Belinda's Top Tips to Destress
Music: Your favourite music can help bring you into the present moment. When we listen to music it’s a portal to the now and has the power to relax us or create elevated emotions.
Breathwork: Our breath is one of the fastest ways we can change how we feel. When we focus on a long deep exhale it can help us to let go of the day, let go of old energy and also reduce the carbon dioxide load in the body, which is often a cause for us feeling tired.
Water: Water is an amazing energy and emotional cleanser, even just washing your hands and face after a long day can refresh you, or soak in a ritual bath filled with essential oils and magnesium salts for the ultimate relaxation.
Move: Shaking the body, dancing or exercising are all great for helping you destress after a long day – especially if your desk bound for most of the day. Energy often builds up inside of us when we are stressed at work and releasing this energy with physical movement can make us feel so much better. Hit the gym or even get off the tube a station early and listen to a favourite song on the way home.
Meditate: There are many types of meditation, but at the end of the day we want to go for one that helps to release stress. Start with breathe of fire, where you rapidly exhale, and then go into long slow deep breathing as you scan your body. Any areas that feel extra tense breathe into and imagine the tension releasing with the exhale. As the body relaxes so will the mind. This kind of practices takes us into an alpha brainwave state that helps us to feel more relaxed and creative.
