Move up the emotional scale.
Meditation has gotten so much attention over the last few years and many studies have confirmed the benefits of meditation on a physical and emotional level. The problem is, there are so many different types of meditations that it is easy to get confused as to where you should start.
Don’t underestimate the simplicity of this practice.
Practice Energy Medicine.
Our body has an electrical field around it and throughout it, and energy medicine helps that electricity to flow in unhindered ways. Our modern life combined with stress and electro magnetic fields tend to disrupt our bodies natural energy field which has an effect of less coherent thinking and emotions that can run out of control leading to less than great life choices. Energy medicine is an emerging practice within the alternative circles of mind body health and has more and more studies to back it up scientifically.
Learn a technique that takes 5 minutes a day.
You can learn some techniques that will only take you five minutes a day to perform and will leave your body feeling energised and your mind more coherent to meet the challenges of the day. Practices involve certain movement patterns with breathing, tapping on meridian points and massaging pressure points on your body. One daily practice that is very effective is known as The Daily Energy Routine, which has been created by Donna Eden-one of the worlds leading energy medicine practitioners. You can try this routine below to get an immediate sense of renewal in your body and mind:
The earth has an electrical field around it and our body benefits by having direct contact with our bare feet on it. We have lost our natural connection with the earth in the modern world. It is rare that we actually put our bare feet down on the earth to absorb the earths electrons which has been scientifically proven to reduce pain and inflammation in our body and generally make us feel better. Through the use of our shoes and high rise living and spending long hours indoors in work settings, we often miss an opportunity to simply be on the earth. This leads to feeling less grounded, more scattered and stressed with compromised immune systems.
We need nature.
Being in nature with direct contact with the ground is one of the most beneficial things we can do to feel happier and less stressed. And if the weather prevents us from being able to do this too, there are grounding mats that we can purchase that have been designed to give off the same electrons that the earth gives off and by having contact with these mats such as lying or sitting on them, we can absorb the electrons into our body and reap the same benefits as being in nature.
