When was the last time you relaxed your mind and body at the same time on a weekday? I don’t mean you have to go away to Hawaii or Bali for a holiday. You can do it while being busy with your work. You can do it while taking a hot shower in the evening. You can do it while having a debate over your company’s budget sessions. In fact, you can do it at any time of the day and night. You may be interested to know how to make it possible. Here are a few tricks I have tried and got visible results.
You are working on a complex project in your work-cubicle. You have a deadline to complete it within the next few hours. Your colleagues outside the cubicle are talking about a holiday program in the Caribbean Islands. Though you can’t hear them clearly, your mind will try to concentrate and listen to what they are talking about. You try to bring your mind back to your project work, but it is becoming difficult. What would you do?
The first option is to pull the curtains in your cubicle and continue to work. The second option is to go out and join them for the next few minutes. Tell them you want to go, if they choose a weekend. Then you can come back to your cubicle and resume your work.
There also a third option. Pull the plugs in your mind and turn off the receptors. That means you temporarily become deaf to what they speak and blind to anything that is going on outside your work-cubicle. How can you do that?
You can perform meditation while sitting, standing, reclining, working, or performing any other activity. Close your eyes for a few minutes and start breathing deeply through both your nostrils. Imagine you are near the beaches of Bahamas. Stay still for a few minutes and let go of any thoughts that pass through your mind. You can feel your mind relaxing and letting go of everything that is disturbing.
Accepting chaos as a part of your professional life can be soothing and relaxing. Your colleague may disturb you by playing rock music while you are working on a precision design project. You may get invitations from your colleagues at the espresso coffee machine.
You have to be consistent in your work schedule. Things may slow down at times due to uncontrollable factors. You have to observe what exactly is going on around you and how they impact your thinking. Cut off all the communications and be within the core of your work.
Initially, you may find it difficult. Sometimes it would seem to be impossible. But you have to hang onto the present moment. You can experience significant changes in your lifestyle after a few weeks of consistency.
I have been working on the practical implantation of receptor switch off. I have experienced considerable changes even in my health and fitness because I do my workouts more efficiently now.
One of the most disconcerting of issues is of mental health among the population as has been noticed in the past. There are some easy to do and simple actions which can ensure a calm and serene mind no matter the provocation. They can be listed out in the below.
There never is a readymade formula for good physical or mental health. It is often a combination of factors than a single element to the health issue.
Hi, and welcome to my blog on living a healthy lifestyle through chiropractic massages. Why would you choose the relatively unknown treatment, when there are plenty of other known and proven methods of treatments? For example, you could consider physiotherapy, acupuncture, and others. The difference is in the adjustment and manipulation of the spinal cord and the connecting nervous system through natural procedures. Let’s consider the basic principles of chiropractic massage.
The muscles on the left and right sides of the spine are extensor, erector spine, gluteal, and other Para-spinal muscles. They have a complex structure with the exterior, intermediate, and interior layers. The external muscles are very close to the skin layer. The connectivity between these three layers is very sensitive.
Your body’s sitting; sleeping, standing, and sitting postures can have a great impact on the structural stability of these muscles. Any misalignment can lead to stress and strain. In the beginning, you may not be able to realize the long term consequences, because the impact is low. For example, you may get lower back pain. Then it could extend slowly to the upper spine and reach the neck.
Medications and other forms of treatments provide only temporary relief. The symptoms can return when the effects of medications reduce with time.
Muscle kneading is a form of chiropractic massage, which can reach the interior layers and set right the structural alignment. The results are permanent and irreversible. Hence, the effectiveness is stated to be for many years.
Chiropractors use essential oils for the muscle kneading massage. It results in the decreasing of stress and tension between the muscle layers. It can heal the pain and remove all the toxic elements within the three muscle layers.
Spinal adjustment massages focus on the three sections on your spinal cord. The chiropractor starts the massage from the coccyx section. Here, the massaging will be slow and deep. He will also set right any misalignments between the lower back muscles and the spinal cord tail-end. In many cases, the adjustments can result in long-term healing of the neuromuscular system also.
Adjustments of the lumbar vertebrae can lead to healthier back and Para-spinal muscles. These treatments can improve the strength and stamina of the entire spine and the backbone. I have personally experienced the magical effects after going through the chiropractic massages.
The methods focus on fine-tuning the nervous system which connects to the thoracic vertebrate that is at the middle of the back. The layer extends up to the shoulder muscles.
Chiropractic massage on this layer can activate the entire nervous system that connects to the cardiovascular, skeletal, and neuromuscular parts of the body. The body becomes more agile and active than ever before. My chiropractor friend has treated many men and women in the age groups of 70+. All of them have been able to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle so far.
A healthy lifestyle starts from a firm spine and strong muscles. Chiropractic massages can restore the fitness conditions at any age for the men and women.
When a person is considered healthy, it is both his body and mind that is being considered. The physical part can be kept well and healthy by adopting a healthy diet and sufficient exercise. The mental or the psychological part is rather difficult to measure and rectify most of the time. It is here that certain performance parameters work to identify the causes of illness and to suggest ways to alleviate them to the maximum. It is never possible to find the perfect human being and it is often the need to remain healthy that scores over the rest of the factors.
When it comes to the health issues with people, it takes on different meaning each time. What works for an individual does not apply to another. But the most striking part is that it is possible to have a relaxed and peaceful mind if the attitude is just right. The thought has been proven to be much powerful compared to other facilities that a person enjoys.
The status of individual health depends on the physical and psychological aspects. A sound mind can be the stepping stone to a healthy and fit body. As a fitness trainer, I have seen many young men and women wasting their lives due to an unhealthy state of mind. There are many causes of the problem. They could be depression, anxiety, fear, low self-esteem, and related factors. Of course, you can find many causes for such negative effects. They could be in the form of addiction and an unhealthy lifestyle.
Having a positive attitude towards life can transform your thinking pattern. Ultimately, it will change your living style and pattern. I have seen many youth taking life too seriously. They plan for the next ten years. They dream of owning an apartment, having a car, and lading a luxurious life. But unfortunately, they forget about today. Plans can be for years, but the action can be one-day at a time. Accomplishing today’s tasks can give you a deep sense of satisfaction. You don’t need to depend on any external elements to keep you happy and contented.
Having smaller goals can also keep you motivated for continuing with your progressive mindset. Your mind will be relatively free from stress. You will start loving your profession. Your contribution will be much more than your own expectations. For this, you have to stop worrying about the output. It could be tough in the beginning. But you can condition your mind gradually. You may find it tough until the threshold is reached. Then the process will become natural.
You can get a stress-free mind by taking responsibility and eliminating blame. Of course the other may be at fault. You can try not to blame an individual for his actions and make him realize his mistakes. He will accept and the stressful situation will melt away. Try admitting your mistakes without regrets and guilt.
Acceptance of people, situations, conditions, and things as they are can be the most transforming factor. Your mind will be like a crystal clear glass. Thoughts pass through without affecting your mind. Try and observe your thoughts without any interpretations and judgments. Grasp only those thoughts that are useful to you. Ignore the negative thoughts. They will pass away like clouds.
Mindful meditation through breath focus is a good way of focusing your mind onto a positive lifestyle. Acceptance lets you focus on any object of your choice without distraction. It is because your mind is clean and calm. You can start breath focus for five minutes. Then you can increase it by five minutes every day. You can reach 30 minutes within a few days. It should be sufficient to keep your mind in a healthy condition.
Anger against someone can turn into lifetime resentments. If you can’t handle someone, move away from that place for a few minutes, hours, or even days. You can avoid resentments. Start practising every day and you can have a really have a healthy and natural lifestyle.
