The key to your health

After every tiring day we all need to relax and enjoy the life. I started looking for the best way to relax and feel the life around me, because the life isn’t only work, work and again work… If you think I’m right, So you have your own way to enjoy life or you’re like me and are still looking for other options to feel good.

Do you want to know what I found ? I’m sure you want ๐Ÿ™‚ So here are some tips to help you feel at ease and make you feel better.

You can start with practice breathing techniques: Slow down your breathing and actively concentrate on it. This is always the easiest way to self-calm, provided you remember to resort to it.
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Inhale deeply as you count to five, hold your breath for five seconds, then exhale slowly, counting to five. Do this ten times to relax your muscles and nerves. As you breathe out, visualize the stress and tension leaving your body through your breath.

Play some relaxing music like this song:


Start practice positive thinking: Positive thinking isn’t about wishful or dreamer thinking; it’s about making the most of the situations that you find yourself in and avoiding any tendency to add negative overlays. Use visualization techniques. While you might not feel calm and relaxed, imagining a calm and relaxed scene in your mind can do wonders to improve your outlook. Picture beaches, lying down resting, going for a hike, etc., to help you stay relaxed.

Use affirmations to change your outlook on life and stop yourself from always jumping to negative conclusions. Affirmations are short, powerful statements that build you up and increase your confidence, helping you to expect positive outcomes. Be careful about the words you choose โ€“ the things you say about yourself over and over again will ensure that you believe your own rhetoric. Use positive, believable, and caring words about yourself.
Teach yourself to step back and see the “big picture” when you’re in the thick of things that don’t seem to be going well. Recognize that most problems are temporary, and minor setbacks on the path to achieving larger goals.

You can try to Meditate: Find a quiet place and focus on calming your mind. There are several different forms of meditation, such as mantras, labyrinths, Sahaja Yoga and Buddhist meditation, among others. Remember that meditation requires practice – the more you practice, the better you’ll get. The internet has a lot of information about this.

If you have leg pain ย or they are just very tired you can try this : Close your eyes. Begin to breathe deeply in through your nose, and out through your mouth. Do this for a few moments, until you feel “settled in”. Just focus on your breathing. When you are ready, tighten every muscle in your feet as hard as you can until it just begins to hurt (or count to ten, whichever you prefer), then immediately relax all of those muscles at the same time. After a few seconds, clench your calf and shin muscles as tightly as possible until they just start to hurt, and then instantly relax them.

If you use some other techniques, share them with usย ย ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. In my life, meditation and yoga have been huge happiness guides! You’ve mentioned meditation, and I’ve gravitated toward mindful meditation. The mindfulness meditation practice I turn to when I am most stressed and unable to meditate is the Body Scan. It helps a lot with the headaches I get from stress. Jon Kabat-Zinn–the creator of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)–is my Body Scan guide of choice. And I don’t make a commission from saying that. There are just so many kinds of meditation tools out there that people often ask for recommendations. :~) His CDs can be found at http://www.mindfulnesstapes.com.

    My yoga practice has gone in the mindfulness direction, too. Yoga can be intimidating if it is seen as only for people who are flexible or athletic, but there are a lot of teachers out there who don’t see yoga this way and are teaching it from a mindfulness perspective–encouraging students to deeply feel and experience the postures rather than judging themselves against some idea of a perfect posture or comparing themselves with other students. These teachers are teaching their students something much more profound than a posture–how to be in their bodies in an intentional, compassionate way.

    So my longwinded answer to your question about what I do to stay happy: mindful yoga and the Body Scan–I really depend on those practices to keep me connected to my body in the present moment. And they can get me centered enough for a seated meditation practice, which has become really important, too. Central.

    Thanks for asking! I love your blog!

  2. I really like the affirmation idea! I think I might start playing around with that ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you for the great ideas!

  3. What do I do to be happy? Well, I teach and practice a LOT of yoga. (thanks for following my yoga website!) I do meditation, breathing, that helps. But the MAIN thing that helps me is really simple, a jewel to me. I try to be as silly as I can whenever I can! Yoga can be very disciplined, meditation too. And that’s a good thing for us who need to train our brains to let go, let go, let go.

    But for me, what brings me joy is singing with my friends, dancing in the middle of the living room, talking to the animals in the pond near our apartment, pretending to be a whale and making whale noises, getting my yoga classes to dance and sing, all of this is what really lifts my heart. Namaste!

  4. I have nominated you for the Sunshine and Versatile Awards. Congratulations and thank you for all of your great work and contributions to the blogging community!

  5. Maybe it’s not the most spiritual activity, but the technique that really works for me is cooking something special. Colors, perfumes, tastes, everything reminds me that life is bigger than a long day at work and also that time matters!

  6. I’ve been enjoying your blog. You truly do have some excellent advice on being happy. I loved the music from this post and the video of the young men handing out gifts to the homeless in another post. Thanks so much for sharing.
