We've listed below FIVE TIPS FOR RESETTING A POSITIVE FRAME.
At Audacious Health we frequently observe the relationship between one's feelings and levels of stress and its impact to health.
Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?
I don’t know about everyone else, but I have had some difficulty with sleep in the last week. Sleep is a topic we’ve often mentioned – why – because it is so important. A lack of sleep negatively affects your wellbeing, and with a less than ideal mental and physical state, it starts to negatively impact other areas in our lives - like forgetting things, doing things slower than normal, etc.
So, during winter, we suggest that you maintain good digestive health, maintain exercise and keep up good sleep habits so that you wake well rested and energized for the day.
We all would like to have less stress in our lives. It is good to stop and reflect on how our lives would improve if we had less stress. Make a list of the reasons for wanting less stress. This list will be what motivates us to actually implement some changes and take action to reduce stress and to cope better with it.
For example, when I have less stress, I will have more energy. With more energy, I will:-
* spend more time playing with the kids
* improve efficiencies at work
What is Qi Gong and how can help with stress?
Often find ourselves overworked, stressed and fatigued. One of our favourite ways to help manage stress and improve our energy is to have a daily practice of Qi Gong.
Qi Gong is a ‘moving mediation’ practice that is over 5000+ years old. The movements (like Tai Chi) are soft yet powerful, working the breath and working the energy meridian channels. There is mindfulness in the movements whilst being in a state of relaxation.
