My Mother’s Day Gift to You – Stress Free Moments
It’s Mother’s Day. The one day of the year when you can spend an entire day on you, doing wonderful things just for you. Without feeling guilty. I invite you to take time out from stress anxiety to relax, release, recharge and rejuvenate.
Start Your Day with Stress Free Moments
Ease into your day. Just by focusing on your breathing you can enjoy an easy form of meditation – and a reduction of stress symptoms. You will be keeping your thoughts in the moment. Not worrying about the problems of yesterday or tomorrow.
*Quiet Joy Every Morning
Take a moment to gaze out a window. Savor the joy of morning. Drink in the wonders of nature. Look up at the sky. Stop and allow yourself to be in awe of the grandeur of the vast sky with its crisp dawn colors or muted grays and the brilliance of the sunrise. Look for the changing patterns and faces in the clouds (remember when you were a child?).
Allow your gaze to glide over the majestic trees…their distinct shapes…their patterned limbs and sway of leaves. Listen to the morning sounds. Or quiet stillness – the morning hush. Stay in this beautiful moment. Just feel. Let the feeling flow. Let it slowly flow.
A word will come to you – this is really “peaceful, relaxing, soothing, calming, etc.” That’s your cue to close your eyes. Inhale slowly, mentally repeating your word. Hold your breath a few seconds and then slowly exhale. If a worry crosses your mind, say to yourself, “Not now. This is my moment, my time, my space, my peace of mind.
Inhale slowly, deeply, bringing oxygen and energy flowing through your body. Exhale. Repeat this breathing exercise until you are ready to open your eyes and continue on with your day.
