Hello everyone. I hope you all had a great week so far. Today I would like to welcome you back to my beauty and personal care blog. I guess everybody knows what I'm talking about. You come home – late. You feel tired, exhausted, totally stressed. At work you even started to bite your nails because of the pressure. But now it's time for you to relax, to get rid off the tension carried around all day long like a burden lying heavily on your shoulders. Take sometime for yourself. Just a few minutes and relax.
Today I tell you how. I will show you some very basic but effective relaxation techniques. If you practice these exercises regularly every day, you will feel much better, stay calm, even under pressure, and improve the overall quality of your entire life.
During a long day at work, especially if you work a lot on the computer, it is very helpful to relax your eyes from time to time. Therefore, focus a point in the distance. Just watch out of the window. You can pick anything: a tree, a pole, a small building.
Now sit straight and gaze at your point for a few minutes. Breath in and out. Slowly. Steadily. And don't forget to blink. If you are at home you can even light up a candle. This has a very calming and soothing effect.
Listen to Music
Especially classical music is very beneficial for relaxation. The soft sounds and steady rhythms often lead to a relaxed state while listening. If you do not have classical music at home, choose slow and quiet music. Also another way is to purchase special music for relaxation. The great shopping website https://www.gebraucht-kaufen.at/entspannungsmusik offers good deals and bargains on relaxation music.
Now lie down and make sure you are undisturbed for the next half hour. Turn on the music and only listen to these sounds. It is very likely that you will find it very annoying that other thoughts will sneak into your mind very quickly and will disturb you listening to the music. But don't be put off. Let your thoughts come and go again.
Another more advanced relaxation technique is meditation. There are lots of different methods available. That's why I will only focus on the very basics here.
First off, sit down. You can either sit cross-legged on the floor or upright on a chair. Don't lie down because you can fall asleep quite easily. Also make sure you won't be disturbed for the next 15 to 20 minutes. Put your hands loosely on your upper legs. You can even fold them slightly.
Keep your back straight and take a few deep breaths. Then slowly close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Breath in and out slowly. Try to feel the breath when you take it in. Try to sense how he fresh air floods your entire body. Try to trace the way of the breath. Let go of any thoughts. Solely focus on your breathing. If some thoughts are creeping up, just be aware of them. Don't judge them. Slowly try to breath them out.
Especially for beginners, meditation can be really hard. But a good way is to buy some guided meditation tracks or CDs. They will guide you through the entire process. I found a great selection of cheap meditation CDs at the for sales website https://www.gebraucht-kaufen.at/meditation.
Once you get used to meditation, you can increase the timespan slowly. Sometimes I meditate for about 45 minutes or even a hole hour. The more you practice, the more skilled you will become to let go of your thoughts and stress.
