Centering Exercises And Some Wellness Tips
Oct 20, 2019
Being unwell not only throws a kink in our schedule, and it can also cause you more anxiety especially if you have a deadline to meet. But being unwell, can also make you surrender and this is an important trait we must develop.
Learning to surrender is so important for our well-being, not only physically or spiritually, but psychologically as well. I would definitely want to expand more on the topic of surrendering, more on this soon!
I lost my voice completely on Thursday for a few days with a bad throat and cough, and this meant no voice or video recordings which pushed my marketing schedule back. I did my centering exercises daily to make sure I wasn’t going off balance emotionally or mentally.
So I would like to share these exercises and wellness tips with you:
Because we need energy to recover, conserving them, not expending them is the key to the right balance. We often do not pay attention to this, but we end up stressing our bodies even more while we are trying to recover
If you are so unwell that you are not able to move, how do you centre yourself? Lay in bed facing up and focus on your breathing, allow yourself to become aware of your muscles relaxing starting with your toes, and moving all the way up to the top of your head. This not only helps you to relax physically but helps to release the tension on the emotional and mental levels.
If you’re unwell but still physically functional but perhaps your mind is foggy or you may be feeling very sensitive emotionally, here’s what you can do to centre yourself: Besides the exercise recommended above, where you can do it sitting, standing or lying down, you may also like to go outdoors and be supported and energised by the energies of nature. Avoid the crowded malls, because places like these have a tendency to take more energies away from you if you do not know how to guard your energies. While you’re outdoor in nature, make a connection with the beautiful scenery around you or with the biggest tree you can find. Just by feeling grateful for the shelter given to you by the tree is a way of feeling a connection. This way you’re feeding on the energies of nature to heal and recover. Just 10 minutes will make a difference.
If you’re unwell and you still need to be at work, be sure to drink plenty of water not just for your physical wellness, but also for your emotional/mental strength as water is a powerful emotional stabiliser.
And of course, the most obvious but not always remembered is not to get into an emotional tussle or arguments with anyone when you’re unwell. Letting things slide for now and not allow them to throw you off balance will aid you in your recovery. (I know, but somehow, when you’re unwell it is when emotional issues have a tendency to surface!)
I'm going to sign off now, to keep my own balance since I am still on the road to recovery.
