Often times we don’t think we can do much to enjoy our lives or be more relaxed.  Not so!  Here are 5 easy ways to bring more ease and balance into your life-

1) Stop and breathe.  By slowing down and focusing on your breath, you can bring down your stress and blood pressure.

2) Notice what’s going on around you.  Too often we get lost in the past or future, and are not present to what is happening right now.  Being present helps you to appreciate what is so right now.

3) Be Grateful.  Instead of focusing on the things that aren’t going the way you want, notice and give thanks to the wonderful things already in your life.

4) Laugh- Don’t take life so seriously, look for the humor and enjoy a good belly laugh!  Laughter releases stress and makes us feel good!

5) Chose what is really important to you.  Act upon what is important to you, say no to what is not.  By doing so you are setting your boundaries and living according to your values!

I challenge you to try some of these tips and see yourself relaxed!!

Ok, so I have been spending alot of time discussing awareness. Let’s now tie that to your wellbeing. Like I mentioned in the last entry, without the awareness we don’t have conscious choice. Without conscious choice we don’t have control, or responsibility of our wellbeing.

With awareness we are in control, and responsible, for our wellbeing. That said, to improve, or be at our potential best, we need to be aware so to make the choices in alignment with what we say we want.  This is how we access our potential best (See next post on accessing your potential wellbeing).  What better time to stop and be aware than spring!

What do you notice that you notice? Just that we can be aware of life, ourselves, our world..Do you understand the vastness in the awareness we have and the consciousness that we are gifted?  It is immense, unparalleled, amazing.  Most beings on this planet have not been given this special gift, yet most humans aren’t even vaguely aware of the immensity of it all, how special and unique we really are, or that it is even there!

It is so hard to fathom. That we don’t have to live unconsciously, that we can be aware and make choices. So then why don’t we make the best choices at all times? Maybe we do, and our best changes with every moment…But many choices are out of fear, greed, desire, most being unconscious.   I know that human beings have contemplated this for as long as we have been aware of it.  This is really what separates us out from other species lesser evolved.  Or so we think…

So what does this have to do with our wellness? Without this awareness, we can not choose, may not see the connection between what I will do next, and how that aligns with my higher purpose, or the goal that I am trying to attain.  In being aware, we can connect the dots, and have a conscious choice in the direction of our lives, thus affecting our wellbeing.  Making the best choices for ourselves right now. If you were consciously directing your life, what choices would you be making?  How would this affect your wellbeing?

As I break from my studies, I notice the intense focus it takes to prepare for certain events. Stress want to come up, in a usual automatic way, yet, I am practicing just noticing. Have you tried to do that? Just notice without the judgements, rules, shoulds.

I notice how I feel, that I have been thinking, and some worry amongst other things. There is no right or wrong.

This is called witnessing, and it can be a powerful tool.  By witnessing, we are present NOW, not living in the future or the past.  So, I practice as I go about my tasks…

What would you notice if you were to just witness your doings and thoughts?

How often have you found yourself thinking depressing thoughts, belittling attempts at improving yourself, judging your actions, or letting the negative self-talk convince you that you aren’t worth anything, or why bother??

You aren’t alone, though saying that doesn’t make it any better. The reason people need ‘outside’ help, like a coach, is because they often don’t see the greatness in themself, and have not been trained to focus on this.  But it possible, and those thoughts aren’t true.  Really.

Is it conditioning, perfection, expectations that get in the way? And can we learn to move beyond, and really acknowledge the big, wonderful person that we are?  Absolutely, it just takes practice, training, knowledge, and a belief in you! And sometimes someone to lean on until you stand firmly on your own…

What better than a new year’s resolution? Being your best every day. What is your best? You know what that is for you. And every day it changes.

So what is critical is not allowing judgement, assumption, negative thought or opinion sway or influence your view on what is your best. Only you can say. If you want more on this, go read The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz (http://www.miguelruiz.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6:the-four-agreements&catid=13:books&Itemid=7).

It takes practice to think different, let alone do different things to be healthier.  But, it starts with an idea, a thought.  When you are ready to explore and change the landscape of your mind and actions, I am here to help.  Visit Wellness in Balance, www.wellnessinbalance.com for more information.
