mood is increasing ?! Rejoice at life! Think positively. Be happy!
