Quick Fixes for Your Body!… Well, the first thing is always AWARENESS. If I can be aware of the stress…in my case I love to somaticize…meaning I feel it in my body. And also , It is hard even if I am feeling my neck tense up… to change my focus…if I am fixated on getting something done.
How about you? Do you become just a little obsessed when you are focused on getting something done?
Nonetheless I do not like pain so I go for a walk and shake it out! Doing something physical always helps!
Basically I change the channel…as you might on a television set…and one way to refocus is using physical activity, using the body action!
What is your favorite activity? How do you release your stress physically?
Although we can speak of them separately our Body, Mind and Emotions are deeply related and our consciousness is the awareness through which we experience them.
I like to say the Body is the focal point of the now. The more present we can be in our bodies the more well we are or on our way to feeling better!
It is key to your wellness to find a physical activity you love to do. You will find it changes over time or even from season to season. When I turned another decade it was time to stop my ballet class and turn to something less demanding. No grand pliés for me…my two knee operations from so many dancing years ago had come up to bite me. I felt tired also, it was time to change. I have found an activity that dove tails with my hands-on work Vibrational Acupuncture. I feel Wonderful! I also walk every day and rent a dance studio to do my own thing all by myself, 1500 feet of empty space. This is me for me.
What do you do that’s just for You?
I suggest you walk 20 minutes a day. If you cannot walk turn on the dance music and dance even if you are setting down. Definitely move and get your groove. And I will teach you all about body awareness…stay tuned!
