Discover how easy it is to Relax
By the time you finish this short article, you will feel more relaxed, blissful and at peace with your life.
I am sure you know how important relaxation is in life. Many studies have proven that stress is the leading cause of many physical, mental and emotional illnesses.
Here is a secret that many people don't know: Stress is created out of the resistance to the present moment.
What does this mean?
In this moment, your mind is running a mile a minute. Take a moment and notice your thoughts, what you are thinking about.
Thoughts consist of what you think you have to do in the future, what you want in the future, memories from the past.
Yet you are alive in this moment, the idea of the future or the past is only in your mind, it is a fantasy that you live in, thus avoiding this moment.
The greater your resistance to this moment, the greater the stress.
So the first thing to do is accept.
Instead of thinking about what you have to do, what you want, what is not right in this moment, allow it all to be as it is. Allow your life to be as it is. Everything that you are worried about, fear, think you have to do, allow it to be. Accept that it is there and let it be. Allow all of your thinking to be. Even if you are thinking how it should be different than it is, allow those thoughts to be. Allow your thinking to be as it is, allow your feeling to be as it is. Whether you feel happy or sad, pleasure or pain, let it be completely in this moment.
The second thing to do is breathe and be aware of your breathing.
Breathing always happens in the present moment. So when you are aware of your breathing, you are aware of the moment. When you feel stressed, you shorten your breath, you breath irregularly, repress your breath.
So breath deeply and notice your breathing, while allowing this moment to be as it is.
Do this right now, close your eyes, allow all of your thinking, and feeling to be as it is and breathe. If thoughts come, let them come, let them go, but continue to watch your breathing. Do this for thirty seconds. I guarantee you will feel much better.
Did you do it? You feel more peaceful, yes?
This alone will save you from therapy, medication, illness. Because in this experience of accepting and breathing, you are no longer resisting life. But you have to commit to doing this.
So try to be conscious in every moment to breathe and accept the moment as it is. To allow feelings and thoughts to be as they are. Take a few minutes every day to sit comfortably and do only this. Your health will improve, your happiness will increase and a new found sense of peace, love and bliss will grow like wildflowers.
